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.

I booked this hotel along with others for attending a wedding in Alford. The other reviews on here made me a bit wary but I was pleasantly surprised. Looks like a very traditional country hotel from the outside but very clean and well maintained grounds and car park. I was greeted at reception and shown to my room politely and... More

The bar and beer garden were fine in the sun, the room was ok but breakfast service was terrible. The waitress had all the charm of a traffic warden, seemingly incapable of understanding that my wife and I wanted a table for two.. Breakfast was only served from 9 to 9.30 but luckily someone hoovering outside our room at 0845... More
