This is really rooms above a pub rather than a hotel I think. Our room was small cramped and a bit musty smelling. It did the job for somewhere to put your head down for the night but was glad not to be staying longer. We didn't eat at the bar in the evening but breakfast was ok.

My personal opinion is that this hotel is in need of a complete refurb of it's rooms, they are horrible from the dark furniture to the tacky pictures on the wall. The seats were stained, the carpet was stained and the bathroom was tiny. We had to ask for towels, glasses and extra pillows, all basics! The sheets on the... More

Went for a walk on Sunday afternoon with the dog and fancied a pint afterwards so went into the public bar. "Sorry, no animals allowed" I was told. "Company policy". I could see the point if I had been in the restaurant, but the public bar ? So not a dog friendly pub.

Nice little B&B over looking the North Sea. Room was comfortable and the bathroom very clean. Breakfast was very nice too. Didn't have chance to sample the in house restaurant due to it being very busy, so had to eat out. If you're looking to stay in the area for 1 or 2 nights, I would recommend this hotel.

We stayed in this hotel to attend a birthday party and wedding and it was just the ticket. The views from the room spanned across the coast, it was like being abroad. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food was second to none. True it could do with refurbishment but at these prices you get what... More

This hotel was just perfect for a recent business trip. The room was simple and clean. Unfortunately I didn't have a sea view but I wasn't in the room that much anyway. Would highly recommend this place and would quite happily come back with other half for a break away. The restaurant within the hotel was fantastic too. I ate... More

Decided to dine here on the spur of the moment last week on Tuesday night. We were very surprised at how busy the restaurant was but we were greeted by a smiling gentleman who assured us they could seat us no problem. We waited a few moments until they set a table for us. The menu is fairly varied and... More

I stayed at this hotel while I completed a few courses at Petrofac in the nearby Altens estate. The hotel was a really convenient location for this, taking a maximum of 15 minutes to drive during rush hour. The proximity to Altens was one of the factors that made me book this hotel, knowing how bad Aberdeen's traffic is, and... More

We went here for Sunday lunch with our wee boy. They have a good kids menu which comes in small or large portions. They are always good at getting you what u want. The puddings are fab too although I do say "bring back the famous sweet trolley". Something cove bay is missing.
