Good hotel, great breakfast buffet
Good business hotel with excellent breakfast
My wife, eight year old daughter and I stayed here on a Thursday night. The room was huge with large beds for us, the rate was reasonable for a weekday night, dinner in the bar was ok and breakfast buffet was excellent. The location is near the main road into Aberdeen, not the best if you want to walk anywhere but fine if you use car or taxi. We really liked the hotel.

A lovely hotel with great staff and a friendly out
Large rooms, great breakfast and high speed internet.
A lovely relaxing stay in a clean fresh hotel. Bright and airy rooms, great breakfast selection, high speed internet. Rooms are quite expensive and bottles water in the exec rooms should be cascaded down to other rooms as they are almost as expensive.

Great Hotel in ideal location
Comfort of rooms, free upgrade, great spa facilites
Arrived at hotel well past the 2pm check-in time but room was not ready. However staff gave us a free upgrade to executive suite which was very impressive. Spa facilties excellent, clean rooms, clean hotel. Breakfast first class but bar meals pricey and we had to wait some time for this to be served. Would use this hotel again.

Perfect for the Purpose
Leisure Facilities
Required a one night stay whilst in Aberdeen. Room upgrade. Very spacious with bathrobe and slippers. Compilmentary water coffee and tea. The hotel is close to a busy roundabout so quite noisy. Edge of town location but buses available. Adequate breakfast.had to use own bread as no gluten free. Strong smell in foyer so avoided this area.

Average hotel
Had a gym, decent bar with friendly staff
stayed here in the middle of march for one night. the hotel itself is located just outside of aberdeen city centre, about a ten minute taxi journey. the staff at reception, serving food and in the hotel bar were all friendly and helpful. the room i was in was on the 3rd floor and was a decent enough size. for some reason the room was abnormally warm and when i got there the window had been left open, but even this didn't help. i wasn't able to turn down the temperature on a themorstat and because of that it was pretty warm all night. the hairdryer in the bathroom was broken and the iron in the room was probably the worst iron i've ever used in my life.
