Great stay and dinner in the Marcliffe, the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We had car problems and straight away they said we didn't have to rush out our room for the appointed check out time so we could wait in comfort. The food and service at dinner was also excellent. Top marks to The Marciliffe !

Reception area beautiful, with real log fire and comfortable luxurious seating, great meeting area to have a drink prior to going to Aberdeen city centre. Bar area a little cramped with lots of seats but service fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. Bedrooms are wonderful, beds...

We asked for 2adjacent rooms and got them. They were spacious well appointed and very comfortable with lovely views over the extensive gardens. The staff were attentive and always helpful. We were part of a large party and staff rearranged tables for breakfasts and dinner to accommodate our needs. We attended a wedding which was well organised. Around 140 guests...

The food was amongst the best I have tasted. Beautiful decor. We didn't get a chance to try the spa but I hear it is also first class. The hotel has ample...

We spent the two days of Christmas here and every aspect of the stay was perfect. The room was spacious and well-appointed with armchair and sofa and plenty of storage space. There was a well-stocked honesty bar. The food was superb - every dish at every meal (from the huge Scottish breakfasts to the France-Scotland menu on Christmas Eve with...

Had the pleasure of visiting here yesterday for Sunday lunch with my Mum and my boyfriend. We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived despite being around 10 minutes late. The hotel was looking really festive with all the Christmas decorations and we were shown to the very comfortable lounge to order pre lunch drinks and make our...
