The hotel is a doddle to find being located beside the gardens and the high street. The room was a little smaller than expected but had all facilities to meet every requirement imaginable. The staff were very friendly knowledgeable and most importantly helpful with any inquiry. Be prepared for the selection of options at breakfast, I will state it is... More

Excellent hotel, excellent location only 10minutes walk from bus and train stations. Shopping and restaurants all nearby. We spent a lovely night here when we were in Aberdeen visiting family. We will certainly be back.

At last a hotel in Aberdeen that is high standard and good value. I was upgraded to the Burns Suite on an overnight business stay. Last stayed her in 2007 before the refurb. Everything on my visit this time was perfect, no complaints and I cannot remember the last time I said that about any hotel apart from the Sheraton... More

When we arrived we were told that we had been upgraded to a deluxe room. This was spotless. We stayed for one night & with breakfast only cost £75 for my husband & I. I chose this hotel as we have stayed at a Thistle hotel before & the central location appealed, as did the 12 noon check out time... More

I stayed here for a week - still recovering from shock at having to pay £220 per night for a mediocre service! Not all the staff were deficient, but some definitely needed a course in how to listen to the guests. When I arrived at 10 pm the first night, I thought I'd have a drink in the bar before... More

Spent only one night here, however I would definitely go back. The check in staff was awesome. Terrific, service-minded attitude. The room had a fan in it, but no air conditioning as best as I can tell. It was a cool night, so I did not mind but beware in the summer. Breakfast the next morning was excellent. Huge selection...

I had to book a hotel room last minute & fortunately I got this room at a moments notice. The staff on reception were very helpful & accommodating. The room was nice & had excellent facilities within including free wifi which allowed me to enjoy my addiction to Netflix! Would definitely stay here again.
