    Whilst staying in Aboyne The Boat Inn came highly recommended so we decided to call in, the food was incredible! A good varied menu with delicious traditional Scottish choices, the pheasant is a must!

    Lovely gastro type (but not too 'fancy') pub, good menu, bustling with diners even on a Thurs night. Love the sign outside: "Children, Dogs and Muddy Boots welcome". Friendly staff, good food. We were served by a young man who was on his first night...More

    We stayed for three nights and overall the experience was very good. The room we had was very large modern,clean and well equipped (14 sockets) though we felt that the dark décor was a bit overpowering and would have preferred a bit more storage space....More

    Everything first class. Bed extremely comfortable, a top sheet provided on request; window opened. Dinner excellent as was breakfast. Personal, friendly service from every member of staff. The location is quiet, just away from town centre. It seems popular with locals.
