First impressions were, 'Oh no, what have I booked', but then appearances can be deceptive. It would appear that it's more of a transit hotel for the oil workers but don't let that put you off. If it's opulence you're after, ah-la the Hilton, then this isn't the hotel for you, but if you want something that's within budget then this is a gem. My only niggle on arrival was the (Polish?) girl made me wait until she had finished her email before attending to me - possibly a cultural thing...
The rooms are moderately furnished but quiet, clean and tidy. My bathroom had a very good standard of décor (but the provision of a just net curtain between me and the city council depot made showering something of a performance if you left the light on).
The restaurant had a limited menu and perhaps those on a diet may struggle to find something to their taste but, again, think of the target clientele. The cooked breakfast bar has slices of haggis - WONDERFUL - and sets you up for the day and the coffee is in real mugs. I'm usually a Radisson and Hilton person when I'm away for a few nights so for me this was a surprise, but a pleasant one. Congratulations Northern Hotel, you made a fan out of me.
