Afternoon tea consisted of three finger sized open sandwiches, lovely scone with... More

Beautiful hotel set in gorgeous grounds. The hotel has an old Scottish fel with relaxing lounge area and bar. The menu was somewhat disappointing with a limited choice but the food was excellent, well prepared, presented and served. The cost was reasonable for the type of hotel (£75 for 3 which included wine. Altho' we enjoyed our visit and meal... More

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

This place was my home away from home during numerous business trips. A fantastic setting, lovely food and great service. Do not miss the hike up the hill behind the house with great views over the surroundings. One day I want to bring my wife... see you again soon.

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...
