For the purpose of my review bias, for the last 11 years I have stayed approximately 100 nights a year in the Intercontinental / Holiday Inn Group chain.
So this was the perfect opportunity to try something different for a change.
Date of stay 20/5/13
My ongoing experience of the hotel is as follows:
1) Arrival is easy using the Sat Nav and post code address instructions.
2) On arrival at the hotel the check in staff member was extremely pleasant and friendly.
3) On arrival, it was discovered that I had booked during the busiest week in Aberdeen (oil conference week). This meant the room I had booked (a single ordinary room) had been double booked. However this was no problem and was replaced by a free Woodside cabin to the rear of the hotel, what a fantastic upgrade.
3) All area’s including the bedrooms where always well kept, tidy and clean
6) The cabin was excellent SEE the photos
7) Sadly I did not get a chance to sample breakfast as it only starts a little later than your average hotel as I had to be in the center of Aberdeen at 8.30am each day (about an hour away)
8) The evening meals, where a delight and cooked and served by people with a passion.
9) Check out, was straight forward and hassle free.
In summary the hotel scores 4/5 for a nice countryside change to my normal Holiday Inn experience.
