We didn't stay in the hotel so this review only gives a view on the events/functions side of the business. We were recently guests at a wedding held in this very attractive hotel. The whole event was lovely. The hotel staff seemed very well organised. They were helpful, pleasant, easy to deal with. Everything seemed to go according to plan.... More

I had a pleasure to stay here whilst on business. It is a great hotel with a luxurious feel and with a fine food peaceful restaurant. The rooms are newly refurbished with designer-like interior, large comfortable bed and clean and mould-free bathroom. The restaurant next door serves fine food, an excellent place to relax or to bring customers in. I... More

The first thing that impressed me about this hotel was the exterior - even the car park was attractive. The room facilities were pretty good with a couple of exceptions - the shower, which was an over the bath type, had no grab handle! As an older person I really do need to be able to hold on to something... More

My sister and I visited Aberdeen recently and stayed for two nights in The Chester hotel. The hotel was lovely, however the layout is what I can only describe as quirky! Our room (number 14) was on the ground floor but was quite a trek from reception. To get to the bar and restaurant involved either a convoluted trip along... More

Good value Sunday brunch with generous portions. We went as a couple to Sunday brunch to take advantage of the deal they have (£30 for three courses). The food is high quality in a bright, airy environment. Service could be a little better.

Lovely food and excellent service. It was not cheap but you get what you pay for! We had the chateaubriand which was delicious. We stayed overnight the room had nice little touches and was very quiet. Breakfast the next day was nice too. I had muffins topped with egg. I would recommend if you want to go out for a... More

Had to visit Aberdeen for family reasons and needed somewhere to stay that was comfortable, convenient and with a good kitchen. Successful on all counts, thanks again to Kevin for sourcing the Dover Sole for us, they were delicious and much enjoyed. As a bonus we got cheerful and willing service from a nicely trained team. Our visit had the... More

Dear Marklindude, I am glad that what could have been a difficult visit to Aberdeen was made so much better by the team at the hotel. Kevin certainly will go the extra mile when it comes to quality foods, and his kitchen team are the best in Scotland (we think so anyway). I hope that when next you visit Aberdeen... More

Dear BigMac599, Thank you for the excellent review. I always get a buzz when our customers highlight particular staff members. More so this time when I saw my own name mentioned. On behalf of myself and Ngaire, it was a pleasure! I hope you will find the opportunity to visit the hotel again in the near future. Best regards Alistair... More
