’Step into our distinguished Victorian country house hotel and award winning restaurant on Royal Deeside, where peace and good taste reign supreme.
With its elevated position, Tor Na Coille’s aristocratic, traditional granite façade has watched over the Aberdeenshire town of Banchory since 1873. Originally designed to entice the royal couple Victoria and Albert to stop en route via horse and carriage to Balmoral Castle.
Tor Na Coille played host to the family of Russian Tsar Nicholas II in the Edwardian era and the hotel was the scene for cinematic sleepovers in the 1960s when Charlie Chaplin and his family were frequent visitors.
Today, the Tor Na Coille tempts travellers from near and far with its elegant interiors .Our twenty five uniquely individual bedrooms, many of which are of Victorian proportions with dual or triple aspect windows, have refined Scottish overtones – a contemporary palette with Caledonian flashes. The Telegraph described it as ‘understated tartanry’ – and we like that.
Period furniture mixed with chic textures, material and tones give a comfortably grand feel and stylish chic en-suites make for an indulgently relaxing stay. High ceilings and large windows are a striking feature of many of our rooms, giving views over the glorious woodland setting.
A well-deserved reputation for “relaxed fine dining” has made the Tor Na Coille THE place to unwind … deliciously. Any restaurant worth its salt will have the odd award or two – but step into ‘’The Greedy Goose’’ restaurant to be surrounded by award winning food and chefs. When your meal is prepared by the North East’ Scotland’s Chef of the Year Colin Lyall , you know it’s going to be a gastronomic delight.
From refined afternoon tea in the lounge, drams in the bar, celebrations in the Scolty room, coffee in summer on the lawn or fishing breaks on the world-famous River Dee, Tor Na Coille is a tastefully tranquil retreat on the Royal Route’’
