“A bit scary and very noisy”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

I stayed at the Globe Inn on a Tuesday night. The scary part was due to being told when i came in 'Oh, I knew it was you because you are the only female staying tonight,' and then being promptly rushed through fire exit options as there was no staff through the night.
I had rung prior to arriving to check noise levels and was reassured it was quiet through the week despite being a pub.
However, the bass of the music in the pub and a bit of background noise kept me awake until midnight. A rowdy group of people arrived at about 23:30 and were noisy in and out of the pub until just before 01:00.
The breakfast, left in the room, was not great especially given the £119 we had paid. There were a few choices of cereal, milk, a yoghurt, two pieces of fruit and a roll wrapped in cling film in the fridge with a sticker saying 'Thurs' on it (this was Tues-Wed).
The cup I used was chipped, the bath had a bit of scum on it. All in all, not a nice experience at all.

Room Tip: IF you do go, avoid the front of the building that looks on to the road.

The rooms were reasonable at the price. There is no lift and some rooms are on second floor. Breakfast was fair. We didn't eat here, so can't comment on dinner. Good live music on Friday nights when bar gets crowded.

After having some great nights in the bar at the Globe I was happy to find there was a room at a very good price on Saturday as myself and my parter were at a wedding in Aberdeen. Unfortunately on the day, only an hour or so before I was to check in I received a phone call to say they had overbooked and I no longer had a room yet I booked a week in advance for this. I understand these things can happen but what was really terrible was that all I was offered was 20% off a meal if I was to come by over the next couple of weeks. Shocking

Stayed at the Globe several times in the past due to its superb location and convenience for me when I come to Aberdeen. Great bar downstairs with nice food at reasonable prices. Staff are always helpful and attentive.

The rooms have recently been refurbished and it was long overdue. Rooms are clean, nicely decorated and have everything you will need - hair dryer, iron and ironing board, wifi, tv, even a small fridge and iPod Dock!

Would definitely recommend to others!

First off, I didn't pay for this room - it was a last minute business stopover so my work booked and paid for it. As it was a last minute booking during Oil Week in Aberdeen, I would presume it was ridiculously expensive but I can't confirm that. From checking their normal prices, a single occupancy room is £94 and double occupancy is £99.

The inn is in a great location. You are literally a two minute walk from the centre of Union Street but far enough away that there isn't too much noise or trouble.

The room was small but clean and adequate. It would have been cramped for a couple I think - there isn't a lot of room outside of your double bed - but I was there alone and it was absolutely fine. Bed was spotless and comfy and there were plenty of towels and a hot shower. Everything you need.

I ate at the inn itself downstairs and the food was great. Good service and excellent food at very reasonable prices. I'd recommend trying it out if you are staying overnight.

Overall, a nice wee place to stay with a great location.

Nice friendly pub in the heart of the city, has a few rooms above the pub. I thought it might be noisy, but it wasn't, even although my room was above the main pub door. Continental breakfast left on tray outside room door was quite adequate.

Booked a night away from home to this place, thought it was fab. Just off union street, in a lovely pub, bedrooms over it. Easy check-in, great room, comfy bed, had a fab band on at night, the sopranos, nice to have adults enjoying themselves in a good ambience, hard working staff managed to keep up with my vodka needs , would totally recommend, look forward to going back.
