Had a one night stay during a business trip here in June. I was greeted by a lovely lady in reception, who checked me in efficiently and with a warm welcoming atmosphere. I had a room with a sea view, which were one of the best views in North Scotland I have experienced. The hotel has free WiFi, which whilst... More

My husband and I stayed here recently. It would seem that they are doing a total renovation of the hotel, most of which is finished. The restaurant looks very nice and has an amazing outlook over the bay and we had a very nice meal there. Our room (no 8) had a fantastic view of the golf course, the beach... More

Recently spent a weekend at this hotel and attended a charity Ladies Afternoon Tea which was brilliant. The hotel location is fantastic and the views are breathtaking. The food is excellent and the welcome from the owners Ian and Rena was brilliant. The staff could not do enough for you. Huge thanks to all, especially Ellis, Jude and Donna. Will... More

We just returned for having a couple of days at the Cullen Bay Hotel and we were delighted with the friendly staff, nice clean rooms, good selection of wines and good simple home-cooked food. The most amazing thing about the hotel is the view. The restaurant absolutely makes the most of it and to have good home-cooked food with the... More

Wonderful stay, friendly and welcoming staff. Comfortable room (turret room) great views even spotted a few Dolphins out in the bay. Would visit again without hesitation. The beach only minutes walk from hotel, highly recommended.

I visited with friends for dinner and was so disappointed with the food offering at the Cullen Bay. The welcome was good the young male waiter was really professional and clearly good at his job but the whole experience was let down by poor quality poorly cooked and over priced food. I had the mushroom starter which was cold and... More

We where staying in room 11 which is probably one of the only rooms in the whole hotel which doesn't get wifi. I was again very disappointed as I... More

My husband stays here regularly for business trips & I tagged along on his recent visit. The hotel is located a short way out of Cullen itself and has unobstructed view to sea. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean (as was the en-suite bathroom). Staff are very friendly and eager to help - and seem genuinely interested in their... More

Fantastic view over the coastline. Very warm welcome from very friendly staff who have a great deal of local knowledge. Food is excellent, this hotel is well worth a visit if it is just for a meal on a day out, or staying over

Enjoyed a very enjoyable 1 night stay at this very welcoming hotel. Beautiful views across Cullen Bay from sea view room. Staff were very friendly and helpful, thank you! We never ate at the hotel other than for breakfast of which was plentiful and good. We enjoyed our stay.
