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.

Just returned from a lovely mother’s day meal. From entering the hotel to leaving was so relaxing. We were requested to pre order our meal prior to arrival which is understandable since it was likely to be busy and it was all very well organised. Young lady came and asked for our drinks order and made us welcome. We were then asked to clarify our order and the food was promptly served. The portions were plentiful and nicely presented, and served on warm plates for a change which makes your meal all the more enjoyable. Function Room was well laid out and decoratively done. I would certainly recommend here to anyone who hasn’t been and thinking of trying it.Thank you to all the staff.

Stayed here with my partner for a night as a little weekend getaway for one night. Upon arrival we were promptly met at reception, checked in and shown to our room. The room was bright, spacious and very clean. We had booked evening dinner, bed and breakfast. The hotel has a lovely quiet beer garden which was nice and relaxing. To say dinner was fantastic is an understatement. Food was just spot on. Good choice on the menu, mostly traditional meals, but done very well. Breakfast was also fantastic. Very highly recommended.

Lunch in the bar, very good service and very good food at a reasonable price. Family lunch for five, tight space in the bar but friendly service and good menu made it a lovely experience. Will definitely be back.

Staff, room and dinner very nice. But be warned if you book B&B. But you won't get much sleep due to the seriously loud music coming from the pub. Went on until around 2am. So I lay in bed for 4hrs not getting to sleep. Breakfast wasn't great either. All in all, definitely not good value. Double the price of the Village in Aberden. So we thought we would treat ourselves. Very disappointing.

Poor attitude from staff(woman who claims she is in charge).You felt she picked on some of the locals. It was clear she had favourites. Other staff/customers even told us “that is just her usual” rude!
