Did not stay here but tried their dining and have to say it's one of the best meals I've had in a while. I first thought it was quite a posh, fancy like place that would serve over expensive portions that wouldn't even feed a 2 year old but I was much mistaken and received large portions of food which...

Went there for a birthday celebration meal with family and found it to be a very good meal and incredibly nice decor. We were presented with an evening meal menu, high tea menu and also a festive menu. I might be picky here, but that was too much choice. The food was hot and well presented as well as being... More

Just had to try Ellon's newest eatery at the Buchan Hotel. The speciality of the new facility is tappas. It was fine, but pretty basic. Lacked ambience. Food was good, but left a little disappointed, especially as the name of the new restaurant was never explained to my girl friend and myself. Needs a good mine host to attract customers.

Went for meal. From offset was wrong. Smokers standing right outside the hotel door, surly there have a smoking area for them. In the hotel we were seated quickly, at the back of what reminded me of a typical cafe. Have been to nicer garden centres. Waiter informed us is the wrong soup. We had to ask someone to come...

Visited for an evening meal, we found the menu to be very over priced (average £7.50 for a starter and £15 for main course) so we opted for the high tea (£13.50). We received 1 slice of toast each, main course was very nice BUT the chef "refused" my request to have half rice and chips with the curry. I... More

Definitely a pleasant surprise as far as the rooms are concerned - clearly recently renovated and very stylish, with well equipped little 'coffee station'. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants and cafes and is just by the river and a big supermarket, so you're close to anything you might need. Only thing we didn't really like was the breakfast -...

Didn't stay in this hotel visited for a meal so can't comment on any of the rooms. Restaurant was clean nicely decorated with old photographs of Ellon, staff were very friendly service was very good. High tea for two with soft drinks £30 good value for money although scones were a bit on the small size! Would recommend

I found this place by accident - and I'm glad I did! Its been fully revamped and for the better. The rooms are superb, clean and modern and hard to pick fault in - if there was one it would be take a room off the main street up the middle as noise can be bad from the boy racers... More
