Firstly, this is a restaurant review, not a hotel stay review. Our daughter opted to go to Banchory Lodge for her birthday dinner with us and her fiance, as she had enjoyed a super dinner there, and we had an excellent lunch a while back.

Booked this hotel in a superior room and loved everything about the place. Lovely room, nice evening menu, great breakfast and beautiful surroundings. Great value and definitely hope to return soon. Banchory is a lovely little place.

Due to unforeseen circumstances we couldn't fly to the USA for our planned Honeymoon. We got a great price on a room for two nights and a relaxing break suited my new Wife and I perfectly. This was a rare taste of luxury for us both, which we could certainly get used to. The cons to others we perhaps enjoyed,...

Living locally we enjoy coming to Banchory Lodge fairly frequently with friends and family - what's not to enjoy! The staff are great - but one wee comment on the menu. We came last night for supper and realised that the menu choices haven't changed in quite a while - we've eaten and enjoyed most of the dishes on the...

Tried it with friends on a recent trip. Food was great. Huge portions. Stand out was the fresh mussels cooked with creme fraiche broth. Super fresh, succulent and perfectly cooked! Amazing. Puddings were average.

Excellent food, great atmosphere and the service is fab. Davut ensured that we were happy with our drinks and food. A great guy who obviously loves his job and is very very good at what he does. My family are staying there and say that it is the perfect place for a relaxing break.
