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

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!!

Group of us spent the night at the Gt Western for their annual new year function. What can I say apart from Wow !! Food was stunning, service first class and accommodation was great. This really is a hidden gem in Aberdeen. Well worth a visit and we will return again in the future.

The room had no mirror for hair or makeup and the hairdryer didn't stretch to the bathroom, also had no... More
