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.

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...
