The room was comfortable and decor was nice. Could have been a bit more thouroughly cleaned though as there was a lot of dust and some toothpaste on tiles etc. Nothing to wash hands with so take your own soap/handwash. The shower room was nice and spacious. The room was a bit warm and the only way to cool down... More

I have stayed at the Northern Hotel more than a few times now and must say that it is a very comfortable hotel. I have been lucky and got an 'apartment' in the adjoining building a few times and it is much better suited to me than the main hotel. Despite appearing a bit dogged the hotel is well ran... More

Excellent service & unusual hotel decor, nice to try somewhere not four walls and similar to all new hotels..this hotel has character! Delighted to find this hotel, near university, hospital and city centre. Bus route just outside hotel straight into Union Square where we went to the Cinema after our lovely meal at the hotel. Steak was cooked to perfection.... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Hotel was spotless and had no issues with cleanliness. Decent location only 30 minutes stroll into the town centre. Manager called bob was absolutely superb. He couldn't be more helpful. Helped us out on numerous occasions, telling us places to go and explore Aberdeen. Very pleased with the overall stay.

We eat in the Ellingtons Lounge every Friday night & have done for the last 15 months & we are never disappointed. The lounge is art deco style & the staff are all dressed in black & look very smart. Service is always excellent. The food is first class at reasonable prices, I have eaten everything on the menu menu... More

This hotel is badly in need of the Alex Polizzi (spelling?) treatment as the entrance area is festooned in notices about all kinds of things, and I appear to share the esteemed hotel inspector's aversion to this kind of thing..... During my stay there I changed rooms once and slept in a new room for the last night - the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Northern Hotel when my husband was in Aberdeen on business.What a lovely trip back in time to the 1930's. The building is so full of character which carries on inside the bar especially it echoes times past with the Art Decor design and all the finishing touches which add to it all. If... More

We were attending a dance at the Northern on Saturday night so decided to visit early and grab a meal before the event. Unfortunately we should have booked, all tables were booked and 3 groups of people waiting. After a wee discussion with the waiter, he offered to serve us a meal in the ballroom where the dance was being... More

Rooms are always clean, fresh and comfortable. Whether you pay full price or get on a deal (some great deals to be had), I can always recommend this place as... More
