My wife and I were visiting family in Dyce and we wanted to repay their hospitality for looking after us during our stay and they nominated the Buchan Hotel for dinner. The young staff were efficient, friendly and looked after all our needs. The range on the menu was wide ranging and well priced. The food also was served in... More

Stayed two nights to attend a funeral - terrible customer service. Hotel seemed pretty clueless when I phoned up to book especially about the price when I asked for a rate without breakfast. First night was fine but second night the music was pounding from the bar. When I checked out they only charged me one night and then we're... More

Despite reading negative reviews we decided to have supper at the Buchan hotel tonight. I was a weekend cook there approximately 40 years ago and it never had bad comments then. 3 of us arrived at 6pm with no booking but that was no problem as it was quiet then but filled up soon after we were in. Beef curry... More

Walked in for lunch and ordered steak pie which was very tasty. Lovely puff pastry served with roast potatoes and veg. How nice to eat real food - not a microwave meal as is all too common these days. Service was really fast and staff attentive. Will definitely visit again very soon. All the other customers seemed to be enjoying... More

Visited midweek for a family lunch, very disappointed. Overpriced for what tasted like cheap, reheated food. Sausages tasteless, caesar salad served with breaded chicken similar to a kids 'happy' meal and salad straight from a bag! Won't be eating here again!

Did not stay here but tried their dining and have to say it's one of the best meals I've had in a while. I first thought it was quite a posh, fancy like place that would serve over expensive portions that wouldn't even feed a 2 year old but I was much mistaken and received large portions of food which...

Went there for a birthday celebration meal with family and found it to be a very good meal and incredibly nice decor. We were presented with an evening meal menu, high tea menu and also a festive menu. I might be picky here, but that was too much choice. The food was hot and well presented as well as being... More

Just had to try Ellon's newest eatery at the Buchan Hotel. The speciality of the new facility is tappas. It was fine, but pretty basic. Lacked ambience. Food was good, but left a little disappointed, especially as the name of the new restaurant was never explained to my girl friend and myself. Needs a good mine host to attract customers.

Went for meal. From offset was wrong. Smokers standing right outside the hotel door, surly there have a smoking area for them. In the hotel we were seated quickly, at the back of what reminded me of a typical cafe. Have been to nicer garden centres. Waiter informed us is the wrong soup. We had to ask someone to come...
