I have stayed over here a few times recently and have to say it was much better than i thought it was going to be as Aberdeen hotels are generally rubbish. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean and the bar area is stocked with decent food and a good drink selection. The breakfast buffet has excellent choice and is guaranteed... More

Walked into hotel and said Wow looks lovely when you first step in. Receptionist wasn't very smiley when we first started dealing with her. Room wasn't exactly big but it was okay for 1 night. Single bed was shoved right against wall under the window so if you wanted to look out the window has to reach over bed. It... More

Nice hotel, near clean and tidy rooms. Staff helpful, restaurant is ok. Good location for this side of town and the exhibition centre but £15 either way by cab from the city centre. I stay a lot with business and it's always the same acceptable standard.

A very comfortable Holiday Inn which is easily found next to Aberdeen's Exhibition Centre to the North of town. Adequate space in the rooms, warm, clean, comfortable bed and good shower. Very handy parking just outside. Recommended for those who are busy around the city or places North.

The hotel is c.15 mins from the centre of Aberdeen and is immediately next to the conference centre. We had a triple room on the ground floor - very spacious, clean, quiet and a good shower. Breakfast was very nice: good quality cooked foods and plenty fruit, cereal etc.

This Hotel is in a great location if you are attending an event at the AECC but that is the only positive thing I can think of.

Stayed one night. Room was comfortable and shower was excellent until it stopped working! Hairdrier next to useless. Breakfast buffet at £10.95 was lovely especially the smoked haddock and poached eggs. I would have complained about the shower if we'd stayed longer but it was OK for the one night. Staff were generally very helpful.
