My wife and I spent 3 weeks travelling around Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland and this was the most disappointing accommodation we stayed at in those 3 weeks. I had used TripAdvisor to help choose which hotel in the area and which room. I pre-booked the Turrit room for our arrival. We were very disappointed with the room. If refurbishing... More

Enjoyed a great family celebration recently, enjoyed a lovely home cooked meal served by very friendly and attentive staff. A great function hall for a dinner and dance. Needless to say the stunning views all within walking distance of the golf course, beach and Cullen.

Stayed here whilst working in the area and was suitably impressed. A large hotel on the edge of the bay with ample parking, very friendly and helpful check in, room was large and bed was huge with all amenities and nice decor. Bar was comfortable and restaurant over looked the bay with picturesque views. Menu had a good choice and... More

Looking for a cost effective place to stop between visits with friends I almost didn't pull in, as it looked expensive and beautiful but I thought what the hell.... Honestly I was shocked by the great value and every single staff member was just amazing and friendly and brilliant!! I got a beautiful room with an amazing view, a piping... More

We had been thinking of where to stop during our short drive along the picturesque fishing villages of the Moray Coast and this seemed the ideal place. Although it was not busy, the owner arranged a table at the lounge window so that my parents, my wife and I were able to look out on the town and the very... More

The hotel is easily accessible from the A class road to Fraserburgh. The friendly staff and the location made this hotel a good place to stay for our few days exploring the Moray coastal area. Though the room we were allocated had a sea view it was rather small and uninspiring in decor. There was not a great deal of... More

It was a very drizzly day so how pleasant it was to have such a warm welcome. We weren't exactly well dressed for a Sunday lunch but it didn't seem a big issue. Food great (Cullen skink then fish), service good and so was the view through the rain!. Next time I will stay over a spend a bit more... More

Fab hotel, really friendly with a warm welcome, particularly for our 2 young children. Rooms are comfortable and clean though I understand a refurb is planned. Views over the bay are out of this world, and the food is excellent - in particular, the Cullen Skink of course - but generally top of the range dining at really good value... More

....there is no denying that this hotel has a wonderful location but after that almost everything else is mediocre. The food is quite expensive and of variable quality. Although the serving staff are very friendly, the standard of service is very slow and poor. My breakfast order took almost an hour on three occasions (poached egg and tomato) and on... More
