Dome was beautiful, amazing atmosphere, definitely will come back. for the price food was below expectations - bland, lacking of taste. when we sat by the table, we were promised to get some bread, unfortunately received just butter. Other than that, service was great.

My wife and I stayed at Meldrum House two nights recently and it was amazing. The staff were terrific and the accommodations and food spectacular. We didn't stay in the main building but in the converted stables. The room was wonderful and very quite. The hotel is located on a golf course (which we didn't play) and about 30 min from the city of Aberdeen where we went for a day.

We decided to go to the Pineapple Grill & Seafood restaurant for our anniversary. What a mistake. The atmosphere if you were further into the restaurant would of been nicer but we were put near the door with the staff shouting and laughing which kind of ruined it for us. The starters weren’t that great. My husbands chowder was ok but the smoked halibut hadn’t seen a smokery at all, it was also completely tasteless. The portion size to price was a little shocking. The main of Chateaubriand was ordered to come medium but came rare. It was still cold and blue inside. We sent it back and it came back varying from medium (the ends) to medium rare. (still very bloody and uncooked in the middle) When you cook steak to a specific order you need to get it right, all the way through. That’s the difference between a cook and a chef. The strange toasted piece of bread was unedible and the accompanying sauces were also terrible. Almost like packet bisto. The chocolate fondant was also over done.. so too solid and too much cocoa made us cough. The food in all for the price was very disappointing indeed. Priced better and we would of maybe expected this.

After a long-awaited visit to Fyvie Castle, I asked about coffee and was directed here. Early evening on your own on a Saturday night can be an awkward experience, but I enjoyed coffee in the clearly very historical drawing room, setting me up for my drive home after much walking. The hotel was relaxed, friendly with kind, attentive, friendly staff. Clearly a very professional establishment. Tucked away in the country, in Old Meldrum, yet easily accessible from Inverurie and Aberdeen. How they treat a single person dropping in for a coffee is a measure of their hospitality prowess.

Had a recent dinner in one of the domes. Lovley setting,not sure how it would be if it’s raining though. Food was lovely although not an awful lot of it for the price you pay ..I suppose you’re paying for the experience. Good service. I Would recommend.

After 2 years of lockdowns and covid we decided to treat the family to a Christmas break and after looking at several options chose the package on offer from Meldrum House. From the minute we arrived to the minute we departed we were well looked after. The hotel is stunning with beautiful bars and restaurant areas. The room we stayed was on the 1st floor of the main house with plenty of room for a family of 4. With a decent size room and the quality of food on offer I don't think it will be too long before we return.

We stayed here for two marvellous nights on the occasion of our daughter’s wedding. The whole event was superbly organised by Kim and her team. The food for the wedding and the regular meals in the hotel were all of excellent quality and the service was fantastic and with a smile a chat as well

Amazing Dome experience with family. Food was impressive and staff were fab, such a lovely place for a celebration. Temperature can be adjusted up or down so perfect in the cold or heat! Kids menu worked well for a 2 and 5 year old. Will be back to try cocktails in the large dome.

We’ve stayed at Meldrum House on many occasions but I was severely disappointed by our latest experience. One thing that has irked me for a while is the fact that whenever I’ve phoned the hotel reception to ask or query something before arriving, the phone always rings out. Yet on our recent stay I found two girls manning the reception desk at all times. One day I phoned on 5 different occasions at varying times of the day and still no answer. It took 5 hours for someone to phone me back after leaving a message. The second thing is the Sunday menu/food. Having been a guest in the hotel, we looked at the menu at lunch time in the Cave Bar and thankfully decided that all the dishes were too heavy for what we wanted and instead wandered down to the clubhouse to eat. Thankfully we did because as we arrived for dinner in the Pineapple restaurant, we were presented with the exact same menu. My cauliflower bhajis were charred and tasted burnt. The roast dinner sharing board was also barely warm with the meat tasting very dry. It made me think that the food had clearly been prepared earlier and left to sit. Not what you expect for a dinner at all, regardless of whether it’s a Sunday or not. The only reason we never complained at the time was the fact that we received a free bottle of wine and the food was discounted due to my partner being a golf club member. At breakfast the next morning I waited 40 minutes to eat having been served the wrong order and then discovered one egg was over cooked and one was under cooked on my eggs royal so I ended up eating half. Normally the food is very good at Meldrum House but I just really didn’t enjoy our stay because of this this time. The standard of the rooms are always second to none and my partner loves being a golf member there with the clubhouse always serving good food with plenty of choice. However if the service and food in the hotel don’t improve, then I wouldn’t be rushing back to stay.

Dear Mairead_McLoughlin, Thank you for sharing your feedback from your recent stay at Meldrum House. I would like to offer my sincere apologies for not exceeding your high expectations from your previous stays at the property. The Sunday offering at the hotel has been in place now for some time and something that has been well received and very popular with our patrons. I have shared your disappointing feedback with our kitchen team and will certainly aim to make quick improvements. I am thrilled to hear you both enjoyed the clubhouse offering and I'll take pleasure sharing the feedback with the catering team. Best regards, Jordan Charles / General Manager Best regards, Jordan Charles / General Manager
