On first glance, this is a motel stuck in the sixties, but don't be deceived, everything works, the staff are efficient and friendly, the food is good and the gym facilities are excellent. It could do with a decorative revamp, but Meg Richardson would be proud.

We booked as a last minute night away and the price wasn't too bad. My expectations were low having been here before but staff were friendly and the room appeared much nicer than I had remembered. Our room looked like it had been decorated recently and the bathroom was very clean and equipped with a whirlpool bath. What let the...

We stayed at this hotel on a very cold and wintery evening in peterhead. To be fair the public areas and rooms were pleasantly warm which was very welcome given the conditions outside . Yes this place is a bit dated but the room was clean and comfortable. This hotel was once the place to stay in Peterhead and areas...

My wife & I stayed there over the weekend to attend a wedding & reception being hosted at the Waterside. The drive up to the hotel is a bit bad with a lot of pot holes which doesn't create a good first impression. However on check in we found the staff to be extremely friendly & helpful. Our room was...

I read a few reviews before arriving to the Waterside and was a little concerned in what I would be going to. Upon arrival yes the entrance access road has a few pot holes. Nothing that would warrant me to use as a bad review. When checking in the staff were really pleasant and very helpful. The rooms were comfortable...

Stayed here for a night on business, The place is clean and tidy and very good value for a 3*. The food is very good and they have a games rooms to keep us occupied although I'm awful at pool. Overall I'd recommend this a stay as it was very cheap for what is usually an expensive area.
