My husband and I stayed here for 1 night early March 2015 as we had a concert in the neighbouring AECC. Cant really fault it. Granted it could do with a little updating in the rooms but bar and restaurant area were modern. Check in was smooth , reception staff very helpful. We paid a £2.50 supplement to have breakfast...

I'm still waiting for a refurb - the hotel is tatty, and the rooms need updating, with floor and wall stains and general wear and tear. On the other hand, you cannot beat the location if you need to be close to the AECC. The staff are fantastic - dedicated and caring - and make up for the poor state... More

I stayed for one night on business. Check-in was fast and efficient, and my room was large and very clean - if rather corporate and boring. I ate dinner in the restaurant. It was inexpensive and underwhelming. Service was average at best. the quantity of he food served did not really compensate for the quality: disappointing. Oddly breakfast was much... More

I spent 3 nights in this hotel since I attended a conference in the adjacent exibition centre. The position to reach the conference was great but the hotel itself was not so good: the furnitures were quite old and the breakfast buffet not exciting. Free parking. 20 minutes car trip is needed to reach Aberdeen city centre.
