I stayed here for a few days whilst on a course in Aberdeen. Lovely wee hotel but a bit out of the way. Plenty of parking, rooms and service were very good. Staff polite and knowledgeable. Thought the evening meal menu was a bit of a disappointment. Well enough cooked and presented, just a little bit boring and limited choice.... More

A noisy hotel, close to the airport, I stayed there one night about one month ago with my boyfriend, a kitch decoration in the room, not really friendly staff, we came back about 10pm and have heard some comment behind our back going through reception to get a phone later with some rediculous price 30 pounds for an extra person...

We booked this hotel as we needed a room overnight, close to the airport. We were shocked by the airport hotel prices and found this hotel offered a fabulous price for B&B. We are so glad we stumbled upon it! On arrival we got a very friendly welcome and we found all the staff to be friendly, courteous and helpful.... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Room was mezzanine type with bed upstairs. Bedroom and living area were decent enough. Bathroom had clearly been totally refurbished and was lovely. The hotel is on the main flight path for Aberdeen airport and you could almost wave to the aircrew and passengers as they come in for landing and take off... More

Stayed at the Craighaar for two nights on a business trip. Close to the airport so easy to get to and better value than the alternatives in the city. The staff were attentive and friendly. I was fortunate to be upgraded to one of the suites which was very nice indeed. Would I stay there again, yes no hesitation. Chris.T

We stayed one night in the Pebble Suite and were delighted with our choice. Check in was simple, the hallway was a little musty but our suite was incredibly clean, spacious and well appointed with a mini bar and DVD player. The sofa was a little uncomfortable, we stayed in and watched a movie and I would have liked a... More

Stayed at the Craighaar for 3 nights.The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The hearty breakfast was served by a lovely wee lassie called Shannon(well we were in Scotland). It was plentiful and set us... More

We stayed overnight and the hotel delivered on location (for us) parking and wi-fi. Our room was clean but dated. Refurbished bathroom though which was good. The mattress was hard and thin with no support - so I had a bad night. Staff were all friendly and helpful. We paid £120 for 2 for B and B and have had... More
