My husband, mum-in-law and I stayed here overnight to attend a family part in Banchory. The ground level areas were in the midst of refurbishment and decorating, so it was a little bit hectic for both guests and staff. However, the staff were great, really friendly and welcoming. I had read reviews prior to going, that décor in the hotel...

I have also eaten from the menu in the past...

We found the staff very friendly, but the standard of our food was poor. A steak which was so tough it could probably have survived a nuclear attack, and a pheasant which was even tougher. In fairness, the waitress had told us the hotel was soon to close for refurbishment, so perhaps the kitchen was not as well stocked as...

My husband and I stayed here for four nights with our two dogs. Where do I start?! The location of the hotel is perfect. Within a stones throw of all amenities, the beautiful river Dee and on the doorstep of the simply stunning Cairngorms National Park. Every member of the team there from reception to the kitchen, to the restaurant...

Had a beautiful carvery lunch here last Sunday. The food was really delicious, love the roast beef. The staff were excellent and one of the girls even sat with our dog and she got a bonio while we got our food, lovely touch. Highly recommended and will definitely go again. Thank you.

We were here at lunchtime on Christmas Eve to celebrate our daughter's birthday. The menu choice was exceptional. The quality of the food was very good and the service was attentive, friendly and polite. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will certainly be back on future visits to Banchory.

We spent two night at the Burnett Arms on a trip to visit relatives. We were delighted with it - very friendly staff, good and quiet room. There was a large and very friendly bar and the food in the evening was good and all at a good price. It was ideal for our needs. There is only one criticism,...

The Burnett Arms is situated in the centre of a small town called Banchory in Scotland. I have stayed here quite often in the last 20 years and recently many of the rooms have been renovated to a very high standard. The staff are really friendly and the hotel has quite a nice homely feel. Although I stay on business...
