Came here for one nights stay as passing through Aberdeen. We had 3 rooms as there was a few of us. I was in the smallest room which was okay. Pretty basic: small kettle, a couple of towels etc. The curtain in our room wasn't very good for the window so we were woken up quite early by the sunlight!...

I go to the restaurant regularly with my partner and or friends for food and wine, the food is lush, especially the steak and all the trimmings, everything tastes fresh and well made, as always the staff are fantastic and usually can't do enough for you. I like to sit at a window seat as it looks out over the...

The food is excellent (if you want good food) -- good parking spaces but is in a hotel and feels a bit outdated-- but total experience was very good because of the food. We had the cock a leek Scottish soup, fresh fish and chips, chicken haggis and some black pudding fritters -- all were excellent!

Upon arrival at the hotel, there a minimum of a welcome feeling, it seems all the staff were busy with Valentine meals, I was impressed, I was asked if I wanted a breakfast and agreed to pay the addition £9.95! The hotel was average, but whoever was in the room above me was walking around in their working boots, as...

Food as usual was to a good standard. However, we were initially given a poor table when they clearly were not busy. They did move us on request though. We were also charge for the wrong dish and overcharged for the kids meal. Would still go back but just watch the bill.

Big group of us for dinner. Attentive service and good food. Steak pie, fish and chips... it's not haute cuisine but good quality. We'll be back. Lovely view of the sea in the daylight but obviously more limited in the winter.
