4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We ate at Ogilvies restaurant for the first time and weren't disappointed. The food was quality, friendly staff and lovely surroundings, a bit old fashioned, but I liked it. The drive outside needs a bit of maintenance, very bumpy, buts that's the only negative thing I could find. Would definitely visit again for a special occasion.

stayed here for the night when up visiting some friends. Hotel is ok for the price, starting to look a bit tired and could do with an upgrade, sitting areas at bar and lounge are nice. Rooms are ok but do need updating. Restaurant is very over priced and food is average, service was a not too bad. Pool is... More

This hotel is 13.5 miles from Fraserburgh. On maps it gives you 2 hotels. Check the postcode before you go. Place is tired and in need of a makeover but the room was clean and bed OK. Breakfast was good and plenty of it. Staff were accommodating and very pleasant. Has potential to be a four star if someone put... More

This hotel should be knocked down and replaced with a park! Upon arrival, the hotel receptionist was very pleasant and check-in was efficient and hassle free....That's the end of any hotel comparison I can make! The place was cold, shabby and very unwelcoming, we didn't arrive till late so agreed to meet in the bar after putting bags in the... More

Arrived about 9pm after a delayed flight. First impressions were the hotel needed some TLC and updating but the receptionist was initially very pleasant and friendly. However, it all went down hill from there! The restaurant and bar were shut - you the reason being it was the Sunday after the new year - we were not warned of this... More

Room was lovely. Hotel was clean. Food was disappointing and slow to be served. A promise of mince pies and coffee/tea. Everyone is still waiting for the mince pies. Was looking forward to a swim, the pool was closed the whole time we were there except the first morning. The Bar is over priced, most of the younger staff were... More

Booked with David Urquhart Travel for the Hogmanay Break and after reading some of the reviews regarding the Hotel I was to say the least dubious about how things were going to turn out. As per most reviews the hotel is certainly a bit tired and in much need of some refurbishment. My wife and I were allocated a room... More

Just in the process of writing a long complaint letter again for my parents regarding their New year break at the Waterside Hotel Peterhead. David Urquart while happy to cash in on the pensioner pound have shown a complete disregard for their client group. What hotels in this day and age ration food because they do not have enough to...
