We stayed at Tor-na-Coille for two nights and we really enjoyed it! The staff are so attentive and service-minded. Our room was spacious and the bed was so comfortable. We had a three course meal one night and it was delicious! Again, the restaurant staff were great. Breakfast was also tasty. The reason they haven't achieved top marks is because:...

Thank you for your review. Glad to read that you had a lovely stay and enjoyed good food and service. Over the last month we have installed a new w-fi set-up and we did have some problems that have now been sorted out. A large old granite building like this has some difficulties adapting to modern demands, however we are...

We were booked to dine here only and on arrival we were shown into the bar. A table was set up for us but there were no table decorations - flowers or candle - and the menus were on a clip board. An hotel of this standard could have done better. The wine list was good but no house wines...

There was a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere here. The room was clean, peaceful, and well-appointed. Breakfast was delicious and enjoyable looking out the window at the beautiful greenery. Try the sticky toffee pudding at dinner. This was one of my favorite places to stay during my week long trip.

What a friendly welcome at this reasonably priced hotel. Old school style in the lovely town of Banchory. Breakfast outstanding, served by Karen (I think) Quiet and only a short walk into town. We we told dinner was something special, but will have to wait till our next stay to try that!

We got this hotel with a special rate although definitely not that greatly reduced from the normal price. However it really was not worth the money. The room was small, carpet looked like it should have been hoovered and kettle all dusty requiring washing before use. The shower lacked pressure and very poor. The bathroom lighting was also very poor...
