5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in a junior suite so cannot comment on the standard rooms. But from what we could see, the standard of the hotel is great. Staff readily available with any queries, fast/efficient check in and a great breakfast. Location is as central as one could ask for. There was a false fire alarm in the morning which interrupted our... More

I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The location was excellent, staff were pleasant and helpful and the food was excellent. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. I will definitely be returning to this hotel in the near future.

Check in and out was effortless, the room was clean, the bar staff were friendly and the breakfast was one of the best breakfasts I have had during... More

Have stayed at the thistle on a number of occasions now, staff are always very helpful, rooms well presented and breakfast is ample. Great value for money and ideally situated for a night out in aberdeen.

We went to see a musical at the Kings Theatre and to meet up with friends. The hotel was very central to Aberdeen and a short walk to the Theatre. We also went for a walk round central Aberdeen and the shops. We travelled to Aberdeen by bus so no driving and we could visit all the historic Old Aberdeen... More

Dear George G, Thank you for your recent 5 star review on your visit. We are definitely in a prime location for theatre trips and exploring the city. We also do a great pre theatre dinner from only 2 courses for £19, I hope you managed to give it a try. Hopefully we can welcome you back to visit soon.... More

The hotel is nicely situated in the town so everything is easy to get at and the station is a 10 minute walk. Everything is present and correct in the room; tv, kettle, iron, etc. It does everything perfectly well and even has genuinely fast, free WiFi and a choice of 4 different sorts of pillow. Nothing outstanding but certainly... More

Dear Flipsandell, Thank you for your recent review. We were particularly amused by your analogy of being like a good Japanese car. Solid, reliable and never lets you down and if we are talking Nissan GTR or Honda Type R able to produce something a bit special when the time calls for it! Its great to hear you would stay... More

We stayed at the Thistle Caeldonian for one night when attending theTheatre, the stay was a 70th birthday gift from our daughters and at a cost of £161 per night I initially thought it to be fairly expensive. On arrival however we were met by a charming receptionist who informed us that we had been upgraded to the Terrace Suite,... More
