This is My Second Stay here, and I wanted to Express what a Lovely Welcome with first Class Facilities that this Hotel really has. Coming from the Aberdeen Malmaison the night before where it had been a Big Dissapointment ( as a Single traveler I did not think Malmaison were At All helpful Or interested ) it was a Joy... More

Stayed here for a wedding a couple of weeks ago with six others. The surrounding area of the hotel isn't great but the inside is fine. Our room was of a reasonable size with an adequate bathroom. We ate at the hotel twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. The service was rather erratic but very friendly, the food... More

We have been customers of this establishment since it opened. Tony and his staff are professional and friendly. Food is of a great standard. My husband and I celebrated our ruby anniversary with a lunch in March.We were given a private room to celebrate with family and friends. Tony and staff were execellent and they made our anniversary very special.... More

Arrived late as a single female traveller for a 2 night stay, I had stayed before so knew the set up of the hotel. Breakfast staff were a delight I'm sure it was Helen who was in charge and would do anything for you. No vegetarian sausage or haggis to offer which is disappointing of a hotel of this standard...

I visited the Buchan Braes on business for one night. It has been transformed from an old officers mess. The quality of the room was excellent with good furnishings and a great standard of service. It was the small things that made the difference; sweets left on the pillows, a sewing kit and shoe shine in the dressing table drawers.... More

Situated on - I believe - an old RAF site....hence the design and surrounding buildings. Very modern and tastefully decorated interior with spacious and spotlessly clean rooms. Meals in either the Lounge area or the 'Grill Room' - which is more expensive (but not excessively so) - are of a really decent standard. My ONLY grump would be the lack... More

Definitely NOT 4-star: the rooms or the restaurant. Although we book a table for 6:30, we weren't seated until after 7:00. Guests are not allowed into the restaurant until their food is out of the kitchen. Probably a way to force drink sales in the bar. And no hot water for showers this morning. Will never be back!

Attended my nephews wedding reception at Buchan Braes last night. The hotel is located just a few miles outside Peterhead. The reception staff were very welcoming and check in was fine. My room was on ground floor at the rear of the hotel which proved to be very quiet. Room and bed very comfortable, bathroom well equipped with a good... More

This is truly an unexpected hotel. It seems like a place out of the seventies in its atmosphere and decoration. But do not let it fool you. The food is excellent, the rooms very efficient and the staff pleasant and helpful. I recommend stopping there, even though Peterhead is not a great stopover.

I stayed at this hotel last night on business, when I arrived the staff were very attentive. I am not good with room on ground floor and reception staff were very good about moving me. Thank you for that. Room lovely and comfortable. Would say that the bathroom was rather small and the glass around the sink could be dangerous... More
