The Waterside Hotel Peterhead
Set in its own widespread gardens on the banks of the River Ugie, the Waterside Hotel Peterhead offers breath-taking scenery. The Waterside Hotel is the ideal choice for an affordable hotel in Peterhead.
The Waterside Hotel is situated on the north east coast of Scotland in one of the major fishing ports, Peterhead. There’s over 400 boats, a bustling daily fish market, plus a 100-berth marina. Whether you’re just passing through the area or have plans, the hotel provides the perfect base to explore what Peterhead has to offer. It’s here where you’ll find the dramatic cliff edge ruin of Slains Castle, where Bram Stoker is said to have been so inspired by the castle that he created Dracula! The castle is only 9 miles away, so it’s well worth a visit. If you continue along the coast to the north, 8.3 miles, you’ll discover the Loch of Strathbeg – Britain’s largest dune loch and a winter home for thousands of wild geese and swans.
Arbuthnot Museum is one of Aberdeenshire’s oldest museums and can be found 1.9 miles away. It’s home to displays of Peterhead’s shipping, fishing and whaling past plus Inuit artefacts and arctic creatures. You can also step back in time and visit the Peterhead Prison Museum, 3.8 miles away from the hotel. Set within the granite prison walls, the museum is dedicated to the staff who worked in Peterhead Prison between 1888-2013. You can hear staff members speak of their experiences as you walk through the halls, reception, shower block, silent cell and hospital. Or perhaps you’re a keen golfer and are looking for your next golfing destination. Peterhead Golf Club is only 1.4 miles away and is a classic example of Scottish golf at its best, set among the dunes.
Here at the Waterside Hotel there’s many facilities to make sure you enjoy your stay. Ogilvies Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner each day and Muse Bar is open daily with a wide selection of beverages to choose from as well as snacks. The hotel also boasts on-site health and leisure facilities, consisting of a heated indoor pool, gym, sauna, steam room and spa pool. The Waterside Hotel has spacious en-suite bedrooms that have tea and coffee making facilities, TV, hairdryer and telephone. Wi-Fi is free of charge in public areas and there is a free on-site car park. The hotel also has a 24-hour reception.
Getting to the Waterside Hotel Peterhead couldn’t be easier. The hotel is just off the A90, which is the main road running through Peterhead and there is free on-site parking for hotel residents. If you’re traveling by public transport, bus stops can be located on Waterside Road, a 10-minute walk, and the nearest train stations are Dyce, 33.2 miles, and Aberdeen, 34 miles.
