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.

We were there during the Haal festival and the restaurant was very efficiently run and the food was great.

We stayed one night in the Portsoy Hotel. Portsoy is a seacoast town currently noted as the set for the beginning of the Peaky Blinders series. We were there researching family ties. The Station Hotel is a full service hotel with rooms, eating areas and...banquet room(s). Our room was adequate overlooking the street which was not too busy. In the morning we found dripping from the bathroom ceiling from a leak on an upper floor which the staff promised to address but we were already checked out. The restaurant was unremarkable but adequate.More

The staff were very friendly, and the service very good. We actually went twice. The first time we both had the fish and chips, which was excellent - crispy light batter and the freshest fish straight out of the north sea. When we went back...the second time, my wife had fish and chips again, but the batter was much thicker, and somewhat stodgy between the outside and the fish itself. I had the steak pie, and for the money it was very disappointing - the portion of pie was quite small and the filling was quite mean.More

On the only day when it rained during our camping visit we headed to the Station Hotel. In spite of staying in the village many times during the last couple of Covid years, this was the first time we visited - we wish we had...discovered it on early trips. Staff were friendly, nice little pub with a games room beside the restaurant with a good selection of beers, spirits and whiskies. Along with this, the food choice and quality was the best we have had in the area, better than the Seafield in Cullen for our family. Fresh local produce from the sea and land expertly prepared and served by a busy restaurant team that always had a smile on their faces. Between the 2 adults and 2 children we had a decent range of starters, mains and sweets on our 2 visits - couldn't fault anything and the next time we venture to Portsoy it will be our first stop.More

Stayed here this week. The staff are all friendly and helpful. Susan the owner showed us to the room and told us everything we needed to know to settle in. Its an old building with lots of character features. The room and bed was comfortable...and had everything we needed. Breakfast was good, lots of choice served freshly prepared to your table with care and speed. Dinner in the restaurant was very good. Lots of local ingredients. Lots of choice. Helpful and motivated staff. The food was well cooked and presented and very enjoyable and exceeded my expectations. We tried several items during the stay and the black pudding bon bons, the monk fish scampi, the Cullen skink and chicken linguinie were all deliciousI would definitely stay and eat here again. Well done Cameron and Susan. The other recent review that says avoid at all costs can't be trusted in anyway in my experience.More
