Herb crusted cod with cullen skink sauce was excellent. The hotel prides itself in using locally sourced seafood given its close proximity to Europes Largest Whitefish port - Peterhead. Our party all enjoyed their meals, excellent service and the prices are reasonable.

Excellent as always. The staff bend over backwards to help. Fantastic food and service. We did ask for a room with a walk-in shower on booking, but on arrival this wasn't possible. Put in a room with a shower cubicle, which was satisfactory. The bedside light didn't work and was reported and on leaving, 3 days later, still hadn't been... More

We were at a wedding here on Oct 11th and cannot fault the place. We stayed in the Sandford Room for a couple of nights and it was spotlessly clean. The staff were so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The meal at the wedding was amazing and the service and the staff immaculate. Would highly recommend... More

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights whilst working in the area, and would gladly return. Whilst I can`t comment on the room rates (my employer paid for my stay) I can only comment on everything else. I received a friendly welcome at reception, and booked in to my accommodation to find a clean and spacious room with everything... More

We stayed for 2 nights whilst attending a wedding at the hotel. We had room 102 which was very close to the bar/reception. The food in the restaurant and at the wedding was excellent. Breakfast was cooked to order, staff very friendly and helpful. The location is not very good with nothing to do but the hotel itself is perfect.

Whats not to like, as soon as you walk in the interior decor is stylish and clean. The friendly local staff are highly attentive. The local produce is really scrumptious. I havent stayed here but by all accounts the rooms are luxurious. A regular place for us. It is always busy which speaks volumes. Have also heard rave reviews about... More

Stayed for two nights and loved it! Nice and quiet, very relaxing. Great rooms, comfy bed. Not a long walk to my room (206) so don't quite get some of the feedback in other reviews. The food is first class! .. loved the curry bread. Breakfast excellent, freshly cooked to order. Staff are friendly and helpful. When next working in... More

Nice rooms and nice breakfast, the only downside is the location, not much to do in the area, it looks like this was an ex military base or something, but as I said ok for a quick visit, the rooms are a bit away from reception but not any problem.
