great find
Stunning views from my extremely clean comfortable room. I arrived late the first evening however having phoned ahead, the chef had made me up a delicious prawn salad, which I was able to enjoy with a glass of wine in the restaurant even though the kitchen was closed. Very friendly staff, nothing too much trouble. I will definitely use again. Thank you

Well done, St Olaf.
The hotel had just re-opened after lockdown, consequently I was the only guest for 3 of my 4 nights there. Alison diligently ensured that I was welcomed and that everything was good for my stay. The room was spacious, airy and was very clean. The views across the golf links, Cruden Bay and the North Sea from the room are perfect. I plan to return.
