Almost unbelievable, I’ve visited Banchory Lodge so many times and it has never once disappointed!

We have visited banchory lodge many times as a couple and a family. However, putting aside the friendly personal service we always get from the staff, we found the cost of the meal to be very over priced. Three glasses of wine were over £35 which is an extortionate amount when the bottles themselves are only slightly more than a glass. The food was ok, nothing amazing. The fact that our meal including a tip came in at over £40 per head I find this far too expensive. Although it was a nice evening, I’m not sure I will be rushing back anytime soon.

While I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Banchory Lodge Hotel to anyone this is rather heavily influenced by location. I’ve never had a bad experience but wasn’t overly impressed with my last trip for afternoon tea so wouldn’t recommend it for that. We were greeted, seated and served in a prompt and polite manner however that’s kind of where the service stopped other than delivering our food. My brother had to order another drink for himself up at the bar and we waited a long time for someone to pay us attention in order to ask for the bill even though there seemed to be surplus staff milling around. £19.95 is rather inflated for what we received, maybe add in a prosecco or beer at that price I’d consider it fair. The quality of the food and drinks were very good but the sweet to savoury ratio for afternoon tea was far too heavily tipped on the side of sweet.

First visit here for lunch on a rainy day. It was a cosy and welcoming atmosphere in a beautiful setting. The food and service were just spot on. Servings were just spot on too - you get the choice between small and larger plates. The food seemed very fresh and homemade and locally sourced. Lovely lunch. Will be back again

Lovely meal and excellent service. We were given a table by the window with a lovely view of the Dee. Excellent calm and relaxing atmosphere.

We had a lovely meal with friends in a lively, relaxing atmosphere. Everyone was really impressed with the new menu (especially the prawn and calamari starter), all the food was delicious. A fantastic meal in an equally beautiful setting.

This was our first visit. Beautiful hotel in lovely grounds. The public rooms and indeed our bedroom exuded quality and class. All personnel were pleasant and helpful. The food was delicious at dinner and breakfast. Great value for money too. A memorable experience. We will be back.

On our visit we had my brother who has special needs. From the moment we walked in the door and throughout our meal staff were alerted and went out of their way to give us a quiet table and cope extremely well. The soup and bruschetta was well received. The steaks were very good but we were disappointed with the standard of the fries. We felt the meal was very overpriced and our ratings reflect that.

Despite my four year old having a meltdown because it was the wrong type of chips (?!?), the staff were fantastic, dealing with a spilled drink, a tantrum and a need for a clean spoon without hesitation. Thanks for the meal, it was great.
