The rooms are grubby the towels are clearly not washed to a good standard, generally out of date and needs a good spruce up. Typical of a majority of Aberdeen hotels. One night was more than enough as a majority of the guests tend to be offshore workers so its just the minimum standard

Contrary to some of the reviews, our team had a great experience at the hotel. We had booked a room and decided to have some planned activities for the evening. The hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful in seeing we had the asked for flip chart board and moving the tables and chairs so that a dancing competition could... More

Well where does one begin?.....Like the previous reviewer, our much anticipated works xmas night out was also a disappointment due the shambolic service and quality of this establishment. On first entering the function room it immediately had an atmosphere of chaos. Very busy, very noisy and on a minor note very much lacking in Christmas decor and atmosphere. The words... More

Decent food and drink at a reasonable price in congenial surroundings. Helpful staff. Free wifi. I had the traditional turket Christmas roast and one course was sufficient for my none too small appetite.

I regularly use this hotel to eat when in Aberdeen and it offers just what I want - traditional food, certainly better than old fashioned pub grub, and not too pricey. I have always found it very reliable. You know what you will get and it is a reasonable meal. Good service, friendly staff.
