    comfortable & friendly. Just 15 minutes from airport. Perfect pool and gym after a day work. Great staff and good breakfast. I did'nt try the restaurant but it looks coozy . Privacy and silence during the night.

    Horrible exterior to the hotel, but first class inside. Comfortable rooms, great food particularly breakfast and efficient friendly staff. Can not fault anything. Handily place for easy access to Aberdeen and the main routes north and south. Will visit again.

    A couple of miles out of the centre of Aberdeen which costs about £10 in a taxi. Excellent food and facilities. Nice size rooms and very clean. Good size gym and pool. Friendly and helpful staff. Would stay again.

    Typical business hotel with a good range of facilities, although the location is ideal for the industrial estates and business area surrounding the hotel, unfortunately nothing else in the way of nearby attractions.
