I have stayed in this hotel on a regular basis for the last two years. Its great value for money in the Aberdeen area and is always clean and the room is always nice and warm . The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is continental and is always well stocked with plenty of choice. Plenty of car... More

from Reading the reviews from others, I was dubious about staying here. I'm glad I did as you can see from the updated photographs. My single room was very clean and comfortable.The room had all the amenities including ensuite, followed by a good nights sleep. The Adjoining restaurant was very very good. And over all I have joyed my stay... More

I stayed in this hotel to avoid Aberdeen rates. Good value although property looks bit tired. Room was fine and clean. Continental breakfast was ok; it would be nice to have more option. The food from next door Indian restaurant was amazing!

The staffs were welcoming and helpful. The rooms are a little tired but clean and quit. The Breakfast area was really modern with Good continental breakfast. The hotel itself is definitely budget priced and it shows. Not recommended if you have mobility issues as there is no elevator.

Rudest welcome I have ever had, only the room itself could match the misery of the sneering 'manager' on reception (who, incidentally, was kitted out in flip flops and shorts...classy). The inside of the building smells of damp, and the rooms look like something out of the '80s. Thank god I was away at work right up until it was... More

I apologise if you had ‘rudest welcome’, rest assured we’ll look into this. All hotels of our size do not have a dedicated receptionist as this it is very costly. There is a sign for a bell on the reception desk to contact a member of staff when the staffs are not in attendance. There is also a phone number... More

I have spent one week staying in Meldrum arms hotels and I wish to stay in again. Staffs were very friendly. Good size room with quality furniture and bedding. Room cleaning was really good, fresh towel and toiletries were provided regularly. Continental Breakfast was very ideal for me, can’t find any fault!

This has got to be the worse place I have stayed. Asked to pay before given room. The room which I was informed was up the stair after I asked for directions. The room was small, ensuite was mould ridden the bed side lamp had a tiny red bulb and was no more than a night light. I expect more... More

Upon arrival a month ago, I was asked to pay my bill for 3 nights in full on my Visacard! I said "sorry, but I havent even seen the room yet, and it's normal practice when staying in a Hotel to pay before you leave!" He then took me up to the room of which was pretty standard, and nothing... More
