From the friendly man at reception to the staff in the restaurant, I could find no fault.Nothing was any trouble and everything was served with a smile. The rooms were very comfortable and if I had to find a fault...the room was very warm. This is not the fault of... More

+ free car park + free wi-fi + refurbished room + table in the room + town centre location + very comfortable bed - a noise from downstairs pub - window faced at the roundabout corner - no lift - small bathroom - too small room for 2 people - the food needs improvment in the restaurant

Been here a number of times now and have never been disappointed. Tonight was no exception. Great food and the staff are friendly, attentive and professional. We had a fussy eater in our party but it wasn't an issue as there is plenty on the menu to choose from.

Nothing good to say about this hotel. would never stay here again. Dated and dark rooms and corridors. Window in the room wouldn't open, Bath towels the size of post stamp. no soap in the bathroom.. On top of that, noise from the bar and fighting in the early hours meant the worse nights sleep ever.... Next time i'll stay... More

Booked table for family high tea and we were not disappointed at all. There were plenty of choice on the high tea menu and kids offered kids menu. Our older child got a half portion of high tea menu. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed meals, toast and our selection of bite sized cakes and lovely warm scones. It was very busy so... More

We recently found ourselves in Ellon at 9am on a Saturday and could not find anywhere (well we sat in 2 cafes and were ignored both times by the waiting staff who were too busy yapping....) to have breakfast. We asked a passer by who recommended The Buchan Hotel. The food was lovely, served quickly and hot, although quiet expensive... More

We chose the Sunday carvery with a starter. The starter was cheese and bacon loaded potato skins which was well presented and very tasty. The carvery was excellent and we can certainly recommend. The staff were friendly and attentive great!

The hotel is old but well renovated in places. The biggest issue is the amount of road noise due to the busy road on two sides and the constant shouting in the street from drunk people at the weekend. We were not able to fall asleep until 2am! In summary there are nicer hotels for the money in this area.
