I booked an overnight stay for my partner and I. We had a great time. Our room was an executive King room - bed was huge and very comfortable. Hotel was really nice the only thing I would say was some of the staff in the bar were quite arrogant! My partner had ordered drinks and the women just stared... More

Went there for a weekend break only to find out it has changed owners and no longer under Thistle. We stay here several times a year and was disappointed with room we were given. Normally have a king size bed but was resigned to a double bed. We spoke to reception but not much help. When we arrived we had... More

Nice enough but nothing special given its four star rating. rooms were comfortable enough. Spa ok. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast disappointing. Very little choice particularly if you want something healthy. An average hotel saved by superb staff.

After searching online for a good deal on a mini break, we opted for here. Its a five minute car journey to the city centre or a 30 minute leisurely stroll. On arrival at the outside, my initial thought was oh dear.......very brown and tired looking, but the weather can be harsh in Aberdeen so that probably hasn't helped over... More

We stayed for a romantic 1night just as a wee break! On arrival the receptionist was happy enough to let us in our room early. The room was of good quality and spotless. Later on we went to try out the pool and jacuzzi which was very relaxing and staff were very friendly! We had drinks in the bar later... More

Good weekend stay, stayed bed breakfast and evening meal. Had our room upgraded as it was our anniversary. Staff very polite and helpful, service throughout good. Only down side as we stayed 3 nights we exhausted the choices available on the all inclusive menu, would have been nice to have more variation. But overall a very enjoyable stay. Good night's...

Spent two nights here with my partner and was really pleased with the standard of accommodation. We had a large king room which was spotless, not too hot and very quiet (my biggest wish in a hotel). We ate in the restaurant one night and the food and service was excellent. Breakfast was slightly disappointing as many items had not... More
