“Consistently good”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

We often pop into the Northern hotel for a bite to eat and it is always, without exception, very good. The staff are friendly and efficient. The food is always very nice, but be warned the portions are very generous! It's good, honest, hearty fare, served timeously.
I was therefore taken aback by some recent unkind comments about the hotel and its staff. It's not the Ritz, it's not the Dorchester - nor does it pretend to be, it's a small hotel in a small town that offers good food at reasonable prices, and we are very lucky to have the Northern hotel in Brechin. We've never stayed there. so I couldn't comment on the rooms, but the restaurant and bar are very comfortable.

As a frequent user of both the Baillie restaurant and Hudson bar I am horrified to read previous bad reviews, I have had many family meals and memorable
nights out here, the staff have always been attentive and very kind. The service has never been at fault and 'the girls' work very hard to please their customers.
I believe sites such as trip advisor should give praise or constructive criticism for both future customers and management alike.
Therefore I would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment to family and friends.

We came to the hotel for a spot of tea then decided to go in to the bar connected to the hotel 'hudsons', it was a Saturday night and was about 9 pm as we walked in it was a great bar clean, tidy until we went for our drinks. I was greeted by the most disgraceful bar staff member she was on her own and was not smiling or making us feel very welcome at all I was shocked. As we were having our drinks she leaned against the bar with body language which seemed as though she didn't want to be there and was bored. As we left I asked a local who she was and if she was maybe in training to which they replied 'I'm sure she is the new bar supervisor' which I was confused the whole place was very good apart from her! And this is not the first bad review I have heard about her, such a shame the whole place let down by her!!!

Thank you for your kind comments with regard to our bar Hudsons. However, I was disappointed that the service was not welcoming and friendly. We will be taking to steps to ensure that this will not occur in the future.

Brief overnight stay in my wee hometown for a function. First time back in the Northern for many, many years.

Combines contemporary and traditional looks well. Friendly helpful staff with good local knowledge, nice room, grand breakfast.

Minor niggles - wetroom remained a bit wet everywhere after my shower, Room doors not self locking.

Would certainly go back.

.

Room Tip: might be a bit of traffic noise from rooms near the junction corner like mine

We had a warm welcome on arrival and were very happy with our room. The hotel is right in the centre of the town and was easy to find. We really enjoyed our dinner in the hotel's restaurant. The hotel is smartly decorated and the room was clean. Great value and we would definitely stay again.

A cold night outside. A warm welcoming entrance lobby with a fire place and Chesterfields.
Friendly staff.
Unfortunately the bedroom was cold and turning on the radiators had very little effect.
Restaurant unprepared for pre-advised dietary requirements so steak it had to be!
