Hotel was nice and staff friendly! They even allowed our French bulldog to stay! Room was made fresh everyday! Few minor maintenance issues, wee bits of paint peeling! BUT nothing that would stop me from staying here again! Breakfast was delicious, was hot and looked great! Would recommend

My husband and I regularly stay in Aberdeen and always manage to get good deals. This was no exception. Friendly staff, clean room and a lovely breakfast served in a very relaxed environment. We used the hotel car park but there is plenty on street parking nearby. The hotel is only just over a mile from the City Centre so...

Stayed here two nights while visiting relatives. The room was fairly small and a bit basic (small wardrobe, desk and TV) but clean and comfortable. The bathroom is decent and panelled with faux walnut - with a larger than usual walk-in shower cubicle.The room was quiet and the bed comfortable. There is free wifi which worked well. The hotel has...

My friend I had never visited The Terrace (their restaurant) before, but we had a discount voucher, so took advantage of this. The waitress was soon at our side, with a lovely smile. We placed our drinks first and after they came we requested a straw. Quick sharp she was back with her smile and the said straws. We didn't...

Have been a few times as I live locally. The lasagna is a generous sized portion and is very tasty. My partner usually has the beef burger, which is good quality meat, large in size and nicely presented with coleslaw and fries in a little pot. 2 mains and 2 drinks usually come to around £30. Quiet, relaxed atmosphere in...

Once again had a lovely Tex Mex meal. Chicken Enchilada with spicy rice was fantastic. My friends had fajitas & they really enjoyed them. The Chili bowl was also tried & thoroughly enjoyed. Service was first class.

My experience of Aberdeen hotels is that they're generally pricey for what you get, with even regular chains well over £100 per night. I didn't expect much in the way of quality when I got a dbl for £70 per night Inc breakfast at the Great Western. But I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms aren't pristine, we had a carpet...
