Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wakefield, United Kingdom397 contributions242 helpful votes
This hotel is so amazing in terms of the building style being local granite and being former university buildings. Lofty ceilings in public areas and the bedrooms, help accentuate the eye catching decor and furnishings. Lots of staff around and they're so friendly and helpful. You'll also never feel cold in this hotel! I'd a rear facing top/3rd floor room and heard nothing from other guests, just a bit of occasional background traffic noise from outside. The hotel is around a 15 minute walk from the bus/railway station interchange, while within 10 minutes you'll be at the shops. The breakfast service and choice is excellent and popular. Dinner is perhaps priced at the upper end of affordable, but many dishes come as a big portion. My only minor criticism is to do with the hospitality cupboard which is right by the bedroom door - it has no lighting of it's own, or shining towards it.

Hotel's Favourite
I booked a spa package for myself and a very good friend. The spa manager (Liam) was very responsive and friendly when I called to book. When we arrived the team were ready & waiting for us. The spa was spotless. Our therapists (Elizabeth & Kim) are both experienced and gave excellent massages and facials. The atmosphere in the relaxation area was ideal for girly chats. The team even arranged for a bottle of wine to be brought up to the area. We were there around 4 hours but felt like we had been chilling out all week! We finished off with dinner in the hotel bar area. The food was excellent and the cocktails perfectly served. Table service was great. The stand out star has to be Liam - his leadership and drive Provided a great example for his team. Collectively they ensured we had a great spa experience. Because of them we won’t go anywhere else in Aberdeen but the Sandman - for spa or hotel stays. Can’t wait til next time!

Looked lovely on arrival! Not so lovely when you go upstairs and look down on all the dust!!! Reception staff not overly friendly. Room was dirty see photos. Really claustrophobic. Coffee awful. Bar staff were brilliant. £12 per day to park your car in hotel car park with signs saying at your own risk (work that one out) this was not obvious at time of booking or when purchasing vouchers. Most certainly won’t be back.

We absolutely love the Sandman Signature Aberdeen - my old Uni building, so a lot of good memories. We also loved the SPA experience - Liam gave my partner and I an excellent massage. He was also very kind to us, warm, friendly, funny and incredibly intuitive. We look forward to our next visit. Very warm regards, Craig and Cat.

Dundee, United Kingdom1 contribution
Hotel is in a great location but on arrival our room was dirty with hairs in the bathroom including the sink as well as the pillow cases being tyre marks - maybe from the housekeeping trolley. My wife then called reception and we were then swiftly relocated to another room and this time it was clean. The best part of the stay was undoubtedly the SPA - Liam and Deniza went above and beyond throughout the SPA experience and really are assets to the hotel.

I booked this SPA hotel for myself and my sisters as a treat because we never get to see each other we all work so much so I thought I would treat us as £400 for three nights but we were all so excited to use the spa facilities and book in for a massage! As we were trying to arrange to the spa we were told that there would be a charge per person. I asked to speak to the manager and I explained that I booked this spa hotel over the phone with there trained staff but no one had informed us or any changes! The manager never once apologised but instead blamed me for not asking if there was any additional charges when no one told us about, I was a duty manager of a hotel previously and I would alwags inform my guests of any extra charges or parking (no one told me it would be £15 a night also). So the manager went to speak to the spa manager to see if we can get a discount. The spa manager was rude and argued with us and said that every hotel charges extra for spa usage but I named 6 that I had stayed at personally in Aberdeen with full spa access with no extra charge; I explained that I booked a spa hotel so we can use the facilities but the manager from the spa was the just interested in arguing with us which wasn’t the relaxation we wanted! I would d I’m very upset that I have had to pay out so much money for spa hotel and not even be able to use the sauna and steam room, it’s not like it costs them any extra for us using them! I’m outraged!!

Thanks for your review christinamS178CD, we're sorry you are outraged at our policy of charging for spa treatments. As with the 3 other hotels in the city with spa facilities, we do charge for treatments and this is made very clear on our web site where they can be booked. The £12 parking charge is also shown clearly on the web site and is of course advised to customer when they inquire. We're sorry that you feel this wasn't made clear to you.

Fantastic hotel with friendly and conscientious staff, both night and day your always met with a smile. This has now been my goto hotel whilst staying in Aberdeen. The Chop Bar is vibrant and well set out, very nice menu and fairly priced for the quality food on offer. The rooms are immaculate and spacious with a generous sized bath/shower room.
