The Marcliffe at Pitfodels is a luxurious, relaxed and ultra-elegant five-star Scottish country hotel set in picturesque grounds on the outskirts of the historic city of Aberdeen in North-east Scotland. 

Since the official opening in 1993 by Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, it has earned worldwide renown as Aberdeen's only five-star hotel, and the ideal base for exploring all the many riches that Scotland has to offer. Although the Marcliffe offers a comprehensive range of superb facilities, which has deservedly earned it membership of the coveted Small Luxury Hotels of the World, it is essentially a family-friendly intimate hotel run by owner Stewart Spence who is fiercely proud of its ambience of warmth, ease and charm. 

When you choose the Marcliffe you can select from five suites and 37 bedrooms - all individually designed with your comfort in mind.

Suites and rooms have king-size or zip-link beds, while inter-connecting rooms have double and twin beds to accommodate four guests, with extra roll-away beds available for larger families. Naturally, we all have all the ancillary facilities you would expect of a five-star hotel, including 24-hour room service and our attentive staffs who will guarantee to make your stay at the Marcliffe a most memorable experience. 

We are especially proud of our culinary delights.

In the design and preparation of our cuisine, our team of chefs selects locally-grown vegetables to complement Scotland's finest fish, meat and game ... and reflect the truly Scottish nature of the Marcliffe. Set amid mature trees in 11 acres of wooded grounds, the Marcliffe has an instantly recognisable feeling of the countryside - but is just 10 minutes drive from Aberdeen city centre.
