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.

Booked the hotel as it was on our cycling route, and thought it was excellent. Safe and secure indoor storage for our bikes. Attentive and helpful staff. Ate in the hotel and the food was very good. Would definitely use again if in the area.

Beware the Buchan Braes, it will suck you in. From the greetings on arrival to the comfortable rooms and the quality of food and friendly staff, this hotel is one of the best we have visited. Only small detail is that heating in bathroom in our particular room could be better due to each having a window (unusual in hotel... More
