Scotland East – Thainstone House

Thainstone House – Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

AA ★★★★

House motto – “QUOD PETIS HIC EST” to “What You Seek Is Here…” 








Thainstone House dates back to the 18th Century and is a grand family home and hotel in Inverurie, near Aberdeen. It is part of the Crerar Group of hotels and every inch inside and out reflects the elegance, style and luxury of a bygone era. 

Set in 44 acres of woodlands and parklands, Thainstone House is the perfect get-away for those romantic occasions but near enough to Aberdeen for Business Conferences and Team-building activities. The warmly traditional Scottish welcome is seen from the 2 AA Rosette restaurant to the high quality guestrooms. Everything the Crerar Hotels do is done with elegance, warmth and open-heartedness.

This can be seen annually when the CEO, Paddy Crerar gifts more than half of the group’s distributable profits to local good causes. This is the only hotel group in the world to share their profits with outsiders. Their philosophy of being the “Hotels with Heart and Soul” is not just publicity – they live this motto every day. So the more you spend, the more the local charities and good causes will receive. Much of the custom at the hotels are repeat customers. Once you have experienced the top class fine dining, the comfort and luxury of the rooms, the warmth and loving care of the staff – you won’t want to go anywhere else!
