We went to this hotel this weekend just passed, it was the first weekend away with our 5 month old daughter. We got an upgraded room, which was lovely and so much room for all the stuff we had to take with us, plenty of room for buggy too and even had space to keep buggy out of the way... More

Booked a Stonehaven package which was great value compared to the sum of its parts although when booked didn't realise that the fireballs and concert overlapped so didn't use the concert ticket. Hotel looks a bit grim on the outside but is great inside, reception staff friendly, lovely spacious room, great all you can eat buffet breakfast. Although full over... More

I stayed here for 2 nights whilst in Aberdeen, and it's a lot nicer than I expected from the outside of the building. The lobby is very well designed with the whole interior of the rooms, breakfast room, bar, all very nice. I didn't eat here, I chose to venture into the shopping centre. The room was very nice, although... More

We booked as a group and from the moment we were greeted by the smiling staff in the lobby we knew this was going to be a great experience. The Thistle offered an amazing NYE package including wristband and transport to the Stonehaven festival, an eat-all-you-like and excellent breakfast, warm and cosy rooms, and a welcome-back stovie snack when the...

Stayed here after a Christmas party in the hotel(which was great, great food, great music). Room was lovely. We had a problem that there was a loud noise sounded a bit like a foghorn every few seconds that went on all through the night. We didn't notice it until the middle of night and morning but it stopped us going... More

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...

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.
