Usually quite quiet and food is good. Dogs are aloud in the pub. The rooms and food are a bit to expensive, but cruden bay is gorgeous, give it a google. Love the old photos and beam stoker entry on walls

The hotel has onsite parking although a little tight. The reception area has a warm welcoming feel to it, with comfortable seating and a roaring log burner that is on all day. A member of staff quickly and efficiently booked us in, with a pre-printed form, no cards to fill in. Our room appeared to have been refurbished quite recently....

Myself and my husband had a starter and a main course each and everything was beautiful. My main course, halloumi skewers, was possibly the nicest vegetarian meal I have ever eaten. Please keep it on the menu! Great service also, lovely waitresses.

We often go here for a meal. There is a lovely relaxed lounge with a wood burning stove or a slightly more formal dining room, both of whom have a lovely ambience. Staff are friendly and service always good. The food here is excellent, I highly recommend the steak or haddock.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was fantastic. From the moment we arrived, we felt so welcome and nothing was ever too much trouble. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive, the room we had booked was dog friendly and the food both at dinner and breakfast was first class. If you stay there and the feather blade...

Fantastic food .Staff were very friendly. The public areas were scrupulously clean. There was a welcoming log fire in the lounge. .Verynear to the Sands of Forvie nature reserve. Miles of unspoiled sand dunes and peaceful walks. Hundreds of seals on the beach at Newburgh
