We were enjoying a great dinner when we noticed about fifty people aged from 8 to 80 entering the hotel carrying violins . On enquiry our hostess Jacqui Melvin told us it was "fiddle practice night " and offered to serve our coffee at the back of the function room where it was being held . It was great experience with fifty fiddlers all practicing Scottish Airs together.

We first visited the Burnett hotel last November and found the hotel to not be up to the standard of the best western cliantels expectations. We have stayed in best western hotels all over europe and this was 3rd rate to what we have come accustomed to from best western on our return we complained and recieved an apologey and a free weekend for the Burnett hotel to make it up to us. On our return our room was not even clean we ended up helping for the first 3/4 hour of our stay to clean the room we were not even told to go and have a cup of tea whilst the room was cleaned . We must say the food ended up being to a high standard and the staff were friendley and polite but Robert the manager was very unproffesional and did not care if we had an enjoyable time or not he was only interested in makeing money at the unofficial night club they hold in the bar area of the hotel. I would not recomend this hotel to anybody who is looking for a peacefull or romantic time do not use this hotel this is a local pub I would recomend the Banchory lodge hotel.

Room Tip: Do not stay here

I can't fault the cleanliness of this hotel.. it really was spotless. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The hotel is in the centre of Banchory so very handy for shops, pubs and exploring BUT the decor and furniture are a bit tired and there was a musty smell in the corridors and stairwells. The windows in the room were a problem because they were old and not double-glazed so the room was really cold and we could hear everyone leaving the pubs at closing time (every arguement, every joke, every drunken heart-to-heart at 1am). They had given us a couple of electric heaters so the room warmed up quickly but I think that was a temporary solution when the whole place needs a re-vamp. To end on a positive, the breakfast menu was varied and the breakast room was bright and pleasant.
