I arrived exhausted after a 10 hour overnight drive from London to be met by the hotel's very friendly staff who helped me unload my theatrical props into a spare room on the ground floor and showed me to my delightful executive suite upstairs. In what seemed like no time at all, I was relaxing in the very comfortable bed...

I had goats cheese tart and my friend had the ham hock terrine, we both had the Salmon. The Salmon was so fresh and light and it was all finished off with a great cup...

Enjoyed a lovely Carvery Lunch last Sunday at the Tufted Duck Hotel staff were very friendly & efficient. The meal was lovely with 3 choices of meat (Turkey Beef and Gammon) Lots of lovey vegetable & trimmings as well as homemade Yorkshire Puddings which were to die for, will most defiantly be visiting again very soon.

We recently returned from another stay at the Tufted Duck, and again found the staff here top rate. They are warm and welcoming, and eager to make your stay a pleasant one. Our trip was unexpected, but our concerns about last minute availability for our family were quickly addressed via email, and our rooms were ready and waiting upon arrival....

This small hotel is off the beaten track on the sea coast just south of Fraserburgh. Our room had lovely views. The room was small but but the bed was very comfortable and we slept well.
