Reviewed 18 May 2014

Banchory is an ideal location to visit Royal Deeside. Tor-na-Coille has a pleasant situation with good gardens. A typical Scottish Victorian baronial mansion, it has excellent and spacious public rooms, recently refurbished. Our bedroom was immaculate - also refurbished and excellent - we were upgraded to a Master bedroom. Dinner and breakfast were both excellent. Service was willing and courteous but slapdash and amateur - our pre-dinner drinks took an age to come; the table d'hote menu advertised in the bedroom had been removed; the brown toast requested appeared as white. But overall a very good place to stay.

Room Tip: The second floor bedrooms are not the usual maids' rooms, but spacious bedrooms with ante rooms...

My husband and I have just enjoyed an overnight stay at the Torna-coille hotel with dinner, bed and breakfast. We were made so welcome by all the staff we met, our room was an upgrade so comfortable clean and quiet. The dinner and breakfast were excellent. We will return even though we are not far from home. Thank you all.

Quite an imposing and older style hotel. We dropped in on spec as we were touring the area. The price was fair and almost cheap compared to Aberdeen's mid-week prices. We received an upgrade to a suite which had a large bedroom room and smaller lounge.

The bed was possibly the most comfortable I have ever slept in, even compared to my own at home !

Continental and Full Breakfast was included in the price. Only negative was the tables being dressed for lunch/dinner while we ate breakfast.

We would certainly stay again

Stayed recently for DBB. The room was spacious with comfortable bed and seating area, but with the smallest tv on the wall that wasn't fitting with the room size. Tea and coffee making facilities but cheap sachets. Bathroom lovely and clean and massive but they could make more of the space with a roll top bath or similar. The biggest let down was no hot water the following morning so couldn't shower. Did mention to staff but it was brushed off, saying there was a problem with a boiler, so this was a massive let down and it could have been compensated. On the plus side the food is delicious and the staff polite and friendly. Could be excellent but a few small things let it down.

My partner booked this as a little overnight stay away and I have to say we had a really pleasant experience. The staff were friendly, could have been a little more attentive in the restaurant however that is nit-picking. We decided in the evening to go for the set menu in the dining room which I have to say is worth every penny and was extremely tasty..the haddock and leek tart was delicious that I had to start followed by the fillet of steak, the dessert was to die for and if I could have fitted in another couple I would of! yum - we were very happy.
The bedroom was comfortable and the bed itself comfy, the only thing and again this is an area for improvement would be the en-suites which could do with a little refurbishment and modernizing. Overall great stay and great food!

Stayed for 3 nights over Christmas. Got a gorgeous room with a wee sitting room. So clean and beautifully decorated. We had 2 evening meals which were lovely and the breakfasts were great. Every member of staff was friendly without being over bearing. A credit to the lovely north east.
