Thainstone House is a grand family home and hotel in Inverurie, near Aberdeen.  The house dates back to the 18th century and has a rich history as both a grand private home and as a much loved Aberdeenshire landmark.  Now lovingly restored, this elegant Aberdeen hotel welcomes its guests with traditional Scottish hospitality.

Set in 44 acres of woodland and parkland, Thainstone House is minutes from the vibrant town of Inverurie, near to Aberdeen Airport and in the heart of Aberdeenshire, perfect for short breaks away with the great rail links to Aberdeen and Aberdeen Airport which also makes  also making Thainstone a good business accommodation choice.

The elegant décor throughout with high quality deluxe guestrooms, fine dining restaurant with six course taster menu, and the best steaks in Aberdeen in Stockman’s bar reflecting a photographic history of the Aberdeenshire beef industry and those who helped shape it, matched with great ales, robust wines and brilliant malts – all make for a great visit to Thainstone for many reasons.

Recognised as a great hotel venue in Aberdeenshire andappealing to the thriving business communities of Aberdeen and Inverurie, who seek a different style of conferencing, weddings and events; as much as it appeals to the ladies who lunch, families celebrating or couples embarking on their married life together. 

Within the “properness” of the country home there are glimpses of the earthiness of those who have crossed the threshold in days gone by; the infamously named “Boy’s Room” with its risky magazine covers and posters matched with 1970`s duke box and 1980`s “space invaders” is a tongue in cheek brassy acknowledgement to the days when equality was more a concept than reality (and it also pays tribute to some of the region’s and country’s great sporting legions). The Boy’s Room always gets a reaction and is a great option for a Directors dinner, or winding down after a corporate team-building event.  

Thainstone Leisure Club with its strong Inverurie membership base has an outdoor hot tub, indoor heated pool, state of the art gymnasium, and relaxation area with spa treatments.

With the local setting of Thainstone being that of Aberdeenshire’s fertile lands and the coastal fishing towns of Fraserburgh and Peterhead as you might imagine the quality of “doorstep” produce is phenomenal and that is of course reflected in the food philosophy at Thainstone.

The wider context to the South West takes in the Glens of Aberdeenshire evolving into Royal Deeside with Balmoral, Crathie and Braemar forming a loop that brings you through the Spey Valley to Morayshire, along its world famous malt whisky trail before heading east again.  And when heading east you are in range of some of Scotland’s finest golf courses including Castle Stewart, Trump Menay and Royal Aberdeen which is the home of the Scottish Open in 2014.
