Fabulous 8.6 From 581 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great place for exploring the area
Have stayed here before to visit family and will do so again
Carolyn, gb3 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Best hotel south of Aberdeen
I stay here quite often as it’s one of only a few hotels South of the city. The rooms are spacious and some have been refurbished, the others can be a bit worn out. The bar food is quite good, but in my opinion very expensive for what it is. Breakfast is excellent, BUT don’t book it with the room, as the hotel will sell it you at nearly half the Hotel.Com price of £18 !!!!! Ouch.
David, gb1 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Spacious and comfortable
The room was spacious, and the beds were very comfortable. The shower didnt look very fancy, but it was amazing! I would definitely stay here again.
Gail, gb2 night trip with friends
Poor 2.0
worst hotel ever! Awful staff and very dirty
The windows in the room look so dirty as if they’ve never been cleaned. We were told the pool was full and had to wait, The pool is tiny hardly anyone there. We reported a domestic on our floor and nothing was done. We were awakened by workmen at 6.30am on a Sunday banging till almost 10am, receptionist said someone was stuck in a room. Laughable as the rooms have phones and it was definitely a hammer. Our room was the so far from the lift my children thought we would never get there. Carpet was disgusting and needed a hoover and clean, whole room needed a clean. No changing rooms in swimming area, just awful. You couldn’t pay me to stay there. Staff were really unhelpful even when I asked for complaints to be made.

Very good 8.0
Adequate with nice staff
We stay in Aberdeen a lot and thought we would give this a try. It's a large not pretty looking building however reception staff were lovely on arrival. We had a nice big room. Facilities all OK a bit tired though. Leisure facilities had a family allowing really small kids in sauna and steam room and jacuzzi and there is nowhere to sit. Breakfast was better than OK. Staff again were very pleasant. All in all I would return at the right price. If you're just looking for somewhere to stay it does a decent job. It's not my first choice. It could be doing with an upgrade however the market place in Aberdeen has probably been very tricky over the past few years.
