“Ok for short visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Nice rooms and nice breakfast, the only downside is the location, not much to do in the area, it looks like this was an ex military base or something, but as I said ok for a quick visit, the rooms are a bit away from reception but not any problem.

Our stay here very recent was not a good experience. I would like to say that our stay was not good. We were promised WiFi . We had no Wifi yes it said that they have wifi , but not so. The staff just shrug their shoulders and then said it should work in the lounge. We'll this did not work either. Our television in our room had poor reception .Our friends who also stayed in the room next to us also had the same poor reception and no wifi internet. The Telephone was not working either. However when you enter the Hotel all looks great from the outside . Our breakfast was good ,so we at least can give them that. The front staff was also good , but other then that no help to make our stay there better. The deputy manager was there but did not help very much . His comments to us was about the internet and television , cement walls are the problem for the bad reception. He was not helpful at all. Just be aware of all these things , when you need to get contact with the outside world.

Room Tip: Rooms are far away from entrance , lots of walking to get to the rooms

Booked the hotel as it was on our cycling route, and thought it was excellent. Safe and secure indoor storage for our bikes. Attentive and helpful staff. Ate in the hotel and the food was very good. Would definitely use again if in the area.

Beware the Buchan Braes, it will suck you in. From the greetings on arrival to the comfortable rooms and the quality of food and friendly staff, this hotel is one of the best we have visited. Only small detail is that heating in bathroom in our particular room could be better due to each having a window (unusual in hotel ensuites), best to leave the door open overnight to allow some heat from vast bedroom radiator to perculate through. It's a shame hotel has not more windows facing to taking advantage of it's seaside location but because of the building's history it was obviously not designed for such. However, do not let it put you off, the local village has much history and is quaint and well worth exploring. All in all a great destination.

Went for lunch here with three friends. Very friendly staff. Great choice of food. The fixed price lunches are excellent value . Freshly cooked good quality food served to perfection by helpful waiting staff. The restaurant décor is beautiful and nice and clean. Parking is easy with good access for the less able. A great experience and hope to go back again soon.

I've stayed here a number of times, most recently at the beginning of February and as usual it didn't let me down. The staff are friendly and very helpful with any requests including the waiting staff who help me with my food allergies and are very thorough in doing so.
The food is varied and of a fantastic standard with many local ingredients included. The breakfast selection is excellent. I can't see a time when I won't be staying here when I'm in the area which is every few weeks.
It's tucked away on an old army site and the building looks a little industrial from the outside but when you walk in it completely changes your mind and the rooms are to a very high standard.
