Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My wife and I stayed here for one night and we had a wonderful experience. It started with a very warm welcome at reception followed by the fantastic room number 6. Our dinner was superb and the service was excellent. The breakfast was really good and again great service. Every member of staff we met was very friendly and very helpful. We will most definitely return but for more than one night.

Lovely ambience and restaurant recently redecorated to high standard but food disappointing. Arancini balls underwhelming as all risotto with a tiny amount of mushroom and missing mozzarella. Turkey roll not great either, overdone topped with raw bacon. We didn’t stay for dessert!

We had a family meal tonight with 10 family members but the noise was terrible with cocktails being continuously made right next to our table so basically you couldn’t hear your self or other family members speak due to ice being rattled continuously. The roast rib was excellent but the mashed potatoe portion was very small so ended up with lots of gravy and only one vedge with which was spinach. The fish batter was horrendous on two of the meals soaked in oil and at this price point should be quality crisp beer batter. The fries were acceptable but could easily be improved. The smoked salmon starter was very good but again the portion size was not worth £10.00 with three slivers of salmon but tasted great all the same. The service was the poorest on this occasion with very little attention to our table and with high prices like this service should match but was very poor indeed. I was shocked at being offered a steak at £85.00 when my favourite hotel can do the best 12 oz sirloin for £60.00 with all the trimmings and service second to none. Lovely improvement in the new lounge but a front of house person is required in the busy weekend restaurant and some focus on portion size with some of the relatively expensive starters and the wine is overpriced at the hotel. Note I can see great potential for the Tor-na-coille hotel but there is a fine line in pricing your self away from success and good service is essential to support this. Keith knight Banchory

We stayed in the hotel on the 27th October weekend . It was the reopening night and it was wonderful. Everyone made us feel welcome and was in such high spirits. From the moment we walked into the hotel we was immediately made to feel welcome, we checked in and was shown up to our beautiful room. (Room 8) The room was huge, and the quality of the pillows and blankets/bedding made the huge bed even more inviting! If there’s one thing I like when I’m away it’s a comfy luxurious bed and this didn’t disappoint! We had bed and breakfast and the breakfast was beautiful. I’m a bit of a coffee snob and was hoping the coffee was going to be nice, ✔️ tick! Happy already as I’d got my caffeine fix it was time to eat & i’m not afraid to say that I like a good quality banger on my breakfast and again I wasn’t disappointed. The breakfast menu was impressive and the staff serving us were really attentive and on the ball. The hotel was beautiful, I never saw it before but from speaking to other people I’m told the new owners have revamped it and what they’ve done has certainly impressed! They’ve incorporated old with new and kept in keeping with the ‘oldly worldly’ feel. At night we chose to eat in the restaurant and the food was amazing! I had the beef rib and I don’t think I’ll find another restaurant that can beat that meal! The chefs deserve a mention here too because every single meal we ate we there, we were impressed with. The Sunday lunch board was to die for and cooked to perfection!! You need to try that it you stay!! We are already planning another 7 hours drive back up there! The hotel is beautiful and set in beautiful surroundings, the staff were all so inviting, the food was incredible, the alcohol kept flowing and we had the best time. We are definitely returning.

We recently dined at the newly refurbished Tor na Collie Hotel (The Greedy Goose) in Banchory to celebrate our friends birthday. We were not disappointed. Immediately we were stunned by the beautiful decor which was very stylish and welcoming. There was a great ambience and the lighting was perfect. We were shown to our table by Remi the new owner who was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and very well presented. We had a wonderful evening and will certainly return.

Every single floorboard creaks, my pet hate. Room was ok, could have been cleaner. Hotel was under renovation during my stay. Food was overpriced for what it was, staff very welcoming and friendly. Big gap under the door to the room which let in a lot of light.

Had Sunday dinner today , the very best food and service I have received for a very long time . We had the shared roast and would highly recommend but make sure you are hungry because the portions are big !! The real text was the sticky toffee pudding and once again we were not disappointed . The best meal for a long time !!
