Good rooms good food and very nice surroundings. Handy stop over just outside Peterhead. Only thing I would say is its a busy hotel with a variety of business people and contractors so can be a wee bit noisy. Staff are very attentive. Very nice stay.

Extremely satisfied with the quality of food in this establishment... and very comfortable surroundings... We would like to pass an opinion of the lighting in the restaurant though... Softer lighting would be desirable

Rooms are warm and comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. Bar meals are nice. The grill dining room menu wasn't to my taste and I think a tad expensive but bar staff were great. Couple of issues with my room were fixed straightaway. My only gripe is the water was only lukewarm when I wanted a bath.

The rooms are of a high standard, clean and very comfortable, the showers are also very powerful not something you get very often, the free wi-fi is also fast, the food is...

The hotel had 2 staff on the reception desk and nobody else in the public areas. Nice large bar but sadly no room for a well behaved poodle who is better behaved than most...

The Buchan Braes Hotel sits in a small cul-de-sac near Boddam, Aberdeenshire Just south of Peterhead. This was my first visit and I was suitably impressed by the location and interior. We were made welcome by the receptionist and shown to a table in the main dinning area, the menu comprised of Scottish dishes as well as a few vegetarian...

You can't fault the staff for friendliness, nor the service, the food, the beds nor the overall cleanliness, but the lift not working to enable wheelchair access to the dining area, and that the wheelchair accessible room that came with a sign saying shower chair was out of order, the stale water small in the bathroom and the leaking sink...

We went of to have a tour of the old Peterhead Prison. First stop was the Buchan Braes! Quite a few cars in the car park, a good sign. We were asked to have a seat in the bar and someone would bring us menus and take our lunch order. All was done very professionally and friendly after getting our...
