Wanted to stay somewhere in the Scottish countryside when visiting Aberdeen for a weekend trip. Banchory was an easy drive away so thought we could get some quiet R&R there. Unfortunately Banchory is nothing to write home about and the hotel was in a more "urban" environment that we would have hoped. There are hundreds of better rural locations in...

It was difficult to decide what to have as everything sounded lovely! The food was excellent and very attentive service! I particularly enjoyed that we could relax and have drinks in the lounge with appertifs and order our...

I recently stayed at this wonderful establishment on Valentine's night & purchased the Dinner, Bed & Breakfast Option in the Junior suite. First of all the hotel sits on a slight hill & is spectacular to drive up to! The staff are all polite, professional & will really do anything to make your stay that "wee" bit better. The staff...

We decided to revisit this hotel for lunch as we had eaten there on a number of occasions in the past. We found that the selection of lunchtime dishes was wide enough to cater for most tastes. The food was well cooked and nicely presented. The service was good Andy staff helpful. It is generally better to reserve your table...

I attended a college reunion (25 years) at Tor-na-Coille in November 2014. I can honestly say that the venue was superb. A lovely, small hotel where the staff and management went to great lengths to ensure that we had everything we needed. The rooms were comfortable, warm and quiet. Id recommend this hotel for a weekend break or a get...

I booked this hotel for my boyfriend and I, one weekend in July. I found a very good deal online for a deluxe double room and we were completely blown away with the room we received. The room itself was very well presented and extremely spacious, the bed was huge and very comfy. All appliances were working and on good...

We booked here at the last minute when bad weather caused us to change route. Imagine our delight when we pulled up to Tor-Na-Coille. The property is stunning, the staff exceptional, and the rooms remarkable. The breakfasts were excellent. This was a delightful place to enjoy holiday cheer while the 2014 Weather Bomb raged. We would love to come back...

The kind of place that made working away from home worthwhile. Delicious food and pleasant, helpful staff. The cheerful lady serving breakfast did help by starting the day with a smile. Bedroom and bathroom were spacious, warm and well decorated. Impressive trees framed the view even on grey days. Nice walks within a few minutes of the hotel if you...
