My wife and I stayed at the Altens for 2 nights on B&B with dinner included on the first night. The check in and check out were straight forward and uncomplicated with welcoming and pleasant front desk staff. The room was a basic double, very clean, good shower and very comfortable bed. The inclusive dinner menu choice was not particularly...

The hotel itself is great. The staff are really helpful and so lovely, ask for anything that you need including postcodes. The breakfast is awesome with heaps of options but won me over with the pikelets/scones that was awesome and ran out every morning. The elevators are large and spacious so they can accomodate all of your luggage. There is...

Generally this is quite a nice hotel, with good links to reach the city and local businesses. The trouble is the service can be either excellent or really poor. This ruins the experience. Take today for example I go into the quiet bar area for food. I ask if I need to order at the bar or can I order...

Booked this place for a weekend and was very happy. The location was absolutely perfect and it is only a 5 minute drive to the city centre. Room was very nice and clean and if we were to come back to Aberdeen we would definitely be booking a repeat stay at this hotel.

Provided a well spaced room and large king bed. Bar Restaurant had a good selection of food and quite large meals. The only thing was the main bedroom door must be quite thin because we heard everyone coming and going. But otherwise it was a lovely nights stay.

We've stayed here a few times now and never really been disappointed. This visit was no different. Great value for money, especially given some of the completely overpriced places in the City. Superbly comfy bed. Excellent breakfast.
