Beats an hotel any day! Great place to stay and a great location to see the city. With a breakfast fit for a monk you'll still have to eat out but this is such a small price to pay for such wonderful apartments!!

Located a few minutes' walk from Union Street and many bars, restaurants and shops, this is an ideal location for a short getaway. Reception staff were cheery and helpful, storing bags before I returned to check in later in the afternoon. The rooms are indeed suites, and mine had a double door lobby between the corridor and main living area... More

If you want a bit more than a Hotel chain can offer coupled with an outstanding location just off Union Street whichhas lots of Restaurants, Bars and shops then stay here....that simple. Aberdeen is a great place to visit day and night and the Craibstone Suites are ideally placed to take advantage, only downside is having to pay for parking... More

Bon Accord Square is a pleasant and quiet location, not far from Union Street and very handy for the city centre. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable and the reception staff were exceptional: friendly, very helpful, gave us good advice on things to do and were very professional. The main drawback was that the room was more like a... More

The hotel is situated in Bon Accord square in Aberdeen which made parking in the street very expensive. But there is a good parking garage just 5 minutes walk from the hotel. They don't have a lift but the lady in the reception helped us carry our luggage to the room. She also gave us a very nice suite with... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Craibstone Suites. The hotel is immediately adjacent to the main street and CBD of Aberdeen, so no need for a car (parking is very tight around the hotel). Very close to restaurants and shopping, and good sized rooms with all the amenities. Reception staff were very polite and helpful. Would stay here again.

Just back from spending the weekend here with my daughter was a beautiful hotel and staff were really friendly and a great help would definitely come back. Close to city centre and wasn't hard to find only a five minute walk from rail station and union square

I stayed for just one night, so did not need anything special. The hotel offers a good value for money, the rooms and the services are very good. The only thing I did not enjoy in my room was the slanted ceiling, as I had to be careful not hit my head when I woke up.
