We stopped here after a long drive and the meals on offer were superb The sirloin steak was really tasty and melted in your mouth and partner had prawns and again cooked to perfection. The staff we encountered were really nice and professional and credit to management. A great place to stop for lunch or evening meal with lovely surroundings... More

This hotel opened on the site of the former Bodam RAF base circa 2007. Visited for the first time during mid January 2016 for lunch. I agree with previous comments about how dull the place looks from the outside - but inside it exudes quality and tasteful modern design. The car park is quirky - ample parking behind the hotel...

Looks rather dull from outside but this isn't reflected on the inside of the hotel. Rooms very comfortable and well appointed with tasteful decor. The wait for bar meals can be a little long and the bar is on the expensive side for the area but overall a very nice hotel.

I've eaten here a few times and the food is always the best quality. Staff and service are great. Will definitely be back. Hotel rooms are really nice. The way the staff handle a function is terrific. Have been to two weddings here, Jason ran the show both times and did a fantastic job.

Disappointing Festive Meal. Poor choice, first time for courgettes served along with the "festive Turkey" All choices came with potato puree..... Trio desert despite looking lovely was a huge disappointment. Service was not of the usual standard. My husband left the restaurant feeling rather hungry..... Portions meagre , tasted okay but not fabulous..Family member cancelled their Christmas Eve booking next... More

Stayed at buchan braes just outside Peterhead for the first time last week. The hotel was well furnished with nice rooms. As the weather outside was cold and windy it was comforting to walk into a warm hotel room. Beautiful evening meal and a well catered breakfast was available the next morning. Unfortunately I received a twin room rather than... More

This was my first visit to Buchan Braes Hotel and although the approach to the hotel looks somewhat like an industrial estate but on arrival at reception the building is absolutely charming. We were just so warmly welcomed and the staff attended to my every whim (I needed a chair with a high back!!). The lounge area is so airy... More

The road trip up to the hotel has great views. Well it.would have if there wasn't thick fog all.the way from.the north east...... The entrance to the hotel is a bit of a let down, based on on old army base with a few run down bungalows.and industrial units just in front. The greeting from the deception was faultless, this...

We stayed here for two nights mid-October for a friend's wedding and were very impressed by everything the hotel had to offer. The bar was lovely, the food and the restaurant very good with an excellent standard of service both friendly and helpful as well as very professional. The rooms are really very good as well - modern and clean... More

In for lunch with friends today couldn't fault the food or the service. The young staff were happy to sery and very professional in their manner and appearance. We had the set 2 course which was great value for money with one dessert and cheese board drinks pushed the bill up but that's to be expected. We travel a fair... More
