My first stay in Aberdeen was marked primarily by my shock at the price of hotels here. One of the few places that makes London hotels look cheap... But the Copthorne met my threshold price and looked ok, despite the mediocre reviews. And it is ok - the people are nice, the decor is dated but homey, room was reasonably equipped and had a nice overlook of a local church, and the hotel is close to town. One real negative for a business traveller is the terrible wireless internet service. I almost walked to Starbucks in the middle of the night after spending far too long trying to get a consistent connection that didn't kick me out every 2 minutes. It was very frustrating and the well-intentioned staff were unable to correct it. It's been the only hotel this year at which I've had an issue (and I'm writing this review from India).
Would I stay here again? Not likely unless I was convinced that this problem was solved. Unfortunately, in my business I can't put up with a lack of internet service.
