Tor-Na-Coille Hotel

150 Years old

This year we celebrate 150 years since Mr George Thomson built this beautiful family home.  The hotel has 25 bedrooms, each with unique characteristics from the Victorian Era.  The Tor Na Coille is now under new management, following a major refurbishment the hotel houses a hidden gem, The Greedy Goose Restaurant & Cocktail Bar.  The restaurant serves delicious traditional food with a modern twist with an extensive menu to suit all palettes.  Bar 1873 has also been refurbished for a more informal setting serving food and a selection of whiskeys, beers and other beverages.

Come along to the new Tor Na Coille Hotel and try for yourself.


Step into our distinguished Victorian country house hotel and on Royal Deeside.

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.  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 accommodates tourists and visitors from near and far with its elegant interiors and 25 luxury bedrooms.

The Tor-Na-Coille sits in six acres of protected Woodland and is a ten minute stroll from the centre of Banchory. 

Residents are welcome to use the exceptional fitness facilities at our sister company,  The Unit Gym & Fitness which sits in the grounds of the hotel.
