Plus:- Good location; good amenities; friendly welcoming staff: gym; pool; free wifi Minus:- tinned tomatoes for breakfast . . . . . .yuck! Only sweet thick German house wine; wifi didn't reach our bedroom Overall:- You get what you pay for! I liked the shabby, comfortable decor, though the hotel could certainly do with a makeover. The bedroom was fine... More

Went up for a womans football game. Service excellent, bar staff great fun, good breakfast selection. Would definitely recommend. The location had some development work going on and is in a lovely place, ease of access on the A90. Very simple to get in and out with ample parking. Great value for money.

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
