Lovely small hotel in Stonehaven Harbour. We had a family, modern and sea facing room. The bathroom, with shower, and heated towel rail, came with excellent bathroom goodies. Breakfast was plentiful and very good. We had lunch in the hotel and it was very tasty indeed. The staff were very hard working and very helpful. If we could have the... More

the location was great, near the harbour (10 min by foot). The room was very clean and restructured. The service and the breakfast was typical and very good. The owners were very kind and friendly, they gave us a lot of informations about our trip.

Room was very little as the bathroom but clean. However the view was on a roof. Considering how much I've payed i could stay better. The service was good but nothing special. In the other hand the location was awesome

The hotel is on a very scenic position, they serve good breakfast and clean room. Moreover, the inside restaurant is quite good, too. But we found bathroom with the heating on (in August) and it was not possible to switch it off, so it was terribly hot.

Although the Inn is very old the rooms are modern, clean and well appointed. The location was great, right at the harbour. We were there in the middle of the tourist season so parking can be difficult during the day when there are many day visitors. The food was typical small country hotel style; the breakfast was generous. The staff... More

The location was perfect just in the harbor and the pub atmosphere was great, but our room had a view over garbage location, which was sad. I was also a bit dissapointed about food at dinner (I had higher expectations regarding the excellent reviews), but the breakfast was great.

Fantastic harbour location and wonderful views, food and service. Staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. A very warm and well stocked bar. Food delicious, both in the restaurant and the bar. Can't wait to go back!

Not really sure if I would describe here as a hotel. Okay for a night or two, nicely situated right at the harbour with lovely views. Had an evening meal in restaurant which was perfectly acceptable, not so keen on breakfast. The major drawback was the lack of air conditioning although they did supply a fan which didn't really make... More
