We found the Burnett Arms Hotel to be a very friendly and welcoming establishment. We visited most of the eating/drinking places and found this hotel to have the best atmosphere. The bar was busy which is always good with a whole range of ages. It was just a really lovely atmosphere. We will definitely be returning...... and the cocktails are...

Staff very friendly and helpful, rooms basic but adequate with bath, shower etc en suite. Bar usually busy and loud but service ok. Breakfast esp. cooked Scottish the worst ever experienced in my life anywhere - 1st day very poor - everything looked as thought it had been pre-cooked the evening before and just heated up - 'soft' poached eggs...

The hotel has recently had a beautiful and very thoughtful re-vamp. And it truly does it justice. What was once a quite dark and tired hotel has been brought back to life and very thoughtfully decorated to a very high standard with lots of natural light coming in. The cocktail bar looks amazing and I can't wait to return to...

We were given a very fine and large room. When we returned to go to bed we noticed that the bar was very full, and we did fear that this would mean plenty of noise in the night. But we heard nothing. The service was surprisingly slow - both at check-in and at check-out. But we understood that the hotel...

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...

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...
