Perfect for our group, good standard, central location. Very good beds and sleeping. Not the best breakfast, but good enough. Nice bar with helpful staff where we could meet before going out or when we returned after a trip in the city.

Very large rooms (deluxe), tastefully decorated. Comfortable beds. Parking at the rear of the hotel was free. Location within comfortable walking distance of shops and eateries. Good value for money (noting we didn't have breakfast included).

Stayed overnight on a visit to the theatre. Some of the lovely personal touches such as robes and slippers now have to be purchased. The complimentary toiletries were not of the same standard. The tea and coffee facilities were very sparse. (Only 2 decaf coffees left in room; no ordinary at all). The bathroom door did not close properly without... More

Very odd room. Uneven floor. Centrally located hotel makes it ideal for city stopover. Only slept there so difficult to comment on much. Picked up key. Dropped bag. Went out. Returned. Slept. Left. Checked out.

Room was for the most part comfortable. Had to adjust to cultural differences such as no air conditioning nor wash cloths, opened the windows for fresh air but cooling did not occur until the middle of the night. Front desk staff was friendly.

Booked a room here as I was in Aberdeen for a friend's leaving party. Room was cheap enough and as I was travelling alone I booked a single room. When I arrived at the hotel I was greeted by a really friendly woman on the desk who chatted away while she got my room sorted. At this point another couple... More

The location of the hotel is good. It is about 10 minutes away from the main station. From our room, we had a lovely view at a park. Unfortunately, the windows were in need of a cleaning, spoiling the view. Further, the street was loud during the night. The breakfast is normal scotish breakfast.

We had booked a table for afternoon tea and were both looking forward to a nice relaxed afternoon. On arrival we were told that there were no seats in the bistro and we were to sit in the bar. This was not ideal as the table was very low and not meant for dining. The waitress came to take our... More

This is a beautiful traditional hotel. Our room was a decent size and lovely. The location of the hotel was perfect to be able to explore the city center on foot.
