      It's just my favorite hotel in Aberdeen. I will continue to come back. I'm so very happy it has recently been bought and will undergo a renovation. I Iove the large rooms, the traditional furnishings, the towel warmers, and the friendly, helpful staff.

      The old tube TVs. The interiors could be spruced up and updated a bit

    • Single

      Great location, friendly staff, comfortable and good restaurant.

      final bill was quite high, laundry and restaurant quite expensive.

    • Single
      5.4

      Location and helpful staff, especially in the restaurant.

      Hotel is getting 'tired' fittings (especially tv), furniture and carpets all need updating.

    • Single

      Good service, clean and a decent breakfast. Possible exception of the waiter who doesnt know the difference between French mustard and brown sauce.

      Thought that it was expensive for what it was.

    • Single
      7.4

      I thought the decor was a little outdated and 'tired' looking however the main areas including bar and restaurant were tasteful. The food was very good and well presented with the staff extremely attentive and pleasant.

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      Good location

      The room we got was fairly small and the hotel was not overly busy

    • Single
      7.4

      It was comfortable, the level of service was very good

      Room badly in need of refurbishment, wall paper frayed at corners, decor very dated.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Service from receptionist was excellent

      The service in the restaraunt was terrible, we waited 1 hour for our meal and whnen it arrived the fish was overcooked

    • Single
      10.0

      It's location is ideal being close to where I work and ideal for access to the city centre. Reasonably well priced and excellent breakfast.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Better than trip adviser reviews

    • Single
      4.0

      The Bar area and restaurant where very modern and excellent service.

      The hotel is expensive and very dated. I would say that the rooms have not seen a decorator in 30 years (very 80"s) and a total contrast with the bar and restaurant which is int he next building down the street.
