We spent a weekend in the Thistle Aberdeen Altens hotel as part of an itison deal. The hotel is located in an industrial estate about 10 minutes drive from the city centre. This wasn't an issue for us at all as we were happy to drive in. Car parking is free at the hotel and the car park had plenty... More

Stayed here while attending a refresher course at nearby facility. Great all rounder food and service. Not to expensive for drinks and food. Comfy bed and good shower. Good selection for breakfast, local produce?

Stayed here for a couple of nights while working at the airport. I was impressed by pretty much every part of the hotel. Check-in was quick, and the room was easy to find. The room was very good - comfy bed, good pillows and extra cushions, bottles of water and toiletries supplied too. I counted eight plug sockets, which was... More

Had a delightful weekend at Thistle Altens Hotel in Aberdeen. The room was beautiful, felt really luxurious with lots of nice toiletries, bathrobes and bath slippers. We opted for the package which gave us two nights B&B with Dinner on the first night. The meal was lovely, 3 menus to choose from so fabulous selection. Breakfast had a huge choice... More

I love the soft bed and nice pillow. The room is spacious. Bathroom is clean. However there is limited toiletries for a good hotel like this. We will certainly come back to stay although it's a bit far off from town. The service provided is also good
