Stayed in the single room which was cosy and nicely decorated. I really like the wood paneling. The bed was comfortable and the room had a lot of outlets which was handy. The ensuite bathroom was a bit on the small side but the shower worked very well. Breakfast was included and it was delicious. There was also a nice shared lounge space. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
My first time to Scotland and I stayed at the Masons Arms Hotel, the ladies running the bar were so nice and tolerated all my random questions about the culture and area. Would highly recommend for anyone passing through the Fraserburgh/Rosehearty area.
We stayed here at the end of November, so the restaurant was closed. The bar, however was still open. We had a great time at the bar with staff. We had to different bartenders - one before dinner and one after dinner. They were both great. The couple of locals there were very chatty as well. The room was small by US standards, but sufficient. The wind was horrible and the small bathroom window rattled some. The breakfast was basic. We would stay here again.
One night stay for a night oot in the Broach, very friendly staff - helpful, phoned taxi for us - room very clean, shower room was very clean, but shower couldn't get the right temperature - tea making in room, a winner for me - Good sleep - nice breakfast, although cooked breakfast extra, but what do you expect for £60.00 per couple - but all in all a very good stay - and will be back for another night oot.
There is no separate listing for Rosehearty golf course which is over the road from the hotel. The rating above is for the course. The Mason's Arms acts as the clubhouse most of the time and this is where you pay the green fee (£10/15) and collect the scorecard. The pub also provides the hospitality at lunch time and early evening. The course looks easier than it plays. The course has 5 x par-3 and 4 x par-4 holes played twice in the full round, but they all require careful positioning and straight shots. The tee markers are old, early 20th century and now overgrown with moss. Unlike other courses, they have not been replaced as holes were changed, merely reused. The club would appreciate any advice on how to clean them. The Mason's Arms Hotel itself is an old inn, with refurbished bedrooms and modern bathrooms. The character of the bar is largely unaltered and has a snooker table. There is a residents kitchenette where you can make tea or toast any time of day or night. There is also a separate restaurant which you have to book. The day staff are very helpful and go out or their way to provide information, but overnight the premises are unmanned. Note the contiguous rooms are affected by the sound system in the bar which has a 1am licence.…
