The interior of this hotel was lovely. We had a room with a lot of space - very comfortable bed. Had dinner there which was really nice and good value. As we were leaving early and wouldn't be having breakfast, they organised packed snacks for us. The only downside was the wifi was only available in certain parts of the... More

My husband, daughter and myself stayed for one night as we were attending a wedding at Drumtochty Castle. We arrived before check in time on the Saturday and on arrival our room was available so we were able to take our suitcases to the room. The reception staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The hotel itself was lovely, the... More

Being the nearest place to eat to my home, I have visited here many times, my last visit for dinner was last month late in May 2015, when we all enjoyed a lovely meal. Having enjoyed it so much the last time, when the same friends visited this weekend we headed back to the Ramsay for our dinner last night... More

Have just spent weekend in area visiting friends, who recommended The Ramsay Arms. We both had a lovely stay. Room was bright, clean and big enough for the two of us. Breakfast was enormous. Full Scottish, porridge, tea and toast. Staff were very helpful with our questions on the area and nothing was too much trouble. Hope to be back... More

Stayed for four nights in this hotel. My room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent, both breakfast in the restuarant and dinner in the bar. I had a most enjoable stay and would definitely choose the Ramsay Arms if I come this way again.

As this is the only hotel in Fettercairn, statistically it must be average, but if I were to compare it with all the other hotels I have stayed in I would have to mark it poor. We booked for 2 nights for a family wedding at Fasque House and the location was fine. The room was comfortable and clean and... More

Used to love this place so much that we celebrated our wedding here ten years ago making regular trips for dinner since then. I don't know what has changed but recently the food has been far below the usual standard, the bar area was so cold I couldn't take my coat off and the staff were far from friendly -... More

I have eaten at the Ramsay Arms once or twice per year over the last decade. I usually experienced and came to expect genuine quality food. Today I ate there with 4 adult family members, the reduction in atmosphere, food quality standards and presentation was disappointing. Clearly the food regime has transformed and most certainly not in a positive manner.... More
