I went to the Northern Hotel with my friend for lunch, the service is very good, we did not wait long for our order to be taken. The meal arrived and it was a very big portion as well. The staff are really good and nothing is a problem to them. I will definitely go back agian.

The hotel was booked by a third party for a large group of us staying one night, Saturday, in February. My husband and I shared a twin room (at our request) which was spacious and clean but the decorations and fixtures were outdated. Large bathroom, again clean but basic. The hotel is over three floors with a lift that will only take two guests at any one time, arriving with a group of 30+, all with bags took some time for us all to get to our rooms. We were fortunate to be on the third floor as even when we retired to bed just before midnight we could hear the thump, thump of the bass drum of loud music playing in the vicinity. Highlight was a good, but basic breakfast. Fruit, cereals and a cooked selection topped off with toast and marmalade. A no frills, basic hotel but overpriced for what you get.

Went with a friend for a bite to eat.both ordered chicken curry but when it was due to be served the waitress informed us it was sweet n sour as the menu hadn't been changed.we were ok with that but it arrived with a pompadom and chutney.( think this is one sweet n sour with an identity crisis!)
It tasted vile and seemed be flavoured with both curry and sour no sweet.
We told the waitress about it and she couldn't apologise enough.we got money off and was offered
Dessert and coffee free of charge which we declined.
I must stress that the waiting staff were lovely and attentive but feel that a.the manager or b.the chef should have came and apologised to us not the waitress as it wasn't her fault.
Please note I have given this review 3 points and thats thanks to the waiting staff as it would be one if that.
sorry but will not be returning to the northern hotel anytime soon.

The rooms are grubby the towels are clearly not washed to a good standard, generally out of date and needs a good spruce up. Typical of a majority of Aberdeen hotels. One night was more than enough as a majority of the guests tend to be offshore workers so its just the minimum standard

Contrary to some of the reviews, our team had a great experience at the hotel. We had booked a room and decided to have some planned activities for the evening. The hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful in seeing we had the asked for flip chart board and moving the tables and chairs so that a dancing competition could take place.
The food was very good, hot and each course served quickly and efficiently by pleasant staff.

All in all a fantastic evening out so thank you to the Hotel Manager and staff for making it so.

Arrived at 7pm, and Xmas deco certainly got us in the mood, Ballroom looked great..very different and Deco!
All fed and Happy by 9pm and DJ had us on dance floor with the tonga in no time! Sad but when you got to party you got to party! Might go to Northern next year but like a change too! If you haven't been definitely recommend! "HICK" WHERE'S MY TAXI.
