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.

You couldn't give the Marcliffe more stars if you wanted to. It has earned the most in every category. The food was extraordinary. The service was flawless and the rooms were spacious, clean and charming. It is the gateway to catles, gardens, distilleries, Balmoral and Scottish history. where ever you want to go, the concieerge can guide you . The... More

Great hotel in a very pleasant surrounding allowing for a stroll in the garden. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Marcliffe and will return. Room of high standard with the necessary facilities and some compliments. First class bar and restaurant, very good dinner and all delivered by most attentive and service minded staff.

Nice property about 30 minutes from Aberdeen airport. Gorgeous old momentous and pictures. Very good restaurant and excellent service. Nice, large meeting room on second floor. Smallish rooms but plenty of electrical outlets for charging stuff.

My wife and I, and our little Westie - 'Merry', returned again to the Marcliffe last week for a 5 night break. As ever the accommodation was perfect for our needs with easy access out onto the car park area and lovely grounds through a French window. As my wife has walking difficulties it couldn't have been better. The staff... More

I came here for the spa day which included lunch. I was cold whilst receiving my treatments which was a disappointment (massage and facial). I would not return for beauty treatments. Lunch was lovely and I would return for this.

Spent a really lovely afternoon having afternoon tea. The staff were very welcoming and the service very efficient . We were served lashings of tea topped up regularly with lush sandwiches and very generous (equally lush )size cakes, which I was quite surprised at having experienced other several afternoon teas with more miniature type cakes. There was an excellent selection... More
