We booked two nights here and arrived at 22.30 on the friday night, we were going to a function in the hotel on the saturday night,the receptionist was pleasant and helpful. The room , as stated by others, is in need of a coat of paint and some modernisation. Though for £65 per night for two it was average price.... More

Very disappointing stay at this hotel. I rmember when this hotel was the flagship hotel in the area but those days are very definitely gone, however they are still trying to trade on that past reputation and I think they will have a lot of one off customers who definitely won't go back if they have a choice. We arrived... More

I have to agree, this place is stuck in a time warp. If you enjoy paying good money for a dump then this is the place for you. Food wasnt too good , staff good. This dump needs a lot of money spent on it. I certainly would not go back or recommend this place to anyone.

i have stayed in various hotels over the years but this one takes the biscuit. The room was from the eights, outdated ? This cost per night £149.Would not pay £30.The place needs at least 10 million to refurbish.Do not go there.

This hotel is outdated and very poorly maintained. Only thing going for it is the food, the walls are stained so are the carpets, very unfriendly staff not very welcoming place at all, we couldn't sit in the bar as it was full of drunken louts playing loud music, this hotel was not worth £80 per night. I wont be... More

Here on business not long ago and was very middle of the road but good if you take it for what it is. Very friendly staff made up for dated rooms and furnishings. Food average but again filled a hole after a long days graft - what more can you ask for?

Stayed one night at the hotel. It was basic and food was ok. Breakfast was ok. Hotel clean and pool and gym facilities quite good. Free wifi and rooms quite basic. Bit pricey for what it is but not much selection in Peterhead. Staff very pleasant and helpful.

The pot holed road greeted us on our arrival, which I have to admit worried us. The reception gives a false sense of what is to come. The room was clean but extremely dated. The bathroom door had the bottom part missing/removed so you could if you wanted look under the door. I tried to close the curtains but the... More

The staff are really friendly and helpful the breakfasts are 10/10. I never used the health spa but my mate said it was really good I couldn't get him out the pool. The rooms could do with an update an new carpet as they are a bit thread bare in places but spotlessly clean and tidy would go back in... More

The hotel is really in need of some basic decor updating, however our room was clean (sadly I seem to have mislaid the pictures taken of the inside decor). The staff were really friendly although the young bar girl forgot our dinner drinks twice. We stayed for two days and booked the dinner and breakfast which was a set menu.... More
