I went for high tea with my husband and son for the first time, wish now we got a chippy. It took a very long time to get served, after we were finally served, we got our toast. We wouldn't have minded the wait had it been busy, but it wasn't. Our main course arrived after 45 mins and it... More

Very surprised at the cost of Christmas lunch, especially when we were offered Christmas lunch at Nick Nairn's restaurant in the Hilton Garden Inn for less! On previous visits, we had been very underwhelmed by the quality of the food and service compared to how it used to be. It is a great shame to see what used to be... More

We stayed for one night whilst travelling. It wasn't cheap. The host showed us to a room he said would be quiet, and it was. The room had been newly renovated and was nicely detailed. The bathroom was cold, but apparently there is some heating the host had Forgotten to tell us about. The breakfast was good, except my coffee... More

For many years since the late great Sandy Warrender owned and ran this quaint old hotel the beating heart of bon hommie and good food has been sadly missing... Until now ! Current owner Ron Beedie (who doubles up as Fireman Ron) and his family have transformed this iconic old building into a beautifully modern and tasty establishment. The new... More

I don't suppose anywhere in reach of Aberdeen ,Peterhead and the oil industry is cheap. We had a very nice room in a refurbished part of the hotel. We were visiting relatives in the area at short notice and I have to confess this was not the first choice but we had a very satisfactory stay. We had dinner and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights & enjoyed our stay - although near the centre of Ellon it was very quiet & the hotel had free parking across the road. The staff were all pleasant & helpful & the room, although fairly small was spotless & comfortable. We did not dine at the hotel but the breakfasts were very good. We... More

Engagement meal ruined by bad table settings and terrible service. Meal booked well in advance and table settings agreed but nothing like agreed when we arrived. But after a heated discussion we were moved to conservatory where we should have been to start with. Starters were fine but when it came to clearing table waiting staff were atrocious and tried...

I have eaten a few times at The Buchan, and having Coeliac disease it can be difficult to find somewhere that offers gluten free food. The menu clearly stated which meals were GF, with a good choice of starters, main course and dessert. I had gluten free battered fish and chips and It was delicious. Would definitely recommend. The waitress... More

Booked here while attending a wedding, as the new inn was fully booked. Arrived at the reception with no one there, rang bell and had a 10-15 minute wait before being seen,We booked a double room but was given a twin. Room (108) was tiny, carpet dirty & like something from the early 70's, beds "well used" and showing age,... More
