Stayed 3 nights at this hotel recently and could not fault it, from the kind welcome we received from ALL the reception staff, special mention for Amelia, Kamilla and lovely Abbey who is a trainee, for their help in obtaining a suitable room for us and their explanation of the evacuation procedure for disabled guests in the event of a fire alarm being sounded, in which they are all fully trained. Guest with hearing problems are given a vibrating pillow if they wish, this will alert them to an alarm sounding in an emergency.
A mention for the other reception staff too who were extremely pleasant and quite happy to come round to the front of the desk and speak to us. Reception is bright and comfortable where a drink at the bar is available, and there are newspapers to read.
Our spotlessly clean room was bright and well proportioned with a desk and chair at the perfect height and the room had ample storage space. Our room had a large bathroom providing a walk-in shower with seat and plenty of grab rails. We had a superb view of the docks and as the window was triple glazed there was no noise at night. Very comfortable beds, despite most of their twin rooms being situated on the 5th floor, helpful staff arranged for the disabled room we got on the 2nd floor to be made into a twin. The house-maids we encountered were cheery and friendly. Good, spacious lift in the hotel too and as I have an electric mobility scooter I was able to park it in a windowed alcove next to our room where it wouldn't cause an obstruction.
Re breakfast, I found it odd that an earlier reviewer would complain about it, breakfast could be taken from 4:00 am onwards, there was a hot food buffet available between 6:30 am and 10:00 am and the cold buffet continued on till noon, there was plenty of coffee on tap at breakfast especially espresso! We have never stayed in a hotel where a breakfast was available from 4:00 am till noon! The efficient lady keeping her eye on the tables and food at breakfast was pleasant and friendly like all the other staff we've come across in the hotel.
The hotel is situated right next to an NCP car park which costs £16 per day to park but if requested the reception staff of the hotel will clip your ticket and when you pay to exit the car park hotel guests are charged a lower rate of £10, we had no grouse with this charge as it meant our car was secure and within easy reach of the hotel, especially as ours was in a disabled parking bay close to the entrance, the gentleman who mans the car park was very kind and helpful.
Aberdeen is a vibrant and interesting city well worth a visit and I have already recommended this hotel to friends and family thinking of visiting Aberdeen. When comparing the hotel to some we've stayed in that charged £100 per night the Ibis is way up there on value for money
