Great hotel. Short walk to the city centre or Duthie Park with its lovely winter garden. Free parking on site which can fill up in the evening if you check in then as it has a good restaurant and bar on site. Parking is fine in the side streets though. We just moved our car into the car park next... More

We were there for two nights. Really good breakfast comes with the room. Very nice pub, restaurant and terrace attached. The room was a good size, and very clean. They were able to accommodate us arriving a bit early. They were helpful in obtaining taxi, but were a bit slow with requests. Service in both the pub and restaurant was... More

The stay was very good. Room was a good size. Clean very clean. The party room was great too. Will stay again! The staff was very helpful and nice. Room price isn't expensive either I'd say average price. I'd give 9/10

I usually don't give advises onTA, but this time I feel I need to. I have booked my room thru Expedia and I got the smallest single room in the attic, with a view on a wall... Even if its clean, and personnel is nice, I have spends nights elsewhere for a far better price. Nothing like the pictures posted... More

Great hotel, great price and breakfast was amazing! The only downfall I would say is that the room was very very hot at night and it was pretty cold outside so wouldn't have liked to stay there on a warm night. The room was not a bad size and it had a big TV and they also provided you with... More

This hotel was fine. Plus points...parking on-site, staff very nice, good breakfast, walking distance to City Centre. Minus points: walls very thin, heard everyone outside from bar for a smoke, room ok, nothing fancy. Taking everything into account would probably stay again but try and get a quieter room if there is one. Good price for a City hotel though.

I was upgraded on arrival to a nice, bright double en suite room with great WiFi, TV, tea, coffee etc. A bit noisy from other rooms but had a comfortable sleep. Breakfast was good with plenty of continental choices. The sports bar was great for watching the rugby.
