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

Great hotel about 5 miles from Aberdeen centre... staff are great and nothing was a problem for them...the food is excellent, very reasonably priced with a good selection on the menu. Room standards I found to be really good (except no mirror in the bedroom also furniture a bit dated) some rooms have amazing sea views ....hotel was spotlessly clean... 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

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
