“Pleasant experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Went to The Buchan Braes for a family dinner recently. Troughout our time there we were well looked after by friendly efficient staff, and made to feel very welcome. The food was of a high standard well presented & well cooked. A special mention for my sweet, a candy pavlova, it was superb :-)
Would recommend Buchan Braes and I'm sure I will be back soon.

This 4star hotel is the converted Officers Mess at the now closed RAF Buchan in Boddam near Peterhead.

The staff were polite, very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious, finished to a very high standard, very clean & tidy.

The breakfast was very good with a buffet selection of Cereals, Friut, Cheeses etc and all the hot food cooked to order (you can see it being prepared) and served by a very nice waitress.

Hotel Wi-Fi is a bit hit and miss which is annoying when you are trying to work and the Car Parking is a bit remote at the rear of the Hotel.

Booked through HRS on-line and got a much better deal than the Hotel Web Page.

The location is partially in a mothballed Military base and an Industrial Estate, don't let that disuade you from visiting a great Hotel for very good value and great service.

Some lovely Costal Walks withing 5 minutes of the Hotel. I will certainly stay here again next time I am in the area.

We had a Christmas meal here in Dec 2012 and it was very enjoyable. Staff very efficient, food was delicious and a very eclectic menu which was a pleasant surprise. Perhaps a tad overpriced but portions were ample and desert was delicious.

We stayed here for a wedding, the staff were very friendly and we were able to check in and get ready for the day with plenty of time which was great. The meal was lovely and the day went past without a hitch, the breakfast was delicious and the room we had was very well equipt and decorated beautifully, if I was ever visiting the area again I would be sure to stay here.

This was my first visit to this hotel and I was very impressed by the general decor and layout. Reason for attending this time was for a social function with the Ythan Fiddlers. The evening dinner was excellent and the general atmosphere created by the staff and guests was first class. A very enjoyable ceilidh was enjoyed by all in one of the excellent function rooms. This is clearly a hotel that can offer good facilities for any number of functions. I would like to return and enjoy a stay at the hotel..
