We stayed here a week ago at the beginning of our honeymoon in Scotland and were immediately impressed on arrival with a warm welcome by the fire with some tea and the lightest carrot cake I've ever had. We stayed in the durn suite which is a large 4 poster bedroom with an almost equally large en-suite bathroom with free... More

Had a great weekend ( again). Second time here, ambience, service,decor,are excellent. With only a handfull of rooms the mood is relaxed and friendly. Stayed with other couples for a Burns weekend hosted by Northern Oils, many thanks

Durn House is an amazing place to stay, an old Georgian house with loads of atmosphere. The manager and staff cannot be faulted for their attention they give to the guests. The rooms are beautiful, the beds are really comfortable. The food is out of this world. If you're coming to Portsoy this would be the ideao place to stay.

An absolutely fabulous place. Went there for a meal at the weekend and the food was fantastic. I could not fault this at all. All the staff were very attentive without being overbearing. The house itself is amazing. Ean the manager gave us a tour and the rooms are beautiful and spotlessly clean. I would definitely recommend Durn House either... More

Beautiful rooms, amazing food and the proprietor's went out of their way to accommodate me, a lone women. They were always present though never intrusive and I would thoroughly recommend this place for a cosy romantic weekend. A special mention for the delicious food, a sumptuous feast of a breakfast and dinner was interesting, fine dining from locally sourced produce.... More

Went here for a quick night away for our anniversary. My wife didn't tell me where I was going, so I was a bit reticent. We walked in and I felt relaxed and sold on the place. The food was excellent, as someone said before, there is no formal dress code- very relaxed :) We will be back!

What a find! This small but very interesting hotel, is filled with knick-knaks and curiosities, with wonderful old world style. Tastefully refurbished, it and it's staff give guests a feel of stately luxury. Dinner was very good, but the hotel does not have a drinks licence, so remember to bring your own wine which will be courteously served to you.... More

A lovely welcome with a coal fire blazing in the reception hall. A place where you can go glam or in jeans. Welcoming, warm, comfortable and dining that is devine. Even the afternoon tea is a treat, the macaroons are as good as La Duree in Paris. The chef is up for the cullen skink trophy challenge this week, it... More
