My husband and I heard about Pittodrie House from a friend who said she loved the hotel and the atmosphere the staff create there. When our anniversary came, we decided to get away for a night and choose here. When we arrived, the reception team were happy to chat and checked us in no problem at all. They congratulated us...

The small castle and its surroundings were absolutely gorgeous and I guess this it what you pay for. The room was an average hotel room. The lights were poor - I'm glad that i didn't stay here for a wedding because it was difficult for a woman to find a good place to do hair and makeup. The bathroom was... More

Stayed here with another couple in mid week July. The hotel and grounds are wonderful. The food was of a high standard. The staff let the hotel down. They were not interested and impolite.

Attended a wedding here in November, it was a lovely day. The meal was really good too. Fantastic views from the hotel due to the location. The room we had was nice, very spacious with a nice bathroom and a comfy bed.

For the sum of money we paid, let alone the rack rate, the hotel represented low value, even though we were upgraded to a superior room. Service was ok. We were made to feel second class citizens due to enjoying a B&B & dinner deal. Our room could have been cleaner on arrival. The complimentary water bottles (x2) had each... More

We were at this hotel last week. The staff was very welcoming. The room was clean but had an unpleasant smell about it. I opened the windows and the fresh air cleared it out.

Pittodrie House was the stunning venue for my daughters wedding. On arrival the reception staff were welcoming, efficient and very helpful. My room was spacious, very comfortable and conveniently located near the beautiful ballroom.

We had a one night stay with our six year old in July 2014. Accommodation was spacious and comfortable. The rooms are well maintained and finished to a high standard.

I like coming here but today was disappointed. No haddock on the menu in the Snug Bar. As there is such a small choice of food in the Snug Bar it was very disppointing to not be able to have fish.
