This hotel looks good on the pictures as you only see the old part however the rooms are all in a soulless block house motel tacked on the side. I spent £209/night for this and to say the room was poor is an understatement. Ancient 70's style funiture that your mum would have thrown out, chipped and scratched poorly painted marked walls and old fashion bathroom with tired fittings throughout. I have also never seen so few TV channels on freeview available with sky sports only on in the tiny bar area that is like an entry into the cheaper resturant.
The food was poor and massively over priced as they know there is no where near as an alternative I ordered a cheese salad sandwich (£7.50!) a trained monkey could have made it better with salad consisting of 5 pieces of rocket and they forgot my chips (£5 - thats a £1 a chip!)and only brought them at the end!
The main fault with this place is it is miles out of Aberdeen if its busy it can take 40mins plus to get to the centre.
Be aware that the room doors have to be slammed to shut and should be checked as they do not self close - I saw lots that were partially open a theives heaven becasue of this in the early morning you get woken with people slamming doors
All that and charging £209/night is an insult (and they overcharged me - I spent hours trying to sort that) I wont be back!!!
