Location bang on for city centre shopping or nightlife in Aberdeen. Not aware of any parking deals if bringing the car and hotel has no parking, so could be tricky, however I'd check first. The bar and restaurant here are smart enough and quirky, have been here before and had a good time whilst the piano was being used by... More

My children booked this as a surprise birthday party for me. Function room was not ready from a previous party, guests ended up having to help staff serve teas and coffees. The bar had no diet coke. The staff did their best but were completely overwhelmed and unable to do the job in an adequate manner. The worst part was... More

Ideal location, a few moments from both bus and train stations. 2nd floor room pleasant and modern, with a pristine shower room, and with complimentary ear plugs (see later). The room was cool, verging on cold (October in Scotland) and the radiator slow to heat but the duty manager kindly supplied a fan heater, explaining that - as a listed... More

Long awaited Xmas Night out was utterly disappointing, function room cancelled, all dressed up to sit in the bar with no entertainment, mix ups with bills, hotel cold, rude staff at breakfast, 20 mins just to get a tepid coffee, very very dissappointing

Stayed for a girly weekend and was extremely disappointed. We had a package booked for a 1920s night, what we booked was not what we got. We should have had our own room with a singer and other things that tie in with the theme instead we were in the middle of the main room with other guest with no... More

I was really glad to stay at the Carmelite. They have an excellent location in the city center. The rooms are great: comfy bed, nice decoration, products in the bathroom, great choice of TV channels etc... I recommend this hotel in Aberdeen!

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. There are two event rooms, Library and Balmoral for delegates up to 120, private dining to 50 diners, and Mad Hatter Tea Parties from 20 people. Intoxicating Afternoon Teas are a specialty, as well as Rock & Roll Parties in the 4 Poster Bed. Free wi-fi is available throughout the building, with a PC available for guests' use in the library. ... more   less
