Went on deal which seemed good for £49. We would have been better in a caravan. Room 114 was rubbish . Double bed was single plus two inches. Found out receptionist was on our floor. Were we in staff quarters? Deal paid should be half of full value Not half value. Are there better rooms? We feel like we were... More

We stayed here on a Itison deal, one of the reasons we chose the hotel was it is pet friendly, that evening we could not believe our luck, the value of our evening meal was more than the voucher price, and the food was excellent. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant especially to our dog, the receptionist showed us... More

We stayed here on 20th July 2014 and for what we paid we just couldn't fault it! Yes the decor is extremely dated and it could do with new furnishings especially bedding (mattress was ANCIENT and pillows and duvet were worse for wear) but on the whole we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were friendly the room was clean... More

The photos on the hotel website are so far from reality that the hotel should be reported for false advertising. This is a 2 star hotel so I wasn't expecting the Ritz but the general state of repair was so bad its as though the owners are going out of their way to make it bad. We stayed in room... More

Staff were very friendly and helpful, food was good and plentiful. Overall great value for money and would definitely return ( with a... More

Yes, it is run down, and yes, it could do with updating, but it was clean, comfortable and the evening meal was excellent, as were the friendly staff. Breakfast was great too. I enjoyed the stay on beautiful Deeside. Great value for money.

Firstly, the staff here were absolutely lovely in every way. Everyone we met and talked to was so hospitable. What was uncanny though was the APPALLINGLY maintained property. It was almost to the point of disbelief!!! The caring nature of the staff was such that even the most appallingly maintained room was spotless, which is amazing... I cant imagine what... More

We stayed on Thursday 19 June for one night, our room was lovely with a huge comfy bed, settee, nicely furnished with plenty of light and a decent bathroom, so all good to start with. Unfortunately when we left our room to go downstairs we found that we could not lock the door, it was impossible to lock the door... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Probably the oldest coaching inn to be found in Scotland, the Huntly Arms Hotel was first built in 1432 and has played host to Jacobite leaders and even later, Queen Victoria. Located in the heart of Royal Deeside the hotel has retained much of its traditional charm and character and is just the thing for a relaxing and memorable Scottish break. Leisure seekers will enjoy the local area as many golf courses are within a 50-mile drive of the hotel, with country pursuits, gliding, water-skiing and cycling all available nearby. ... more   less
