Excellent hotel, family run and very comfortable, friendly, value for money, good choice of menu and wholesome breakfast, although my trip was purely business this location is ideal for travellers. avoid Aberdeen come here !

Stayed for one night and was so surprised how quiet and relaxing the place was. Best nights sleep in any of the hotels I have stayed. Clean and cosy bedroom and everything you needed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

What a great find. the staff service was better than any 5 star hotel. Good food, comfortable room, excellent friendly service at a reasonable cost so close to Aberdeen seems like a fairy story but its true. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and central for so many places.

A colleague found this hotel when all of the hotels in Aberdeen were full, 40 minute drive to Aberdeen but one straight road. Rooms had all been recently renovated and decorated and were better than some of the 4 star big chains we had stayed in in the area recently and the prices are a steal. Food is first class... More

I stayed at the Commercial hotel for one night as I was up in the area to do some fishing. The single room I had was perfect for me and to a standard I would expect. I had a meal in the lounge which was very tasty (venison) cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. Being on my own... More

Found The Commercial Hotel by accident when our camping was not possible due to the weather. Unfortunately only got to stay one night. What a find!! Staff were helpful, rooms spotlessly clean and very comfortable, the most comfortable bed I slept on during our 10 day holiday. The food was good, had a lovely dinner, and couldn,t believe the breakfast... More

My husband and I took a road trip to the Highlands for the Bank Holiday Weekend. We planned the trip very last minute and most hotels and B&Bs were booked. We found that The Commercial Hotel was available, and we are so glad we stayed here! The town area was quaint and lovely, parking was convenient and right outside the... More

Working in and around Aberdeen it is difficult to find anything that is value for money, chain hotels very expensive in this area and independents either £120+ or full. So, searching a little further a field I find the commercial hotel and, taking confidence from the previous reviews, decided to book and can firmly say was not disappointed. The hotel... More
