The past and the present marry together seamlessly at Maryculter House – an historic property with traditional yet contemporary styling. The 40-bedroom venue, standing on the banks of the River Dee, has a rich heritage like no other in the area, dating to 1225. The hotel, set in five acres of grounds, has a magnificent position on the banks of the river. It’s a hotel which is popular not only with leisure and business guests but also for weddings – where couples may marry in the courtyard on the banks of the river – and private functions.
The privately-owned hotel owns fishing rights and has its own resident in-house ghillie and is a magnet for this who wish to fish the Dee.
Guests and non-residents dine in the Poachers’ Brasserie – which focuses on seasonal, local produce.
The hotel’s managing director, Peter Walker, is committed to staff development and has a record of encouraging new entrants to the hospitality sector and developing their skills and talents.
An apprenticeship at Maryculter House will provide opportunities to experience a wide range of differing guest types and events including weddings, private dining, corporate events and teambuilding, fishing groups and leisure and business guests.
