Good hotel. Very clen and functional. I stayed in a suite but it was a little tired and old fashioned. In need of a makeover Holiday Inn can and do offer a more modern environment Food in restaurant was good

I would recommend staying here. I booked 2 rooms for 2 nights and all the rooms were clean and very nice clean bathrooms. We have all enjoyed a choice of breakfast and very friendly staff. Food was amazing, we will visit this hotel again in future. Very good location for visiting Aberdeen.

Easy to find using a sat nav, speedy and efficient check in as you would expect from this chain. The room (416) was clean but looked out onto a storage area and with the window open was quite noisy ( extractor fans nearby). I tolerated this as the evening was so warm it needed an open window for cooling. The... More

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...

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
