We stayed at the Cults for two nights. We were in Aberdeen attending a wedding elsewhere. Our room had been refurbished and was mainly very nice. Some of the designer touches, however, don't work too well. The closets are behind the headboard and are painted black inside. Since there is no light around there you can't see anything inside them and lots of groping results. There are high-intensity lights let into the ceiling but when you lie down on the bed they shine straight into your eyes. Minor points really. Staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was the usual instant heart attack feast.
The lobby is very small. There is an elevator marked for 'Disabled' only. Not thinking, we dragged our luggage up the stairs and nearly ended up disabled. Mistake. We used the elevator for luggage when checking out. The politically correct police did not catch us being naughty.
We came back from our wedding at midnight. The Cults had their own reception going. Right beneath the bedrooms, unfortunately. The music man wanted to entertain Dundee as well as Aberdeen and there were guests outside hootin' and hollerin'. It wrapped up at 1:00am and we got to sleep. I would suggest that you check with the hotel if they have a wedding going on. If you are at said wedding, then fine, not a problem.
Overall, a nice stay, excellent value for money, and I would not let any of this put us off going back.
