“One night stay.”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Smallish rooms but fully equipped and pleasantly quiet - comfortable bed! Good menu available in both restaurant and bar. As its also popular with the locals be prepared to book a table, particularly Sat night and Sunday lunch. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Stayed here for 5 nights and it's a great hotel in a bleak corner of Scotland. Rooms are superbly comfy and quiet. The showers are excellent and modern.
Meals are but pricey but it's a long walk in to town!

Visited here with my family over the Christmas period. Didn't stay there but hung out in the lounge area for a couple of hours. It is nicely and comfortably furnished. We spent some time catching up on email etc using their free Wifi.

We had a meal in the lounge with some coffee and drinks. The whole family enjoyed their meal but it was slightly expensive. But comparable to other hotel settings I suppose.

It is off the beaten track a little. But not sure if this contributed to it being quiet or just the fact it was over Christmas.

In short probably a little to expensive to eat out as a family unless it was a special occasion but a great place for that informal business meeting.

Great hotel, and not the impression you get from the outside but how looks can be deceiving. The check in was as smooth as can be and the lady at reception had a great smile and was so pleased to help. The rooms were a delight and everything one would expect from a four star hotel, if not more. A very good nights rest, quiet and peaceful. Bar staff very friendly and efficient. The breakfast has to be one of the best in Scotland everything cooked to order and of the best quality, I look forward to my next visit. Please note that this hotel is best suited to the more discerning customer, fine dining a la carte menu etc and looking for a quiet restful retreat.
I have also stayed in their sister hotel the Palace in Peterhead. The palace, much more the party style hotel and suited to the young couple looking for music entertainment and in close reach of all the towns facilities.

Stayed here with my wife for a birthday celebration. This hotel is a former RAF Officer's mess & has been refurbished to a very high quality. The food is of an excellent standard although the price & that of the drink is high. The staff are excellent & very proffessional.
The rooms are well decorated & there is plenty of room to move around. They are also well equipped.

Stayed here on business an was overall impressed.
Don't be fooled by the approach to the hotel (it appears to be in an old army barracks) it's actually pretty good.

Decent sized rooms, nice modern decor and well priced.

Drink at the bar were expensive but the service was quick and friendly

We ate at the restaurant which had good local produce and a decent wine list but was expensive for what you got.

Overall good experience, good rooms but restaurant an bar a bit pricey
