Treated myself and two children (age 16 and 9) to a weekend break at the Thistle Altens in Aberdeen. On arriving at the hotel our first impression was "Oh dear", but on entering the hotel we were all completely taken aback. The hotel foyer is stunning, the girl on the reception was new but very pleasant and answered my query regarding children being allowed into the restaurant and bar area. On arrival we were told we had received a complimentary upgrade (I had booked the Delux Double Double) to an Executive Double Double. The room was fantastic, huge to say the least with two big double beds, sitting area, plasma tv on the wall. Dressing area and beautiful bathroom with all toiletries included. The room was lovely and warm and heating could be adjusted to suit our needs. We went to the pool which was lovely, sauna and steam room and jacuzzi were very relaxing. We did not eat in the restaurant as looked at the menu and found it to be a bit pricey (£6 for a bowl of soup!!) and children were not allowed in after 8pm!! Sunday morning breakfast was fantastic, full hot and cold buffet and help yourself as much as you like. Staff were all very pleasant. Only downside I would say is children now allowed in bar after 8pm so if you want a drink after this it would have to be room service (charge of £5). Will most definitely be going back with my boyfriend for a weekend break.
