Decided to book a last minute deal for the weekend having stayed here previously a few times over the years. Impressive location and building with stunning grounds. A lovely warm welcome from the reception. It was a cold weekend and the fire was roaring all weekend. The food was great with a varied menu filled with local produce and the... More

Our 1 night stay at the Pittodrie House Hotel was amazing from start to finish. Found the hotel no problem using google maps. Parked our car onsite and headed to reception to check in.

Booked for our wedding anniversary and delighted with our upgrade to a feature room, the atmospheric Turret. Dinner was equally delightful, a complimentary liquor and chocolates was the prefect way to end a special day, Breakfast was also excellent. Particular mention to the friendly hotel staff, in particular Levante from Budapest, a very charming young gentleman, with excellent English, who... More

I stayed at this hotel for work. When I arrived the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was a good size, immaculate and very well appointed . Due the remote location of the hotel you really have to eat at the hotel. I booked in for a bar meal but when I got there the bar menu... More

After being given this as a gift I was looking forward to experiencing a wonderful afternoon with a friend on such a dismal day. On entering the hotel there were 2 people situated at the reception and neither of them greeted us or asked if they could help. We proceeded into the drawing room on the left and assumed this...

Dear Moira G First of all I feel I should apologise. This is in no way the experience we are looking to give our guests, and I can assure you nowhere near the usual feedback we get. I am also disappointed that you did not find a member of my team to speak to, so we could have corrected some... More

My wife and I spent a few days at Pittodrie House over Christmas and were delighted by the warmth of the welcome received and the personal attention to our comfort throughout our stay. The entire team appeared to be on a personal mission to ensure that we enjoyed a memorable Christmas. They succeeded.

We were a very disappointed party of 9 booked for Xmas Lunch in The Ballroom. We found the service and standard of the food at this popular, countryside venue to be very poor value for money. We were seated, still wearing our coats due to the chill in the dining room. My mother, aged 88, had to be wrapped in... More

The Restaurant serves a more fine dining experience whilst we organise the less formal service type carvery in the Ballroom. This service style is chosen in... More

Macdonald hotels never fail to disappoint but this one is exceptional. Staff are so attentive and helpful, bedroom spacious and full of character , atmosphere of the house just stunning.....only issue was lack of vegetarian choices on snug bar menu and immediately they offered the chef to do a pasta dish or risotto.....the fish and chips was a delightful plate...

We attended an evening wedding invitation at the Pittodrie house hotel,an enjoyable evening was had. One thing to keep in mind at the winter time of year is to find out exactly where the function is in the hotel.
