Have stayed in this hotel a few times while in the area. New owners have been working through a slight refurbishment but I really fell there is no improvement. Some rooms are slightly up dated but others are needing more work. The coffee filter machine that was there in the past has now been replaced with sachets of instant coffee.... More

Stayed a week. I was reminded of hotels 10 to 20 years ago though I understand the owners are planning a major refurb of rooms and especially bathrooms this autumn as they are a bit tired. Staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. I was particularly impressed with the efforts they made to accommodate my dietary needs. The cooked breakfasts were... More

We stayed at this hotel the weekend of the Portsoy Boat Fesitval at the end of June 2014. Staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. Our breakfast was amazing. Our room had a sea view which is worth asking for.

The location was stunning, overlooking a golf course, beach and the sea. What a pity we were viewing the scenery from a weary property. This was the only Hotel in Cullen, so demand well exceeded supply. There was no competition locally and there was no incentive to deliver something special. The result was a large B & B masquerading as... More

After a stay at The Cullen Bay I thought I'd better revisit Tripadvisor reviews, as I'm sure that I stayed at a different hotel. Certainly the hotel looks amazing when driving up to it, but the entrance was littered with cigarette ends, not a good start. Check in was curt and unfriendly. The room was tired and shabby, wallpaper was... More

Its dad's birthday, it was 'nae bother' whatsoever to take the phone to say hi, sort out a pudding and for them & sing happy birthday. Well worth a trip and a stay... More

One night stay on a Saturday night - staff were accommodating and helpful. Room was clean, but felt the hotel was quite dated. We were excited for breakfast as we had heard good things, and the menu looked exciting, but in reality there was only one member of staff on, and we waited for around half an hour until we... More

We've just returned from three very enjoyable nights at the Cullen Bay Hotel. Fantastic views of the bay from our room and the dining rooms, everyone hoping to see the Dolphins. Very comfortable room and friendly staff helped to make our stay perfect.
