Stayed here one night on business. The hotel has ample parking, which in the city centre of Aberdeen is a fantastic plus point. The staff were friendly, and the breakfast was lovely. Would definitely return to stay again either on business or personal.

I recently stayed here while attending a musical in His Majesty's Theatre, had paid for a room upgrade and on arrival everything was more than impressive. However, when we returned to the hotel later that evening we discovered our room was directly above a function that had loud music playing until the early hours of the morning. Thinking this was...

Stayed here one night during a visit to see Wicked. Hotel was lovely. Rooms were well equipped & large enough for 2. We had a twin room & it was very spacious. Only issue was trying to find the thermostat to turn down the temperature, as room was very warm. We ended up leaving windows open, which resulted in hardly... More

When I booked I didn't realise it was a single room. Perhaps I should have guessed from price of £85. Room was tiny, approx 7" x 8". Radiator was up full so extremely hot and to open window you need to climb onto window sill. I couldn't manage but a member of staff opened it for me. Room pretty dark... More

Service, quality of sleep and quality of food were all fabulous. Close to all amenities and landmarks. Thoroughly recommended to all we travelled as a couple but the hotel is family or business traveller friendly.
