I did not stay in the hotel, but visited it for a meal as part of a Rotary meeting. Lovely food, well presented and served quickly. I had scampi and chips. My husband had a very large cold meat salad. We both had brandy basket with lemon sorbet for sweet. The hotel also has an India restaurant with a good... More

Very nice family place, comfortable, traditional village hotel / pub but nice modern decor - the ideal balance, and very clean. The food was really outstanding. It is hard to find good non-Scottish food in the north of Scotland I think but the Indian meal was really special and we couldn't get enough - could have had it for breakfast... More

We had a meal recently with friends at the Indian restaurant within the Haughton. This was our first visit to the hotel and we were surprised how well appointed and decorated the venue was - it looked as if it had very recently been completed. The food was delicious, with a number of Indian favourites, and some house specialities on... More

Comfortable and clean hotel in friendly town west of Aberdeen, great value compared to Aberdeen accommodation prices, easily worth the extra miles. Helpful staff, Sheila is brilliant! Curries have a wonderful and well deserved reputation and also worth the extra miles! I always stay there and happily recommend it.

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...
