I stayed here for one night on business travel, and was a bit worried after reading some of the revues here. But I was pleasantly surprised. My room was clean and spacious. The hotel layout is a but confusing, and could do with some more signs. I had trouble finding my room (520), it turned out to be on the... More

The outside of this hotel does not look very appealing but once inside it transforms. The rooms are large and bright and very clean. The staff were also very helpful when asked about anything. the food was first class even though it is all buffet style.

This hotel is never going to be beaten for being the worse hotel in Aberdeen or Scotland or even the whole of the united kingdom. I stayed here on business and can not think of one good thing to say about it. The best thing about this hotel is checking out as you can then go and book your counselling... More

There was building work going on when we arrived, which did not bother us during our stay. The reception staff could of been more welcoming but were not rude. Our room was spacious and most importantly clean, tea and coffee etc provided. Paid £90 which wasn't worth it, didn't include breakfast which I was very disappointed with. I think there... More

Made the booking for the hotel through 'booking.com' room looked clean and value for money and in a good location in the pictures on the web site. HOW WRONG COULD ONE BE!!

Unfortunately this hotel is in a really bad shape. Room was ok but not great, bathroom was yeah... just ok. The bed was itchy and the bathtub looked awful like it was a thousands years old. The worst was the breakfast, the eggs tasted like rubber and fat, even the coffee was horrible. Do not recommend.

Unfortunately the hotel was in a renovation phase but besides of that the whole building was in a terrible condition. The room was big and at least it looked clean. The bathroom was ok. The wall tape came down at several spots and of you're sensitive to noise you should avoid the hotel because the airplanes roar above the building.... More

Using a KGB deal for 2nights dinner, bed& breakfast we only stayed 1 night. It was SO bad! Leaving aside the hotel is quite shabby, our main complaint was with the staff, with a couple of exceptions they were lazy, could not care less, inefficient, rude. One male member of the restaurant staff was a complete ignoramus. the food was... More
