Extra Special Weddings

Located just 3 miles from Aberdeen City Centre, Ardoe House Hotel and Spa is a stunning 19th century baronial mansion set in 30 acres of spectacular grounds. The original house was built incorporating many design features inspired by Balmoral Castle, with distinctive pointed turrets.

Inside, we still have original wood carvings, mosaic flooring and stained glass with the Ogston Family Coat of Arms, to remind us of the original occupants.
