Premier Inn Aberdeen South (Portlethen) Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Portlethen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 12, 2012

The hotel is the usual Premier Inn standard. The reception staff are friendly and the restuarant next door offers a good breakfast.
Being near Aberdeen the price is much higher than you would expect for a Premier Inn - Lenny Henry has obviously not visited there yet!

Room Tip: Ask for a room n the same building as reception

After exhausting a lot of other hotels in the city centre of Aberdeen at little notice, this was the only option. I was actually surprised, as other colleagues who were closer to Altens (where I was attending work) took longer to get there than I did from Portlethen, so straight away this hotel has a really good selling point in my opinion.
The staff were all friendly and helpful, without being pushy. I like this.
The rooms are basic, but functional with a small flatscreen TV which is decent.
There is a restaurant alongside the hotel, which has excellent value for money food.
There is also an Asda only minutes walk from the hotel should you need to pick anything up.

My one grumble, is that even although this is my second Premier Inn stay, and I have also looked at them many times in the past I am yet to find any of their advertised deals anywhere. The price of this 3 night stay was equal to a city centre "non budget" hotel I have stayed in previously. Its all in the timing I suppose.

Wonderful greeting at reception. Great size of room. Very clean and well maintained hotel. Restaurant served lovely dinner and breakfast, although a bit slow to serve dinner staff were very attentive. Would go back in a second if the need arose.

My second stay at this Premier Inn and both have been hassle free. Plenty of car parking and just off the A90 means its only ten minutes into the city centre.

Check in was a breeze and the room was clean and well maintained with no disturbances. Breakfast in the morning was good value for money and sets you up for the day.

Room Tip: The main building is best.

Stayed for three nights with my family. Lovely clean and comfortable room, quiet and good beds. Excellent value for money. The breakfast was very good as it had something for everyone- I am vegan and they had soya milk, great choice of fruit, cereals, cooked breakfast, etc. My family are non-vegan and enjoyed their breakfast. The staff are friendly and very helpful. I would stay here again.

Stayed here for one night and could not fault it. Stayed in a premier inn before and they are excellent value for money. I would gladly stay at this or any other Premier inn in the future as they, in my opinion, are worth every penny.
