A good old fashioned traditional hotel where staff are well trained and attentive. Food well presented and tasted lovely.

We had a great meal, steak was excellent. Was disappointed with the set egg custard, not very good. Possibly look at the cocktail list. Choice of Gins was very good as was the service.

The food was a bit ordinary in parts (Scotch Porky) and fish and chips, the service was friendly but a bit slow and not attentive. Lots of staff walking fast past the table, and lots of water. food and bill, drinks and ordering it was difficult to catch people for.

Always nice -the waiter was great despite a mistake in the order mistakes happen and he dealt with admirably. Always busy so always takes a while to get drinks etc and condiments-maybe leave nearby to save running in and out to the kitchen?

A little disappointed with the food. The lamb was not the best I have had and the chips were soggy. One table was also very noisy which made it difficult to have a normal conversation.

We felt like the waiter was hovering around us which wasn't his fault as it was a quiet Sunday evening. Also, our main dishes came before we had even made a dent in out bread and tapenade starter. This was annoying as we didn't get to just enjoy it and take our time.

I was disappointed by our stay at the Banchory Lodge Hotel. The service staff needed more training especially in the restaurant, both at dinner and breakfast. More knowledge of the menu and of of basic attention to the needs of your patrons. The decor is lovely but staff did not deliver.

Location of hotel is beautiful and in general the staff are all very pleasant but we should have been told that the weekend we were staying there was a wedding in the hotel. Seating options for dinner despite making a reservation were poor, we couldn’t get served for a light lunch the next day because staff seemed to be diverted to the wedding and our room which was very average was above the function room and music from the wedding could be heard loudly until 1am. We did complain about this and we received a reduction on our second night stay which was appreciated. However with the prices being charged the hotel under delivers and it just feels like a lot of money for a very average stay. Hotel needs to invest in a guest lounge and i would suggest that if there is a wedding the hotel is used exclusively for that because they cannot manage both.

Beautiful setting and food. Service was impeccable. The only criticism would be the speed our main came after the starter. Was literally 15 seconds after starter was finished with.. other than that was beautiful food and fantastic service in an idyllic setting. 🙂 wish I had a ring ready for my gf it was that nice 🙂

The way two circular tables were put together for 6 people to dine was not conducive to ease of conversation. The calamari starter was greasy. The cote de boeuf was excellent but the salad was unnecessary. The chips were flaccid and tasteless.
