We had booked the hotel on a room only price , I had booked a double room but I think we ended up with a suite, which was a real bonus. Hotel is out of Aberdeen and you would have to get a taxi or drive if you were going to something in town. We did use the pool, the... More

This hotel is much better on the inside than it looks from outside. Rooms have been renovated to a high standard, The hotel is outside the city, so with Aberdeen traffic at it is I would only consider it if you are visiting one of the nearby businesses. There is very little else in the immediate area of interest. Room... More
