Where to start! Many years ago this was a quality, luxury hotel so I was really disappointed when I returned to the area after 15 years to have such a disappointing experience for the high price we paid. To start with the room was damaged - glass cracked in the wardrobe door, crack in the porcelain sink and a stain...

Beautiful setting for afternoon tea with my daughter but food failed on all counts. Firstly we were served our pot of tea straight away but by the time we were served our cakes it was cold. The soup was Cullen Skink, which really is a preferred taste. Scones were rock hard, as were any other sponge based cakes. Thankfully it...

I had an 'itison' voucher for afternoon tea, which promised a selection of sandwiches, scones, tray bakes and fruit loaf, so visited with my mother recently. We were served tea, followed by a cup of luke warm soup (??) and small selection of finger sandwiches. Some time later we received the scones, 'Tray bakes'' and 'fruit loaf'. Sadly, the scones...

Afternoon tea at Macdonald Pittodrie House has proved to be a very popular afternoon for many guests, so we are obviously disappointed that we were unable to meet your expectations on this occasion. Our Scones, cakes and sandwiches are all made fresh in-house everyday. We constantly strive for perfection, so when feedback such as this comes in, we will certainly...

I'll admit it....I was skeptical. Usually old castles that have been turned into hotels are long on the "old'" and short on modern amenities such as "clean", '"comfortable", "roomy etc. But while retaining all of its old castle charm, this place is totally comfortable for any contemporary traveler. Conveniently located for anyone visiting the distilleries west of Aberdeen. Each room...

Arrived at back of 1 o'clock and after checking in went up to room to find it wasn't made up from the previous occupants. Went back to reception where they apologised and was offered a drink while waiting for room to be made up. This drink was on my final bill. Whilst waiting found the tiny bar through the back....

We wanted to come back after having a wonderful stay a couple of years back but what a disappointment. Attention to detail is lost. Staff - mostly friendly & helpful but don't dare complain as attitude "it's not my fault" was sensed twice. From warm wine (at £47 a bottle I expected it to be cold at least), no working...

Lovely stay in a beautiful room with stunning view of Bennachie. Turret bathroom was unusual. Dinner was very good and breakfast very enjoyable. We had a lovely stroll round the walled garden. A treat!

My best friend treated me to afternoon tea here as part of a 'significant' birthday celebration. Did not want to complain at the time given the circumstances (my friend wanted to take me somewhere upmarket as a special treat) but I certainly would have if she had paid full price as opposed to using a discount voucher. Service was very...

Lovely grounds and staff, the Macdonald Pittodrie House is a beautiful accomodation boasting gorgeous views of the surrounding area. Our room was gorgeous with all the expected ammenities, but what really made it great were the dining rooms and sitting areas where you really felt the grandeur of this place.
