Booked rooms and dinner/drinks on the "Rock n Roll" package. Fun experience with more than enough food and drink. Excellent value for money. It all went downhill after that. The hotel was very busy with a wedding on, which left the main bar/restaurant area seriously understaffed. Ordered cocktails and waited over 30 minutes before finally cancelling most of them. Our...

Absolutely disgusted at the customer service within this establishment. Made a booking by telephone and advised the woman on the phone we had a tastecard. On arrival we waited 15 minutes to be seated. No food menus on the tables, we had to ask for them. Ordered sides which they forgot about and by the time we had received them...

Me & my partner stayed in the 'best suite' for two nights last week, and had such a wonderful time. The staff were lovely, and carried our bags to our room and gave us all the information we needed. We arrived quite late, but they still accommodated us in the restaurant, and arranged a table for us when we were...

Thank you for your comments, and I am disappointed you felt our Gluten Free breads and cakes were un-satisfactory. Give the importance of food intolerances and various dietary requests, we enlisted a specific Company called Honeybuns, and packaged a complete Gluten Free Afternoon Tea utilising their range of products. The integrity of the Gluten Free Afternoon Tea is further endorsed...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Carmelite is neatly positioned in the centre of Aberdeen's Merchant Quarter, which is adjacent to the transport hub of rail, bus, coach stations and harbour. The Merchant Quarter is the "grown up" area of the city, full of independent bars and restaurants, and surrounded by the city's 5 under-cover retail shopping centres. An historical Grade B listed building dating back to mid 1800's, Carmelite has undergone major refurbishment program over recent years, introducing a boutique environment on the ground floor of Carmelite Bar & Grill, whilst the 50 bedrooms offer a mix of "Designer" Suites and rooms on the 1st floor, "Dapper" rooms refurbished end of 2012, on the 2nd floor and comfortable standard rooms on the 3rd floor. These enable attractive rates to suit all budgets. Aberdeen is a commercial city, with limited accommodation mid-week, however weekends offer some fantastic deals making an alternative visitor experience very affordable. The 6 Suites are all different, and very quirky - from round beds in turrets, and gigantic sleigh beds, all designer rooms have cast iron baths, monsoon showers. The "Dapper" rooms have un-cluttered designs with a mix of large monsoon shower rooms, double ended steel baths (some designed with 'no taps'), and black-out window blinds. All the bespoke furniture in these rooms were made by A social Enterprise Company in Dundee, called Dovetail. The 3rd floor standard rooms, although not yet refurbished, offer clean, comfortable accommodation, still with all the usual amenities. All rooms have luxury beds made locally by Social Enterprise Aberdeen Company called Glencraft. Designer "Anatomicals" or "Keiji" bath products, 32/40" LED Samsung Freeview TVs, as well as clocks, iPhone docking stations, tea/coffee making facilities, and most rooms with iron and ironing boards. A room service menu is available during restaurant times.The ground floor also is a boutique environment, quirky with a large open plan lounge and dining area, with informal comfy sofas, a Baby Grand Piano playing at weekends, and a dining 4 Poster Bed. The comprehensive bar menu offers superb cocktails, 12 champagnes, and extensive wine and drinks as well as a bar nibbles food options. Menus cover breakfast and brunch from a "Wake Up till Noon" menu, then an A'la Carte "All Day Menu" available from 12noon through till dinner. There is a Shoppers Menu available till 5pm each day with £8 main courses, and a Market Menu options each evening.
