Great cocktail lounge with many single malt scotches. Caters to golfers, And the hotel restaurant was outstanding. All our entrees were world class. The billiard room has neat... More

So glad this hotel did not close. Visited with 5 family members, as usual can not fault the service, the food, the atmosphere. You can always count that the Marcliffe will provide excellent service, food and atmosphere. Well worth a visit

We stayed here for a week in a junior suite. A really top notch hotel but with understated elegance. The whole hotel was superb. The reception staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Our room was very generously proportioned with a lovely big bathroom and shower. Lovely Molton and Brown shampoo etc. We ate dinner there a couple... More

I was just at the hotel for Afternoon Tea with some friends whilst visiting Aberdeen from South Africa. (I am from Aberdeen) It was absolutely lovely being back at this glorious establishment but 2 criticisms. First of all the price. We did have a couple of bottles of Prosecco......but £36.50 a bottle???? You can buy a bottle of Prosecco in... More

Staff and service is spot on... More

I knew the marcliffe from a previous golf trip to the Aberdeen area but had read the owner had sold the property and closed the hotel. Unfortunately for him, the deal fell through and he decided to reopen. We got lost finding it but once there for 2 nights, all went well. Lovely rooms and baths at reasonable price to... More

Stayed at the Marcliffe several times and was impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of the front desk and restaurant staff. Listening to the piano on cold Aberdeen evenings while sampling some of the fine whisky collection is a rare treat! The Conservatory restaurant is absolutely top-notch fine dining.
