I was there today for lunch and noticed they had beef, chicken and Tikka dishes on the menu which I thought was surprising for a rural hotel. I enquired about strength and was advised by the very friendly and attentive staff that could be arranged. Opting for the Vindaloo I was chuffed to bits as it was like one of... More

Only stayed one night but it was lovely. Quite traditional I suppose but very comfortable and inviting. My room was great. Lovely new bathroom, great shower and lots of space for clothes and things in the wardrobe. Really comfortable bed and very nice bed linen. The staff were really friendly and helpful too especially the lady who served our breakfast...and... More

We popped in past here on our way to Huntly for a bar lunch, décor is nice and the staff reasonably friendly, the food just awful. I initially wanted scampi but the waitress did not know what tartar sauce was, so I opted for a chilli burger with chips. Unfortunately the burgers were of the very cheap frozen variety which...

I stayed in the Haughton Arms for twelve nights whilst on business in the Aberdeen area. I stayed in the Murray room which was very comfortable and had all the amenities I required for my stay. The room is situated at the rear of the hotel and is nice and quiet. It had a single bed, TV, Hairdryer, En-Suite and... More

Reading the other reviews we must have hit a bad night, Tuesday must be when most staff have a night off. The bar area lacked any atmosphere, a few folk were sitting around but despite there being nobody waiting at the bar it took 10 minutes to get a drink. The lady who was 'on the bar' did eventually stop... More

Now I hesitate in posting this review for purely selfish reasons, over the past 3-4 years I have enjoyed staying at the Haughton Arms and if it becomes too popular it will become more difficult for me to book in to the hotel. The bar serves great beer, and Reuben's restaurant serves delicious Indian food which I look forward to... More

The staff at the Haughton Arms at Alford offer a warm welcome, lovely clean, comfortable rooms and great food in the evening and for breakfast. Sheila's porridge is a winner! The dining room has an interesting display of musical instruments and art work. I work regularly in Alford and always enjoy the peaceful, friendly stay at this hotel.
