Very clean everywhere in this hotel. Room was just a single but spotless and very comfortable. Didn't have anything to eat as it was a quick overnight stay but would be happy to stay here again. Good selection of room dining if needed, and also good prices, especially as it's in Aberdeen.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 November 2016

There was nothing about this hotel that I can complain about. It is too close to the train station, where the taxi's drivers will whinge at the short fare. Though if you have lots of luggage, and tired from your journey, you will need a car to get up the hill. That's the only down side. The features of this...

Stayed for a few nights during a business trip. Quaint property, very British/Scottish, lots of character. Location is good, plenty of pubs and restaurants within walking distance. The small hotel bar is decent and friendly (with Brewdog Punk IPA on tap), serves lunch and dinner, and is also the location of the breakfast buffet. The only meal I took here...

This hotel is a perfect location for a city break in Aberdeen. Our room was enormous, modern and very clean. Sadly the breakfast was not a good experience. We had to wait 10 minutes for a table. There were plenty of free tables but just not cleared. A couple came in after us but got shown straight to a table...

Myself and four friends booked a table for a pre theatre matinee lunch yesterday. Two were seated at our table and served drinks prior to the rest of us arriving for 1.30pm, we then ordered a further three drinks which took rather a long time to arrive - this should have set alarm bells ringing. After another long wait we...

When you book a single room here, everything is single sized. Bed, wardrobe, bathroom, shower etc. It is the first room I have stayed in where there is more room to dry yourself inside the small shower unit than getting out of the shower. Sleep quality was good and the more internal room I had was very quiete. Customer service...

Spent a night here at the weekend. Nothing really bad to say just a average place to stay. Quite small room and basic. Only few things did bother us but no big deal. There was only one plug socket in our room which was not ideal for using electronic items and charging mobiles during the night. The bathroom had no...
