Stayed here last night room comfortable we also went to the leisure centre pool which was nice & relaxing after a walk not bad for £45.00 B&B. The dinner at night was a carvery which was superb three course meal for £19.95 which was great value for money as the meal was superb & large enough for any appetite.

We needed a Hotel for one night while visiting the Fraserburgh area which had either a lift to other floors or rooms on the ground floor. There didn't appear to be a 'Hotel' suitable in Fraserburgh so we ended up with The Waterside Hotel. The Hotel has been taken over by Brittania Hotels and are in the process of renovating... More

Stayed for one night on a voucher deal. The carvery was very good and breakfast could not be faulted. Staff were very well mannered and helpful. The swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna were all very good. Only drawback to this hotel is the decor. Everywhere needs updating. Our window pane for example was "blown, the lampshade was hanging... More

Just spent saturday night here on a £49 groupon deal. Quite simply i am unable to find any grounds for negativity, because from beginning to end, everything about our stay was commendable. We were greeted at reception by a very nice lady who was pleasant and helpful in pointing us in the direction of our room for the night. On... More

The head waitress was so friendly and welcoming and it was a lovely relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant. The bedroom although basic was spacious and very clean. A complimentary bottle of Mouton Cadet was... More

This hotel was really good. with friendly staff. Food was also excellent with good facilities. such as the swimming pool etc. The only down side was the very hard bed.I would recommend this hotel to families and couples as the facilities are ideal.

This hotel has recently been taken over by Britannia Hotels. The New Year Celebration was a family affair with the function room containing 270 adults and kids. There was an excellent band playing called Glitz Function Band, they played all sorts of music from the 60's to current day, three female vocal and keyboard players with the best harmony's I...

David Urquhart 3 night stay was originally booked for the Adamton House Hotel near Preswick, which closed a few weeks ago and we were redirected to the Waterside Inn in Peterhead. The food was good apart from lovely veg being under cooked, the brussel sprouts could have substituted golf balls! Our room was very clean but tired, a lot of... More
