We booked this hotel on the basis of three "frees": internet, parking and breakfast. There are, in fact, very few parking spaces. When we could not find one, we were directed to paid parking down the street. When we balked, a chain was taken down to allow access to a spot at the back. At the desk the refrain is... More

Thanks for your comments lasbris We're glad you enjoyed your stay despite the problem surrounding car parking. Unfortunately, there are literally thousands of 3rd party booking sites out on the internet over which we have no direct control. It is almost always these that provide inaccurate or incomplete information about our parking facilities. Whilst we do indeed have free parking... More

Stayed for three nights while visiting family. Hotel was very clean and well staffed. All staff were pleasant, polite and helpful. Breakfast was OK. Bar area is small but pleasant with competitive prices, particularly on the malt whisky deal of the week. Bedrooms are roomy and very clean with everything you could want. Bed was very soft and uncomfortable for... More

A Cheap nightly rate at the weekend. Room clean, bed comfortable, and pleasant staff. Car parking a bit of a pain, as hotel has limited parking spaces. Room well equipped & modern with free wifi which is always welcome. Only down side was the selection for the cooked breakfast.. and lack of cutlery.

Apologies for the low stocks of cutlery during breakfast, I will ensure that more is purchased immediately to prevent this from happening again. Hope to see you back again soon.

I stayed in June 2014 with a friend, travelled to Aberdeen for the Brewdog AGM which was held at the Exhibition & Conference Centre. In terms of location it was fine for that, a city centre base with a 5 minute walk to a bus stop and around 25 minutes out to the AECC, much better than staying out there.... More

Thanks for your review Andy N It's good to see that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the central location. The selection of breakfast items is unfortunately not directly within our control but I am aware that this is being addressed at a brand level so will hopefully improve soon.
