I have been to pittodrie house a number of times and it never disappoints. We went there recently to have lunch with santa! It was great, the food was fantastic, couldn't fault it at all and was in a nice cosy dining room at the back. It is expensive £13+ for a glass of wine, but it's nice place to... More

Attended to festive lunch with my family. I wasn't really impressed with the food for the cost of it. Starters where bland and needed seasoning. Turkey was very moist but flavours average. I had biscuits and cheese for pudding and they where amazing. The sun was shining in the room causing two of us to have to squint out whole... More

We've stayed in this hotel 3-4 times over the last 10 years & are drawn back to its quirky, comfortable,lived in atmosphere of slightly faded grandeur.It seems to have decided to become a gourmet restaurant instead.I think this is a mistake.It is well out into the countryside and you want to walk breath the fresh air & have a wee...

My husband and I have just returned from a two night stay at Pittodrie House. It did not disappoint, from the minute we drove up the stunning driveway to checking in, it was obvious that this was going to be an experience to remember. The hotel itself is beautiful with roaring fires and relaxing rooms and was decorated for Christmas... More

Booked a stay in the hotel to catch up with friends. Our rooms were really nice and we were very pleased with them. The hotel is an old country house and has lots of character. We had a nice time there but the dinner was a real disappointment. The soup was cold when served and when we returned it, it... More

Spent an amazing weekend at our daughter's wedding on 23rd Nov 2014. Great location, fantastic food and very well appointed rooms. The team, especially Brian, Nicki, Emma and Daniel, looked after everyone exceptionally well and nothing was too much trouble for them.
