We attended a friend's wedding here last month. A truly breathtaking setting and a marvellous experience. Our room which was a family room, was an excellent size with all the necessary requirements. The food was excellent with plenty of traditional and local options. The service was attentive, polite and highly efficient. This was exemplified perfectly when in the small hours...

This hotel superbly located on the River Dee and is still popular with fishers. The hotel is situated at the end of a secluded drive about half a mile from the pleasant little town of Banchory. Completely free from road noise the hotel is quiet and peaceful although room 15, where we stayed is located above the bar and can...

Great place to have lunch. Lovely setting over looking over the River Dee. Great variety on the lunch menu to choose from? We ate in the very attractive bar area. The meal was beautifully presented and tasted Devine. The service was excellent with very nice waiting staff.

I have only eaten lunch here. The menu choice was varied for tastes and the food was superb, at reasonably prices. The staff were attentive but we had to wait quite a long time for the food. The view toward the river from the dining room was wonderful. The building is tastefully decorated.

I visited the restaurant whilst staying with friends who live nearby. The food was the best I had eaten in some time. The flavours were just fantastic. If you are in the area it is definitely worth a visit. The service was also faultless.

Dear pbashwell, We are disappointed to see your review on Trip Advisor, for things that were largely out with our control at the wedding. However, we would like to address your review and point out that whilst there were not enough chairs initially due to a miscommunication regarding the number of children who attended the wedding, we addressed the problem...

Attended a wedding here and stayed two nights - great staff, great location. The hotel is a good function venue - especially if the weather is fair - the location beside the River Dee is beautiful. Highly recommended.
