This Georgian mansion house has been sympathetically renovated and upgraded over the years. The present owner, Margaret Jaffray with her late husband Dugald, bought the hotel in 1966. They have improved and enlarged the original home into a comfortable country house.

Spanning two centuries of family ownership, Banchory Lodge has retained every ounce of it’s individuality, character and identity and is justifiably proud to share with you one of the few remaining Scottish country house hotels of its kind. The hotel is moments away from anywhere, yet by its very setting, allows you to feel you have found your own special place away from it all.

All of the 22 bedrooms, 4 of which have four poster beds, have ensuite facilities, linens, towels and bathrobes.

History to the present day

There is a history and near fascinating romance that steeps the Georgian Banchory Lodge Hotel; making it one of the most unique historic sites of its kind.

The site where the Hotel stands has an ancient history. Around 1400 years ago St Teman, one of the earliest recorded Pilgrims of the Christian faith in Scotland, established his monastery very close to the site of the hotel. The early Celtic Church was famous for the emphasis which it laid on hospitality - a tradition that continues today at the Hotel.
