Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This B&B exceeded my expectations. Location is perfect, view of the sea out my window was stunning, breakfast is excellent and golf nearby is world-class. My room was clean and comfortable. Zoe, Kayla and Steve are wonderful hosts, thank you for the first-class hospitality!

We had a 4 ball stay at Cruden Bay B&B 2nd week of Sept 2022 for a few nights. Ian is a great host and booked us for dinner at the club every night. The B&B is superb views of the course and the rooms are very comfortable (mine had a view of the course and ocean). I look forward to staying there on my next trip to Cruden Bay.....

I can’t say enough about the hospitality of this lovely find. The location is ideal and the facility is amazing. Across the street from golf…but Ian and Lorraine are the kindest and best hosts I’ve ever had. Thank you!

Wonderful B&B with incredible views over the Cruden Bay golf course and North Sea. The owners gave us some great local tips on what to see in the area and some fantastic walks. They took great care in looking out for their guests and had clearly made a lot of effort to ensure we had everything we needed. That they are affable is icing on the cake :)) Highly recommend staying here - we loved it.

We arrived relatively late on Thursday evening and Ian came and personally welcomed us. He made us feel so welcome and we were treated to some great stories. Our rooms were all exactly what we needed. Clean, comfortable and overlooking Cruden Bay getting us excited for what lay ahead of us. The views were stunning. The B&B served as a perfect base for us as we went up to play Fraserburgh on the first day and then had a very short walk or drive to Cruden Bay. Thanks again Ian for the hospitality.

We stayed overnight in Cruden Bay in September 2018, on our way south to St. Andrew's. What a fantastic location! The view to the golf course and coastline is jaw dropping. A gem! Ian welcomed us and couldn't have been nicer. He entertained us with tales of Cruden Bay and the local course. It felt like we were family. He directed us to the trail to Slain's Castle, a 20 minute walk to see the historic inspiration for Bram Stoker's "Dracula". Beautiful trail and coastline. He encouraged us to play the local course and we decided to change our plans and come back from St. Andrew's and play. Fantastic course! We enjoyed it more than the Old Course. Ian's wife, Lorraine prepared a great breakfast for us and was delightful to meet. Our group of four are now planning how we can return and stay longer. Gary, Al, Tye and John

We went to Cruden Bay to play some of the local golf courses. What a gem this bed and breakfast is! Ian and Loraine were the most amazing hosts. It is conveniently located across from the Cruden Bay Golf Club. The views are spectacular of both the golf course and water. The breakfast in the morning was excellent. When there are others staying here there is great conversation in the morning at breakfast. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Of all my travels, this is the only place I have ever stayed where I truly felt like I was staying with family. On my next return I would not even consider staying anywhere else. Just the best!!!! Thank you Ian and Loraine for a very memorable trip!

I stayed at Cruden Bay B&B in the summer of 2018 with a group of friends. It is a really nice location, looking out on the golf course. The owners Ian and Lorraine (and their adorable dog Bertie) could not have made us more at home. Nothing was too much trouble (they went out to buy my favourite spread at breakfast, Marmite!) and offered to upgrade me to a bigger room which was much appreciated. Lovely family atmosphere and very enjoyable.

Ian made our trip to Cruden Bay a memorable one. Friendly service and always willing to help us out with tips and recommendations. For instance the 15 percent discount on green fees by mentioning you are staying at his b&b. Breakfast is very good, with a good selection of cooked or continental options. The rooms were very comfortable and excellent views of the local golf course. Will be sure to come back again.
