This was our first experience of eating in the Bothy at Tor Na Coille, although I have been to the hotel many times. It was fantastic to have our own space. Ellie looked after us really well and everything was perfect. All the staff were very obliging, both before and after the evening - I would thoroughly recommend it for a small function.

I really enjoyed dinner at the hotel but the service and stay was not as anticipated. Curt staff and unprofessional service, made this a very average experience. I would not recommend to friends.

We had my husband’s 70th Birthday - dinner, Bed & breakfast celebration 1st June, for 10 adults and 6 children. The dinner was excellent as was the service. We had the function room set out beautifully for the dinner. My daughters were able to decorate the room which personalised the occasion. The accommodation was also excellent especially the family rooms. Thank you Tor Na Coille for making my husband’s 70th such an enjoyable and memorable occasionX

Our Rotary Club held an annual dinner at the Tor-Na-Coille Hotel and we found the entire experience ‘first class’. The Management were extremely supportive throughout the preparation and on the evening of the event. The catering was excellent and the service likewise. No negative observations were received from attendees. We shall certainly consider using the Tor-Na-Coille facilities in the future.

We were a party of ten and spent a wonderful evening in the Gin Bothy in the garden. A fantastic private venue with excellent service and outstanding food. Would highly recommend.

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.

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.
