We stayed here while attending a family wedding close by. On arrival the staff were very friendly however the accommodation is a disaster we unfortunately had to endure no heating or hot water for 2 days/nights and on check-out were offered no discount for the experience. The rooms are dated the beds uncomfortable, ill-fitting bed linen and the towels damp....

I visit the Douglas every couple of years. My last visit I thought I had walked into the wrong building. It has been totally transformed from the former reasonably old style hotel / bar to what I can only describe as town centre trendy bar / dinner. It looks fantastic. It is light, airy, user friendly and just fab !...

My husband and I have eaten here twice during our stay in Banchory. On both occasions we found the staff to be friendly and attentive and the food to be well cooked and imaginatively served. The chicken breasts stuffed with haggis and served with a whiskey and watercress sauce is particularly good. The servings have been very generous-unfortunately can't manage...

We stopped off here for dinner on a trip to Aberdeen, and both had a burger. It was tasty and seemed to be good quality. However, the staff were rather brusque and dithered a lot. Service took a while, despite the restaurant being quiet. All in all, it was ok, but if I'm eating in Banchory again, will probably try...

We haven't stayed here but eat quite regularly in the bar/bar lounge area. Service is always excellent, food great and the early bird specials, 2 courses for £9.99 and 3 courses for £11.99 are unbeatable value around Banchory. Definitely worth a visit.

Liked the look of Banchry so decided to stop on way home to Aberdeen. Only hotel with rooms available, check-in staff very helpful. Once we saw the room it went downhill, mattress looked like a futon on and bed appeared to be uncomfortable. We did try to change rooms but only a twin available and didn't want that. But wow...
