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.

Checking in was easy and receptionist very friendly. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Room service was fast and very tasty (especially the chicken wings!!). Wifi also very good. No complaints and would stay here again although the full price rate seems a little high but no worse than other hotels in Aberdeen.

The quality at this hotel is at the nicer end of the Holiday Inn spectrum, with good service, small but comfortable rooms and a pleasant bar and dining area. Food was good but not exceptional. The hotel is literally next door to the exhibition centre, and is also next to the bus stop taking you into town. While its not... More

My second time in this hotel in Aberdeen. Very useful choice for those that have events in the Exihbition Center. Also, the proximity of the hotel to Aberdeen sea front is a big bonus. Breakfast was very good and the staff very attentive. The bedroom was well appointed. Good choice.

Located next to the Exhibition Centre, so ideal for events and conferences. Rooms are ok, good wifi and a good breakfast. Certainly a business hotel, seems to be well used by rig workers and the bar is always busy !

I've stayed here on 3 occasions now as the location is good for accessing the airport and missing most of the traffic. It seems that some rooms have been refurbished whilst others haven't. Whilst the refurbished rooms obviously give a better impression, the older rooms are perfectly adequate. I feel the bar area can get cramped but have always managed... More
