To really give ourselves a special treat we book into this establishment knowing that we will enjoy a luxuriously comfortable stay. The rooms are always warm and welcoming and the attention to detail is excellent. On our latest stay for my wife's birthday we also took my two sisters and enjoyed a really great weekend. Highly recommended

We booked a table at the County for supper on 13th Feb 2017. On arrival we were met by a waiter who I can only describe as "surly". He stood at the door of the (empty) dining room, pointed, and said we could sit anywhere. The room was absolutely freezing. There was a fire but it was unlit. We sat...

Been 10 years between our visits and our only regret is not returning sooner! Classic food cooked very well and served in lovely surroundings. Service, ambiance and food all first class. Fantastic dining experience.

We've been hiking inn to inn, and this is our last stop. And I am so happy! This inn is owned by a Frenchman, and the rooms are outfitted with furnishings from his grandparents' home in France. Ooh La La! Our room, Thistle, is a little small, but very nice and with a an ensuite with a super shower. But...

I chose the 3 course bistro menu (£15) and could only manage 2 courses. The Cullen skink was fantastic. The steak pie excellent also. portion are very generous and I probably should not have...

The food here is superb. The boards outside are a bit baffling - they give no idea of what to expect but once inside the atmosphere is pleasant in a lovely old building. The chef is the owner. He came to talk to us as were unsure about the difference between the bistro and the restaurant and he was very...

Hidden away in Banff is this surprising hotel. Small, and a period piece. Run by Eric, who is a Frenchman from Montpellier and his wife Vida (an airlines stewardess), it's friendly, comfortable and has some seriously good cooking. Eric loves to talk about food, and if you stay for more than a day, he will discuss options on his menu....

I stayed here with family whilst visiting family that live in Banff and Macduff. The hotel was very clean and quiet which is just how I like it. The room I stayed in was the Salmon room which has beautiful views of the bay. We had a meal at the evening which was very nice as was the breakfast the...

I stayed here for one night and was very impressed. The host (Eric) was very friendly and a very personable character and the hotel was very interesting. It had bags of character and the food was excellent as well. After a long road trip, the Cullen Skink soup made by Eric was the best I've had in ages.
