Sensational food! Will definitely return! Superb flavours and presentation. Lemon posset was amazing. Staff extremely helpful and friendly and made us feel most welcome. They even piped a Happy Anniversary message on our plate of petit fours with our coffee which was a delightful and thoughtful touch!

Bar menu steak was acceptable but have tasted a lot better considering the price charged. Pepper was not as peppery as we like.

We had a brilliant night in The Bothy. Food was superb as was service and the facilities in this private dining facility. The fire, candles, access to music system etc all made for a very enjoyable night to celebrate some family milestones. Would recommend to anyone.We will be back!

We were a group of 14 on a busy night at Tornacoille. We were very happy with the overall experience. The food was excellent as was the wine and atmosphere and given the business of the hotel the staff tried very hard to provide good service but sometimes were not as attentive as they might have been. It wasn’t a major issue for us and was not the fault of the staff who were trying their best and always responded when asked but perhaps the hotel was oversubscribed fore the staffing numbers. We did however still have an excellent experience! 😀

The scones were a disappointment, rather too dry and also oddly crisp on the outside. However, the service was very good, we were well looked after.

A most excellent dining experience in The Bothy for my father’s 89th birthday. The venue was outstanding and the food top class. . A big thank you to Barry and Ellie in front of house for their attentiveness. They made our evening so special. And Colin and Aaron, the chefs, who produced the most amazing and delicious food. Roll on our next visit!!

Although the food, service and friendliness of the staff was first class the atmosphere in the dining room was lacking as there were only three other couples there. The hotel’s performance for Sunday lunch deserves better. And sitting in front of the lof fire afterwards on a dull, cold day was wonderful.We will certainly be back.

My family and I have frequented the hotel for the past 18 months. All of our visits have been extremely positive. The staff are welcoming and make the experience so enjoyable. The standard of the food is impressive. We will continue to visit on a regular basis.

It's the 3rd time I've stayed here in the last 12months, each visit was as good if notbetter than the last. Each time I've brought family and friends, all have loved it. Beautiful place/surroundings, lovely attentive staff (all a credit to the hotel). The food is absolutely fantastic, the rooms are nicely decorated, homely and comfortable. Hopefully I'll be back again soon. Ollie.

It was a wonderful evening... beginning to end (3 hours later!) I can't imagine how we could have chosen a more special venue to dine with friends in Banchory. Truly wonderful food, service and ambience.

We recently celebrated our Golden Wedding with a lunch with family and friends at the Tor na Coille, and it was excellent in every respect - delicious food, friendly and efficient service, and a wonderful ambience. The hotel and staff really made our special occasion extra-special.

We were in the function room for a baby shower afternoon tea. Absolutely lovely, could not fault the service at all. Lovely function room! A special thanks to David the chef who saved the day as the baby shower cake had a disaster due to the heat. He re-made the cake the day before. Absolutely beautiful job he made of it. Couldn't ask for anything more. Would definately recommend.

I heard no adverse comments from any of the party of 12. My portion of Roast beef was beset with sinnew/gristle and therefore one of the slices was Poor. I siuspect that was my bad luck. I believe our party enjoyed their visit on the whole. Thanks.

Our whole group thoroughly enjoyed our evening last night. The food was first class. A couple of people were Vegan and Gluten Free and that was catered for without issue. One of the previous restaurants we went to, this was a bit of an issue so I didn't know what to expect...but the staff were very accommodating and I'm told the Vegan choice was delicious. Good beers (so I am told) and lush gin which I can vouch for. The service was outstanding. All the waiting staff were lovely. So friendly and you really were made to feel like we had "an experience" as one gentlemen said to my friend. We all had a great time and we look forward to coming back for our next night out.

We love the food and service.The food is beautiful quality and is far superior than anywhere else in the area.It is excellent value for money.Its even better value for a tea and scone than local coffee shops.The service is polite and genuinely sincere to provide care to customers. I recently purchased a voucher as a gift and it was well received I would certainly give a gift voucher again
