Enjoyed our meal in the lounge bar. Good wholesome food, cosy setting and friendly staff. Well priced also. An older style hotel, but very well kept and managed.

My sister and l were amazed with this building.Another family dwelling from many years ago.Elegant and full of mystery.We didn't know before we booked. I guess our family history and the Earl's of Fife just drew us there. Better than l could imagine.

We ate at the Fife lodge over the weekend. The menu good and food lovely. However the service was appalling. The young girls are trying desperately to give good service but there seems to be a distinct lack of organisation and training for them. Over the course of the night the supervisor / manager was witnessed shouting at staff twice.... More

We stayed here for one night in Banff and lived it. Ample free parking, quick and friendly reception , and escorted to our room. We are the restaurant and the food/service was amazing. We definitely would stay here again.

Went here at Lunchtime. Good menu, and Stephanie who was serving us went out of her way to look after us. Our meal was delicious . I'm slightly dairy intolerant and she asked the chef for a dessert without cream. I wasn't disappointed, fabulous.
