Took our wheelchair bound relative here for lunch...gentleman could have been more helpfull. Showing us wheelchair access and looking after us whither a smile. The food was most excellent ..from the fresh garlic mushrooms to the light battered and fluffy haddock .. Very homely and reasonably priced ...would recommend it .

While I cannot say that the hotel is perfect, as it is a bit in need of updating, I will say with emphasis that it is perfect for a bunch of golfers. The small hotel with bar and dining onsite is the best type of accomodation for us. Perfect for a group of 8-10. The owners, long time, also operate...

Spent two nights here on a nostalgic visit to an area I worked in 50 years ago. Very large and comfortable room with an outstanding view over the golf course to the sea. Very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfasts and dinners were very good albeit rather substantial portions. Hotel seems to be used more for its restaurant than accommodation trade...

Used to eat at the St Olaf very regular and we're always neglected by unattentive staff and waited long periods of time for drinks and food to be served. Such a shame as food is delicious when you eventually get it.

Husband and I had dinner at the St Olaf, our favourite place to eat. Food is consistenly good and plentiful at the St Olaf. We have never had a disappointing meal here. Good, friendly service, good food and plenty of it and value for money. Can't ask for more than that!

We live in Cruden Bay and have a choice of where to eat but I would much rather go here than anywhere else. Great value and only go if you are hungry as they like to feed you. Then there is the puddings WOW WOW!!!

I have been here on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. The pub is a great addition to a very good restaurant. All the food is cooked fresh and the service is homely and friendly. If you fancy a pint the beer is very good and the landlord is a cracker of a guy. Great wee pub

Travelling north from Aberdeen, and taking the A975 coastal route, the hotel is easy to find. A warm friendly welcome and after depositing our cases we found the bar for a gargle or two. Our room was nice and comfortable with a beautiful view of the golf course and in the distance to Slain's Castle. We had nice evening meal...
