Stayed here for one night (a Saturday) to attend a party nearby. To be fair, it was better than I was expecting based on the price and previous reviews but I'd loved to know where else people have stayed that consider this place "excellent"!! The positives...it's fairly cheap and I couldn't fault the cleanliness. There's plenty of parking down the... More

Nothing special basic budget hotel. Disappointing that the breakfast was Only Continental, not what I expect. I would have preferred that my company had to pay more and I hot a hot meal. So the office administration will note this and will only use if there is absolutely no alternative. Good sized room, clean, comfortable and centrally located.

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
