A group of us stayed over for a night or two and found very welcoming staff and excellent food which pleased us all . We all thought the experience well worth repeating. The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable and good value for money. Would recommend without hesitation.

The hotel has a wonderful setting right on the coast and the staff are wonderfully welcoming and caring. We could not have been better looked after. We needed somewhere to stay as we were attending a funeral in Buckie. We were given a very warm welcome after a very long drive and allowed to check in early so that we... More

Being very fussy, I seldom feel comfortable when staying away from home, but my night away here was very cosy, clean, and comfortable, with the added bonus of friendly attentive staff who know how to make you feel welcome. Will definitely be back!

Stopped for lunch only. Selection of for the hungry or not so hungry. Good food prepared and presented with a bit of thought. Great location up on the hill by the main road outside cullen with the restaurant having open views over the golf course and the bay.

Big thank you to Rena, Ian and the team at the Cullen Bay Hotel. Andy and I booked in very last minute on Saturday evening and we are very glad we did. We had the most fantastic warm welcome and, during our stay, Rena made excellent suggestions for our onward journey. Our room was lovely, warm, comfortable, quiet and well... More

Visited this hotel from our caravan site in nearby Findocherty. the dining room was full but we were seated in a smaller room with great views over the bay and served the same food as in the dining room. The staff were so helpful and the food was mouth watering. Will certainly visit here again on our next visit north.
