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.

Firstly the menu was different to what we had looked at online (way less choice) and secondly we were seated in the breakfast room, not very cosy or comfortable. On the positive side, friendly staff. Cullen skink was ok, so were the haggis and blackpudding...bonbons. Then we ordered lasagne and chicken and leek pie for our mains. My husband found a hair in his pie, and that was dealt with quite well, but that meant I just finished my meal as my husband received his new pie… So not the nice, romantic meal that we were hoping for.More

Called to get takeaway off there takeaway menu, the took my money but the order was unsuccessful due to being busy. They took my cash and decided not to fulfill the order leaving us having to look elsewhere for a takeaway. Why take an order...when you can't fulfill it. No apology either.More

Delicious evening meal for our anniversary. It did seem slightly haphazard to start with but the food was excellent and the service absolutely fine. Glad we went. We are gluten free and the gluten free options were really good and the gluten free crusty bread...with the antipasti was delicious (rather than the usual defrosted slice or two).More

Absolutely outstanding! Bottle of prosecco (thanks to my other half) was in the room ready for us arriving. The bed was the comfiest bed I've ever slept on! The jacuzzi bath is just amazing! Absolutely massive and seriously enjoyed a glass of prosecco while in...it. The food has absolutely no fault what so ever! Massive portions, and the cocktails are to die for! Staff are so pleasent! So happy and always there if you need help or any questions. Only been back one day and recommended this place to my work colleagues already. Will definitely be back!More

Wonderful little hotel. Staff were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and so friendly. The food? I will be wearing loose waist bands on next visit. There is not only quality but also quantity. We were lucky to see a menu change on visit and...were spoilt for choice. Breakfast was amazing.More

Quaint old-fashioned hotel, perhaps a little «tired», but made up for by friendly staff from reception to bar to restaurant. Excellent breakfast by the way! Room was spacious and clean and the bath towels are lovely and big! Good value for money!

The Mill House is a lovely hotel full of character in a perfect location for walks or to use as a base to travel to local beauty spots. It is surrounded by natural beauty and a short distance to the local villages / towns /...beaches etc… The rooms are clean and tidy with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The food is excellent, good choice and fantastic quality local produce. The staff are amazing, so warm, friendly and professional. Nothing is too much trouble as we found to our delight on the last night of our stay. We had gone for a few drinks in Buckie and ended up chatting with some very friendly locals, one of whom owned the bar we were in. Several hours had passed and several drinks downed, we suddenly realised we might struggle to get a taxi back to the hotel. Our fears were realised - no taxis available ! The bar owner shouted “It’s sorted, I’ve got you a lift”. Minutes later, Janette and Ellie ( staff from The Mill House) turned up and said “We’ve come to take you back”. They had just finished a full shift, it was 11:30pm and instead of going home they had gone out of their way to pick us up. We were so happy and overwhelmed at this gesture of good will but they dealt with it as if it was all in a days work. This perfectly sums up the Mill House and all of the staff there. Genuine, friendly and nothing too much trouble. We will definitely return next year !! The local area is beautiful, the beaches (especially Lossiemouth) are stunning. White sands, crystal clear waters, lovely bars and restaurants, plus … if whisky is your thing as it is mine, there are an abundance of fantastic distilleries to visit. Perfect trip 😊More

Menu has been drastically reduced since our last visit - used to be a great choice but not so now unfortunately. Burger was ok - purple slaw not to my taste. Other family member said fish wasn't great and didn't finish it. We also witnessed...another table with a only a partially eaten fish when they had finished. Service was good to start with but we had to wait a long time for our sweets.More

This quaint yet characterful Hotel is a hidden gem to say the least. From walking in the door for a weekend stay, to the minute we left, we could not recommend this establishment anymore highly. A real must. Our needs, whims and requests were met...by a truly perfect team that could not do anymore to help us at whatever time of day or night. This highly motivated group of hospitality professionals made us more than welcome and allowed us to settle in easily in the tranquil surroundings whilst we enjoyed each other’s company. Service is second to none and always warm fully delivered by diligent people. The food and drinks (recommend the cocktails) were truly something to behold and are definitely worthy of culinary recognition and awards in the North East of Scotland, but also Scotland herself. The breakfast will set you up for the day and is at par with any highbrow hotel in any capital city. The rooms are immaculate and the whole hotel is kept to the highest standards. We are definitely heading back, as we have booked again to stay for our anniversary early next year. This place is magical. A must!More

We visited here with a friend who recommended the place. We were met with a warm welcome by a lovely lady who brought us drinks while we read the menu. The food was amazing I had the venison and this was truly one of the...tastiest meals I’ve ever had. The others in the party had mixed grills which were very generous portions and they both said were superb. Highly recommend this place.More

Went for a family meal Saturday night, There was 8 adults and one child. 3 of us was gluten free. On their website states gluten free menu 3 courses for £20 on arrival we was told that the menus on their page are old menus....So we ordered off the main menu- Prawn cocktail was missing the lettuce Honey sesame chicken with noodles came with rice instead of noodles. Eton mess for pudding and we was searching for the meringue. We was all very disappointed Expect my partner who had haggis bons bons and steak which he said was very nice.

We used to visit here regularly but after a recent visit we left severely disappointed, the place has definitely went down hill which is such a shame because it has massive potential. We will not be returning and I will be recommending for our family...and friends to be heading elsewhere for meals out.More
