“excellent in every respect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2011

We had our wedding reception here in early July and could not recommend it highly enough. We live in London but the dedicated events staff made planning the event hassle-free. On the day itself, we were fortunate to have the services of Duncan as maitre d' / master of ceremonies - he was charming and solicitous and really allowed us to enjoy ourselves in the knowledge that everything was being taken care of. The wedding breakfast itself and the waiting service in general were superb. Finally, we had booked a number of superior rooms for the wedding party and they were extremely spacious, well-appointed and had spotless new bathrooms. If I had one minor quibble, it would be that we had booked the library for private dining for a party of ten the evening before and, while the food was delicious, the service was extremely slow and not up to the hotel's usual standards. However, apart from that, Pittodrie House really exceeded my expectations and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone seeking a first-class venue for a wedding in Aberdeenshire.

We recently stayed at the hotel for our 1st wedding anniversary (we were actually married there last year). As usual, the hotel did not fail to meet our high expectations. Upon arrival we were automatically upgraded to the tower room where there was fresh fruit and chocolates to greet us! The front of house/bar staff/waiting staff couldn't do enough for us and the food was of a very high standard! Overall an excellent stay!

Average in terms of value for money I think. When we visited the drive up to the hotel was closed for repairs so we had to drive a fairly poor signposted alternative. Rooms not very spacious and a long walk to reception/dinning. Food was very nice. Had to pay for the internet which in this day and age was very poor. Overall nice but expected a bit more.

We recently held our wedding reception at Pittodrie House Hotel and I cannot thank the staff enough for such a fantastic and flawless day! The hotel itself is beautiful, with stunning grounds and amazing views - it speaks for itself really! But it's the staff that make this place something extra special!

The staff are very professional and will do anything for you! As soon as you arrive you a met by a friendly face at the hotel reception - and the excellent service just continues from there!

As for the food - amazing! All 70 fillet steaks were delivered to the tables cooked to perfection (medium/rare!) - which is quite some achievemnet for such a large group!

I highly recommend a visit!!!! :-)
