Friendly helpful staff excellent food. Well run. Just amazing place to relax. Really enjoyed and felt very welcome! Whilst we were there they also had a comedy night which was very good. I would recommend anyone to stay at durn house, I'll also be wanting to come back.

I had high expectations of this location given the website descriptions of a luxurious, historic country house and the premium prices they charge ( even with a generous discount it was expensive.) However , experience did not meet up to expectations in many ways. The first surprise was the discovery that my credit card had been debited for the whole... More

First time atDurn House , everyone very pleasant surroundings relaxed but the time between courses was painstakingly slow. So much so that it spoiled the whole evening, over 30minuts between first and main course.

We are just back from a 2 night stay at Durn House, all I can say is wow! it's such a beautiful house in a beautiful setting. All rooms are pure luxury and you really feel it's a treat staying there. We had a sneaky look at all the rooms as the manager showed us and they are all lovely,... More

We were going to have diner out this weekend and I had been advised by my friend that Durn House was very good. When we phoned to book we were advised it was going to be a Diner and Comedy event (something different) for our area. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and shown through to a reception lounge... More

My wife and I were in the Portsoy area on business and decided to give Durns House a shot. The first thing to say is that this is a guest house and not geared for the business user - it's not trying to be, so that is fine. I noticed one review criticised the wifi connection in the bedrooms but... More

I recently had afternoon tea with my sister which was very pleasant. I am extremely fond of Durn House and it's wonderful elegance and the homely feel it has. However, there are two improvements which I think could be taken into account. The sandwiches with the afternoon tea were sparse and customers could be offered a little more. However, we... More

Attended a recent ladies day as part of a group. Staff were very welcoming and beauty treatments were lovely. Only disappointment was the afternoon tea, whilst it was beautifully served and tasty, the sandwiches were extremely dainty and it would've been nice to have been offered more.
