Before I review the White Horse Inn, I need to put my trip in perspective in order to explain how much of a difference good people can make in life!! Having arrived from London, on a 4 hour delayed flight into Aberdeen, with my car rental place having closed (as it was 11.30pm), I discovered I had left my wallet... More

3 of us booked an overnight stay whilst bird-watching in the area. On arrival we received a very warm friendly welcome and the set up was explained clearly. The hotel is of plain appearance and the rooms were basic but comfortable and clean. We ate in the restaurant and the food was excellent. In the morning we also enjoyed an... More

Did not know what to expect when saw the outside of the building. But the inside was a delightful surprise, quite recently and modestly decorated. I had barbecued chicken wings to start which were the largest and most succulent I've had, in fact would have done as a main course. For the main course I had the Mushroom, Spinach &... More

A convenient place to stay. The rooms are in a separate building to the restaurant and reception meaning you might get wet walking between the two. The rooms are simply appointed but clean. Nothing special. In most parts of the UK this room would be much cheaper. Breakfast was very good.

Whilst the accommodation was clean and reasonably well appointed, the same could not be said of the food. I ordered gammon steak expecting the usual accompaniments of perhaps an egg or slice of pineapple and either veg or salad. What I was served was a steak with about eight potato wedges. Not so much as a pea pon the plate.... More

Having moved to the opposite side of Aberdeen, we hadn't been here for a meal in over 4 years and how things have changed. Yes, the decor is more current but, having been looking forward to the fantastic meals we enjoyed there previously, we were very disappointed in the quality and slowness of service. My partner asked for his potatoes... More
