“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Stayed here on business for one night in January. Lovely reception area with welcoming wood burning stove.. Great food (fresh fish and chips evening meal and breakfast with haggis) and good range of beers well kept. Friendly people and good service. Would stay again without a doubt.

Wonderful hotel with clean, tastefully furnished accommodation, excellent staff and top quality catering. Couldn't imagine any better value in the Aberdeen area. Convenient for Aberdeen city yet in beautiful beach side setting of Cruden Bay. Try it - you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with four legged companions then the new rooms in the extension are ideal - un...

I had 4 nights at the Kilmarnock Arms Hotel. I had a really nice room (large) and the bed was extremely comforatable. I ate in the hotel on three occassions and enjoyed each of the dishes that I had from their varied menu. The staff are extremely helpful. All in a great stay in a nice hotel.

I do not have one bad thing to say about this b&b! Clean rooms, friendly staff, tasty breakfast, delicious restaurant, nice bar, and a fair price! A friend and I stayed here for 2 night in October 2010 and wished our stay was longer. The fish and chips at the restaurant were the best I have ever had. We just loved our stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to the area!

It is rare to find a hotel which offers such a warm welcome and superb service , reception is a wonderful homely meeting place with log fires and candles, bedrooms are very clean and comfortable ,ours even had a patio area with seating outside. The food throughout our stay was exceptional from a bowl of soup to lobster and fillet steak, the homemade cakes were a real treat. I cant recommend this hotel highly enough and thank the proprieters Martin and Lucy for a wonderful weekend.

I have just had the most marvellous long weekend at the Kilmarnock Arms with such a warm welcome from the owners Lucy & Martin. My every need was catered for including special dietry requirements which were provided without me being made to feel a nuisance in any way, not a sevice I find everywhere! The days were cold,crisp & bright, the scenery beautiful and the hotel so warm & comfortable to come back to, it was a pleasure from beginning to end. My sincere thanks to all at the "Killie", as they like to call it, for all the care and attention given.
