We booked this quite late on as had a major house move (England to Scotland) earlier this year etc, etc and this was the first time we could get away. Neither of us wanted the stress of coping with airports, etc, and as we have seen little of other areas of Scotland, thought a short break to Cove Bay, which... More

We stayed with a group of friends, celebrating a birthday. We planned a night out in Aberdeen, so we spent little time in the hotel. The hotel is a taxi ride away from the city centre, so peaceful and quiet at nigh time. There is a public bar in the hotel, which was good and served a good selection of... More

The Cove Bay is a hotel and restaurant just outside Aberdeen. We chose it as it was right on the coast and boasted sea views. The rooms were reasonable size and price. We had the two ground floor rooms on the south end of the building. The rooms were clean and tidy and quite spacious. There wasn't much of a... More

So disappointed with my recent stay here. Hotel is in desperate need of a refurbishment. Most of the staff are pleasant, but there are not enough of them! Had to wait too long for our order to be taken, for our drinks to arrive, for our plates to be cleared and for someone to ask if we wanted pudding/tea/coffee. I... More

Found on Internet and thought the cost for hotel would have e an tab it better than what we got. Staff were pleasant enough, the room had some modernisation but requires more especially the carpets. They tried to keep it clean and saw more cleaning staff than anyone else, strong smell of disinfectant. Good night's sleep once the local patrol... More
