                          We came to Banff Springs after a night spent in 4* hotel elsewhere. This one was by far more comfortable and clean, and the staff much more friendly, very helpful and professional. Food simple but very tasty. Overall very pleasant experience.

                        • Family with children
                          8.2

                          Friendliness of Staff from check - in to check - out. Very approachable people. Nothing seemed too much bother to them.

                          The views.!!!! The hotel is currently being upgraded and cosequently the rooms allocated to Booked.net customers are of a lower standard. The new room tarriff @ over £100.00 is over the top! Food and drink are somewat expensive for the area and they are obviously taking advantage of the business traveller. I was quoted three different prices for my two rooms, had my booking cancelled blaming Booked.net for the error and the later,after 6pm on the evening before,had the booking re- instated,only to find on arrival that my colleague had bee allocated a room in the annaex looking onto the back yard and not the views I had raved about to him!!!

                          8.8

                          The welcome always makes one feel at home. Kenny, the bar-man is excellent as are those who wait at table.

                          In a twin room one of the beds needs replacing as the mattress has no spring left in it. There was a very noisy pipe running hot when the radiator was supposed to be off and when mentioned to a member of desk staff on leaving they didn't seem to care or apologise.

                          6.2

                          the poor info from the hotel staff, map over the town would have been nice

                        • Older travelers
                          8.2

                          Friendly reception. Room good size with good view.

                          No plug by tea & coffee tray. Had to move whole tray to dressing table. Also rattley flap in bathroom ceiling which we could not reach to close. Very windy so woke is both up.

                        • Group of friends
                          9.2

                          The view of the sea and beach was lovely, and just a stones throw from the hotel, so it was nice to just pop across the road for a walk. The meal we had in the restaurant was very good and well presented.

                          I have a gluten intolerance and appreciate it if the gf marker is used on the menu, I would also have appreciated there being a gluten free selection at breakfast eg gf bread. As I'm a vegetarian, the breakfast choice I had was fruit. I don't like having to constanly ask if food is gf; so would, like many others appreciate it if a gf loaf was in the freezer! I did mention on arrival that I needed gf and was told this would not be a problem.

                          Friendly staff, good food, excellent room with a view.

                          Ended up with a kingside bed instead of twin! Fortunately there was a great gulf between us.

                        • Older travelers

                          The hotel is in the process of refurbishing but there was no disruption while we were there. Ate in the restaurant our 1st night then in the bar the second night, both times the food was excellent. Good choice of food for breakfast too. The staff are all very friendly & cheery.

                        • Couple
                          9.2

                          Brilliant stay at hotel for a wedding. Room had an amazing view of the bay. Couldn't of asked for better.

                          The only thing wrong with the entire stay was the shower.

                        • Single
                          9.6

                          Welcoming staff, good location for access to the coast, large comfortable beds.

                          Only niggle was the serving of breakfast. Hotel was full and only two staff serving in the breakfast room were not able to keep up with replenishing the buffet, taking orders and clearing the tables, resulting in a long wait for the cooked breakfast. Otherwise a good overall experience.

                        • Older travelers
                          8.8

                          Hotel was very comfortable - room had good view over the front of the hotel. Bar - good food and reasonably priced. Reception - efficient both at check in and on leaving.

                          Bar staff were rude although under pressure. I was repeatadly ignored when trying to buy drinks - a simple acknowledgement would have been nice. In his defense, the barman was serving drinks to tables in the restauarant, but at least he could have looked in the direction of someone standing at the bar for over 15 minutes waiting to be served. Similarly when trying to tell someone we were in the bar for a table we had already booked, staff just walked away from the desk - one was on her 'phone and made no attempt to acknowledge my presence. Very embarassing as we were entertaining guests. In the morning, the breakfast staff were equally busy but efficient and courteous which made all the difference.

                        • Family with children
                          5.8

                          Nice location

                          First of all my confirmation said i had booked a single instead of a double so when i asked them to change they charged an extra £20 which was more than Booked.net had been advertising. Then i wasnt told time of breakfast so i thought it would be closing at 10am but when i went down at 09:40 they told me it was too late. What annoyed me was that i wasnt even offered anything to even take away with me and also when i first went down the receptionist was on the phone to someone appoligising for a mistake and offering a refund but i was offered nothing ( probably as i was just a normal working guy and not someone with a suit and tie)

                          Its location in Banff is brilliant especially if you have a 'sea view'. The staff are also very helpful and especially the 'breakfast ladies'. Thank you

                          We didn't like to be 'locked out' at 2315hrs! especially after notifying reception staff that we would be visiting friends and would be 'late' back! By chance and after a lot of knocking doors the night porter appeared from somewhere! The young man waiter in the Bar Meals restaurant I think also needs some further customer case training! he couldn't wait to get away from the table!! and totally different from the female waitress on the preivious evening. Only small points but never the less not a standard I'd expect from the Banff Springs.

                          Views from public rooms were excellent. Meals were very good and service was very pleasantly carried out.
