Whatever you do don't stay in this hotel. Worst hotel I've stayed in. God knows how they are managing to stay open. We book a four poster bed but when we went in the room it wasn't there, so we went to reception and were basically told it was just tough luck! So we thought we would cheer ourselves up... More

For £189 you would expect a quality hotel but no this was awful from check in to check out. Room are in blocks that open to the outside awful run down concrete buildings. Poor choice of food with poor service food quality okay though and once in room okay. Never again.

I've been here before back in a freezing cold winter last year, and this time was slightly warmer, partly due to the fact that the heating appeared to be on?! I arrived around 9am for a day room, and immediately remembered this hotel as it has the longest corridors in any hotel I've ever stayed in! On the plus side,... More

OMG! never been to a hotel like this before. My company had booked me for a one night stay before going offshore to save the early travelling but what a shock. The company had paid over £100 for my room for a night and when I got there I was told I had to share with 2 other random people!!... More

This hotel has been given a facelift in recent years, however, those changes seem to be merely cosmetic. On arriving at the hotel, I checked in then headed to the lounge area where I was greeted with a blaring TV set and grotty back bar. The staff would disappear periodically leaving customers to stand for long periods of time. One... More

Menzies is an outdated miserable old hotel. The exterior looks more like a gulag than a hotel. I certainly wouldn't stay there if the company didn't pay. There are a number of new hotels being built at the airport, I'd advise anyone to stay there. To be fair, the breakfast isn't bad if it wasn't for the morose and belligerent... More

My husband and I spent a week in Aberdeen and Edinburgh recently. We stayed at the Thistle Aberdeen Airport Hotel, Dyce (now apparently the Menzies Aberdeen Dyce Hotel)on our last night because we had a early flight back the next morning to America. We realized that we had left our passports in the hotel in Edinburgh. In a panic, we... More

When we pulled up I thought omg what a dive, but once I got through the doors it was very deceiving. Very tidy and clean. Well presented. When we got to the room I was shocked at how big it was. We had a king deluxe room and had heaps of room. One side of the bed was fine however... More
