Lovely hotel on the outskirts of Aberdeen

Posted Aug 3, 2017
Pros: Excellent value for money and a beautiful building.
Stayed here for just one night with my husband whilst visiting the Gordon Highlander's Museum near by. This is a beautiful hotel. It is like a small Scottish castle and has views across the open countryside. We had a lovely meal in the hotel bar in the evening and also a great breakfast the following morning.

Nice Hotel

Posted Jul 24, 2017
Pros: The scenery was lovely. The hotel bar was lovely. The restaurant was booked so it offered a great alternative to dining.
Cons: The hotel had glasses randomly left throughout the property. The spa front desk person didn't provide any description of the services available.
Location: Short drive to Stonehaven and Dunnotar Castle.
Overall our experience was good. We were pleased with the accommodations. The hotel itself is lovely. The rooms are spacious and extremely comfortable. The service is good, but it would have been nice to have front desk recommend that reservations for dinner be made. We ended up dining in the lobby bar because there was no room to dine in the main restaurant. Good for a little getaway.

The hotel is conveniently situated in Deeside.

Posted Jul 15, 2017
Pros: Spacious but intimate with olde' world charm. Bed and bathrooms were exceptional and the full traditional Scottish breakfast was fit for a king.
Cons: Dinner menu was sadly lacking and expensive. French fries appeared to be from a frozen bag and not freshly made from scratch & burger charred!
Location: Drum & Crathes Castles are near by as well as the picturesque towns of Peterculter & Banchory. Stonehaven fishing town is just below Dunnottar Castle.
The hotel is conveniently situated in Deeside For those who love to explore castles, coast lines and the nearby city of Aberdeen.

Lovely hotel in quiet area.

Posted Jun 26, 2017
Pros: Quiet surroundings, excellent and comfortable room, long walk from reception.
Cons: Food.
Location: Near to Aberdeen so all amenities nearby.
Hotel was very nice and comfortable, did not use spa facilities or gym. Did not feel that the food met the standard of the hotel. Breakfast was buffet style and found the food was not hot. Eggs were only fried with no other choice. Doubtful if I will return.

Great castle hotel, very modern amenities yet very charming. The garden was really nice. two bad things - the receptionist was kinda mean checking in, just very cold and not welcoming. And our room was superhot (because the hotel didnt have airconditioning, we were very overheated in the room even with the window open). But overall we really liked the hotel and the room itself was very clean and modern. Loved the shower!

Gorgeous hotel on gorgeous grounds

Posted May 25, 2017
We absolutely loved staying at the Ardoe. Our room was gorgeous and super clean and had everything we needed. The staff is extremely professional and helpful. We had the breakfast the next morning and it was amazing! The hotel is a short ride from the city centre - about £12 each way. We will definitely be staying again and recommending to all our friends and family. Top notch, first class, well worth it.

Lovely location and handy for Cairngorms and City

Posted May 21, 2017
Generally good, found some of staff very helpful and others quite indifferent. Food overpriced and not value for money but edible. Little / no other choice locally unless you drive into Aberdeen Braemar and Balmoral worth a trip, but further than you think to drive. Aberdeen interesting city, especially beach area and around golf course on south shore

Hotel in lovely setting and everything was ok but could have been so much better if a bit of attention to detail in cleaning, tending of facilities, food and service.
