Had a family room for three. The room was large and well appointed with a large bathroom. Everything was fresh and clean. The staff were terrific - friendly and smiling. My only grump is that when we ate in the bar (not the dining room) my roast beef was overdone. Location is good in the centre of Ellon with a...

I stayed here for two nights with a large group. From the friendly man at reception to the staff in the restaurant, I could find no fault.Nothing was any trouble and everything was served with a smile. The rooms were very comfortable and if I had to find a fault...the room was very warm. This is not the fault of...

+ free car park + free wi-fi + refurbished room + table in the room + town centre location + very comfortable bed - a noise from downstairs pub - window faced at the roundabout corner - no lift - small bathroom - too small room for 2 people - the food needs improvment in the restaurant

Been here a number of times now and have never been disappointed. Tonight was no exception. Great food and the staff are friendly, attentive and professional. We had a fussy eater in our party but it wasn't an issue as there is plenty on the menu to choose from.

Nothing good to say about this hotel. would never stay here again. Dated and dark rooms and corridors. Window in the room wouldn't open, Bath towels the size of post stamp. no soap in the bathroom.. On top of that, noise from the bar and fighting in the early hours meant the worse nights sleep ever.... Next time i'll stay...

Booked table for family high tea and we were not disappointed at all. There were plenty of choice on the high tea menu and kids offered kids menu. Our older child got a half portion of high tea menu. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed meals, toast and our selection of bite sized cakes and lovely warm scones. It was very busy so...

We recently found ourselves in Ellon at 9am on a Saturday and could not find anywhere (well we sat in 2 cafes and were ignored both times by the waiting staff who were too busy yapping....) to have breakfast. We asked a passer by who recommended The Buchan Hotel. The food was lovely, served quickly and hot, although quiet expensive...
