Stayed here for 2 nights in Feb this year on business in the area. Overall my stay here was good, no problems encountered, and staff were on the whole friendly and polite.
Check in - I initially booked online for one night ahead of my arrival at the hotel. Check in was efficiently carried out, and I was able to request an extension of my stay to a second night the next morning with no problem. Hotel is easy to get to from the highway (I arrived by car from the ferry at Tsawassen).
Hotel corridors / decor - tidy enough, if a little dated in style. The hotel is going for that Scottish highlands look, so the thistle features frequently in the decor.
Room - Clean, tidy and smelled fresh. TV with plenty of channels to choose from (cable), coffee / tea making facilities, bed very comfy, in room safe for valuables, etc. Bathroom also clean, tidy and fresh smelling, with a small collection of toiletries available next to the sink. Plenty of towels available for me to use. Complimentary wifi access was good throughout the hotel.
Hotel bar / food - the night I arrived happened to be karaoke night, so the bar was busy and the atmosphere was friendly / enjoyable. I didn't eat any dinner there so cannot speak to the quality of that, but breakfast is a buffet / continental style, with eggs provided in a different form each morning, and toast, bagels, fruit, cereal etc. Perfectly adequate unless you're determined to have a proper cooked breakfast.
Close enough to the airport to be useful to travelers needing accommodation, although price wise it's not really that competitive in my opinion (I could have stayed at the Radisson which has a pool, weight room, lobby shop, and sits directly adjacent to the Aberdeen mall with all it's facilities for more or less the same price).
Overall then - as I said, a good stay. Comfortable, adequate accommodation for a night or 2. Personally I would look elsewhere for a longer stay, but YMMV.
