Just back from a lovely lunch here. Location, decor, staff and food faultless. Nice choice on the menu. And amazing sea views. Will return again soon. Did book a table and was really busy so just as well. Lovely homemade chips too. Keep up the good work.

A really good hotel, made just that bit better by excellent staff, whether on reception or in the restaurant. The rooms are good, modern, perhaps a little sparse, but in the modern style. The food is the restaurant is excellent, good choice, well prepared and presented, and the staff are great.

Having previous visited for family meals we were very disappoint this weekend , after being shown our table we had to wait 30 mins before our order was taken, and then told one starter would take 20 mins to cook, in a manner that made us feel that it was to much trouble to have, we then had to wait another 30 mins for staters to be served, therefore our guest could have had first choice of starter. When main meal was served my meal was served without salad that was order ed and my husbands meal sea food platter was served without langoustines , when we contacted the waiter he seemed uninterested but came back with salad and 4 small prawns not langoustines. Quality of food was good but unfortunately the table service was terrible, previous good reviews seems to be from residents perhaps non residents don't receive the same service.

The view from this hotel is absolutely breath taking. Although I stayed just the one night, it was not difficult to see why the hotel was sited where it was.
The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Unfortunately, there was a wedding on which continue onto the following morning. The room walls could not prevent the noise from the adjoining wedding guest's ongoing party. So an unfortunate disturbed sleep that I couldn't help thinking that if this hotel had "Premier Inn" room silence it would have been perfect.
Having said that, i would stay here again. The staff were welcoming and helpful and it wasn't difficult to understand why it was such a good wedding location.

The Banff Springs hotel is situated on the outskirts of Banff on the road to Portsoy. We have just spent two nights there whilst playing golf at Duff House Royal. The hotel has been refurbished in the last 4 years or so and is very nicely decorated and laid out. The rooms are maybe a tad on the small side (only slight criticism) but they are very nicely decorated and are clean and well kept. The rest of the hotel is too a very high standard as well. The food in the restaurant is very, very good. Dinner, two nights running, even with a wedding the same day was as close to perfection as you could get. Venison, beef olives, duck, carbonara, sticky toffee pudding, - everything was 10/10. Breakfast was also very good, freshly cooked, plenty of selection and always hot. The extra rating to 5 stars are the staff - I have stayed in hotels throughout the world and would put the staff at the Banff Springs on a par with Gleneagles, Ritz etc. They were extremely courteous, helpful, attentqative and nothing was too much trouble. For the price this is in my top three hotel experiences out of roughly 125 different hotels I have stayed in. I do not know who the owner and/or the chef is but they are to be commended for making the Banff Springs hotel what it is.

The Royal Duff house golf course was also a delight. Excellent course in very good condition and a test for any golfer.

Room Tip: A seaview room is nice and the suites looked good as well.

We had a family get together here today and booked a table in the carvery which turned out to be a brilliant decision as we were served first!

The food was first class - the roast beef was so tasty, e,very thing was tasty and the quality ran through all the food, including the spectacular cheesecake dessert.

The staff were all so courteous and friendly - made us fepel really welcome.

All in all - a fantastic experience.
