Fabulous.......

Posted 14-May-2015
Pros: Everything
Cons: The ability to book the Spa easier its very popular
Location: Paul Lawrie Golf Centre is excellent, 9 hole course and superb driving range and a lovely cafe......
This was a return visit to this Hotel as we were visiting friends in the area. The decor is stunning and we were lucky enough to be upgraded to one of the newly refurbished rooms.......very stylish and comfortable. Excellent facilities, mind you drinks in the bar and restaurant were pricey but that is the norm in this standard of hotel......couldnt book any spa treatments as they are apparently booked out at the weekends for months ahead so do bear this in mind.....food was excellent both dinner and the awesome breakfast served in delightful surroundings.....

Great place to stay

Posted 04-May-2015
Went for a weekend break, had a fabulous time. Hotel was clean, tidy. Food great. Bar was a bit expensive but knew about that beforehand. Close enough to Aberdeen City Centre to be convenient but quiet country location.

Traumhotel im Umland von Aberdeen

Posted 24-Apr-2015
Pros: Allein nach der Karte in der Hotelbar sind dort rund 80 verschiedene Whiskys vorrätig...
Cons: Minibar auf den Zimmern und Shuttleservice in die Innenstadt.
Location: Idyllische Lage im Umland von Aberdeen. Die City ist zu Fuß nicht zu erreichen (ca. 10 km entfernt).
Das Hotel ist ein umgebautes viktorianisches Schloss mit diversen Anbauten (Schwimmbad etc.) und toller Parkanlage. Sukzessive Zimmerrenovierungen - aber keine Lärm- oder Schmutzbelästigungen. Lediglich minimale Einschränkungen in den bestehenden Zimmern (Minibar wohl schon entfernt... dafür aber wohl 24 Std. Zimmerservice). Es ist einfach ein phantastischer Aufenthalt... Der Oberkellner beim Frühstücksservice - ein Typ wie der "Graf" von Unheilig – ähnelt mehr einem Butler, als einem Kellner. Ein perfekter Service… und auch das übrige Personal ist äußerst freundlich und zuvorkommend. All dies hat dann auch in der Hotelbar seine Fortsetzung gefunden… ein deutscher und ein schottischer Barkeeper (Studenten) mit detaillierten und umfassenden Kenntnissen über die diversen schottischen Whiskys... und eine entsprechende Auswahl. Genial !!!

Not bad...needs a bit of TLC

Posted 26-Mar-2015
Pros: Old character
Cons: Beds need replacement Spa needs refurbishment
Location: Go to Stonehaven for local pub sea food grub. Old harbor town. 30 pounds by taxi.
Beautiful grounds. Room was a little tired, but in character with the old building. Corner room with high ceilings, beautiful. Bed a nightmare. Dip in middle, squeaky....needs replacing. Breakfast buffet not bad...little limited. Bar is nice with some character. Limited food menu. Staff friendly, but not that outgoing. Room service was good. Spa very tired, needs some updating.

Scottish hospitality

Posted 26-Mar-2015
Pros: No negatives at all
Location: The house is set in the country with expansive grounds, easy access from the city of Aberdeen, close enough to drive to the sights of Deeside.
The hotel was exactly as expected...traditional scottish stately home set in beautiful grounds...log fires burning every evening, the staff was attentive and polite, food was excellent, service was on point at all times...easy access to the city of Aberdeen. Would highly recommend this hotel

Historic mansion on beautiful estate.

Posted 23-Mar-2015
Pros: Main mansion area. Rooms, food, fireplaces, grounds.
Cons: Better pricing options for breakfast. Maybe three or more.
Location: Location is very rural, but only a few miles from several quaint villages, and Aberdeen is only 20-30 minutes away. Union Street shops and museums.
Beautiful setting on hill overlooking River Dee. Grounds amazing. Main mansion area kept very historic with blazing fireplaces in all main reception areas and bar. This was much appreciated as the weather in March is somewhat chilly and damp. Spa, gym, and pool areas were first class. Food was excellent and prices definitely reflected this. Prepaid breakfast was fairly expensive in my opinion, but the quality and variety was absolutely top notch to compensate.

Wedding stay

Posted 08-Mar-2015
Pros: Staff were very friendly and helpful and it has a lovely reception area.
were a reasonable size, with space for a small table and 2 comfy chairs. The furniture is adequate if a bit dated but then it goes with the character of the hotel. It had a good sized bathroom, with a bath and a very good separate shower. The only downside was the mattress which could have been more comfortable. The breakfast was first class with a great choice to pick from and very tasty. The staff were very polite and helpful, especially when we looked lost trying to find our way back to our rooms which seemed miles from the reception. The main reception area is very characterful, lots of wood panelling and log fires. Nice experience if a bit pricey, especially the drinks.

Welcoming Historic 18th Century Hotel

Posted 07-Jan-2015
Pros: We really liked the staff!! They were all really wonderful. We also loved the quiet location, & the breakfast choices were fantastic!!
Cons: The food choices. The breakfast menu is fabulous, but the lunch & dinner choices were very limited & we got tired of the same few options.
Location: Not much around the hotel, but easy enough to get a taxi to take you wherever you want to go. It's only 15 mins. from the shops & town of Aberdeen.
We enjoyed our stay at the Ardoe House. The staff were very welcoming, friendly, happy and helpful. They arranged cabs for us to take us wherever we wanted to go, so it was nice having that service provided for us. The hotel was a castle actually, and had so much character and was a very unique experience. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely stay at it again, should we ever return to Aberdeen.
