I hosted an employee engagement event in the November 2014 timeframe at the Caledonian. From the start in inquiring about the property, the staff was extremely helpful. They provided layouts, pictures of the room, menus, etc. We also needed AV equipment which they took care of all the details. Upon arrival the room was ready and the entire staff was... More

Had a birthday trip to Aberdeen for one night only. Got the Thistle for a really good price including breakfast. Room nice on third floor at back so not noisy, obviously recently decorated as were the corridors etc. Great location, really central, just of the main Union Street. Usual bar, expensive but pleasant surroundings. Barmaid wasn't exactly the cheeriest though!... More

While visiting family in Aberdeen we had a fantastic weekend at Caledonial Thistle. Everything about it was perfection - the location, friendliness and professionalism of all staff. We ate in the restaurant on one evening and the food was excellent - plentiful and beautifully presented. We stayed in one of the deluxe rooms overlooking the gardens and it certainly more... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights because of it's central location. The hotel itself is probably 3 star, it's very standard, but it's clean and convenient. I would recommend some more amenities in the room such as more toiletries (not just shampoo & conditioner) and things like a bottle opener (which we had to borrow from the bar).... More

Stayed here with my wife during a Friday. Hotel has excellent location in Aberdeen. Staff were friendly and always spoke when passing. The hotel décor is very bright and in good condition. The room was spacious and again the décor was of a high standard. We were allocated a room at the front of the hotel which was very noisy... More

Beautiful hotel which seems like it's been recently refurbished, but let down by dreadful sound proofing and attention to details. We stayed in a room on the first floor at the front of the hotel, it felt more like we'd chosen to stay in a nightclub. There was thumping music playing below us until late in to the night (after...

I had the pleasure of staying here on the night of my employer's Christmas night out. The Christmas party delivered by the hotel was really enjoyable; the food was good, the drinks provided to the table were generous (£15 supplement but totally worth it) and the service was excellent. As I live outside of the city my employer had provided... More

Stayed here with my daughter for one night. I was concerned about being disturbed by noise as I'm a light sleeper but no problems at all. We had a smallish twin room but it was absolutely fine for our needs. Very friendly helpful staff. I made use of the car park and was able to leave the car there after... More
