We stayed in this hotel to attend a birthday party and wedding and it was just the ticket. The views from the room spanned across the coast, it was like being abroad. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food was second to none. True it could do with refurbishment but at these prices you get what... More

This hotel was just perfect for a recent business trip. The room was simple and clean. Unfortunately I didn't have a sea view but I wasn't in the room that much anyway. Would highly recommend this place and would quite happily come back with other half for a break away. The restaurant within the hotel was fantastic too. I ate... More

Decided to dine here on the spur of the moment last week on Tuesday night. We were very surprised at how busy the restaurant was but we were greeted by a smiling gentleman who assured us they could seat us no problem. We waited a few moments until they set a table for us. The menu is fairly varied and... More

I stayed at this hotel while I completed a few courses at Petrofac in the nearby Altens estate. The hotel was a really convenient location for this, taking a maximum of 15 minutes to drive during rush hour. The proximity to Altens was one of the factors that made me book this hotel, knowing how bad Aberdeen's traffic is, and... More

We went here for Sunday lunch with our wee boy. They have a good kids menu which comes in small or large portions. They are always good at getting you what u want. The puddings are fab too although I do say "bring back the famous sweet trolley". Something cove bay is missing.

We had a lovely meal and evening at the Cove Bay Hogmany Party. Excellent choice on menu, and great service. Hopefully will be going back again. Have been at this hotel for meals several times over the years on a Saturday night and also for lunch and the service and quality are excellent

Stayed for 1 night whilst on a course in Altens. The room was pretty basic with squeaky floors. Aberdeen is generally over priced and this no exception. Anywhere else it would be half the price. Food was good, and not too overly priced. Breakfast decent and checkout smooth.

I was booked into this hotel for a training course and having read the reviews was a bit apprehensive about staying here. This was totally unfounded. When I arrived I checked on at the bar as it was later and was show to my room, a service you don't get very often now. The room was spacious and clean, the... More

The room I stayed in was well presented and clean. This en suite shower room was large in size with enough space to be comfortable in the bedroom itself. The restaurant of this hotel is large with an excellent and pleasant view out in to the North Sea. It also serves great food from a large menu. Only slight down... More
