Quiet understated luxury.

Pros: Friendly and professional.
Cons: Sometimes we did find it was difficult to find reception staff or get through to them on the telephone.
Location: Beautiful Aberdeenshire countryside. Plenty of walks, and places of interest to visit.
Wonderful place for a celebration. Food excellent, great leisure facilities, friendly ambience.

Dear Guest Many thanks for your review and the 5 star rating. We pride ourselves on the high standards that we have set ourselves and it is great to read that overall these expectations were met. We are as you have noticed a very small team and often the person in reception is helping the restaurant team. Nevertheless this is no excuse and I have shared your feedback with the team in order to rectify this point. Please contact me directly when you wish to return, I'd be delighted to assist you personally. Kind regards Marcel Wassen General Manager
