Stayed in the Balmoral Suite for one night. The suite was luxurious, very spacious and with every comfort. Breakfast was delicious with a wide choice of appetising foods to suit all if not most tastes. The hotel is very clean and decorated to a very high standard. Staff are welcoming, friendly and professional. The atmosphere is relaxed and despite being... More

The location was perfect right in the middle of everything. There was a street market in front of the hotel all weekend. It was close to shops, library, bus station, and theaters. The room was just the right size for myself and was clean and comfortable.

We travelled to Aberdeen with friends for a birthday treat and were extremely happy with both our rooms overlooking union terrace. We arrived earlier than planned and the reception staff were so helpful, giving us coffee in the lounge while our rooms were prepared. The beds I agree were so comfortable and our Sunday breakfast was delicious and plentiful. My... More

This is not the first and will certainly not be the last time we've stayed at The Caledonian. All of the staff are first class and go the extra mile to help whenever called upon. It's a perfect base if exploring the city centre and if you're shopping it's ideal for quick bag drops. We always have our children and... More

The hotel is in a great location, just a 5 minute walk from the train station. There's a lift to the higher floors but I really enjoyed walking up the stairs as the staircase is fabulous and oozes character. My room was a tad on the small size but the bed was comfortable, the shower room was spotless and I... More

Room was a bit small but perfectly adequate for 1 person for a 1 night stay. Check-in was a doddle and receptionist was excellent and efficient. Bathroom was good although, as one other reviwer commented, some floor tiles were cracked. Limited menu in restaurant but my choice was excellent; not too long to wait and piping hot, served by a...

I recently stayed here on business and I have to say the staff and the food was great. It is well located near Aberdeen Station and ideal for what I needed. My only criticism is that the carpet in my room was very worn, stained and patchy and in need of renewal. I did enjoy my stay but I would... More
