Lovely Hotel. Excellent food. Staff not the most helpful we've ever come across though. Downside is that it's a long way out of Aberdeen and not really near anywhere else that's might been seen as useful from a tourist point of view. Especially if, like us, you're on a coach tour and have no other means of transport. Too far... More

Located just outside the city centre this hotel is the ideal location for a holiday in Deeside or near the coast - clean, efficient, with very well appointed rooms and professional staff. Excellent value you too. Price includes swimming pool, sauna and spa.

Hotel is situated outside the city centre and that's keep you away from routine business and gives you a chance to enjoy your holidays. Product and service, both are excellent. Smile on each and every staff member is a added value for the hotel. Breakfast service was good. We stayed in Executive category and all we needed was there in... More

You only get one chance to make a first impression, the architect that designed the facade to this hotel had an off day, the place looks austere and Prison like, however once you walk into the reception all fear of austerity is lost, this really is a grand hotel, beautifully furnished and immaculately clean, all a result of good and...

The hotel was amazing and catered for all of our needs. The only issue with our stay was the prices of the hotels food and drink. 1 Budweiser (bottle), 1 rose wine and a small fanta came to £14.70!!! Extortionate to say the least. Also room service we had 2 sandwiches, 2 desserts and a rose wine was £34.30 (inc... More

We were met by friendly efficient reception staff who allocated us a good sized twin bedded room, with really comfortable mattresses. The final flourish to this stay was the food. It was served, hot on hot plates by super fast waitrons. We were on a tour so the as the food was included the menu was a three course, three... More

My wife and I have just spent a really comfortable night at the Thistle Aberdeen Altens, what a shame it was only one night. We were greeted with a smile at the reception desk and then told we were being upgraded to a double bedded executive room, not a bad start! The room was excellent, very quiet and the beds... More
