What a lovely old building to spend a couple of day in. Reception staff were excellent. Room was very large and comfortable. We had dinner on both nights which was excellent, service was a bit slow but we were not in any rush! Breakfasts were great, freshly prepared and VERY tasty! One thing I found amazing was the quietness all...

The tone was set we were greeted in the driveway by a gorgeous, bounding puppy and its sincerely apologetic owner who was on reception duty. The cuteness was almost too much. The next treat came on check-in, in the form of a complementary room upgrade and up we went to our fancy suite. The room was gorgeous, with immaculate crinkly...

I stayed in Pittodrie over the Christmas period with my family. It was a truly wonderful experience and we were blown away by just how friendly and helpful all the staff were despite the large pressure they were under due to the time of year. I would recommend staying to anyone with or without a family as they accommodate for...

Stayed for three days over Christmas. Hotel is a little tired but comfortable. Large bedrooms, modernised bathroom (although no hot water one morning). Breakfast generous amounts, with delicious eggs, don’t bother with the bacon - quantity rather than quality. Nice dining room and lounge area both with open fires and country house feel. Rather grim bar. However, great location for...

I was looking forward to returning to Pittodrie after a very pleasant recent visit for afternoon tea. However on this occasion I was very dissappointed.
