Stayed here for 2 night city break. Hotel located just outside city centre, found the bus service excellent to and from the hotel. Hotel is lovely, modern, clean and well appointed. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We dined in the restaurant on our first night and the food was delicious. Overall an excellent hotel for a wee city break....

Nice hotel,good facilities including a pool and steam room,sauna& jacuzzi,reasonably priced for a weekend. Clean room,standard but comfortable bed. I was there with my husband on a business trip. We only tried the basic food in the bar area-which was pleasant to sit and relax in but pretty underwhelming. Staff were friendly & we would use again.

Have stayed here a few times on business. It is a good hotel, large rooms and plenty of public space. The three course fixed price menu is excellent value. Four choices for each course if you are staying more than one night. Staff are friendly and helpful.

It was a spur of the moment decision to have a one night stopover in Aberdeen. The hotel has plenty of car parking available and a dedicated, roofed smoking area which was a bonus. The Receptionist and staff were very friendly and efficient, check in took a few minutes. The room was nice, well presented and clean with a huge...

Having stayed in Aberdeen numerous times have to say we were so surprised at finding this hotel,,and wondered why we had not stayed here before. Room was very spacious and the gentleman who worked in the bar was so attentive and had a wonderful manner. Food was great too.

We went as a family to stay over the new year. We were unimpressed with the outside of the building but were more than pleased when we went indoors. The welcome was warm, the rooms were spacious. The facilities were very good. We would stay again.

Came here in November with my boyfriend to celebrate a friends birthday. Check in was quick and efficient and our room was lovely. The bed was huge and the room had everything you would expect to have and more! We booked a room only basis so never tried any food or had breakfast, and we also never had time to...
