“Excellent weekend stay”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

Booked to stay three nights at this Holiday Inn Express over a weekend to explore the part of scotland to the north of Aberdeen and the location of this hotel was perfect for this! Also well located for a shopping trip as major shopping centres are only a short drive into the centre.

Hotel has ample parking and can have no complaints about anything to do with the hotel. Room was spotless and bathroom in perfect condition. Had a great sea view with our room and id advise anyone staying to ask for this to really make their stay. Rooms must also be well insulated as had 3 nights without a single disturbance and being a light sleeper that is a joy!

Breakfast was what you come to expect from a Holiday Inn Express - no complaints. If looking for an evening meal there is plenty of choice just 5 mins drive along the Esplanade at the Fun Beach.

Excellent stay and will be recommending this hotel to friends and family.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view!

It's a holiday Inn, but staff were good and the rooms were comfy, plus ideal lcoation if you need to be at the AECC, it's a 60 second walk at most, with plenty of parking.

Additional bonus if you have a car is 'The Cock & Bull' restaurant at Balmedie is just 6 miles up the road and really worth the effort.

Room was spotless and efficiently laid out and designed. If travelling on business or passing through, this has all you neeed. Near sea so wind noise from windows but curtains damped the sound down.
Good breakfast but crowded at peak business times. Convenient for most of Aberdeen but away from bustle of centre.

Room Tip: Standard format.

I stayed here on the 10th June with my son as he was heading overseas on a school trip at 3am! the following morning. On check in they noticed that we had accidentally booked for the 1st July rather than the 10th June but this was no problem. I was told that the Manager would look into honouring our £50 room + breakfast (Trivago) in the morning. The room itself was spot on for what we needed and bathroom etc was immaculate. Only little niggle was that the room service lady made allot of noise in the lobby. I guess this was to make sure everyone was awake.... On check out I explained my error with the Manager and he was kind enough to keep the bill at £50 instead of £84. He seemed to be interested in you as the customer rather than other hotels I have visited in my time. We will definitely be back to Holiday Inn Express at the AECC soon! Well worth it!

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor and it was fine

Very clean rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are kinda small. The only negative is you have to pay for the internet, and its not cheap.

This hotel is well placed for the Exhibition Centre but as such it is quite a long way from any other signs of life. I was given a disabled room with an adjoining door and knowing that I am a very light sleeper I asked if they had any other rooms available, they did not. That night was fine but the following night I was kept awake but a lady in the next room on the phone until 1am, I did ring reception to ask if they had any ear plugs, they did not and they didn't offer to do anything about the disturbance. The real problem was down to the adjoining door. I asked again the next morning if I could move rooms but was advised again nothing was available. I checked-out the next day.
Breakfast was self-serve, the selection was fine but the toast machines completely rubbish. There is not restaurant at the Holiday Inn Express, you can walk round to the Holiday Inn which I believe does have a restaurant or there are vending machines with snacks.
I won't stay at the Holiday Inn Express again just because of the noise in the room.

I am sorry to hear that your stay was disturbed due to the noise from the adjoining room and that we were unable to rectify this situation to your satisfaction during your stay.

Stayed here for the second time while attending an exhibition at the neighbouring AECC which is literally a stones throw away. Although a bit on the pricy side for a Holiday Inn Express - £180 per night - it is ideal for visiting the arena, the staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. One word of warning there are no restaurants in the area - the closest is in the Holiday Inn next door where prices are sky high and the service not a patch on its Express cousin! Even had a sea view over the car park!
