Cannot understand any of the negative reviews at all. Such very kind, helpful, friendly staff who will do anything for you, every one of them (housekeeping included). Room immaculate and very comfy bed. Shower fab with lovely Lux shower gel. Delicious food, something for everyone! WiFi reception is best I've ever came across. Nice convenient shops banks post office takeaways... More

Comfortable, clean, friendly hotel with a varied menu providing a wide choice of quality.food. Access to some rooms a bit tricky with narrow corridors in some areas, but apart from that my stay was excellent.

Called in for lunch and was delighted with a very tasty meal served quickly by welcoming and friendly staff. The premises were modern up to date and attractive and the hotel is situated near the centre of town.

I visited Buchan Hotel as it is one of my family's favourite restaurants. I hadn't eaten there for a while so I wasn't sure what to expect. I had ordered a classic burger but it came with cheese which I don't like. Asked the waitress why there was cheese in the burger, she said the chef usually puts cheese in... More

We spent 2 nights here as part of a group. The reception area is a little old fashioned and we were told on arrival that smoking was not allowed - which was unnecessary. The dining area is newly furbished and extended and we experienced an enjoyable meal. Staff were pleasant. Bedroom small but comfortable. The question - would you go... More

We hadn't intended to stay at this hotel, however the New Inn down the road had double booked us, so we had little choice and, as it was getting late in the day, we stayed just the one night. We were charged £110 for one night!! No where on their price list or website is there a room costing £110!!... More

Our room was superb. It was located in the newly refurbished part at the rear of the hotel. We heard NO noise from outside or inside the hotel. Others in our party were not so fortunate, having been given rooms overlooking the main though road. A few complained that noise from revelers kept them awake until past 1am. However most... More
