As my title notes, this is the ideal stop for the AECC. The rooms were fine, spacious enough, comfortable nights sleep zzzzzzz. The food in the restaurant was very good and the service throughout was great. I would have rated four stars were it not for the price. I booked 4 months in advance and at £190 per night, which...

We would recommend staying here. It was a nice clean comfy room which was a decent size, nice bathroom. Enjoyed a choice of good food and friendly staff. Even had a choice of pillows! Nice view. Good location for visiting Aberdeen.

Stayed here for one night in June. The hotel has free parking which in Aberdeen can sometimes be rare. It's well placed for travelling to the surrounding areas, and is one of the better Holiday Inn's I have stayed in. The reception, bar & restaurant area is nicely set and quite well priced for its offering. The rooms are comfortable... More

Was unsure what to expect from this hotel as my sole reason for booking was the proximity to the AECC. Expected a decentish place to sleep and not much else. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this is genuinely a very nice hotel, with very helpful staff, comfortable beds, an EXCELLENT breakfast buffet, good Wifi and fast, inexpensive...

We stayed a couple of weeks ago, attending an event at the exhibition centre. All the staff we spoke with were helpful and cheerful, especially at reception. We arrived hours before checkin time, but they happily took all our luggage into store. The room was a good size, bright and very clean, and the window was openable (I always like... More

The hotel is in a good location for AEC and you can easily catch a bus into the city centre from just outside. The staff were very helpful and gave good servuce. The only downside is that the hotel is quite tired and the bed was worn and sinking in the middle.

I attended an event on the 060615 at the AECC and this hotel is brilliant for not having to worry about taxis or walking far after the event as it is only 100 m from the furthest hall.
