Stayed for a week on business. Customer service folks very helpful, hotel itself is very nice, and rooms are to a high standard - way, way above anything locally available, by a LONG way. Food is excellent. Room has come a long way since the buildings previous use as Officers Mess- very nicely fitted out, and the bed was comfortable.... More

I stayed at the Buchan Braes in August 2012, upon arrival I was told by the receptionist that they were very busy that evening, so I had been upgraded to a suite. Firstly great start to the stay, from there on staff were very attentive and made me feel very welcome to the hotel. The suite itself was very clean... More

Impromptu decision to stop by for Sunday lunch after a bracing beach walk proved to be a good one. Service was excellent throughout, from the immediate cheery greeting to the efficient retrieval of coats from the cloakroom when we left. Although we didn't have a booking, we were made very welcome and seated in the comfortable lounge to peruse the... More

This is a lovely hotel a little out of peterhead however it has it's own restaurant and bar which is perfect so you don't need to go anywhere. The food and drink is not particularly cheap but it is city prices and isn't ridiculous - £8 for 2 drinks. Rooms are lovely and extremely clean. Service is lovely. Staff are... More

Arrived with friends to a lovely glass of bubbly and afternoon cream tea on Hogmanay afternoon. Rooms were on ground floor and although not huge were perfectly acceptable. Beds were clean and comfortable. Five course dinner was lovely, with good choice options. An appearance at the start of the evening of the Buchan Pipe Band was a great treat. The... More

My partner and I had booked for the hogmanay party this year and were absolutely delighted with our stay. We were given the garden suite for some reason which was very nice. The hotel is spotlessly clean in all the areas and in the rooms there are plenty of towels and complementary beauty products. The meal and drinks we had... More

This is a very nice hotel for s short stay or business trip. You are m are unwelcome by very pleasant staff. The bedrooms are very spacious with huge beds that you can get lost in. The bedrooms have an integral safe which is free to use. The breakfast menu is wide ranging. Lots of cereals, fresh fruit and breads.... More
