Stayed two nights for business. Staff very friendly, location super. Had nice double bedroom, kitchen, and living room. Perfect for business trip. Only thing I could say is it was a little cold, but then again, it is January in Aberdeen.

An apartment for the price of a single room anywhere else in Aberdeen, we were made very welcome on our arrival and when I had finished signing in the concierge had already gathered our luggage to escort us to our accommodation.

Great apartment - one bed flat. Very Clean and cosy. Well maintained. Parking and great location for the city and a night out. Helpful staff as key didn't work. Would definitely use again and would think of for a business trip also. Excellent!

Clean and Comfortable basic accommodation with all you need to be home from home. Not so sure of the upgrade to a superior room though, for instance the noise outside from traffic the very noticeable and you here people coming and going from other apartments within at all hours of the night. The TV was small and outdated as it... More

Booked only a week before. A fine location and a lovely suite. Breakfast was continental but beautifully fresh with a good choice. Staff could not have. Been more helpful. Parking good and only a short walk to Union Street .

Our stay started off perfect by letting us check in early after our long flight. The staff is friendly and helpful. Since it was my husbands birthday I asked for recommendations on a steak house for dinner. They suggested the Stage Door and made our reservations. After the day of exploring the city we came back to our room and... More

Stayed at this place for a couple of nights on a family vacation in August (on two separate occasions). Loved having all the space an apartment provides with two bedrooms and a nice living room. Also had a kitchen, which looked well-equipped, although we didn't use it on either stay. Both the apartments were very nice and clean and we... More
