All good from start to end, we only had the one meal in the bar area, meal was very good, we had a night out elsewhere so this was an overnight stay, using this site for reviews and another (booking.com) we got a very reasonable priced room, very spacious, clean, large bathroom with over bath shower, potions and lotions provided,...

For £130 a night (which is badged as their best rate room), this was a pretty poor experience. The room itself (room 23) had flimsy locks onto a patio which was also directly off an entrance to the restaurant and bar. So noise was an issue. If you have a young child or baby ask not to be put in...

Birthday lunch in bar part of Banchory Lodge. Service was excellent, even tho the place was very busy. One particular waiter held everything together and seemed to have his eye on all needs at every table. Food excellent. Puddings perhaps could offer a wider choice.

The staff of this hotel work hard at seeing to the comfort of the guests. The level of training and management seems high, although we only had a two night stay, from what I saw this is one of the best. What better setting that panoramic views of the River Dee, with a riverside walk as well? The room we...

Met friends here for lunch. Setting is wonderful, and we had a lovely walk before eating. Staff are friendly and helpful. The menu looked OK, but the fish I had (stone bass) was completely tasteless, and the shreaded sprouts were overdone.The dining room is traditional, but looks like it could do with a makeover (not an update). Not over impressed.

I visited the lodge for a large birthday meal/gathering and it has certainly left good impressions. The hotel is in a great location. Set back from the main road, and situated right by a river with plenty of grass and trees around, it feels like a real escape, whilst still easily accessed. We all had a 3 course meal in...
