Spent one night here. Room very comfortable, location excellent, limited parking in hotel but street and multi storey available. Quite noisy location but we were luckily in a rear room so worth asking for one if available.

Stayed for 2 nights over the weekend. Great location for city centre and has its own car park (very limited spaces). Rooms clean and bright. Breakfast wasn't the best but what there was, was well stocked

Many thanks for your review Daddycogs, we're delighted you enjoyed your visit. If you don't manage to grab a space in our car park next time, there's a very handy multi-storey just 100 yards further down the road. Hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Murray Todd General Manager More

We chose this hotel based on its location, so you could say it was our own fault... We were in Aberdeen for a friend's birthday party and wanted somewhere near the restaurant (Howies on Chapel St. definitely worth a visit) - we didn't have time to see much of the city, we had an early start back home the next...

Thank you very much for your comprehensive and informative review, I'm very sorry your stay was disturbed by some noise from the surrounding area. Our central location right in the heart of Aberdeen is without doubt one of the hotel's greatest assets. Unfortunately, this does go hand in hand with the fact that the city centre can be a little...

We spent one night in the hotel last night. Reception Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room and bathroom were very clean. The only downside was the noise from the Bakery opposite, as it opened late at night until early in the morning. Lots of noise from the people who had obviously come from pubs and clubs. Room was very... More

Many thanks for your comments smudge780, glad you liked our central location. Apologies that you were disturbed by some noise from the nearby streets, it's a regrettable by-product of being located right in the centre of the city.

Stayed in the hotel with my husband and teenage son for a birthday celebration. Great price for the location. Reception staff polite and helpful. Room was clean and perfect temperature. Bed was on the soft side, which is just a personal preference. We were in a room at the back so didn't hear any noise from the street. Only disappointment... More

Many thanks for your feedback scotsbluebell123 Whilst we're delighted you enjoyed your stay overall and considered the hotel great value for money, please do accept my apologies for the congestion at breakfast. Occasionally the staff are taken by surprise with sheer volume, we are implementing new procedures to combat this. Kind regards Murray Todd General Manager More

The hotel is ideally located just off Union Street, which is the cities main area for shops, restaurants and bars. My trip was for 2 nights and I wasn't disappointed, the room was excellent and hard to fault. The only downside the food provided for breakfast wasn't of the highest quality.

The location makes this hotel perfect for a weekend in the city. The rooms are nice but basic for a 3 star hotel but the point to staying here is it is centered perfectly near Union Street. I can easily walk to all the places I wish to visit. The free wifi and breakfast are a nice bonus. There is... More

Clean, comfy, good continental breakfast. Staff was friendly, though the manager was reprimanding an employee in front of us as we checked out. Rooms were clean and fairly roomy. The location is close to the Main Street where you can find lots of restaurants and shops.
