This hotel is an absolute dump, the rooms are rotten, smelly, smoky and very dated. The staff are very rude and they tried to con £100 out of us for parking in the hotel car park even though we were paying guests. Under no circumstances should you stay here, truly awful hotel.

This was so awful I was actually laughing by the end. Could't have made it up. On the positive side I met a few friendly and competent staff (no idea why they work there). The shower worked and the bed wasn't the worst I've slept in - that is in the fifth room I was given on the same evening.... More

Don't bother even consider going. It's cheap for a reason. Couldn't believe that they don't take anyone under 21 as it's their policy but failed to mention this when we booked rooms. Was less than Helpfu. Couldn't care less about our situation and didn't help at all.

One of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. They were undergoing major refurbishment, which I understand all hotels have to do regularly, of course, but there was little by way of any attempt to alleviate or hide this. Some parts of the hotel were literally like a building site! Once I'd actually managed to find my way to the... More

Stayed here on business. The hotel is undergoing refurbishment but regardless the room, reception area, corridors, restaurant are all in poor condition. Given the costs the hotel represents poor value for money. I would not stay here again.

Was below average, wifi very slow, staff were not interested in keeping you happy. Had a meal in the bar we didn't get cutlery before our food arrived so had to wait we are still waiting for salt & vinegar. Once food arrived it was ok. Breakfast on other hand would have been good had it been hot, good choice... More

Having stayed there for one night I would never go back, firstly I couldn't find the entrance due to building work, then checked in with no advice as to what floor etc my room was on, when k got in the room it had no window felt more like a prison, Was discussed with the cleanness of the room, Whilst...

It was obvious to see that the hotel hadn't been decorated since the 70's and our room wasn't cleaned for the duration of our stay (2 nights). It wasn't clear where the restaurant was in the hotel, we were told it was on the 2nd floor but there weren't any signs directing us to it. The restaurant offered a poor... More

I will keep it very simple (just as the hotel's theme): PROS: - close to the airport (N/A since I came by car) CONS: - when arrived the duvet on the main double bed wasn't made up to any hotel standard...basically it was just thrown over the bed careless - bird's crap all over the window - walls so thin...

Me & my friends booked to stay at this hotel for a night in Aberdeen. We had been there for not even 10 minutes and had already booked another hotel to go stay at. First of all, the outside of the hotel is a complete and utter shambles. Secondly, the receptionist didn't have very much to say on our arrival.... More
