“Fab New Year's Eve until...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2012 via mobile

We booked for 10 people for NYE at forty pound each. Bit disappointed by how close the tables were, but this ended up to not be a problem.
The food was buffet style and the bar was brilliant.
We had a great night with a brilliant DJ. We thought this was a great night until we ended up at the bar having our final drinks. My husband was tipping a waitress, for her fantastic service all night, when a very abrupt woman came to the bar and shouted at our waitress for having our tip. I think initially we couldn't hear her but we generally think this was disgusting, she was an excellent waitress and matters like this should be dealt with behind doors.
Overall, we enjoyed our night but it was disappointing to see/hear how the excellent staff were treated.

We had our wedding at Durker Roods Hotel 18/11/12. We cannot thank the management and staff enough for their assistance beforehand and during the event, nothing was too much trouble. The food was wonderful and the day thoroughly enjoyed by all. Thanks Helen !

Booked a table for 6, Christmas Dinner. Paid the deposit back in November. Turned up to be told they had us booked for the carvery! The deposit paid was more than the cost of the carvery and we had a confirmation note stating a booking for Christmas dinner. It didn't need inspector Morse to work out they'd cocked-up. Jacob advised there wasn't enough food to offer us the Christmas menu! This is a hotel and we were 6 people. Was it really such a challenge to feed us. We stood our ground and eventually they offered a solution. Great, but next they seat us not in the main restaurant but in what I'd describe as the school dinner wing. Another quiet word with the staff and they move us to the main restaurant. Two complimentary bottles of wine are provided and the meal is offered at £10 per head. A good gesture I feel and in fairness from this point forward the service and food is good. If they had reacted this way at the point the problem first arose my review would have been better. As for the hotel, I can't comment on the rooms but the downstairs areas look a bit shabby and in need of refurbishment. Their website sells an image that the hotel can't deliver.

I can't praise this family run hotel enough me and my family have been numerous times for meals it's great value for money food is locally sorced and totally amazing nothing is too much for this friendly crew. Only wish I could go much more often but as I live in the north of Scotland ( Lossiemouth ) it's not possible. Keep doing what you do and I see you all again soon. Thank you for always making our visits special. Kerry

Stayed overnight as we were attending a dinner for a large group. The room was rather faded and had seen better days. The linen looked as though it should have been replaced by now. The bed was comfortable though. The shower height could not be adjusted, but the water was nicely hot. The breakfast was not of the standard expected following the excellent dinner the night before. We could not sit where we wanted to as the tables for 2 were against a wall and we couldn't sit at at table for 4 near the window. It would mean that the young lad, who served us would have to reset the table after we had finished - big deal! What was more annoying was that as we left a couple sat in the window table and were served by the lady waitress without being made to move - she obviously didn't see a problem. There was no soya milk, which in this day should be available. Only one tea bag in the pot for 2. The food for the dinner was excellent, well presented and served by very helpful staff (all female), which is why we particularly noticed the young lad in the morning being unhelpful and forgetting that it is customers who pay his wages.
