We spent a night at the Maryculter hotel and had a very nice experience. The rooms were a decent size and well maintained. Th breakfast was good but our favorite part of the hotel is the old section of the hotel. It was a fun place to retreat to with it's large fire place and mid evil vibe. Throw in... More

We visited for dinner the other evening. It was glorious sunshine so we sat outside and enjoyed the spectacular view of the river. We had the fish and chips they were lovely. The chips were home made and crispy. On the side was homemade tarter sauce which I don't like but I was assured it was very nice. The staff... More

Visited Maryculter House Hotel last weekend and stayed on a dinner, bed and breakfast deal. The location is beautiful for a start, and so the setting alone, on the River Dee, was impressive upon arrival. Warm welcome and we were impressed with the interior of the hotel throughout, from reception to the room to the lounges and the dining room... More

The hotel is in one of the most picturesque areas of Aberdeenshire. A great sightseeing drive along the river and rolling farmlands gets you to an ancient Knight Templar Priory! It is now the Maryculter House Hotel, and one of its lounges goes back to those times. Great place to settle in a chair facing the mother of ancient fire... More
