We (two couples) arrived looking for a snack late afternoon. Could we have coffee for 4, scone for 1, and shortbread for 3 please? No problem. We were served coffee within minutes - while scones and shortbread were baked! They were delicious - with the scones served with jam

We were hoping for a relaxing night away from children and stress etc. Arrival was fine but there was a wedding on. Our dinner was ruined by drunken classless idiots shouting and swearing about 6 metres away from our table, so we went back to our room. The walls were literally

Superb afternoon tea, sandwiches were good, sausage rolls were outstanding, great selection of cakes, lemon posset, scones fresh, booked through ITISON, so was very good value. Spoiled a little bit by a senior member of staff who clearly has to brush up on her customer

I have loved Pittodrie since I was a young girl, I even got married here which is why I am so saddened about how poor it is now. We came for lunch- even booking we felt unwelcome, with a woman verging on rude who took my booking. Didn’t bode well! It started badly. The empty,

Dear CherryRed, I have spoken to the whole team regarding your recent visit which you have titled "faded glory" and would like to point out that on the day when you raised your concerns, three senior members of staff apologised and discussed your concerns to try and resolve the situation. Just to clarify our Risotto is made using Arborio rice which is a grain and we only use wild fresh mushrooms including chestnut, enoki and oyster in our risotto's. Sunday lunch has proven to be very popular and we have received very good feedback on this from our guests since it was launched in January and has gone from strength to strength. Again, I would like to point out that it is a sad day when things can not be concluded on the day, instead of using trip advisor as a platform to offload emotional memories. We are sorry to hear that we did not live up to your exceptions on this occasion but would love the opportunity to welcome you back at some point in the near future. I you could contact me direct at the hotel, I will book you in personally: 01467 622 437 Kind Regards Kenny McMillan

Hi, Can anyone tell me the rough price for afternoon tea here? Thanks
Think it’s £20 per person if it’s a weekend

How close is this to Fraser Castle?
Dear ccn1959, Thank you for your enquiry, we are about 8 miles from Fraser Castle and we are also 16 miles from Fyvie Castle, both are very reachable and highly recommended. We are to soon have an offer go live on the macdonald hotel website with an overnight stay to include complimentary entrance into either Fraser or Fyvie Castle for 2 people and also afternoon tea at Pittodrie House, this should be live online by the weekend. If we can help you further please don't hesitate to contact me personally Best Regards Adam (General Manager)

"Room 2 - the Keith! Great fluffy robe and coffee machine."
"Avoid the old part of the building"
