Another great stay Yes it does need updating, but I prefer friendly staff and a good atmosphere. Must be staying here too often, Darren remembered what I drink. Also enjoyed the sign behind the bar "New Soft Drinks", which was placed next to the whiskys. I know this is Scotland, but I think it's pushing it to pass Whisky off... More

As approached the hotel, it does not look good from the outside and I would be surprised if they can do anything about the outside, but do not fear. The hotel is going through a refurbishment and what they have done so far is excellent. I booked in very quickly and got up graded to a very nice suite which... More

Bedrooms nice, beds comfy, bathrooms need refurbishing as very old and dirty. I put a notice on the door for cleaners not to come in so they left a bag outside with new towels and toilet roll. Rooms do need updating as very outdated such as: dark real curtains, blue photo on wall, mix of different furniture, green carpet.

I stayed here for one Saturday night in May. The hotel is next door to the Exhibition Centre and is about ten minutes from the City Centre. The refurbishment is now well underway with reception done whilst the restaurant was in the midst of being done during my visit so there was a reduced service in the bar area. The... More

Just returned from great weekend at Holiday inn. Food was really delicious we ate in the restaurant on Saturday night. Room was nice although we didn't spend too much time in it. Breakfast was good much better than holiday inn express next door. Staff were all nice and friendly. We will return hopefully very soon

Very comfortable and clean room. The bar is like sitting in a transport cafe. If you want a quiet night sleep elsewhere. It always baffles me why a hotel allows a fire door to swing shut and slam? So noisy. Sort the door out in the ground floor before room 122. Terribly noisy. Probably the same on every floor. Otherwise... More

Great location and decent parking I normally travel up to Aberdeen with a transit van about 5 times a year. I've found this hotel decent parking and good food, which is a great combination. Normally just eat in the hotel, as they're got a decent range of food. Will definitely be back.
