The property was amazing. The location was beautiful. Dinner and breakfast were very good and the staff was very helpful. We wished we had more time to spend here.

Located in Aboyne, The Lodge on the Loch of Aboyne is near the airport and on a lake. The area's natural beauty can be seen at Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve and Falls of Feugh, while The Butterworth Gallery and Grampian Transport Museum are cultural highlights.
Our room was spacious, clean, tidy, and had a really nice view. The location of our room, however, was absurd. It's hard to fathom paying what we did for a night's hotel stay when your room is attached to the main lobby. We can only be thankful we were there just one night. Starting bright and early, families came in, ate breakfast (we could clearly hear silverware scraping plates), told stories, checked out... we heard a whole lot of it -- especially the couple with a baby that sat at the table that was situated less than 10ft from our door. We had paid the extra money to book a "nicer" room and ensure we got a good night sleep... we unfortunately encountered the opposite. Again, the room itself was very good, and the staff was very nice and let us stay until 11am (which helped a lot following our poor night's sleep). Overall, the place simply had great potential and was strong in all areas, except our room was so uncomfortably close to the lobby/bar. And definitely not a romantic stay with your wife when you're just one wall away from the busiest part of the hotel. We wish we had paid less money to stay in a normal room. I'll bet the views were still good, even most of the standard rooms!
