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

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
