They have a wonderful staff who went out of the way to accommodate our group of 4 golfers. We all had large rooms and we all loved the breakfast. It was easy to find and close to the Cruden Bay Golf Club. I cannot say enough good things about the staff and the beautiful rooms.

Just finished a three day stay at the Kilmarnock Arms with 7 friends. The service and attentiveness of the staff was exceptional. As a frequent business traveler, I've visited many world class hotels and I would match the experience here against the best of them. Very charming country hotel with great character. Its a great small town place to stay.

We spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel. Everything was excellent - very friendly staff, superb food, beautiful room and close to a stunning beach. They coped very well with my food allergies and the log burner and sofas in the hotel entrance make for a very cosy retreat, especially after dinner.

Usually quite quiet and food is good. Dogs are aloud in the pub. The rooms and food are a bit to expensive, but cruden bay is gorgeous, give it a google. Love the old photos and beam stoker entry on walls

The hotel has onsite parking although a little tight. The reception area has a warm welcoming feel to it, with comfortable seating and a roaring log burner that is on all day. A member of staff quickly and efficiently booked us in, with a pre-printed form, no cards to fill in. Our room appeared to have been refurbished quite recently....

Can't beat the killie for lunch on a winters day, in front of the fire, out on your bike or after a walk to Slains castle. I scrapped in at 2 o'clock before kitchens closed and staff very accommodating. Not too many jokes about my ridiculous cycling garb and need for iPhone charger. Only complaint I ever have is not...

Myself and my husband had a starter and a main course each and everything was beautiful. My main course, halloumi skewers, was possibly the nicest vegetarian meal I have ever eaten. Please keep it on the menu! Great service also, lovely waitresses.
