Enjoyed another fantastic meal here on the 13th of November at a business dinner. We had prawns in Bloody Mary lsauce to start (amazing) and the beef for main which was cooked to perfection. An amazing treat for the special person in your life if you go along to the restaurant and stay overnight.It is also a terrific hotel if... More

There is something very special about the Marcliffe. It is unique. I've been there many times and it never fails to live up to those five stars in accommodation, service and food. However, on this one occasion and probably the last time I will be there before it closes was a disappointment. It was a function and a set menu... More

We have just returned from 4 wonderful nights at this amazing hotel. There was simply nothing to find fault with. It's set in very beautiful, well tended grounds, the room we had was quite lovely. The staff are awesome, the attention to detail is very evident in everything they do for you. As for the food...unbelievably good. Sadly, we were... More

Fantastic service with very nice staff. The meal was one of the best I've had in aberdeen. Expensive but could not fault the meal or the service. I find in a lot of restaurants you are hurried through your meal . Here it was relaxed and perfectly timed.

Stayed at the weekend as a friend was celebrating her birthday with a dinner in the evening. Hotel was superb and the staff very helpful. The dinner was truly stunning, one of the finest meals I have ever enjoyed.

Very pleased with the room and in-room amenities provided. Spa was disappointing as a long way from our room and hard to get an appointment. Had long wait for dinner as it was very busy - need to think about booking time when planning visit rather than when you arrive - however food was heavenly and worth the wait.

The lodging, food and service are first class. A shame it will be closing in March 2015. Until then, size the opportunity. One note: make sure you reserve a spot in the restaurant as early as possible. The room is rather small. But the food and wine choices are broad, the quality extraordinary and the preparation imaginative.

We stayed for 2 nights and loved every minute. Room was beautiful - everything you could have asked for. But the staff were super. We ate in the restaurant, had drinks in the bar and all chatted to us to ensure we were enjoying our stay. A memorable trip. Disappointed to hear it is closing.
