I attended Pittodrie House's Gala Ball for my new year celebrations with my close family and friends. What a night! The food was outstanding - hat's off to the chefs - very talented individuals! The ceilidh band was great and the fireworks at midnight were so beautiful. The event seemed to be a huge success with everyone having a great... More

Had a five star time a few months ago. Came back and really struggled to get a bit of fish for my guest. Her diet requires no sauces or batters or carbohydrates. We managed to order salmon. But it was such a disappointingly small bit of fish and tiny salad I felt a bit cheated. Also I realised we paid... More

My wife & i got married at this fantastic hotel on the 21st December 2014. We are glad to say that the day went without a single glitch. The effort that Brian McGinty & his fantastic team of Emma & Nicki made my wife & our guests feel at total ease & made sure that everything that we needed was... More

After hours of deliberating (we are a fussy family) we choose this incredible Hotel for our 1st visit to Aberdeen with my wife and 2 girls (aged 8 & 5) We had no issue finding the hotel and where greeted very warmly upon arrival along the spectacular views and beautifull grounds. We where lucky enough to stay for 2 nights,... More

Restaurant looks ok bit stuffy food had little choice after the first night but very well cooked ok if your a meat eater (Im vegi). Rooms and facilities are a massive let down I paid about £140 and... More

Dear Williamsdjg, Thank you for taking the time to write a review from your stay in November of last year. I must admit to being suprised by your review as Pittodrie House is a country house hotel almost 20 miles from Aberdeen city centre and our business mix is not reliant on solely the oil and gas industry unlike many...

We have been repeat guests at the hotel over the past 20 years, we actually had our wedding here also. Having been tempted by the manager's description of the new dining experience when here in the summer for afternoon tea, we decided to treat ourselves to a "Twixmas" break and purchased the DB&B package, albeit this did not actually cover...

Firstly a huge apology to the team at Pittodrie House for the delay in writing this review. I had the great pleasure of holding our wedding celebrations at Pittodrie House on the weekend of the 22nd November 2014. As the team are well aware I own my own pub company in Cheshire, hence the delay, due to returning to work... More

Had our Christmas lunch which I had booked and pre paid a number of months ago. I called the hotel to explain that my mother in law had been hospitalised and to cancel her place the day before. I asked that if any refund would be made as a goodwill gesture and was told that someone would call me back,... More

Stayed for a dinner, bed and breakfast option. Staff were very friendly and helpful. But regrettably overall it was a slightly disappointed stay. Admittedly it was freezing outside, but the public rooms were 'cool' despite the valiant attempts to crank up the wood-burning stoves. We went for the Signature tasting menu for dinner and knew that the D,B&B rate meant... More

This hotel is a perfect, romantic wedding venue, and the hotel's wedding planner, Brian McGinty, made sure my niece had a brilliant wedding. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and efficient, the food was good, and the fireworks were the icing on the cake (so to speak!). My gluten-free diet was also accommodated creatively and with no fuss. The... More
