4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Booked in for 1 night before early holiday flight. Outside looked a bit austere but inside modern and fresh. Good parking @ £3 a day and plenty of it. We left at 0510 so didn't have time for breakfast although it was served from 0500. Staff very pleasant and helpful.

My first nights stay in the Thistle, enjoyed the stay with very good customer service. Really did enjoy the stay and a great nights sleep. Food and ale also of high quality. Not really much to grumble about.

The hotel is only 5 minutes walk from the airport terminal, so very handy. The room was very clean with a writing desk, nespresso coffee machine as well... More

Unexpectedly left here due to the ongoing problems and personal unhelpfulness of staff handling Loganair flights to and from Orkney at the adjacent Aberdeen airport. So while not really wanting to be at this hotel, the service and helpfulness of the staff was a stark and pleasant contrast to what I faced at the airport as the Thistle staff smiled,... More

Location of hotel great for the airport, the room I was in was very comfortable and great level of cleanliness throughout. The bar /restaurant staff were very polite and efficient. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble and they were certainly hard working. Great free WI FI. On this occasion from check in to check out was enjoyable,
