“Dont let the facade fool you!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

My company used an agency who booked this hotel for me at short notice, on pulling up in the car i was concerned that it was going to be quite dated and very basic...! All i can say was i had a complete change of heart as soon as the owner opened the door for me.
This hotel is kept imaculate by Drew and Carol (the owners) and their team, the rooms are large and very well appointed, the bed i had was very comfortable. The home made evening meal was fantastic.
Drew and Carol where very welcoming and great company at the evening meal.
I would highly recommend this hotel over the others i have stayed in in Peterhead any time.

i am using my fiances tripadvisor account to write this review as i do not have one, however if i had i would have probably written more.

Good location close to the centre of town. Parking is a bit hit or miss, there is an enclosed courtyard but can only take three or four cars. Rooms are very good, beds are comfy and warm. Breakfast is cooked to order.
No evening meals are served, but is only a 5 min walk from many restaurants and pubs.

Went to Peterhead for the first time to go for a funeral and sort out an estate.Made very welcome from day one.Great downstairs room next to the front door so we didn't disturb anyone when returning at night.Breakfast was great every morning with lots of choice.Everyone was very helpful giving us directions to all the places we had to visit.Car parking at the rear of the hotel,where we could leave the car and walk into town.We would recommend the hotel for any stay business or pleasure

Fantastic big room. Comfy bed. Free wifi not too bad. Noisy dining room beneath. Didn't like the dog poo on pavement by front gate. Quite a bit of traffic noise. Good breakfast. Not cheap in terms of price.

Stayed 4 days at the Clifton House Hotel Peterhead recently and was very pleased with the accommodation. Booked a single room which was en-suite and was very comfortable and a good size. Tea and coffee facilities was available plus a fridge which I thought was very helpful. The cooked breakfast was excellent and there was a good choice of cereal and yogurts. Only a five minute walk into town and parking was available round the back of the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone on holiday or on a business trip to Peterhead.

Room Tip: Hotel on 3 floors with a grand staircase so if mobility a problem ask for a lower floor.

Sandwiched between two churches this amazing hotel is in the process of refurb, the owner tells us! well so far they are doing an amazing job!
Easy to find and good on road parking, they do have off road but its rather cramped for bigger cars.
Lovely decor to the room, showed that little individual touches that make a hotel more than just a room to sleep in.
The bathroom was equally huge but with only a smallish shower, this was a negative, uber clean though!
The lovely breakfast was cooked fresh by the very pleasant "staff" member... nothing was too much trouble.

Although not the hotels fault/issue Peterhead is not the best town at the moment, needs a bit of revamp! however, when that happens this will be the place to stay!

p.s. over the road is a hotel called The Albert, which looked run down re decor but the little bar is amazing and they do some fab evening food!
