Hotel needs upgrade. Bed too soft - my back was sore afterwards. We were told if we needed anything to dial zero on the phone but we didn't have a phone in our room. The hotel is in a very sorry state. See more

Tried to book in, reception unmanned with a sign saying go too the bar - unmanned. I wandered round the dark and dingy reception until, eventually, the guy that had been playing pool turned up to book me in. Room very cramped, kingsize bed, small room, only one bedside cabinet due to the 6 inch gap between wall and bed and no room to get in to close the curtain, the single curtain that was partly hanging off. Big telly on the wall and cables strung across the wall. Shower room was grubby, toilet seat very loose and the shower cubicle had mould over most of the grouting and generally looked like the rest of the place, just run down and neglected - oh and a hole in the toilet door. I was out for the day and returned at 2300hrs to find the hotel in darkness, my key would not unlock the door, I banged on the door with no answer. I called the hotel 4 times and I could hear the phone ringing inside but, no answer and no voicemail. there was a handwritten note on the door but, due to the rain the second number was all but unreadable. I called it and it just rang out - again. I had now been outside for about 25 minutes. I eventually shouted up to a window and the guy that had booked me in turned up at the door with a couple of big lads. They were unhappy, the mood was very threatening and I was feeling a bit intimidated to the point that I barricaded the desk in the room against the door. In the morning, no apology, no mention of it at all. All in all a bad experience in a dark and dingy hotel. Three stars? Only if my grand children had been doing the colouring in. The staff were atrocious, the building dirty, dingy and unkempt and the customer service beyond a joke. Collapse

I vehemently disagree with the parallels drawn by other guests between the Huntly Arms and 'Fawlty Towers', the hotel from the beloved BBC TV show. To draw such parallels is frankly insulting to Fawlty Towers, implying that the Huntly Arms is a moderately well functioning hotel. Although, it would perhaps not be remiss to speculate that the owner or manager of the Huntly Arms, has, akin to once beloved John Cleese, permanently retired from the UK. Were I not quite so appalled at the outrageous sum of money that myself and my partner forked out for one night at the Huntly Arms, I would probably have been more than mildly amused at the state of this so called 'Hotel'. Although, to be fair, the bed was clean and relatively comfortable, and the guy behind reception was pleasant and helpful, everything about the hotel was a painful reminder at the almost £100 we spent on our stay. To name, what I'm sure are only a few deficiencies of the Huntly Arms: - Our room, despite the photo of the high quality room with a four poster bed that proudly adorned Expedia's page for the hotel, was only slightly larger than the bed that dominated the room. - There were cracks, scuffs and suspicious stains on walls. ceilings and virtually all other surfaces within the room. - Hot water was stubbornly absent from the bathroom, apart from that emenating from the shower head. - The view from the window, although being able to glimpse of the majestic Scottish countryside, resembled a miniaturised municipal rubbish dump. -The safety stickers on the electrical sockets proudly displayed that their next date of inspection was at some point in 2015 (4 years prior) - The bathroom was rather dirty and the room more than a little chilly, which was impressive given that it was July. - Empty bottles, and rubbish, was more than a little evident through the hotel's corridors Overall, I would reccomend donating £60 pounds to charity, perhaps giving some slightly nicer Christmas presents, or even just nonchanlantly setting fire to £60 pounds rather than booking this hotel and subjecting yourself to this truly awful hotel Collapse

Up in Aboyne for 2 nights on business and hotel was ideal location. First sight, i thought this looks good. How initial appearances can be deceptive. Barmaid didnt have a clue how to check me in. "Theres a key, room 108 up stairs on right. Someone will see to you in morning" Never saw another staff member. Filthy,run down, and an eyesore wherever you looked. Put my key on reception desk and left after a sleepless night 1. No breakfast or should i say no-one to make any. What a let down to such a beautiful part of Scotland. Bulldozing this sh*thole down would be an improvement. A home for flies and rats. Shame on the owners for even attempting to flog this as a hotel Collapse
Just close your doors!

The receptionist was friendly - that's it! My booking was not on the system. The receptionist made a new booking... £20 more expensive. I forwarded her the original booking from my laptop. No further payment was taken. The corridors were filthy, in need of a deep clean. Vacuum cleaner left in the corridor throughout my stay. Dust was thick on the shelving on the 1st floor landing. The room was dirty, hairs and dust on the carpet, and on the floor in the bathroom. The bathroom was like a porta-loo at a music festival. The mirror was stained and tarnished. The kettle contained previous occupant's water. There was no hot water at all throughout my stay! Room was cold, windows were ancient/draughty, and slates were coming off the roof below. Breakfast at 7.10am - no one there. Returned at 7.30am - still no one there! Nobody on reception, nobody in the kitchen, nobody in the breakfast room. One breakfast had been eaten, plate still on the table but food was stone cold... Served the previous day. Cereals were in their containers but no milk. Two coffee pots sitting on their unit but again they were both cold. Wine glasses & beer bottles lying on the table in reception from previous night. Whole hotel was empty at 7.15am- it was totally unstaffed! In one of the bars, I wrote 'Any dangers of service' in the dust. Best thing this hotel can do is close its door, never reopen, knock the place down and build houses. This hotel is an embarrassment to the Scottish hospitality industry! Collapse

Please be careful when booking with this 'hotel' I booked through booking.com to stay here on sat 15th June, and had to cancel the booking(free cancellation no payment needed) I made this cancellation on 25th May. However this hotel has processed a payment of £95 from my account on Sunday 16th June. When contacting the hotel to query,i was passed from staff member to staff member, noone able to help with the situation other than the 'manager' who would call me back. Obviously no call back, so when I contacted them Again i was then informed the manager was in fact on holiday for 2 weeks. Constant lies from several staff members! After 2 days of constant back and forward phone calls (from my end) the receptionist was infact able to get me a refund (how convenient) which would take 7 days to clear according to my bank. Absolute disgrace- customer service needs reviewed at thie property. I'm glad I couldnt make the stay at this place as a few of my friends did and have said that it was very dirty run down and under staffed. They have also spoken with some locals while up visiting Aboyne and have heard it's the only place that lets such a nice town down!! Collapse
