Stayed here when visiting for a family party nearby. Rooms were excellent for a small hotel, as was the food in the restaurant, although I felt it was a bit expensive. We stayed in the refurbished wing of the hotel, so it was very well presented and quiet for all the family. Even had free wifi which meant all the kids could keep themselves occupied on Facebook when the adults were talking and drinking. Would certainly recommend for any stopover.

Hidden in the middle of an estate I had a bit of trouble finding this place and first appearances did not make for a good impression . Once inside though it is obvious that a lot of care and attention has been spent on this place,the room was spotless and well furnished with the on suit also looking brand new. Restaurant looked as if it had recently been refurbished and make sure you are hungry when you order as the portions are huge!
If this hotel was in a different location you could expect to pay double .
I will definitely be back the next time I am in Ellon

Got married there last week. Little or no help from staff. Bride arrived with no one to meet her. No master of ceremonies. The manager even forgot that we'd paid deposit and tried to fleece us out of £300. Only the quick thinking of best men saved service.

This hotel is located on an old railway line which is used as a cycle track making it very handy for us after a long day in the saddle. We were able to take our bikes through the hotel for secure storage. We arrived on a Friday night and the bar was very lively but friendly. We had dinner in the hotel dining room which was very good. Rooms comfortable and there was a good choice at breakfast. Recommended for cyclists..

We did not have a good overnight stay here. There was lots of noise during the night from the wind. I appreciate the hotel can't help the weather, but the noise is the result of the wind severely rattling the window in the narrow gap between it and the adjacent rooftop, which seems to act as a windtunnell. It was so bad it literally kept us awake most of the night.
The view from our room of the roof and the bins out the back was pretty grim.

The shower is extremely elevated in the room we stayed in, I suspect due to plumbing issues and this could present a problem to anyone less able.

We attended a function here in the evening and the female bar staff were the most miserable looking people I've ever encountered, either they need training or to find jobs that don't involve dealing with the public. They were polite I suppose, but in its hostile form. You got the impression they were looking down at you and that you were basically an inconvenience.

Our "welcome" at the hotel was also plain weird. The man eyed us suspiciously and after what felt like having to give an explanation of our business there, we were awarded our room key.

To add insult to injury the hotel owner tried to charge us for a breakfast at checkout that she knew fine well we didn't have as she had checked with us the night before.

Disappointing. Noisy. Weird.
If this is hospitality you can keep it.
