I've been pushed there due to cancellation of my flight so no patience at all... Kindness support since the reception, a nice bed, shower, tube, toiletry accessories and a a very good food for a nice price at their restaurant.

My partner and I are regular visitors to this hotel as we just love the large rooms and excellent spa facilities. Food was superb throughout our 2 day stay and the staff were a credit to the Thistle group. City centre is a short ten minute bus ride away and hotel is in a great location for a quick getaway...

Would have gave this 5 stars if the room heater had of worked and if dinner had of been worth it. I was told by reception that someone would have a look at my room heater and a portable heater would be supplied if they could not fix it. As I was only staying for 2 nights I decided to... More

My husband and I spent two nights here in November for a shopping trip to Aberdeen. Although we weren't too impressed from the look of the building on the outside, it was very modern inside and they even had the Christmas decorations up which made it look very festive. There is also plenty of parking outside and you are only... More

The Thistle hotel is slightly dated, but it is very very comfortable. Staff at reception are most helpful, and on this occasion they offered to help me with my cases and organised a free shuttle to the airport in the morning. They also rang to check I had everything in my room. Indeed I did. Nice big pillows and duvet,... More

My company booked this hotel for my business trip and it was very convenient, as it was a walking distance to place I was doing my business. Parking lot is huge, so never a problem to find a spot, but taxi fare to the city is between 8 and 12 pounds, which is a bit expensive for fairly short ride... More

I stayed at the Thistle twice recently. In the first time, I was upgraded to an executive room for free because they did not have a standard double. On the second occasion, I was in a standard double. The staff are very helpful; indeed, 5 minutes after you check in, you get a call to your room from the reception... More
