We have stayed here several times whilst visiting relatives. Apart from a slight problem with being given an already occupied room when we arrived all was good, until we were then unable to get into our room the second day because the electronic key card hadn't been set for our longer stay. Very annoying when you're on the fourth floor... More

Lobby, bar and restaurant was nice. Room was awful, and if we weren't so tired, and it wasn't so late, I would have found another hotel. Old, beaten up room - stains all over the place, old furniture, damp... it was bearable for one night, but not more than that. The breakfast was okay, but the dinner was pretty crummy... More

It didn't help that I ended up in a room on the ground floor with a view overlooking the underground car park. That aside, the wallpaper was peeling and the floor stained. It has really seen better days. I've previously given the hotel 4 stars for the convenience of the AECC, but when you don't need to be near it,... More

As i arrived at this holiday inn, I was dreading the stay. From outside it does look really dirty. The windows are all black around the edges. When entering the building I got a burst of release because it was clean and looked well maintained. The room was very clean. In need of a face lift. In our room suite... More

We continue to enjoy stays at this hotel which offers excellent value. Also, the proximity of the hotel to Aberdeen sea front is a big bonus. Breakfast was very good and the staff very attentive. The hot food dishes were replenished frequently and the other food trays/baskets were regularly freshened up. The bedroom was well appointed although the two disappointments... More

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.

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.
