Me and my partner traveled to this hotel from Glasgow for my birthday and it was wonderful! After a long journey which took double the time it should have due to traffic the staff could not have been more welcoming!! Stayed for two nights (although never ate in the hotel) and it was a very good experience overall. The only...

Dated rooms. Breakfast very poor, overcooked lukewarm options and cold coffee. On second day I ordered an omelette from surcharge menu, this was even worse than the scrambled egg offered on the buffet. Over cooked and brick hard. Food options for evening meal not much better. Would not stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here on a myhotelbreak deal, we got a premium king room, DBB and late checkout. Everyone from the check in, leisure, restaurant and cleaners couldn't have been nicer! Our room was spacious, clean and comfy and the food was amazing! We both opted to pay £10 each extra for a steak and it was cooked...

Brilliant hotel but couldnt give it 5 out of 5 and Im not sure why. Very clean and modern hotel with a friendly welcome. Unfortunately due to a system issue, we couldnt check in when we arrived but no problems, they were happy to keep our bags while we went for a drive into Aberdeen. Came back a couple of...

Stayed here after the high rating given by viewers and they were absolutely correct ! The hotel does look severe from the outside, but it is easy to find just off the A956 main road to Aberdeen Centre. There is a local housing scheme behind and an industrial estate down the road - but this must not put you off....

Enjoyed weekend break. Rooms were clean and comfortable, staff very attentive and food was delicious. Pool area was busy but to be expected at weekends. Good base for exploring Aberdeen only 10 minutes in a taxi to town centre. Would recommend a visit.

It is a nice hotel with spacious rooms, friendly staff and good services, but to be honest I expected it to be much cleaner than it was. Dirt and dust was apparent in the walls and of course the bed cover and chairs. Free wifi has issues as well. The amazing breakfast made up for it though! Decent stay for...

This hotel is on the outskirts of Aberdeen and is ideal if you are working or meeting in Altens. The hotel is looking a little tired around the edges but is very clean with nice friendly staff. It is out of town with a 15 minute taxi (longer at peak times) ride into town. The price is a little high...
