i was appalled when my family and i came to Durn house for our evening meal. the prices for the food were extortionate and the corkage price is outrageous. we attempted to make a complaint about our time there and the man who called himself the manager was rude and obnoxious!!!! however, the service staff were magnificent and couldnt be...

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.

Room , Sutherland really nice, the photos on website didn't do it... More

My husband took me to Durn House to celebrate my 40th Birthday, we stayed in the Durn Suite and had dinner on the Saturday night, the whole experience from beginning to end was perfect, Eon the General Manager could not have been kinder, in fact all the staff were professional and polite, service was faultless. The Durn Suite is beautifully... More
