Hotel is in a great location by the river, a short way along a gravel driveway, from the main drag. Room was clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The hotel is decorated beautifully and looked grand lit up at night in the ice and snow.

We only travelled 5 miles to Banchory Lodge but it made a great birthday night way Arrived on a wintery afternoon to a room in Cobblesheugh. It was, as requested, river views and a bath; I would have looked forward to a confirmation email, letting us know that we were not in the main building. Thankfully we loved our room,...

I stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of the month. The hotel is a little very building on the banks of s river surrounded by trees and sweeping lawns. The public areas are well kept and in a chic relaxed country inn style. Our Room overlooked the river so was superb from that perspective. Otherwise it was very...

My daughter who lives in Aberdeen picked this hotel for afternoon coffee and scones. We arrived and met friends there and we enjoyed it so much we must have sat for a couple of hours. We ate in the bar area. The menu for the bar is small and ideal for an afternoon coffee. My plan was to have a...

A friend and I wanted to go somewhere nice for some food and wine..... we were not disappointed! The food was amazing and the service top notch! Especially the attentive Davud. You could see how much he cared for his customers and was genuinely interested in conversation. We will definitely return, with friends!

Went here about 2 years ago and really enjoyed the whole experience, however this time the food was poor, overpriced, unpleasant music playing, cold and a bit messy. Such a pity given the wonderful settings.
