So loved staying here which feels somehow more special than just a hotel. The staff are all genuinely welcoming, friendly and go the extra mile. Setting is picturesque and quiet and a haven of peace in the outskirts of a now bustling city. We stayed in Fyvie Suite which was a complete delight and that Oh so comfortable bed! Breakfast... More

It's been a while since i've been to the Marcliffe and even longer since I ate here outwith a wedding reception. Food, service and atmosphere all excellent. Exceeds expectations. On the pricey side but still well worth it.

As our 5 year old was having a sleepover with his cousins, my wife & I decided to treat ourselves to a dinner at the Marcliffe. On calling to reserve and being offered a fantastic rate, including a nights stay in a mini suite, we decided to have a sleepover of our own! From the moment we arrived the service... More

Have had lunch & dinner here many times, more recently this week & this hotel has lost none of its sparkle despite closing down later this year - what a tragedy. The food was sooooo good, had quail & black pudding for starter, then cod on a bed of some sort of thick soup delicious! then a medley of citrus... More

Nice environment, great staff, nice welcoming people - food is good, perfect for the environment, and fantastic place for a cup of coffee or a wee dram before heading home or to the room... In addiiton, they are in a beautiful setting... very nice.

First time visiting the marcliff, it was for a function dinner. Usually at function dinners with 150 guests you don't expect too much from the food but this was amazing. Each course came hot and the whole table was served within a couple of minutes. The food itself was just lovely. The service was brilliant, waiters refilling wine glasses and... More

This is the only place I stay when in Aberdeen. The service, the location and genuine smiles are appreciated. The hotel instantly makes you feel at home and when entering the hotel, especially after a busy day, you are able to breathe, relax and forget about your work day. I highly recommend this hotel and I'm saddened it will be... More

Having been to the Marcliffe many times over the years, including my own wedding reception, it continues to be the best hotel in Aberdeen. The restaurant offers a great menu, fantastic service and is very relaxed.

I have had afternoon tea at the Marcliffe 3 times (and have 3 more booked in already) and it is definitely the best. The whole experience is far superior to other venues in Aberdeen, with the wonderful ambiance of the drawing room and the high quality service from staff. Unlike most afternoon tea, you are able to select your choice... More
