My hubby and I stayed for one night to visit the theatre and do some shopping. Perfectly situayed for the city centre and leaving your car for the weekend. Fortunately, we had a room on level 3 right at the back of the hotel so we had a peaceful nights sleep. Aparently rooms at the front are disturbed by a... More

This hotel is ideally situated for those wanting easy access to the city centre. The staff are friendly. The facilities are what you would expect for the price (although the 'blocks' of scrambled egg at breakfast are unusual). However, the location of the hotel, i.e. between 3 nightclubs and a taxi-rank means that the noise levels with singing and/or drunken... More

Stayed here on a business trip. The welcome from the older woman on reception was nothing to write home about - very dry and not at all welcoming. The room itself was small but clean and had everything you would really need. The pillows were excellent with a choice of 'soft' or 'firm'. Tea and coffee making facilities in the... More

I am sorry that your welcome to the hotel was not as warm as you would have liked it to be. We like to think that all our staff are friendly and welcoming but we obviously failed to meet your expectations on this occasion. We will arrange some guest service retraining to ensure that all of our members of staff... More

To say the Express By Holiday Inn is a hotel is a little bit of a joke, it serves its function which is a room, bed and breakfast with a small bar just next to the reception. Perfect for Oil field workers who need a room for the night before they either go offshore or go home. But if I... More

Thank you for your comments on our staff and location. We are glad you found our staff to be friendly and helpful. The Holiday Inn Express chain was created in 1990 and are smaller versions of the Holiday Inns with fewer facilities and services. We hope that the lack of services did not cause you too many problems whilst you... More

Can't find much faults with this hotel I have stayed here 4/5 times, just round the corner for union street. Must say the sausages etc can be a little dry in the morning, but still easily edible. A very happy customer

Very decent hotel, stayed there a few time most recently Sept 14 rooms clean and location good, downside is parking . If you not parked early you will need to use the NCP car park about 100 yards away which is not to expensive . Also free WiFi which helps for working while you are out the office and catching...

Right in the middle of all the great restaurants and other great things to do in Aberdeen. The staff was very nice and more than willing to help make sure your stay is comfortable. On site parking is there for guests, and street parking is open around the area.

I booked my team into this hotel because of the great deal on 10 rooms or more and because of its proximity to union street in Aberdeen. The location was reasonably quiet with limited car parking...which I was lucky enough to get my small van into. The hotel receptionists were very efficient and friendly. No trouble getting all the rooms... More
