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.

This is borderline because the estate and location are so stunning and superb that they make it very hard for anyone to rate this place average. However, a little more complacency about the rooms and we will find soon some people here who will destroy the immaculate 4/5 star rating. The house is very well maintained and its Georgian character passionately preserved. For people who like historic features it is a fantastic place to be. The lounge and the unmanned bar are perfect for a nightcap and a chat. However I would have appreciated if the rooms, in particular the bathroom, had been a bit more up to date with their standard. One can combine historic character with state of the art standard, in particular in a bathroom of a £160 per night en-suite. I was also not entirely happy with the banquet-style breakfast room. As impressive as it looks but it makes the start of the day a bit awkward. It would make more sense to put a few smaller tables into that large hall instead of the one big table.

A beautiful private hotel and family home. Peaceful location. (Banchory's lodge hotel is highly recommended for evening meal. ) Very hospitable and welcoming. Slightly disappointed by our room in the attic as the photos looked like luxurious bedrooms. Truly felt like we were staying at a friends house rather than staying in an hotel as it was so relaxed.

I stayed here recently with a small group who were on a tour with me. The house is beautiful and in a spectacular setting, but I left with a very bad taste in my mouth. It is family owned and operated and we were greeted by Alex, who was warm and inviting. I met her mother Ruth and also Suzanne who were both lovely. We were all sitting around the in the large entry room where the WiFi signal was best when her father came in. He was very brusk and did not share the friendly manner of the rest of the family. And then later on when we all came back from dinner, some of the group went into the main lounge where there was a nice fire and he went in to talk with them. I was sitting out in the entry hall again as I had quite a bit of work to get through. I heard him ask them about our itinerary and someone pulled out a copy of it and he proceeded to take it apart bit by bit. He told them that if he had not been to it, it was not worth going to and then told them things that they should be seeing that were not in the itinerary. I have been putting itineraries together for over 15 years and I am very careful about seeing and doing what I think is most important or enjoyable. If he hope that I would return with other groups after this, he is sadly mistaken as I will never return! I meant to give the place a much lower rating, but Alex changed my mind as she was so wonderful!

A beautiful, large house with a welcoming and attentive host. If you're looking for a stop outside of Banchory I would definitely recommend. The owners invite you into their home and it feels like you have stepped back in time, stunning four poster beds, home cooked breakfast, open fire and relaxed friendly welcome.

Elegant, quiet, comfortable estate in beautiful setting along the Dee River, convenient to many sightseeing opportunities and the town of Banchory. Nicely prepared full Scottish breakfast. The host was particularly friendly and attentive. The room was spacious , well appointed and updated.

This family run and lived in residence is very impressive and an inviting stopover. Alex was very friendly and helpful with any issue. The house is quite large as were the rooms and the lounge room, bar area and kitchen were enormous and well decoded. There is ample room to wander around the property and enjoy the animals and beautiful stream. We would recommend anybody staying here if they are in the area.

Beautiful place and reasonably priced for the area. Agree with all the previous comments. Only stayed one night on business but as we are in the area quite regularly Im sure we will visit again. They need a sign on the main road as its easy to miss.

What a beautifully presented place, starting with the drive down a winding entrance with rolling lawns and towering trees overlooking a free flowing river.we were greeted by friendly Host Alexandra and shown around her family home. We could not have asked for a more beautiful room, with personal touches everywhere.The bed was so comfortable, our Ensuite huge.We ate Dinner in Nearby Banchory but on our return the Drawing room fire was lit and we were encouraged to enjoy the ambience of the beautiful room.Next morning, a full Scottish Breakfast was provided ,could not fault a thing! Everything including freshly baked bread.Our only regret was leaving. After staying at some very average places on our trip ,Deeside Country House stands alone in excellence and value for money.Highly recommended.

Excellent find. Stunning building, stunning public rooms and terrific furniture everywhere. This is a beautiful family home that they have turned into the family business. The rooms are very big and clean as are the bathrooms. My bed was very soft but still comfortable. The owners daughter seems to run the place herself and she was always smiling and very efficient. We had a slight problem with our booking (our fault) but she was on the ball and sorted it out easliy. Breakfast was very generous and again served with a smile. If I'm ever back in the Aberdeen/Banchory area I will definitely be back.

I was most sceptical about this hotel, but it is the nicest place ever! The hotel is located on the river, off the main road in a park like area with horses, and rabbits and dogs - out of a picture book! Wonderful for our boy. Tennis facilities behind the house. It seems to be an old private villa with big rooms, each individually and tastefully furnished. Breakfast is rich and freshly made. Bath and bed rooms are huge. The area - to dream of. Olivia welcomed us as if we were coming home. We just stayed one night, but if I really wanted to chill-out, this will be the place. Simply loved it. Note that internet is very slow, mobile phone reception is also not that good (if you want to get away, it is perfect!!) Hotel does not have an elevator, - we were on the first floor, so no problem.
