“Business trip in Aberdeen”
Reviewed 21 September 2012

The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Rooms were clean and well presented rooms, with modern bathrooms. Ideal for business trips in Aberdeen, even though it is not in the centre of town, so a car would be useful. Had meal in evening from the bar which was reasonable, there is also the option of the resturant at the holiday Inn next door as well.

We recently spent six nights at the convention center Holiday Inn Express. The staff was friendly, efficient, and helpful, room was a nice size and even had a sofa which is always a plus. The daily breakfast with cereal, fruit, pastries, eggs, etc was greatly appreciated as was the reliable Internet connection. A couple of things of which to be aware... there is little storage in the room (no drawers and the rod for hanging clothes is only a foot long). The location is great for the convention center but there are few places to eat (McDonalds or the Holiday Inn) within walking distance. We were glad we had a car for this trip.

Dear Jean P

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of your recent stay at the Holiday Inn Express Aberdeen Exhibition centre.

I am very pleased to hear that we made your stay as enjoyable as possible during your recent attendance at a conference at the Exhibition centre. The hotel is ideal as a base when attending conferences, being situated next door to the conference centre. We, as you have discovered, to the north of the city centre, but there is excellent bus connections to the city centre leaving from just outside the hotel if you did not want to drive.

Thank you once again for writing a review and I hope it is not to long before we welcome you back

Stayed here on a Saturday night after attending an event at the AECC.
Staff were helpful - finding alternative cufflinks, and remaining pleasant at a busy bar at 1am - and breakfast was buffet-style but good enough. Not a huge range for a cooked breakfast but I like endlessly refilling on coffee and toast.
The rooms were of a standard size and a good design, but the walls are incredibly thin - a neighbour's snoring and other bodily noises kept me awake, although I'm a lighter sleeper than my untroubled other half. Shower was a bit feeble, but I'm not sure this wasn't because the hotel was full.
No irons available either - only an ironing room. The iron didn't work and the other three were in use as it was a big do on at the AECC, which was a pain.
Overall though, it was only £50 and exactly what we were looking for, so would recommend it for somewhere to rest your head after a big night out.

Room Tip: On a bright day, the views towards the sea are amazing, so on the east and the higher the better - t...

Having used this hotel on a few previous occasions, it was a natural choice for a trip to Aberdeen for my daughter's graduation. Bit taken aback by cost this time - usually £50 a night including breakfast but this was £90 a night! Was it increased for graduation week??? The room was, as usual, clean and comfortable. The reception staff were helpful and polite. The breakfast was however poor. Very little choice and many items empty. No staff around to fill up empty items or even to ask for assistance. Come on, for £90 a night, this hotel could have done a lot better. I shall be thinking again next time............

Dear Romans,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay at the Holiday Inn Express Aberdeen Exhibition Centre.

I am glad to hear that you returned to us once again but I am really sorry to hear that we failed to deliver our usual breakfast standard for you. I can only apologise for this, which I can assure you was a deviation from the norm.
As regards our room rates these do tend to be more expensive Monday to Thursday and a lot more inexpensive at the weekend. The next time you intend to come and stay with us , please give our in house reservations a call and they will be able to advise you on the best rates for the days you are looking for.

Once again thank you for taking time to complete a review and look forward to welcoming you back

Yours Sincerely

Had another smashing few nights in one of my regular Aberdeen hotels. Staff always very polite and helpful, rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast is normal HIEX fayre with adequate choice of cereals, juice, bread, rolls, fruit, also hot scrambled egg (powdered ?) and sausage. More than enough for a good start to the day. Good selection of teas, coffee, chocolate as well.
Love my Priority Member welcome pack, even though it appears to be seeing signs of cut backs from previous visits.
There are some excellent weekend deals to be found at this hotel. Midweek can be more expensive but this is to be expected as many a time I have struggled to get any hotel in Aberdeen in midweek. One of the benefits of Priority Club membership is guaranteed room availability up to 72 hrs in advance.

Room Tip: Never had a problem with any of the rooms

We stayed here when we went to the Steps concert. There was also a conference on at the Centre and it was fully booked so we were worried it would be really noisy and service would be slow. We had nothing to worry about. We had a fantastic stay - service excellent, great choice for breakfast and nothing too much trouble. Would stay here again anytime.
