“As far as holiday inns go pretty good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

i am not a fan of the holiday inn chain as they seem so lifeless. however this one was pretty damn good really pleasant staff. good food in the restaurant and a nice little gift bag on arrival. rooms clean tidy and comfortable and within minutes of a selection of different eateries. this is a first for me to recommend a holiday inn but this one gets the thumbs up.

Chose this hotel for my wife, son and I as it had rooms suitable for myself ( I am a wheelchair user ). On arrival it appeared that we had been booked into a family room despite requesting a suitable room. Reception desk offered us a disabled persons room with an interconnecting door to another room which delighted our five year old son. Also very helpful staff when we discovered we had a punctured car tyre. Staff changed our tyre until we could go to the garage and get a new one. Very pleased with the rooms, staff and assistance at this hotel. We will most definitely come back. No complaints at all.

We stayed in a family room for a night recently and was very pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, spacious and had tea/coffee making facility. Shower was a decent size and with good water pressure. Breakfast was buffet style with cereals, yoghurts, sausages eggs, breads etc. Great base for an overnight stay while exploring the area. Staff were friendly and courteous too.

I stayed at this hotel last month for two nights while on a works course a very modern hotel very clean,nice bar reasonably priced,A few draw backs you have to pay for the interner after half an hour also you have to travel to the hotel in front to use there restraunt facilities,but overall not a bad hotel

Room Tip: Ten minutes on the bus to aberdeen centre bus stop right outside hotel.

stayed here for 5 nights in june in spite of being a new hotel did not have adequate soundproofing to indoor or out and we sleopt poorly for the first three nights due to the large number of business guests coming and going ast all hours and congregqting outside the front door unfortunately our room was just above also you had to fight your way through the smokers who did not walk down to the benc and ashtrays provided. the room itself was nice and the breakfast fine apart from the reconstituted egg. the hotel was also expensive by express standards. we did get used to the noise eventually

Room Tip: ask for one away from the front

Dear CleethorpesGtfcfan,

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 found your bedroom nice and breakfast adequate for your needs.As you have indicated the room rates are high midweek in Aberdeen. It is an exceedingly busy city midweek and room rates charged by all hotels are high due to the high demand for bedrooms in the city.The prices charged by the hotel are reflective of the rates of all similar rated hotels in the city
I am however sorry to hear that your stay was disturbed by other users of the hotel and can only apologise if you felt the soundproofing was not adequate.

Thank you once again for taking the time to write a review of your stay at the hotel.

Yours Sincerely

Jim Thomson

A new holiday inn express, that does what you would expect.
Good quality 'no frills' accommodation, located out of town.
Short drive to the airport, makes it an ideal base if returning from touring the area.

I am glad to hear that you had an enjoyable stay at the hotel and you found the location an ideal base for exploring the Aberdeen-shire countryside. Located only 3 miles from Aberdeen city centre, with excellent transportation links, makes us ideal for both countryside and city centre
