Having lived not far from Maryculter for a year or so before becoming engaged I was always intrigued to go see it, so when the time came ot start looking at wedding venues Maryculter was high on our list. With the river running through the grounds and the gorgeous open fires, it didn't take us long to decide that Maryculter was the place for us. We booked the venue there and then!

Maryculter prices were much more reasonable than some of the other Aberdeenshire venues we visited and the backdrop for photos was amazing. From the second we booked to even after our wedding day Marculter have been brilliant in their service. Vilmos on reception has always welcomed us and Bev and Margaret helped us with every detail of our wedding!!

The day went perfectly, everything ran to the correct timings and smoothly, and our meal was amazing. I couldnt recommend Maryculter highly enough for a wedding venue.

If anyone was to ask for wedding venues in Aberdeenshire, I wouldnt think twice about recommending Maryculter. We had the most perfect day!

We had our wedding at the Maryculter House Hotel a couple of weeks ago.
We chose this venue initially as we found the prices to be much more reasonable than other similar hotels in the area.
Right from booking our wedding, through to the day after, we received great service. Staff who we were dealing with were always more than happy to help and advise us. In particular we found the conference team to be very professional and helpful. We had several encounters with reception staff, who were always happy to help us too. On the day of our wedding, Ed ensured that everything went perfectly and we didn't have to worry about a thing. In fact he was available to assist us in the week leading up to the wedding, on the day itself, and the day after. We were very surprised to see him there in the Sunday as he had been working until at least 3am on the Saturday night. We were very impressed with how hard he worked to ensure the service provided was excellent.

Several guests at our wedding mentioned how delicious their meals were, including those with dietary requirements. Many also mentioned how efficient, friendly and helpful the staff were.
The rooms we have seen and the one we stayed in were lovely, very tactfully decorated and clean.
Breakfast was exactly what we needed after the night before!

We definitely intent to return here in the future as we enjoyed it so much.

Thank you to the Maryculter House Hotel for making our 'Big Day' so perfect.

We had our wedding at MHH last month and had a fantastic day. In the lead up, Beverley was on hand for any queries and on the day of the wedding itself Ed was a great help in talking us through how the day was going to run and generally keeping us at ease. The meal was tasty and above what you would normally expect for a wedding meal for 100 guests (comments we received from various guests) and at no point did we feel we had to compromise anything about the day.

We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Maryculter to anyone looking to book their big day in the Aberdeen area

Dear Matt,

Very many thanks indeed for taking the time to post a review of your time with us at Maryculter House Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting your big day and doing our best to make sure it was special for you, so to hear that our efforts paid off really is great!

While we like to think we've become very good at 'doing' weddings - hosting around a hundred or more each year - we're always careful to remember that each one is different, and special for the individual guests.

So again, thanks for taking the time to post your thoughts and, on behalf of the whole team here, we wish yourself and your new wife a happy and prospeous life together.

Best wishes,

Ed Tumath
Deputy General Manager

A twin room booked for 2 nights at rate £125 per night B&B. Beds had no valance and divan was soiled and dirty, walk-in shower had black mould around base of tiles and Sink Basin chain hanging loose. Tired decoration in room with wallpaper pealing and damaged and there was no hotel information pack in the room and the fire escape instruction were missing. At breakfast we found the buffet food cold and there was no information of any other choice, if you do not rise early with the Aberdeen oil guests you get what is left. Final insult was at check out we were presented with a bill including drinks and evening food none if which we had as we were visiting our son and family in Aberdeen and ate with them. Had we been staying longer we would have checked out and found other accommodation.

Room Tip: Impossible unless you see the rooms first

Hi Peter,

Many thanks indeed for taking the time to review your stay at Maryculter House Hotel. I was deeply disappointed to learn that you didn't enjoy your experience with us and will set about trying to fix the issues you've raised.

There is no excuse for the failings you mentioned in terms of cleanliness, but there are of course solutions, and I have already put measures in place to ensure these problem don't arise again.

In terms of the missing guest information folder, there was a sign displayed at reception for the week of your stay advising guests that these folders were being updated and would be replaced shortly, and that reception would be happy to assist with any information requests you may have had.

Taking the folders out of the rooms was, it was decided, the most efficient means of updating the information contained within.

In terms of fire information, this information was displayed on the back of the guest room door. My apologies that it was not more visible to you.

I do hope you'll give us another opportunity to demonstrate our usual high level of service and put right what went wrong. I invite you to contact me directly at the hotel should you choose to stay again.

Best wishes,

Ed Tumath
Deputy General Manager

Went to a wedding here and the whole day and night went well and with good service! Food was yummy and the staff were good. The only faults was the price of the drinks that stung the bank balance. Would go back
