Had a family meal here not too long ago and enjoyed the steak on the menu. A little bit on the pricey side, but it was very tasty! Everyone liked their meal but like I mentioned only thing was the price! Nice place to come for a special occasion or as a treat!

A friend and I decided we wanted some comfort food on a miserable, wet day and went to the Buchan Brae’s Hotel for some chips with blue cheese sauce. It wasn’t on the menu but the waitress kindly said she would ask the kitchen if they could fulfil our request. About 10 minutes later, a white gloved waitress appeared with... More

Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights for a wedding, found all staff to be very welcoming, excellent food and no complaints about the rooms. The wedding itself was superbly run by Jason, and a big thank you to his waiters and waitresses.Another mention must go to Sam the barmaid who put up with the crowd of residents till the... 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

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
