This is a review for restaurant only. The upstairs level restaurant over looks rear car park and a nice view of the sea. We have frequented this establishment over the years, but it has changed owner since we were last there and the decor is still the same and is now a little dated.We had booked a table at the...

This is an old inn, with a smugglers cove and harbour nearby. There is a large bar and restaurant, which are popular with the locals, so some noise can be expected until late evening , though I did not notice it much. The bar retains its old character and décor (including old carpets), but upstairs the 'cabins' have been completely... More

Stayed for one night whilst on business in the area. After a long drive I was warmly welcomed and shown straight to my room which had a glorious view of the North Sea. Wonderful meal with excellent service. Slept well in a comfortable bed and thoroughly enjoyed the cooked breakfast. Would not hesitate to stay again when in the area.

I feel it is very worthwhile giving positive feedback when you have a good experience at a restaurant. I have enjoyed several meals here and I can honestly say I've never been disappointed. The decor is not very modern but every time I go it is very busy so that is the main thing

Stayed overnight in twin room with a shared bathroom. I was welcomed on arrival and although I arrived before the check in time, I was able to go to my room to freshen up and leave my bags. Staff were friendly and helpful and I felt very at home. Great sleep in a comfy bed and lovely walk to the... More

Wow. Just reflecting on a fantastic night at a private function last night in the Cove Bay hotel. Guy and his staff couldn't have done any more for us. The service was top notch and the food was excellent. You really can't get better value for money in Aberdeen. Everyone in the party commented on the fantastic service and the... More

This is a review of the restaurant only. I am pretty confused about previous reviewers describing the food as 'awesome' and 'amazing' as, in my experience, it was nothing of the sort. I can only assume that previous reviewers don't get out much. The food was OK, in as much as it was edible and filled you up but otherwise,... More

We got two rooms; a loft with twin beds for the kids, and our queen room, right below them. The problem: we were directly above the pub, and it was Saturday night. We were also above the front door, where the pub patrons stood all night, smoking, drinking, and talking just below our window. Even though we slept with the... More
