Quite often hotels by the airport are ok, but nothing special. They are good for that last night stay before flying out. So I was pleasantly surprised by the Thistle Aberdeen Airport hotel. From the outside the Thistle doesn't look like a hotel, but inside it is all hotel. It is designed with comfort and business in mind. Our room... More

We occasionally stay here for functions and when we need to take an early flight from the neighbouring airport. This stay was a for dinner dance. We were warmly welcomed at reception and found we had been given an upgrade room. The corridors and rooms look so much nicer now that the refurb programme has been completed, with pastel tones,...

Stayed at the thistle at the airport at Aberdeen, it's really our regular hotel we use on airline business. Clean comfy rooms, excellent breakfast and choice freshly cooked. Ideal to set you up for a long days work. Handy free mini bus available too to do the terminal run

I stayed in Room 90 at the Thistle from the 18th to the 23rd January on a business trip to work with an airport related organisation. It is always a bit worrying when a hotel omits an external photo of the building from their website. However I can understand why the Management does so in this instance. This sectional concrete...

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.

I spent six nights at the Thistle while on business in Aberdeen. I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel and especially its staff. The staff were courteous and quite helpful. The rooms by comparison to some in which I've stayed in Aberdeen were quite nice. I appreciated the robe and slippers. The restaurant and pub were excellent. While everything had... More

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
