House motto - “QUOD PETIS HIC EST” to “What You Seek Is Here…”
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 the heart of Aberdeenshire amongst 44 acres of woodland and parkland, Thainstone House is minutes from the vibrant town of Inverurie and close to Aberdeen Airport. Also with great rail links to and from Aberdeen city centre and the airport, it is perfect for short breaks and makes an ideal business accommodation choice.
The elegant décor throughout the hotel along with high quality guestrooms, a fine dining 2 AA Rosette restaurant and the atmospheric ‘Stockman’s bar’ all make for a great visit to Thainstone House for these many reasons and more. Stockman’s bar - offering arguably the best steaks in Aberdeen – with its own décor reflecting a photographic history of the Aberdeenshire beef industry focusing on those who helped shape it, matched with great ales, robust wines and brilliant malts – makes the bar not only great for residents but locals alike.
Recognised as a top quality hotel venue in Aberdeenshire and appealing to the thriving business communities of Aberdeen and Inverurie, it is also ideal for those who seek a different style of conferencing. Ask us about holding a very special day for your marriage or celebrating an event; it as much 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 risqué magazine covers and posters alongside a 1970`s juke box and 1980`s “space invaders” is all 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 delightful 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 available.
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 House.
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 - home of the 2014 Scottish Open.
