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

Arrived at the hotel and parked at the rear. The hotel didn't look too bad but it was in the middle of houses from every corner. Going in the place looked dark and well worn. We were shown to our room and my heart sank. It was disgusting. The bathroom was of good size, but it had a saniflo toilet... More

We booked this hotel because it was near where we needed to be. It is an old building which would once have been a coaching inn, so if you have trouble with stairs, this is probably not for you. There are some outside rooms which have no stairs, so I had phoned ahead for one of these but there was... More

Stayed on business, slightly tired decor but room very clean, although rooms above the main bar can be noisy at night. Second room great, very quiet and slightly larger and decor more upto date. Food pretty good, staff friendly and happy to help. Located on the southern edge of Aberdeen so you need a car to travel in. Cove village... More

The Cove Bay is our 'go to' place as it's just around the corner. Never fails. Always impressed with the food, the service is excellent and prices reasonable. Usually rather busy at the weekend so we find it's best to book ahead to make sure we've a table and no wait.

We stayed here for a weekend break. We had both been working really hard and just needed somewhere quiet and peaceful, so this was ideal. We got an amazingly good deal through booking.com of a double room with breakfast, total price for two people was only £45. We were in room 11 which is at the opposite end of the... More
