“Nice hotel in lovely location”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

We had a family dinner and booked three of the rooms. The small dining room was perfect for our needs and the menu provided a variety of Scottish fare, reasonably priced and served with a smile from the attentive waiting staff. The Balvenie bar provided a great after-dinner relaxation and the breakfast next morning was excellent. Our room was spacious with a comfy bed and huge ensuite bathroom, leaving us with a happy memory of our stay and a hotel I would recommend and definitely stay at again. Thanks to all the staff for their hard work and welcome.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 6, the largest in the hotel, and very large

Visited for lunch last week. We were met by a grumpy waitress who didn't even try to crack a smile for the entire time we were there. Don't let this one girl put you off staying though. The other waiter (I think his name was Joe) was very pleasant. The food was excellent, with good value for money. Our meal was served promptly and over all we had a very enjoyable lunch.

we had our wedding here in July and it was absolutely perfect, Linda and Claire were superb and so helpful from day one especially as we had previously booked with the previous owners! Nothing was a problem and they made our special day exceptional with their planning, organisation, warm welcome to our guests and the massive smiles they had on the day. We couldn't fault the meal one bit and recommend it highly. The gardens are well kept and a perfect setting for wedding photos.
Huge thank you to Linda for everything

Stayed here one night in September 2013 while exploring Aberdeenshire.

Not the most luxurious hotel in the World, but warm, comfortable and inviting. The hotel staff were exceptionally nice, food great and room okay (although didn't really 'get' the pink leather sofa in the room).

We overslept for breakfast and the staff offered us bacon sandwiches to take with up - great customer service.

Room and bathroom both spotless and a great shower!

Stayed here one night for a wedding. Staff were excellent - professional, caring and very friendly .Beautiful hotel and grounds - room was comfortable and clean. Food on the night, and following morning was very tasty - good portions also. Would have preffered to check out a little later, but breakfast was still available until quite late in the morning, which i was happy about. Overall, a very good experience.

We were an extended family of 24 - 3 x 2-year old, 6 under 10, parents and grandparents, wanting lunch after attending a funeral nearby. Called another local hotel that was highly thought of the evening before. Unable to get beyond the offer of their standard lunch menu. Called The Fife Lodge Hotel and was told no problem. Menu and price agreed and we turned up next day at 1 to our nicely prepared separate room, where everything was ready and delicious and the kids even found a box of toys. The staff were so kind and helpful. Altogether, highly recommended.

Went in for a high tea but it turns out it must be booked well in advance oh well we ordered off the evening menu the starter took. 1 hour 15mins to arrive... Then the main course took a hour .. Didn't feel the service was good at all very weak food was nice but slow to arrive don't go if your in a rush but if your after a slow meal this is the place to go and enjoy.
