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

We arrived and were greeted by lovely staff who advised us where or room was. When we arrived at the room it was wonderful, secluded quiet and very well equipped. Breakfast was included which was good. Highly recommend staying here.

Really helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. There is a great choice of food in the restaurant, service was first class and the view out over the sea just beautiful. It's in a quiet location but still only minutes away from the main connecting roads into Aberdeen. Wi-Fi is free but speeds are better... More

We arrived late evening. The charming young man on reception took my bag and carried it up the stairs and through the maze of doors to our room. The room was spotlessly clean and warm and very comfortable. The hospitality tray was lovely complete with shortbread biscuits but the stretch for the kettle cord to the plug was a bit... More
