The curtain in our room was broken (and was kept in place by the string that should be used to roll it up), the beds were comfortable though and the bathroom was ok too. The buffet breakfast was disappointing (no milk substitute - I'm lactose intolerant so that's a downer for me - no low sugar alternative like porridge or...

Paper thin walls meant that I could hear every word from next door's TV - through earplugs! Plus staff talking loudly outside my window at 6am and banging doors in the stairwell - made for a very poor nights sleep. Rooms don;t look like the photos. Pretty dark and dingy. High level halogen lighting makes the ambiance like a hospital...

The staff of this hotel are extremely friendly and very helpful. The customers make this place a joy to visit with many interesting characters who frequent their sports bar. The restaurant serves nothing but the very best food with their Fish a delight.

We came for Sunday lunch food was okay , but portions could be better,so we asked for extra meat to share and a few extra potatoes, but not informed we would have to pay an extra £ 5.50 rather steep,this was rather off-putting, so looks like we will have to go elsewhere for our Sunday lunch.we only discovered the extra...

Thank you very much for your feed back and the review that you promised us. I'm sorry you did not enjoy your two for one Sunday roast for £15.00 and that you think it was poor value for money.Having spoken to the chef I think £5.50 is a reasonable amount to charge for an extra four portions of gammon and...

My partner and I visited for lunch on Sunday 8th January 2017 with our baby, and it was our second time in about two years: the last time I said I would want to come back for the desserts, and... I was not disappointed! My partner had a main, steak ciabatta, which was utterly delicious, and I had a spicy...

Paid £70 per head, food was delicious was a bit disappointed as we got the bread roll a good 15 minutes before the soup and never got offered any more when the soup came and as you can see by the picture the roll was tiny. We did have to wait quite a long time between courses too, arrived at...

Stayed yesterday the welcome by Lindsey at reception was very good. Very clean and comfortable, good facilities, parking, free WiFi, and didn't have an issue with me bringing my little dog. The breakfast was delicious. I've stayed in many places in Aberdeen for more money and haven't been this nice. Will be back soon 😊

Hotel was nice and staff friendly! They even allowed our French bulldog to stay! Room was made fresh everyday! Few minor maintenance issues, wee bits of paint peeling! BUT nothing that would stop me from staying here again! Breakfast was delicious, was hot and looked great! Would recommend

My husband and I regularly stay in Aberdeen and always manage to get good deals. This was no exception. Friendly staff, clean room and a lovely breakfast served in a very relaxed environment. We used the hotel car park but there is plenty on street parking nearby. The hotel is only just over a mile from the City Centre so...

Stayed here two nights while visiting relatives. The room was fairly small and a bit basic (small wardrobe, desk and TV) but clean and comfortable. The bathroom is decent and panelled with faux walnut - with a larger than usual walk-in shower cubicle.The room was quiet and the bed comfortable. There is free wifi which worked well. The hotel has...
