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

This was a bit of a random choice which turned out very well indeed as by coincidence it was in the same street as an elderly relative I wished to visit. First class room (15) with a separate seating area - a mini suite I suppose. The en-suite was really a wet room and I have not experienced this in... More

Close to airport. Check in, bar and breakfast service very good by friendly staff. Due to commitments was unable to sample restauarant but menu looked good and if at same... More

A lovely Hotel with a great location in proximity to Aberdeen Airport. The Hotel has had recent upgrades in some areas and looks quite good, however other parts of the Hotel are in need of upgrade and the rooms are a little outdated in some cases and its highlighted by the fact the bathrooms are upgraded its like they have...

Best restaurant in Aberdeen. Nice friendly staff. No worries about parking as have car park at the front. The food is delicious. Nothing is a bother. I do not like spicy food and this one does not serve it, Plain ordinary Aberdeen food just as you like it. Not in the city centre. We will not go anywhere else. You... More

This is a small but friendly hotel on the outskirts of Aberdeen which is handy for the airport and for touring Deeside and beyond. On arrival we were made to feel very special with a warm Scottish welcome. Our room was good and the food served at breakfast was freshly made to order. We would definitely recommend this hotel for... More

Stayed here after a quick search and the rates were very reasonable. Very helpful staff on arrival. Room was very nice, Double bed was on the small side but room looked as if it had been refurbished recently. Breakfast was really nice with a large choice and available for a very civilised time on the Sunday. There is not much... More

Booked a weekend break for my birthday. Spent ages looking at online deals and booked here based on the modern rooms. How wrong could we be. Booked in and off to the room. Best description would be country kitchen Laura Ashley 80s bedroom and a newish bathroom. Bizarre but fair enough the hotel are going through a refurbishment programme. BUT... More

Robertaberdeen, director at Craighaar Hotel, responded to this review

We did get an email from this customer; it was replied to the following day. The main thrust of the email was the absence of a minibar in the room; our suites have minibars, but the other rooms do not; nor do we advertise our rooms as having them. They seemed to have enjoyed their weekend and stay; the bathrooms... More

Stayed for two nights. A very nice room and good staff. However the food is poor. My main and starter were both below average. Two colleagues said the same. There is a nice tandoori around the corner though.

Its quite an average hotel as they go, i would rather a premier inn to be honest. The rooms are reasonable but some have very think walls. I think you could lift the carpets and loose many thousands of screws fixing the floorboard creaks too. Its not realy bad, but would not rate as really good either... Pretty average, but... More
