    Superb

    Friendly helpful staff, nice room and breakfast.

    Very central to everything.

    Parking is limited and if you get a space there is a ten pounds a night charge which most hotels give guests for free. Juices and milk for breakfast are not chilled, tea sits in flasks and is pretty stewed but staff did provide hot water and tea bags om request. Street noise to front of hotel so if you are a light sleeper maybe request room at back of hotel.

    Bed very comfy.

    Shower design not very good. Water gets on floor every time and although floor is sealed I think a fitted door on shower would be better.

    location

    Room wasn't clean. Decor was flaking on the ceilings and walls very marked. Having stayed in a few hotels in Aberdeen - this was by far the worst for the quality you would expect from a 4 star hotel. Very disappointing.

    Location was central.

    Hotel staff at reception were not helpful when my room was not cleaned in time for check in. No compensation for this despite being delayed for a wedding and others being checked in while I waited. This was made clear to me that it was because of the type of booking I had made i.e. through Booked.net I wouldn't recommend this hotel.

    Excellent city centre location, modern well equipped room, friendly and helpful staff, very good buffet breakfast.

    Car parking facilities were poor, on arrival the car park was completely full, fortunately while waiting and wondering where to park a car left the car park and I was able to secure this space. I have a suspicion that the car park was being used as free parking by non-residents (this was a Saturday afternoon) as when leaving the following morning there were suddenly lots of parking spaces available. I was easily able to drive into the car park without being challenged as to my residency status, nor did I have to let anyone know details of the vehicle I parked there. This leaves obvious oppurtunities for abuse of parking in this already restricted area.

    Good

    Check in was quick and friendly, we got an upgrade which was nice. Room was lovely

    The bar in the hotel felt more like a public convenience, there was no warmth to it at all, and certainly no atmosphere

    Loaction and facilities adequate for a short stay. Pleased that there was car parking. breakfast good

    Standard of restaurant food could have been better, but service good.

    Fabulous

    I enjoyed the excellent smoked haddock for breakfast on two of the morning and also the buffet breakfast on the other day.

    I thought the "Cafe Bar" was not in the least bit inviting, no facilities at the bar and tables spread for its primary functions breakfast and dinner.

    I had stayed here before and the deluxe rooms are lovely. I happened, unfortuately to book a standard room on this occasion and it was absolulctley awaful. I have never ever in over 30 years of travelling stayed in such a room of poor standard. Windows extremely dirty - I won't go into detail. Extremely disappointing and I have never felt this way before about any where else I have stayed - I always see the best in hotels. What can I say?

    Very good

    Your car park facilities and information that your staff had regarding it, were so poor and totally inadequate. We spent nearly 1hour driving round Aberdeen in the dark and pouring rain trying to find somewhere to park. We eventually gave up, were dropped off, and our daughter took our car to her flat. We therefore would not return to your hotel.
