The rooms on the night before and the night of the wedding were all superb, clean and ensured we got a great night sleep. We had our ceremony in the Billiard room, which was... More

My son and his new wife held their wedding ceremony and reception at Pitodrie House Hotel, Inverurie yesterday and it was absolutely fantastic. It could not have been better. Organisation was spot on and service was second to none, with all staff being very helpful and accommodating. They could not do enough for us, and they made Neale and Alex's... More

We headed to our room which was really nice, comfortable and spotlessly clean. We ate dinner in the evening but could only have a table... More

I am following up from my Husband's review (Gary N). You said that we paid for the service, ambience and location. Granted the location is picturesque, however I didn't rate the ambience or service as anything other than average. For £18 a head I would expect a dry table cloth and the flowers on the table to be full of... More

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
