We decided to stay at this hotel as it was close to the airport & offered a complimentary shuttle bus service to the airport. This was high on our priority list for staying. When we enquired about getting the shuttle bus at reception for 04:30, we were told that the bus would be away at another hotel & could only... More

As we drove up to the Thistle we thought it may have been a little dated, as with so many modern multi storey hotels around, the Thistle is only two floors - well that thought was soon blown away. We walked through the main entrance and found the reception area tastefully decorated, surrounded by fresh deep piled carpets. The reception... More

Stayed here as a base for a conference. The public rooms were fine, the staff very friendly and helpful and the food good. The rooms were clean and comfortable but not luxurious. The bed was huge- rather too big for the room, but it was very nice. The breakfast was excellent and the staff were efficient in feeding a large... More

Attended a wedding recently and overall it was very good. The ballroom is a great size to accommodate a reasonable large wedding crowd. At night, it means the dance floor being so big that you aren't squashed like sardines like may other hotels in town. So that gets a big plus from me. The staff are attentive and friendly and...

Not a lot to fault the hotel! Decent size room, clean, friendly staff, reasonably good food! There is a but! Just like most other hotels during the week in Aberdeen when there are backlogs offshore and loads of people are looking for rooms the prices rocket!

We were given the most far away room from reception as possible. We had two very large suitcases due to going on holiday and there were no lifts. We were not offered help with our bags so were forced to lug them to our room. We decided to order room service rather than take the maze walk back to find... More

Arrived in the hotel on Monday and the service was good, they were helpful and polite. The hotel its self isn't the massively modern but still has a nice sort of classic feel to it and this doesn't take away for anything. The hotel does have reasonable facility's including a "small" gym, restaurant and bar. The hotel can also hold... More
