      Nice Hotel...

      Breakfast not served early enough! Had to do without it even though it was paid for. Not served untill 8am; no good if your there on Business/work. We have to be on the job by 8am! (It was a weekday.) Most hotels & B&B's start at 7am...

      I was attenting my friends wedding on the 3rd november so only slept here for one night and had breakfast but Very friendly staff and was impressed to see our waiter at breakfast in a kilt. Would love to go back in the summer for a relaxing weekend :) xo

      My room was alright but my friends were in another room and it looked very dated.

      A great hotel in the town which takes dogs in the garden rooms. These are delightful, spacious and warm. The main hotel had a cosy lounge and bar with a great roaring fire to come back to in an evening. Sweet little bar with a good pint of Cairngorm Tradewinds ale. The breakfast room looks out over the golf course through the trees with red squirrels running around outside. Idyllic.

      Very nice friendly hotel

      The Booked.net web site states that this hotel is 23 miles from Aberdeen when it is actually 40 miles !!!!!

      We were well looked after, and really enjoyed the food. The quality of each of the items of our main courses was appreciated. We liked the outlook from the hotel.

      A minor detail, but despite having a Twinings box for tea bags and coffee sachets, there was no variety of tea, e.g. Earl Grey, peppermint. A small biscuit after a day in the hills would also be appreciated!

      Its authenticity and friendliness.

      Was not able to eat in the restaurant due to it being full – Maybe next time.

      The main hotel and surrounding gardens are beautiful, very polite staff. Annex bedroom and bathroom was very clean. Comfortable beds not to soft, slept very well.

      No wifi in the annex bedroom situated outside of the main hotel. Bathroom and bedroom decor tired and out of date. Very slippery in bath when having a shower Had to switch the heater off in the bathroom because it smelt. For the cost of the annex bedroom I didn't think it was value for money.

      Very friendly staff, who were very helpful. The Hotel was in a beautiful setting and was lovely and peaceful. The 2 meals we had at the Hotel were of a high standard and the breakfasts were excellent and a great start to the day !

      If I'm going to be ultra picky, then I will say that the Toilet in our room, didn't always flush properly!
