We stayed here at the end of September as I was working at an exhibition and we wanted a hotel with a pool that would help my husband keep the kids occupied! Our double room was clean and of a good size but the heat was unbearable. We were informed there was no heating on, but with two young children,... More

Great comfortable stay. Great food plus added bonus of pool & gym facilities to work off the good menu if needed. Rooms are very clean with everything you need. Decorated to a high standard Steph who worked at reception was excellent and very helpful and ensured my stay was 100%

Very nice hotel, much better than the Glasgow Thistle, hadn't expected much after our visit their but no it was lovely. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Got upgraded to an executive room and it was very comfortable. We ate in the bar on our first night, food was fine, standard harvester type food but ok for 1 night and... More

I spent one night here whilst visiting a local business. The hotel, which I'm told has almost a monopoly in Altens, provided ideal basic facilities for my purposes - albeit at an expensive tariff (consistent with the excesses of Aberdeen). The room was fine with free Wi-Fi and the staff seemed friendly enoough. I ate in the bar, which was... More

Despite looking like a 70's throwback this hotel is actually very pleasant. It's becoming a home from home on frequent business trips to Aberdeen and the staff look after us very well. Food is good and there are good leisure facilities. This is not the hotel to stay at if you are visiting Aberdeen as a tourist. It is, however,... More

We had a voucher deal for one night which was well worth the money - quick check in. We had stayed previously and the rooms are definitely a lot nicer since they have been refurbished. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice of hot and cold food. The only thing that let the hotel down is that there... More

Stayed two nights with friends. Hotel is located on the outskirts of Aberdeen but the regular bus service made it easy to get around. Hotel rooms spacious and very comfortable, used leisure facilities ( gym, pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi). Staff very friendly and welcoming. We ate in the restaurant both nights and enjoyed our choice of meal. Restaurant... More

We arrived at this hotel for a one night stay, just to check it out really as our daughter is getting married there in 2016. Looked at the hotel from the outside and thought oh no BUT just wait until you go through the front doors and its totally different. The reception is big, beautiful and very spacious.

The hotel itself is modern, clean, and the leisure centre is beautiful. However the location is quite a bit away from the city centre, there is a good bus service at the top of the road which we used. Found the staff friendly and helpful, I personally am disappointed that everywhere I go in Scotland Eastern Europeans are in the... More
