Aberdeen is microcosm of remoteness, do not expect the standards prevalent in the rest of the UK. Employees in these hotels have no equitable standards upon which to measure their service due to their remoteness, given that most of their employees are paid breadline wages, they have no concept of customer expectations regarding standards of both food and service.

The hotel us very close to the Airport, good if you are a traveller. We were there for a staff party, had a good stay and food was Excellent and hot. Our Room was comfortable and clean and we had no issues, also very quiet away from the main reception area.

We were 13 crewmembers from a ship checking in at 2330 8/1. After 4 weeks at sea we were dying for a couple of beers and maybe something to eat. We were told that "Because lack of customers, the restaurant/pub was just closing." A half our earlier than regular opening hours. This was a real disappointment, and to be honest,... More

Airport hotel and just a little too basic. Wine list very basic but reasonable and food OK but expensive for a bar meal as the restaurant was not open and had to dine in the bar with TV and drinking parties about.

Once again our party of 8 thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful Hogmanay Package with overnight stay and a full breakfast include. Aberdeen's best function/wedding band [Stone Cold Sober] provided a fantastic mix of music for a real party atmosphere.
