Had an absolutely delicious afternoon tea here this afternoon. We each got four finger sandwiches, two scones, a lemon posset, a chocolate brownie, a profiterole, a white chocolate marquise and a piece of carrot cake. Our waitress was polite and attentive but her apron was filthy. In contrast, the reception staff were well turned out but didn't even acknowledge our... More

Of course - we were happy to reschedule as we stay not too far away. As... More

This was our 3rd visit to Pittodrie House and once again we had a fantastic stay. On this occasion we got the "south" room at the corner of the building with superb views across the front of the house down to the walled garden and across to Benachie. Fantastic. Room itself was just perfect. Dinner was good. Had a little... More

This has to the best of the Macdonald Estate in our view. Whilst a little isolated the hotel and staff have everything you might want on hand. Beautifully maintained estate and gardens with the long driveway up to the hotel setting the scene for something a little bit more special for a Four Star facility. Reception was warm and welcoming... More

We were hosted at this charming hotel and could not have been happier with our room and the service. Unique architecture and design. only downside was the long trek to our room. I do think the bar could use an upgrade or expansion. The dining area/breakfast was beautiful. The grounds were spotless and well maintained.
