My wife was given a gift voucher which enabled us to have tea for 2 at the Pittodrie House hotel. We decided to make a day of it and take our kids even though we knew we would have to pay for them. The price for afternoon tea at the Pittodrie House hotel is £18 per person, whether you are... More

When you first pull up to the hotel it looks spectacular and visually it is. Both the buildings, the grounds and the rooms are very nice. The service is also excellent from the staff there however there is a problem once you go beyond this. The food is really average at best. When you're in a remote location like this... More

It sounds like Pittodrie will always "lose" the reservation of guests who reserved a room through an agency whenever they have over booked the hotel with a wedding party or oil conference. This is indeed what happened to us. I'm sure if you are lucky enough to actually get your reservation that this is a decent place to stay. We... More

Although we travelled in the winter it didn't detract from the setting or the warm welcome. Although we have stayed at the hotel before we were looking forward to eating in the restaurant (Mither Tap) with its modern menu. We somehow managed to get lost en route and had to call the hotel for directions. Staff were very helpful and... More

Stayed here for a family wedding. Yes the venue is lovely and quirky. I am so glad that we had a dry evening, it was really cold evening. The reason I mention this is we were told that the only way to get between the Ballroom where the wedding was happening and the rest of the hotel was to walk... More

I have to say the setting is stunning and lovely inside but a bit quirky as this is a very old castle that has been converted to a hotel.
