Recently I booked 6 rooms in The Chester Hotel in Aberdeen. Without giving me an invoice, the cost of all six rooms was taken from my account when the guests checked out, so I had no indication that the money had been withdrawn. When, on asking, I got an invoice I found that all rooms had been charged for 2... More

Arrived on Sunday afternoon in bleak grey weather to find a warm welcoming hotel. Decor was great, rooms were comfortable (if a long walk), foods in the bar was great (club sandwich). Beer was a bit pricey at £5 a pint but hey ho - it tasted nice. Would go back quite happily. Special mention for the staff - cheerful... More

This hotel was very nice. The service was great and the rooms were very comfortable. In fact, the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. I really didn't want to get up for work. The only negatives were that my room was very cold. It would take a while for the room to warm... More

As a connoisseur of afternoon tea having enjoyed many in different locations across the country it was going to take something special to impress me. This was it! We were welcomed by a very pleasant young man in a kilt who attended to us throughout the afternoon. We were persuaded to enjoy a glass of fizz which added to the... More

The Chester was a very nice hotel that has just recently undergone a fresh remodel. I like the new look and feel. My room was very quiet and I slept very well. The service was excellent. The first room that I was given was a handicap room that had a high pitched electrical whine. The staff realized this right away... More

On the surface this is a very nice hotel. Nice restaurant, beautifully decorated rooms, attractive and friendly staff. It has one fatal flaw: The rooms are so noisy you can't get any sleep. I have stayed there half-a-dozen times, in all areas of the hotel and whilst it is quiet outside, the noise inside is unbelievable. Next door's noisy shower... More

overpriced for what you get, We booked hotel to surprise a friend before her wedding as a weekend Spa package to kick back and enjoy. Service generally poor, main area's not well serviced by houskeeping. Bar Staff for High tea were exceptional and also the Spa girls were fantastic. Breakfast service next morning and the Breakfast itself - simply Awful!!!... More

Overall the service in the hotel is not up to standard for the prices you pay, The staff (Particularly in the restaurant) are very young and had absolutely no clue about what food they were serving. We asked what Yuzu was and all we got were blank expression. Our group mainly ordered the Aberdeen Angus (Beautiful steak but served with... More
