We were a bit apprehensive about visiting, seeing as some reviews said 'worst hotel in Britain' etc These reviews must be out of date as it's now under new ownership and it's really not so bad. It suffers from stuff that can't really be helped in an old building, like baffling corridors that seem to twist and turn everywhere and...

I think some of the reviews of this hotel are really unfair. It is really clean and our room was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean as was the large bathroom. We only met one member of staff who was charming and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent. This is a really old building and is therefore a bit rambling and creaky....

I read the reviews before I went and was slightly concerned but upon arrival at The Huntly Arms I was very impressed.. The hotel is in the process of being re-vamped and has been taken over er by a hotel chain and what they are doing is working. The staff are friendly, the food cooked by the chef there is...

Thankfully, I have a good sense of humour, otherwise our Christmas getaway could have been a disaster! We arrived early evening on Christmas Eve, full of Christmas cheer and expecting a lovely, relaxing time in what we'd hoped was a beautiful highland hotel. We did receive a warm welcome from an extremely helpful and sympathetic young lady from Moldova, Natalia,...

Our room was cramped, noisy with dirty rusty Windows which ran with condensation even with the Windows open. The carpet was stained, the toilet seat broken and the bedside light flickered on and off. The carpets in the public areas were worn and threadbare with dangerous patches of torn weave, the edging on the stairs was loose. There was a...

Room- no working tv, no central heating just plug in heater, poor water supply also caused poor flushing of toilet. Over bath shower can only be described as death trap- no rails nor mats and huge step to get in and out of bathroom. Many sockets not working and some lights in ceiling also missing. Wind blowing in through window...

There is no manager to complain to . The "Manager" who keeps apologising on here is fictitious! Any offers of compensation are unfounded. You would have a better night in a tent with no hassle . Do not pay any money upfront....big mistake. They will ask for payment at the reception, do not pay them and only do so when...

Myself and my bf who is a big guy were given a single room with a single bed and wet room halls style bathroom. This was in disgusting condition. There was no electricity and the light did not work. Reception stated they were overbooked so could not move us. However it was still showing online we could book a room....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Probably the oldest coaching inn to be found in Scotland, the Huntly Arms Hotel was first built in 1432 and has played host to Jacobite leaders and even later, Queen Victoria. Located in the heart of Royal Deeside the hotel has retained much of its traditional charm and character and is just the thing for a relaxing and memorable Scottish break. Leisure seekers will enjoy the local area as many golf courses are within a 50-mile drive of the hotel, with country pursuits, gliding, water-skiing and cycling all available nearby. ... more   less
