I live in Brighton but spent many years in Aberdeen and am back for a week's holiday and was so looking forward to having lunch at Tor-na-Coille.

If you are booking a room with 'garden view' be aware that the hotel grounds are fairly limited in size and views are not really scenic as this hotel is located within Banchory rather than out on its own ....

We needed a room in Banchory to let us attend a family party so booked here on line hoping for a good nights sleep. It's so much better than the price reflects. Friendly & helpful service at every point. Will return as soon as we can.

Stayed two nights which included a function for 44 people on the second night. Everything was handled superbly by Philip, the hotel Manager and his friendly staff, who made sure the weekend ran smoothly. The rooms were lovely, well appointed and clean. The breakfasts offered a vast choice and the function dinner was excellent. Philip went out of his way...
