Stayed at weekend and superb location and handy car parking at back of building. Was on 4th floor, was very quiet. Room was on the small size and was slightly disappointed that it was just a double bed, used to larger beds in any hotel I have stayed in. Room was very cold in the morning when showering, tried to... More

Location of the hotel is perfect for both vacation and business stay. The street is view is just awesome at the dawn.. I would suggest to go for their breakfast as there are no many place to grab it close the hotel.

Very clean/large and modern... the only small flaw I can say (of my whole experience in fact) was that the room was very hot....The hotel was very accommodating and provided 2 large fans.. it helped a little, however I really...

The hotel is situated in the heart of the city. It's a lovely hotel and our room was very comfortable. The wifi wasn't working but we reported it the following morning and they sorted it out. I'm not sure how this hadn't been noticed earlier. The buffet style breakfast was good but not very hot.

The room I had was beautifully finished; not over-large but adequate. I had a room on the first floor at the front; this turned out to be very noisy from traffic and from revelling freshers. The hotel provided two pairs of earplugs with the room so I guess it is not unknown. The windows were about 3m high single glazed... More

Everything about this hotel was upscale, yet the prices were reasonable. It's very close to Union Street (where most of the beauty of Aberdeen is) and the train station. The room was very attractive, well-appointed, and comfortable. The breakfast is buffet with many choices, from the traditional Scottish (sausage and grilled tomatoes) to simple (Muesli and fruit). The staff is... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on business and would recommend it. Great location, lovely interior and good service. Breakfast was also good. I would definitely stay here again, although it is expensive, but every hotel in Aberdeen is expensive!
