Welcome to Maryculter House Hotel
Maryculter House Hotel is steeped in history and tradition, a classic 4 star hotel, 6 miles outside Aberdeen on the bank of the river Dee and a short drive from Aberdeen International Airport.
We are unique among Scottish Country House Hotels as the hotel was founded on the site where the Knights Templar once trained, in around 1227AD. So experience for yourself the lifestyle of the Scottish nobility in one of Scotland's finest Country House Hotels.
South of Aberdeen, Maryculter House Hotel sits at the entrance to Royal Deeside and gives you the base for exploring all Aberdeen and Grampian have to offer - with Scotland’s only Castle Trail, a selection of thirteen unique castles; the Victorian Trail, culminating in Ballater and Balmoral; and Scotland's Malt Whisky Trail - the only malt whisky trail in the world.
We give you a choice of bedrooms from Deluxe Classic through to Riverside Patio Rooms and Junior Suites. Then there is the choice to dine in either our informal Poacher’s Pocket lounge or more formally in the AA Rosetted ‘The Priory’ Restaurant. Why not enhance your stay, and allow us to arrange anything for you in your room, from a lovely bottle of champagne for you to enjoy on arrival, to exclusive chocolates, Highland Aromatic toiletries and fresh flowers for the romantics or our very own MaryCOO – our cuddly ‘Hielan’ Coo’.
A unique aspect of Maryculter House is fishing – as the owners of the Culter Beat on the River Dee, we can offer you an exclusive right to fish over 2 miles of this World famous Salmon River. Opportunities to fish the Dee are rare and scarce, and with the help of our resident ghillie this is an opportunity not to miss.
Besides enjoying our beautifully appointed bedrooms and highly praised cuisine we also offer you flexible meeting and event space, and a fabulous Wedding Suite, set on the stunning banks of the river Dee – The Templar Suite: an ideal venue for civil and religious ceremonies.
