Booked a room in this hotel for a few nights of light horse play around the Aberdeenshire area. However, it turned out to be the worst decision of my life. Absolutely no staff in sight anywhere in the property or around it. One reviewer mentions a drunk Barman, well I am not surprised. There is not enough Sambucca on this...

Staff are very friendly and don't mind going the extra mile to deliver a good service. They also seem to be able to multi-task as reception staff help out at the bar, kitchen...

Cheap but cheerful hotel --threadbare carpet ,peeling paper ,tired worn out decorations in corridor and bedrooms -but service good , staff attentive, bedrooms quiet and clean with lashings of hot water. Breakfast adequate but pricey. Great if travelling and need a bed for one night about 20 mins drive from centre of Aberdeen.
