My husband and I regularly stay in Aberdeen and always manage to get good deals. This was no exception. Friendly staff, clean room and a lovely breakfast served in a very relaxed environment. We used the hotel car park but there is plenty on street parking nearby. The hotel is only just over a mile from the City Centre so... More

Good value for money. Comfortable room. Good breakfast - and if you like black pudding this is as good as it gets. Staff polite and attentive. Small attention needed - loo roll holder missing and toilet seat loose.

Stayed here two nights while visiting relatives. The room was fairly small and a bit basic (small wardrobe, desk and TV) but clean and comfortable. The bathroom is decent and panelled with faux walnut - with a larger than usual walk-in shower cubicle.The room was quiet and the bed comfortable. There is free wifi which worked well. The hotel has... More

My friend I had never visited The Terrace (their restaurant) before, but we had a discount voucher, so took advantage of this. The waitress was soon at our side, with a lovely smile. We placed our drinks first and after they came we requested a straw. Quick sharp she was back with her smile and the said straws. We didn't... More

Have been a few times as I live locally. The lasagna is a generous sized portion and is very tasty. My partner usually has the beef burger, which is good quality meat, large in size and nicely presented with coleslaw and fries in a little pot. 2 mains and 2 drinks usually come to around £30. Quiet, relaxed atmosphere in... More

Sorry but it did not worth it money at all!!!! The 2 bed room was very small!!!!! The breakfast was very poor and the waitress rather slow!!!! The bathroom was clean and the parking area very big!!! It was just ok but nothing more! They don't even have phones in the rooms!!!

Once again had a lovely Tex Mex meal. Chicken Enchilada with spicy rice was fantastic. My friends had fajitas & they really enjoyed them. The Chili bowl was also tried & thoroughly enjoyed. Service was first class.

My experience of Aberdeen hotels is that they're generally pricey for what you get, with even regular chains well over £100 per night. I didn't expect much in the way of quality when I got a dbl for £70 per night Inc breakfast at the Great Western. But I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms aren't pristine, we had a carpet... More
