I stayed here on a Friday night. Sleep was not something I got much of. There was live band playing until midnight (rock tribute type stuff) and this was virtually beneath our bedroom. I was not warned of this on booking and it continued until midnight. To compound this the outside smoking area was right beneath my window and smoking,...

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.

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 😊
