“Fantastic hotel, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

If your looking for a relaxed break in Scotland I would definitely recommend, sitting right on the golf course, with fantastic views and great service. Will definitely go back. Food is great, swimming pool and sauna included. Also gives excellent value. We went for 2 nights b&b and was only £150 for a double room

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

We spent a lovely weekend here - 6 couples in all. We arrived and the check in process was quick and efficient. Room we were allocated was lovely. We enjoyed meals both evenings in the restaurant. Unfortunately, the common areas ie lounge, dining room etc were very cold, did not appear to be heated. We did ask both at reception and at the bar if heating could be boosted up a bit, but nothing happened. That is our only slight complaint, we had to sit in the dining room and lounge with jackets on.

Was there on business, got upgraded to a room overlooking the golf course. Which would have been well enjoyed had it not been dark when I arrived. Very nice steak in the bar with some equally lovely merlot to help me sleep easier. Room was as expected with a comfortable bed. I did set my smoke alarm off in the room from the shower which was hurried me along and get dressed. I did have fears the whole hotel would be standing outside because of me. Thankfully this didn't happen.

Overall nice experience and I will certainly go back again.

On our arrival we were allocated room 201 and stayed there the first night but the noise was awful it was a continual very loud humming noise thought it sounded like it could be a boiler room needless to say didnt get much sleep. In morning asked receptionist if we could be moved to another room and explaned why she seemed surprised (cant believe no one else has complained about this) but promptly re-allocated us to room 214 which was better and overlooking the sea. This is the fourth year we have been to this hotel in November (our anniversary) and have enjoyed our stays here and always found staff friendly and breakfast very good also love the spa. Agree with a lot of reviewers that hotel needs some updating. Would just like to mention if looking for an alternative to the hotel for evening meal on a Friday or Saturday night then go to the Caledonian Golf Club across the road the food is amazing and staff so friendly and welcoming. I & M Smith Stonehaven

Room Tip: Avoid room 201 continual very loud humming noise

We got a fantastic deal... B&b for £55! It was fantastic. We had a lovely view looking over the golf centre and the water. Our stay was very comfortable, but the decor is now looking tired and in need of an update!
