Reviewed July 16, 2014

You get what you expect from a premier inn. Clean hotel, comfy bed and basic facilities. Room was very clean. Price was reasonable. Did have disruption the one night by noisy guests and on leaving the staff asked if we had a good night stay, mentioned about disruption and they refunded room for that night without hassle. Staff were friendly on entering and leaving hotel. Pub next door is fine for a cheap meal or drink.

As it says. Pretty basic but that's all I was looking for. Close to aberdeen and just off the motorway. The mains of balquharn next door is ideal for a bite to eat after work. Just another premier Inn though. Rooms clean and tidy and has all the basics

This is a lovely modern hotel attached to a Brewers Fayre. It's only a 10-15 minute drive into Aberdeen City Centre, so close enough for a without having to pay extra for the City and struggling for avaiavailability in the Oil Capital! The meal deal is great value, and the quality of the food is great.

the hotel was very fresh modern and very clean at all times enjoyable stay, comfortable and relaxing rooms. Not much to complain about only small thing, I felt the room was a little dark could of done with a main light rather than just lamps apart from that all good.

Generally just ok.
Room rate - expensive
Food - unimaginitive and expensive
Rooms - temperature was too high and no way to cool the room. Noisy with doors banging through the night. No towels one day.

We stayed here for three nights when visiting family. As a wheelchair user I wanted to have the ability to wash daily, which is not possible at the family that I was visiting. I would say first of all that every member of staff I encountered was friendly, polite and helpful too.
When I got into my bedroom there was an obvious line of fag ash on the inside window sill - underneath the window sticker saying Smoking is prohibited inside the premises. We told the lady at reception and it was all taken away with no fuss.
The bedroom was a typical Premier Inn disabled room; it had a bath where a shower is a bit easier for me. I managed the bath fine every day but I would warn people to mind the soap dish, I have a cracker of a bruise where I hit my arm of it. I think there could have been another vertical grab rail on the wall by the shower to make get in and out the bath a bit easier - I had to make do with the shower rail instead.
When I stayed here Aberdeen was having absolutely gorgeous weather, so very hot. My room was at the front of the hotel where everybody has a fag. Whenever I opened my window for air I invariably got a whole lot of cigarette smoke coming in. I think either a smoking shelter further away from the front of the hotel or the rooms further away. It wasn’t always the quietest at night; I could hear people most nights.
On the whole the breakfasts were good. I enjoyed muesli and toast, where my mum enjoyed her cooked breakfast. My aunty had cereal and the fruit compote unfortunately it was still defrosting and not the most pleasant to eat. On the final day I was bored with muesli and opted for Coco Pops. These were in a dispense machine with the Bran Flakes and Corn Flakes, I think they had been opened for quite a while they were soft.
The bar has a soft play area and a playground too. We took my nephew and niece there one day, they always really like it - they are regulars. They have a disabled toilet in the pub/play area which is very good; there are toilet seats adaptations for toddler bottoms and a step too.
I think the hotel is best suited for people who only stay fleetingly for one night. The three nights was pushing it.
The staff were very good I must say again, I don’t want it to look as if it’s all bad. I have had much better Premier Inn experiences at other hotels in the chain.

Room Tip: Ask where your room would be and try to get the back of the hotel, should be quieter and less smoke...

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay at our hotel. At Premier Inn we always strive to provide customers with everything they need to have a comfortable stay, and apologise that on this occasion it did not provide what you required. Some of the Premeier Inn sites are equiped with full disabled facilities, including wet rooms, though some of the older sites still need updating. We do however state the available faclities on our website and would advise customers to contact the hotel to check availability.
Please be assured all your comments have been noted and will be followed up with the team.
The feedback regarding the retaurant will be passed on their Management Team.
Your feedback is very much appreciated and we hope to welcome you back to Premier Inn in the near future.
