I recently booked this hotel but unfortunately had to cancel. I was told I would be charged full price (£60).Dont book this hotel unless you are 100% certain of staying here.I gave them 4 days notice of my intention to cancel But still have to pay.I hope this puts off many people from booking early at this hotel.

We stayed in this hotel on a visit to see a friend in Aberdeen for three nights. We had a fantastic time throughout our stay here – the staff were so accommodating. Reception staff gave us great tips on what to go and see while we stayed and we ate quite a lot in the hotel’s restaurant Mollie’s Bistro. All... More

Recently stayed in a family room for 4, two adults and two kids, aged 8 and 6, it was spacious, very clean and comfy with great attention to detail. All the staff were attentive and welcoming and the atmosphere was relaxed throughout. There was an excellent choice of food at breakfast, served buffet style. We dined in adjoining Molly's Bistro...

I turned up early to leave my bag at the hotel to go shopping when I was told my room was ready & I could check in early which made my day first of all. The room was great, very comfortable & the shower was amazing! The breakfast buffet had a good selection too. The staff were all friendly &... More

My friends and I spent a great night at The Aberdeen Douglas Hotel. The reception staff were warm and welcoming and quickly checked us in to two twin rooms. The rooms were very pleasant and the beds particularly comfortable. We ate in the Bistro and the food and service were great. We were given recommendations by staff for a night... More

From the moment we arrived the staff were so welcoming, polite and helpful. Rooms were beautifully clean and the decoration was lovely! Breakfast had a good range of food and drink. Also the hotel is located right in the centre of Aberdeen so it was only a 4 minute walk to the train station. Perfect! Definitely recommended.

I was not impressed with this hotel at all. There were 5 of us staying for work for a total of 12 days. The check in went well but that was about as far as it went. I was given an apartment which was ok inside, a little damp smelling and the finish wasn't great. The down side was it... More

This hotel looks lovely from the reception alone! Our room had different coloured paint patches on the walls, massive cracks along the walls, two beds were pushed together which made it rather uncomfy. The bathroom wasn't even finished. Not a single nice thing to say about the room. Breakfast was nice. The rest of he hotel was undergoing repair work.... More
