We’ve been regular visitors to Banchory for 3 years or so now and we always look forward to dining at the Banchory Lodge. The funky decor, music, and the well-dressed and friendly staff make for a really wonderful atmosphere, and the food has been second to none in the area for our past few trips. Most recently we visited with... More

Dear HotelinspectorABZ, We are disappointed to read your review on Trip Advisor. The hotel works very hard on customer service, ambience and food and, as a regular, you will know that what you received recently, is not typical of what we offer. One of the Directors would like to speak to you about your experience. Would you be kind enough... More

Ate here for the first time tonight and will definitely be back. Great food, great service, lovely decor and atmosphere. Very reasonably priced too. Would definitely recommend. Can't wait to go back in the summer so we can enjoy the views.

We recently visited the hotel for lunch on a quiet tuesday afternoon. We had never visited the hotel before but were taken aback by the absolutely beautiful scenery which surrounds the grand country house hotel.
