Held my whole wedding here at the management of Jason. The pre-planning of the entire function was brilliant, and I felt that Jason knew 100% what he was doing and felt fully confident in letting him run the show (I was not let down!!). The day itself went absolutely perfect - drinks were flowing, the food beautifully cooked and the... More

We held my Mother's 80th birthday here and I have nothing but praise for the hotel and the staff. Nothing was too much trouble for Tony, Jason and indeed the rest of the staff. Rooms were brilliant and well equipped with everything that the traveller may need. Breakfast was also excellent with an expansive choice - I particularly enjoyed the... More

4 of us for a meeting over lunch and the Buchan Braes was superb. We were seated in the bar area and offered drinks whilst our Oder was taken. The bar is a nicely decorated and comfortable space that is large enough to offer privacy but not so big as to be impersonal. Food arrived in due course, the wait... More

A bar supper at the Buchan Braes is delightful but they have limited seating for eating. This is not good as the main restaurant does not open till 6pm. We were lucky to arrive just after 5pm and got one of the few tables available in the bar. Having said that the food was fantastic and the small menu has... More

There isn't much to see in Peterhead. I go there often on business and its your average industrial town. This hotel though, is wonderful jewel. Modern and has absolutely delicious food in the restaurant. The rooms are spacious, and comfy and always clean. Have stayed here about half a dozen times and no bad experiences yet.

The Buchan Braes Hotel is the best hotel I've stayed at in a long time. The food is above par and the rooms delightful. Don't miss the delicious breakfast - the full Scottish breakfast is to die for. The prices are very reasonable too. Worth every penny. The surrounding scenery is beautiful and the beach is lovely. Peterhead itself is... More

Hotel is clean and rooms spacious. Wifi is fine in public area but non existent in bedrooms which is really annoying. Bar menu food is good but restaurant food is expensive for what you get. Staff are nice though breakfast staff could do with smiling now and again. Room decor is bit bizarre with crushed velvet headboard and chairs but... More
