Range of food was quite good although a couple of items didn't go well with everything else. Presentation was disappointing but service was excellent. Decor could do with improvement. The wallpaper was splattered with marks. Outlook onto River Dee was beautiful and the hotel enjoys a marvellous setting.

We had a wonderful time at the lodge. The breakfast here was incredible and the dinner was wonderful. Staff couldn’t be more helpful. We look forward to visiting sometime in the future.

Beautiful hotel, our room No.5 was superb with a wonderful river view. The service throughout the hotel was super and the quality of the food in the restaurant both on the evening and for breakfast was second to none. We had a fantastic stay and although we where only passing on business we would actually go out of our way to return and spend a little longer next time.

Disappointed that despite a full breakfast being on your online menu it was not on your menu on the day. Asked if I could get a full breakfast but no - despite both bacon and eggs being on the minute Conclusion - very limited Brunch Menu

We had lunch on a Saturday. I had the scallops and black pudding starter which was quite simply the most delicious thing I have eaten this year. My mouth is still watering thinking about it. The venison main was very tasty too. Service very good and I would love to return (we don't live locally) Highly recommended

Had a fabulous meal on Friday night - the food was delicious . We had friends up from London and they were very impressed. The atmosphere was relaxing with a little buzz and the attentive service from Davut and the team was excellent.

The food was lovely - good sized portions and well received all by guests. The service was questionable as each aspect of our meal was dealt with by a different member of staff (from being shown to our table, food order, drinks order, serving of meals and clearing of meals). There appeared to be no or very little communication between staff as none of the staff members seemed sure of what we had already been asked or ordered by previous staff members. We got our food order taken but no one offered to take our drinks order. It was only because my brother asked a waiter if he could take our drink orders. None of the staff asked us if we enjoyed our meal or if we would like anything else - we had to ask for sauces, dessert menus etc. My only gripe about the drinks were the coke/Diet Cokes that were ordered were very small for the price. A lovely setting, lovely food but let down majorly by the service.

Lovely venue, we really enjoyed our lunch. The lady who served us was very nice and welcoming. The food was excellent and the table setting at the window looking out at the river was perfect.

Lovely staff and beautiful food. There was obviously an event going on the same evening that we had our reservation, but the service level was still great.

No alternative to strawberry jam was disappointing for a hotel. More regular check backs or visible staff would have been good. (Top up of water /drinks)

We were a party of 4. Fast service and the food was very tasty. The one criticism would be that the special dish of sea bass was quite a small portion
