Returning to Raemoir House after 12 years was an amazing life moment. The Hotel sings with history and the attention to details that one wishes for but seldom receives. Staff could not do enough to make us comfortable even down to bringing a jug of real milk to our room for the tea. We delighted in the comfort of the... More

Have stayed here a couple of tims now and think its a really nice house. I particularly like the lounge/bar where you can relax on a comfy sofa infront of the fire. Feels very homely! The breakfast is a real plus point to. For first timers i would definately recommend asking for a room at the front of the house... More

I had a long and taxing day to come, working in Aberdeen. What better way to prepare than to relax, eat and sleep at Raemoir House? It is about 35 minutes away, in very beautiful countryside, with a manager (is he the owner?) who takes an intense and careful interest in the comfort, food and drink for residents. At present...

Spent a weekend at the Raemoir, staff were very attentive and the reception rooms and log fires very welcoming. Great views from our bedroom of Scolty hill. Our room was very spacious and the food was great ad well. Hotel is well positioned for a trip around the Cairngorms and not to far from Aberdeen and it's airport.

What a lovely place and wonderfully attentive staff. The second you walk in the door and then into the reception area of the House it is warm and welcoming. The atmosphere of the place hits you as you look around - warm colourful decor; history hanging on the walls and a very friendly and relaxed feeling. I can't really describe... More

We spent three nights here last week. This was our first visit. Our bedroom (Dunechty) was spacious and very comfortable with lovely views to the front of the hotel. The bathroom had been recently refitted. The drawing room, dining room and bar were extremely welcoming with large log fires burning in all three rooms. We ate in the dining room... More

We booked a dinner for 9 of us, all colleagues and dance teachers, as a belated Christmas night out on 1/2/14. The hotel is in a lovely setting and looked great, despite the horrific weather - wind and lashing rain. Warm and welcoming, it was everything we hoped for and more. The room we were given was laid beautifully -... More

We stayed at Raemoir House during a road-trip through Scotland and were very nicely surprised by the beautiful setting and the excellent dining restaurant. We don't usually stay at hotels where the drive from the front-gate takes a few minutes and there is a choice of car-park or helipad, but we do appreciate hotels which make something special out of...

Excellent experience - welcoming staff (and proprietor !) Food of a high standard. Generally one is left with the feeling that one is treated as a friend not just as another paying customer. The situation is delightful and We would recommend the hotel unreservedly.
