Quirky hotel which just adds to the charm of it. Reception was accessed by the 2nd door at the side of the hotel. Had to ring for attention which was fine, as the staff are busy working in other areas. Room was on top floor and had wall to wall patio doors leading out to a balcony. This made the... More

We headed here for lunch armed with a Groupon voucher and not knowing what to expect. The lounge/eating area is clearly but tastefully converted from several rooms and was quiet on the weekday we arrived. I had the goat's cheese starter, while the missus opted for smoked chicken and both dishes were well presented and very tasty. For mains we... More

Stayed here for two nights. Hotel well placed for access to city. Staff exceedingly helpful and friendly. Room very clean with excellent ensuite facility. Added bonus of balcony and open outlook. Long climb up to room .Breakfast good as was evening meal ( menu a little pricey ). Enjoyed our stay and would certainly return.

All round Brilliant B&B, arrived in Aberdeen early and asked reception if we could leave a case but they looked at available rooms and checked us in early. All areas are very clean & modern and decorated to a high standard, the bar was lively in the afternoon and although we never ate in the restaurant it was busy. The... More

We have stayed here a couple of times on a Saturday when visiting Aberdeen for the weekend. The hotel is situated in a pleasant residential area, just a a 15 minute stroll away from the city centre and all the nightlife, which suited us perfectly. On our most recent trip, we had a very nice, large room on the second... More

This is a cool place for a drink, with a very lively bar to the back of the restaurant. It is a little far from town so, in my opinion, does not lend itself well to being part of a night out which will include town venues, but if you're planning to be out this way, definitely give it a... More

Great lunch with family in Aberdeen. Parsnip & Apple soup and sandwich for £7.50 - great value, kids had burgers which were delicious and the others had fishcakes. Great place on main road in from Peterculter and well worth a visit!!
