Lauren who I got on the phone couldn't have been more helpful she wasn't only helpful but her bubbly personality on the phone was a breath of fresh air !!!!! She offered me a 360 booth for our party, but I'd mentioned I'd seen the rocking four poster...

We stayed at Carmelite after not so positive experience with other hotels in Scotland. What a lovely surprise. We booked Nose Bull Suite. Room was cool with many design details that are maybe not so important at the first place but they make impression of a place where somebody cares. A lots of small things that make you happy. Tea,...

Absolutely stunning hotel, dining area was gorgeous, room was awesome with some great touches but overall disappointed by noise, and in turn lack of sleep. Hotel is located on a street with a busy bar across the road. No double glazing so you can hear everyone passing on street as well as drinkers in the place opposite. Carmelite itself has...

We stayed here on a Saturday night as part of a Livingsocial deal, with breakfast included. Had I paid full price for this I would have to say I would have been disappointed. We were given what is called a "Dapper room" which is really just the standard basic room. It was a small room, though clean and tidy so...

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.
