          Advertised as having WiFi but only available in the Bar and then poor signal. Should not be allowed to advertise WiFi unless it's available throughout the hotel. Food was rubbish, clearly frozen and then poorly cooked and presented, salad and coleslaw accompaniments ok but on a warm plate? Yuk

          Good location, staff friendly

          Lack of parking, poor decor with peeling paint, tired bathroom

          Good position in Aboyne. Friendly helpfull staff.

          Although it was clean it was a lttle shabby. Room decor and furniture was basic for the price, also the breakfast bar was a little disappointing for the price

          Everything about the the Huntly was excellent.

        • Couple

          The residents lounge.

          The room was barely large enough for the bed and to get out the shower room you had to squeeze against the shower to be able to open the door, the room was so small.The shower was ancient with a broken shower head. The sink was a miniture hand basin with broken plug. The breakfast had a good choice but the tea was is a big pot and kept warm on a hot plate which meant the tea was too strong and tepid. The hotel has 50 plus rooms of which only 11 were being used, yet we were in a room that looked onto an empty storage space at the back of the hotel, yet we were in a beautiful part of the town which could have had glorious views. Would not want to stay more than one night in this accommodation.

          Location

          Hotel runs a disco on Saturday night we stayed there. Not able to sleep until after midnight. Only appeared to be 5 rooms occupied and we were given one facing the back looking onto a pretty rough service area. Also adjacent to the centrall heating boiler chimney and with window open noise was intrusive.

          The hotel is located in a really nice area.

          Breakfast not open before 7:00 am. Cleanliness of the bedroom is not satisfactory.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          The room was clean and comfortable, the receptionist was efficient and helpful, other than that it is a fairly ordinary hotel.

          The food could easily be better, the bathroom lacked a glass and general maintenance could be improved.

          Handy for the Lodge on the Loch as we were attending a wedding there

          Room ans atuffy, room too small and in need of decoration. Furniture did not match and bedside tables had a napkin on them instead of a tablecloth. We had no view and thought this to be expensive compared to Hilton hotle that we spent out 3rd night at, our room had a balcony at the hilton for £109 we had dinner bed and brekfast. Huntloy arms charge £80.00 bed and breakfast compared to our stay in saville spain very poor. Tv was a 12 inch portable that we would have replaced 20 years ago, only 4 channels most hotels have flat screen and sky. No lift for our elderly friend who had to be helped up and down the stairs. We thought all hotels would have to have disabled facilities.

          Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful,and made our stay enjoyable as possible. Food excellent could not fault service.the location of hotel was also situated well for our personal circumstances.

          Decor very dated and run down, would benefit from a makeover, better lighting in rooms could also help. Our room had no telephone.

          Food and service could not be faulted, .staff were helpful and friendly.

          Hotel itself is rather run down and tired, would benefit from a makeover.

          Nothing, it was purely the only hotel available and I would not stay again or recommend

          Food awful. First room given the bed was two mattresses that could not be slept on. Asked to move room. Only 2 channels on tv.

        • Older travelers
          4.2

          Hotel needs updating the rooms are habital just, damp patches and not very cosy really just a bed for the night.Food is very basic don't think they could prepare a decent meal.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          The staff were pleasant and helpful.

          Couldn't get into room until 3.00pm, although staff did make special allowance. On return after attending wedding reception, having informed desk of our plans our room keys had not been left for us, various phone calls ensued, and again apologies from staff. The toilet in our room blocked, we didn't bother to report it as we were leaving that morning. Decor was a bit tired.

        • Family with children
          4.6

          Nothing springs to mind. It was really a base from which to visit other locations.

          There were a few areas that could be improved on and the hotel was certainly looking very tired and shabby.
