Good location, comfy beds and a free breakfast. The only disadvantage is the hotel parking which is very limited. You can park in the multi storey which is literally around the corner £1 per hour, luckily we were staying Saturday night where it was free after 8pm until Sunday lunchtime otherwise it could have been very expensive. Also had some... More

Thanks for your review Graham-Janice, glad you enjoyed your visit. Parking is indeed a bit of an issue with only 13 spaces at the hotel. This is one of the trade-offs that have to be made for our central location. Luckily, as you mentioned, there is a multi-storey facility just 100 yards away which is free of charge for much... More

Stayed here to watch Sir Elton John perform at the AECC, found it to be very clean, tidy and reasonably priced. Staff were polite and accommodating. Breakfast was included but a bit disappointing, help your self buffet style, scrambled eggs, sausages and beans only ( no bacon) not very hot, but a choice of cereal and fruit. Coffee or tea...

Many thanks for your feedback Neil C, glad you had an enjoyable stay. The breakfast choices are currently being looked at on a brand level so there should be some changes coming soon. The orange juice machine should certainly have been operating correctly so apologies if there was an issue with it. I'll call and engineer to service it as... More

Stayed this weekend for two nights. There were three of us sharing a double room with sofa bed. Firstly wevwere able to drop our cases off as we arrived early and our room wasnt yet ready but this was easy to do and saved us having to lug them all around the city with us. The staff were very welcoming,... More

Had a problem-free stay at this clean and pleasant hotel. The staff seem happy, the rooms are soundproofed, the curtains let in no light, the towels are fluffy and it's ideally positioned. Add to that the fact that the prospect of free breakfast gets you up in enough time to actually DO STUFF while you're visiting Aberdeen, and you've got... More

I loved everything about this hotel, including ease of check-in and -out. The location couldn't have been better, only a 5-minute taxi ride from the train station and half a block from Union Street! Everything else is walking distance, pretty much! Buses run on Union Street to just about anywhere you want to go, including Stonehaven to see Dunnottar Castle!... More
