We stayed here last month on a one night break at a very competitive rate. On arrival at the hotel we were shown to our room which was very nice. We booked a table for dinner in the restaurant for 1930hrs. We went to the drawing room at 1900hrs and ordered a Diet Coke and a whisky (Glenlivet 18), after waiting 10 mins the waitress appeared and said did not have that particular whisky, I then asked for an Aberlour 10 from the drinks list, 10 mins later the same story no Aberlour, I then picked another Glenlivet from the list, 10 mins later same story again and my wife was still waiting for her Diet Coke. I then asked for a tonic water which appeared a couple of mins later, all told over 30 mins to get two drinks. At 2025hrs a staff member for the dining room came through and said our table would be a few more minutes, this irritated me as we had booked for 1930 and only 5 people had gone through from where we were sitting. When we were shown through to our table the restaurant was nearly full with many people still awaiting their first course. I wondered how many guests had actually booked a1930hrs table. We waited a further 15 minutes for our starter, the main course did not arrive till 2120hrs, nearly two hours after we should have sat down and by which time my appetite was pretty much gone. We were on a DB&B deal for which I paid a £10 supplement for my steak, when the dining staff took our order she did not write it down, as a result my side salad did not arrive with the meal, by this time I was so frustrated I told the waitress not to bother. However she arrived a few minutes later with a small bowl of salad ( which I did not eat as a matter of principle) for which I was charged £5, I was also charged £5 for no more than 40mls of pepper sauce. We were not offered a wine list and no one came to ask if our meal was ok. We left the dining room without seeing the sweet menu. On checkout the next morning I had been charged £38 for my two soft drinks, which the receptionist corrected after 10 minutes of fiddling with the computer. My overall impression is that although most of the staff were polite and friendly, the hotel is poorly managed and does not deserve its four star rating based on our experience. We would not stay again. Collapse

My wife took me here last night for a birthday dinner and whilst the food and setting were very nice the service left alot to be desired. On arrival at 1925 for a 1930 booking we were shown into a lounge and told someone would be along to take a drink order and give us menus. Some time later we were asked what we would like my wife ordering a juice and me a whisky. After about 20 minutes these were brought by a waitress but without no water for my whisky. I asked for some and was brought a half pint glass full when I only needed a splash. After another wait we were brought menus which showed choices of 4 dishes for each course all for a set price for 2 or 3 courses apart from 2 of the 4 mains has £8 or £10 supplements. After another longish wait a lady who I believe to have been the restaurant manageress took our order, then returning some minutes later to ask if we had been given menus. Eventually some 50 minutes after arriving we were ushered into the dining room where our starters were delivered fairly quickly. We both chose smoked salmon which was very tasty and we're offered bread which turned out to be appropriately the size of a credit card and with no butter on the table I had to go in hunt finding on a side table. Our mains of cod and fillet of beef then took around 30 minutes to appear after our starter plates were cleared. The mains whilst not large in size were well cooked and my beef was very tender and flavoursome. We left at 2130 going without dessert rather than risk waiting another hour feeling disappointed that would could have been a lovely meal was spoilt by sub standard service. Collapse

This was our second attempt at staying at Pittrodrie House, the hotel having kindly agreed to transfer our booking from a month ago when we got as far as Dundee before having to abort the trip because of the snow. This was despite this being a cheaper non-refundable booking through booking.com. Having lived in Inverurie up until 4 years ago, we had visited Pittodrie House on several occasions for meals and a wedding and we were not disappointed staying overnight. The hotel is full of character and our room (room 6) was really nice and cozy despite the sleet outside. Dragging ourselves down to breakfast, we must have been the first people down after the early morning rush and the cooked breakfast was nice, with good options. We did notice some confusion with other orders as the room filled up with the "second sitting", but this did not affect us. A really nice romantic hotel and one we will most definitely return to.

PROS My wife and I along with another 20 people were invited by friends for Afternoon Tea in the billaird room. This is a beautiful place to visit. The staff were very friendly and helpful nothing was a bother. It was nice to get fresh sandwiches and fancy cakes along with tea and coffee. The staff made sure we were well looked after. CONS I am disabled and before going I phoned the hotel to ask if it was disabled friendly. The receptionist said yes, there were steps but they put down a ramp which is used by Wheelchair users. I use a Scooter and two Walking Sticks. For a start you have to get to a side door from the car park where they place a ramp for entry. To get to this door is a nightmare. The car park is tarred but from there on it is covered in chuckies. For people with Wheelchairs or Scooter users or people with Walking Sticks this is a NO GO. The wheels of either sink into the chuckies and you are stopped in your tracks. The staff were very helpful with the ramp but to get there was the problem as we did not know which door to enter by. If the hotel laid down slabs from the car park to the to the side entrance this would work and make the hotel easier access for someone disabled.The toilet across from the billaird room, If handles were fitted to the walls this would be a great help. I had to use this toilet because there were steps down to get to the disabled toilet in the ballroom. Even though I had problems it was well worth the time and effort to enjoy the afternoon tea.
