The Burnett Arms Hotel sits in the heart of Banchory. Scroll through to discover our rich history.
Built in the late 18th Century as a Coaching Inn, originally there were stables to the rear for the horses and rooms in the inn for passengers to rest.
The crest that proudly sits above the front door of the Burnett Arms Hotel commemorates the visit of Princess Adelaide to the area.
Princess Adelaide had two children who both sadly died in their infancy. If either of them had lived, then they would have been Queen instead of their cousin, Victoria.
The hotel has been owned and run by the same family since 1964, with current hosts Robert & Jacqui Melvin taking the ‘reins’ of the old coaching inn in 1992. The hotel has seen a lot of refurbishments and improvements over all those years, but the warm welcome has always remained the same.
Excellent hotel, first class modern twin room, a fantastic Scottish cooked breakfast in the morning.
Highly recommended. Parking to front and great location for discovering Banchory.
