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

Myself and 10 collogues had a retirement lunch at this Hotel last Friday 18th October. Going by ever ones comments and my own, we found the meal, fresh, and with generous portions. The Staff were extremely helpful and were up to serving the food in time for 11 dinners, a special thanks to them.

We have visited this hotel a couple of times the past few months, for restaurant use only. We found the staff helpful, friendly and food is fantastic. Recently my Husband celebrated a "big" birthday and they accommodated us all very well.

I did not stay in the hotel, but me and my family went there for a meal. It was a lovely experience as it was our first time going there, but it was recommended by a lot of friends. Beautiful food, exquisite dining and wonderful staff.

Excellent food served by good natured staff. I would certainly eat there again. The Cullen skink was very tasty. Eight of us for lunch and no complaints. Enough said. We were only there for a meal at a very busy lunchtime and the service was excellent.
