I love Pittodrie house, it's setting is second to none. When I decided to treat my husband to a large family party for his 80th birthday it was the obvious choice. The food, staff and ambience were absolutely fabulous. My daughter decided on a theme and they accommodated us with no problems.the ballroom was superbly decorated and from the champagne... More

Nice views, nice touches in the room such as a coffee Machine, big bath etc. The reception staff were really friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed a lovely breakfast... More

My boyfriend took me here as a surprise for my birthday and I have to say it was wonderful! Dinner, bed and breakfast- the food was incredible!!!! Lovely just walking the grounds and relaxing, the hotel staff were very accommodating and even brought us up a chess board we requested.

Stayed here overnight after a wedding party at the hotel. The reception staff were really helpful, allowed us to check in at 11:30-12:00 rather than wait for the normal 2pm as we had travelled quite a way for the wedding. The rooms are nice but the one i had could have been a little better. The wardrobe door wouldnt open... More

For an American who perhaps watches a lbit too much Masterpiece Theater, the chance to stay in a country manor was hard to resist, and the hotel and its staff made this a memorable three-night stay.
