Nice place, just visited for a meal. Was quite quiet in the restaurant although the bar seemed busy. The staff were friendly and were helpful and catered for gluten free which was nice. The menu had plenty variety to choose from too and portion sizes were good!

We were looked after extremely well by the Proprietor Teresa, and her colleagues. The hotel was well run and comfortable. An excellent freshly cooked breakfast before we set out each day and good evening meal in the friendly bar or dining room. Altogether a very enjoyable week.

We visited these premises on 27th January 2015 for evening bar meal. My friemd enjoyed the scampi and I tried for the first time? Chicken Rendang, a Malaysian Curry with rice and nans. The curry was delicious, as was the scampi. A bowl of chips was also provided which we enjoyed. We have been here before and will return when... More

Went to the marykirk hotel with a friend in October 2014 for an evening meal. First impressions were ok, the staff were not very attentive throughout the evening, we ordered our meal, we had deep fried brie and deep fried mushrooms. Starters were ok, although the cheese was tepid in the middle and not runny. Mains - duck and salmon,... More

What a lovely meal my husband and I had in this hotel today. Best meal in a long time steak pie out of this world. Lovely old fashioned cosy, homely hotel I can highly recommend. Parking available just outside door of hotel.

Another lovely stay at Marykirk Hotel. As per usual everything was great. Clean warm room, excellent food, great pint and service to match. Will be back next year for our annual 3 day fishing trip. Well done. All the simple things done well. My guest was equally impressed. Thank you.

My wife and I stayed at the Marykirk when I fished for salmon on the North Esk river. We were made to feel very welcome and at home. Room was generously sized and everything was there that may be expected of a decent hotel. An excellent bar which also serves food. Highly recommended.
