Just back from staying at the royal hotel.... And I was slightly worried after reading some of the reviews. There really was no need. The place was fine. Staff lovely and friendly. Breakfast was delicious... Plenty to choose from. Rooms basic. Only complaint was the room window didn't open... Although a fan was provided. Towels were cleaned daily, and bed... More

My wife and I visit this restaurant several times per year and generally the food is always of a high standard and the portions are of a good size. The staff are always friendly & helpful & always ask if the food is ok and because of all this, we generally leave a decent tip. However, on our visit today... More

We had a room on one of the top floors, lovely and spacious, king size bed with true bathroom (bath & shower and plenty of room) next door and our own staircase leading to a separate sitting room. Hotel staff could not have been more friendly and helpful when they learnt it was our first trip to Aberdeen visiting the... More

The reviews on TripAdvisor had me worried, but I can honestly say we enjoyed our stay from start to finish. I requested one of their quieter rooms because we stayed over the weekend but the noise was not an issue because of the thick double glazed windows. The only place we could hear the clubs was in the bathroom. For... More

We stayed for three nights for the second time in a year and will be back again. The hotel is very close to the train/ bus station and handy for all amenities. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The breakfast was good and the rooms cleaned thoroughly every day.

I'll keep this short, if the night club next door is closed its a reasonable place to stay but if the night club is open stay well clear of this place. It's paper thin Windows do nothing to keep the screeching girls and shouting males voices out. I asked for a different room but it was just as loud. I... More

We were in need of a couple of rooms in Aberdeen and I found the Royal Hotel from my laterooms app. It wasn't long before I had booked a pair of rooms here. I've always found Aberdeen hotels to be prohibitively expensive in the past because of the oil workers in the town but this night surprised me when I... More

Had lunch here with family to celebrate family birthday. Staff extremely attentive and experienced. Food amazing and lots of it. Very comfortable surroundings. I am a repeat visitor as they cater for gluten free diners with discretion.

My partner and I stayed here for two nights on a friday and saturday night. The room we got surprised us with an upstairs with couch, tele and coffee table which was a nice additional surprise. Yes, the hotel is dated but it is functional and well worth the money. The location for us was great. Near to train station/shops/bars... More
