Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Always stay here - best value for money and very convenient for theatres, clubs, restaurants etc. Only complaint - TV in the room seemed to have its internal clock set about 12 hours earlier than the actual time - meaning that every time you wanted to change channel, you had to scroll through the whole TV guide to get where you wanted ! . . . Little point I know but it needed sorting ( we did ask a couple of times for it to be sorted out - and also when we checked out so hopefully it was just an issue in our room). Otherwise, great value for money, clean, quiet and a great breakfast selection.

This is as a brilliant find. I was going with my dad to the Spectra festival and wanted somewhere central, it was less than 10 away from the festival beginning in union terrace gardens. The staff were lovely from start to finish. The room was a great size for two people and the shower was one if the best I’ve had. The breakfast was really fresh, tasty and so much choice. This was great value for money (best price in town) would definitely recommend and come back to.

The pre-arrival emails set modest expectations. While initial parking options seemed limited, we found a convenient spot at an adjacent NCP for £18. On arrival, we discovered there was free onsite parking—a pleasant surprise. A subsequent email hinted at a restrained breakfast with only 4 options. However, reality exceeded expectations with a buffet of 7 hot, tasty choices and an extensive continental selection, including porridge. Jules particularly savored the freshly made croissants, deeming them "delectable" and a compelling reason to return. The room, adorned in 1980s dark blue with angular cutouts reminiscent of a Miami Vice nightclub, showcased a comfortable bed and a powerful shower. Throughout our stay, the staff's warmth added to the overall positive experience.

Great location, easy checkin. Room very clean and a sofa to sit on. TV okay and great location for the City. (Art Gallery 10 mins). Breakfast is very good and a very good Italian at the end of the street “Amore”. Reception have 10% discount vouchers for Amore, but unfortunately they did not avail us of them. We came from the Airport by Taxi , about 20 mins and £25.

The staff are fabulous and the service is always with a smile. The reception is welcoming and all staff can't do enough for you. Loved the breakfast you can have it in peace and staff are always at hand if you need anything. The room is spacious and adequate pillows and cleaning is done to a high standard. You do get a good night's sleep and you feel cozy and at home. Everytime I run out of coffee etc I am replenished by the smiling staff. I would recommend the hotel to anyone. It is close to the shopping street, takeaways and other food outlets are close. Buses are easy to catch and you return back to the hotel where you know its warm and the showers are good. They provide an iron, ironing board hair dryer and above all the hotel is welcoming. Checking out is easy and the member of staff on reception this morning was so helpful. I was allowed to keep my luggage in a safe area and use the lounge. I was offered a coffee and what else can you ask for. To everyone at The Hotel, thank you for all that you do. Keep it up and we will see you again, soon. 😀😀😀

Avoid this hotel until it gets a much needed make over and the house keepers get trained on how to clean a room properly. Hairs found on bathroom floor, shower glass had lots of stains all of it and worst of all I found stains on both bath towels in my room. First towel had big dirty water marks on it like it had been used and hung back up on the rail and when I went to use the other towel in my room I was shocked to find multiple blood stains on it. My room also never had a sofa bed in it despite booking a 'Double Bed with Sofa Bed' room. All I had was a small pathetic dining chair in the corner of my room. My 'hot' breakfast in the morning was also luke warm at best and went cold very quickly. Overall a very disapointing experience, can't say I will ever return to this branch or chain again after this.

No heating the whole stay that we were here. Complained twice and still nothing was done about it. Thankfully we had a thick duvet at night or we would not have been able to sleep here overnight. Not impressed.
