Got a great offer having stayed with Crerar hotels before, we had 2 night stay with dinner, bed and breakfast. It took us a wee while to get checked in, nobody in reception and struggled to find anyone in the bar or in the restaurant as the sign advised on reception desk, thankfully a young kid who clearly knew his...

Stayed two nights on an all inclusive deal. The staff and the food were tremendous with everyone trying very hard - and succeeding. The bedrooms are in need of updating but they are clean and the beds were comfortable. I can cope with the rest. Highly recommended which is not bad coming from an ex hotelier.

We stayed for 2 nights in September, having decided to go into the Cairngorns following a friends wedding in Aberdeen. The communal areas of the hotel were nice and we had high hopes. When we got to our room we were disappointed. While very clean and a reasonable size it felt like very little effort had been put into making... More

Great location in the heart of Deeside. Rooms could do with an update but they are clean and the bed was comfortable. Restaurant is excellent. Enjoyed a great steak dinner and equally fine breakfast in the morning. Staff very friendly.

We stayed two nights B&B with 1 dinner. The outside and entrance are great but there is a stale smell. The lounge and entrance could do with a couple of air fresheners. Or maybe if they lit the log fires? The room was awful, tiny, creaky floorboards, dreadful shower room, thin towels. But all was forgiven when we had the... More

Booked a superior double which wasn't at all cheap. The public areas of the hotel were perfectly pleasant although stairways and corridors I think need updating. The room was spacious but very basic and rather drab. Bathroom very disappointing - dated, with a dribbly shower with minimal water pressure. Staff were pleasant and breakfast was fine - however for the... More
