“Exactly what it says on the Label!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Stayed here last Fri/Sat for the Brewdog AGM at the AECC and found the Hotel well up to standard. Check-in (& out) was slick, friendly and efficient and our room (on the 5th) had a fabulous view out to sea (beyond the car park). Furnishings in excellent condition (shades of Ikea), spotlessly clean and Air-Con worked well. My wife had no problem getting her i-pad signed in and good WiFi signal throughout our stay. Buffet breakfast was included in the price (£50 room/night) and was perfectly adequate. Superbly located for the AECC and surrounding business park, (its raison d'etre, after all) but otherwise rather remote if you're - as we were - sans-car for the (VERY Convivial !) Brewery event!. A good 20 minute bus ride into/from the city centre with a somewhat reduced service into the evening and Sundays. Great value, though, and we'd certainly go back for a similar event.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as high as possible, and on the east (seaward) side. West side looks down into car p...

My sister and I stayed here last weekend to see Dolly at the AECC next door. Room was clean, quiet, bed was comfy, shower was powerful, what more do you need. Check in and out was easy and the breakfast was very tasty and at £55 for the night and brekkie it was a bargain. Will stay here again..

The building is fairly new and has potential, but the current state of affairs leaves a lot to be wished for. The bed is extremely wobbly, giving the impression of an imminent collapse. The wifi signal strength in my 3rd floor room was so weak that FaceTime calls would drop after 20-30 seconds. The TV set would randomly switch on by itself and advertise the upsell-reeking entertainment collection. Sorry guys, you can do better.

comfortable room, food ok, overall lived up to expectations. prices in Aberdeen horrendous however that's a matter of supply and demand and not a fault with the hotel, recommended if you can get in given the situation in Aberdeen!

I had a one night stay in the Holiday Inn Express prior to an exhibition at the AECC

The hotel is good and extremely well placed for the exhibition centre next door. The AECC is out on the edge of town so there are no local restaurants and pubs close by but the hotel does have a limited menu in its bar and it is co-located with a Holiday Inn next door which has a full restaurant facility.

Rooms are spacious and clean and the room given to me was very quiet and on a high floor so the next morning there was a lovely view out over the golf course to the North Sea on a beautiful sunny morning.

It is a bit pricey for a nights accommodation but that is the major problem with Aberdeen where even poor hotels cost a fortune a consequence of the oil companies having too much money and being prepared to pay way over the odds for hotel rooms for their staff/visitors.

If it is a short stay then you could do a lot worse that the Holiday In Express especially if you are not too bothered about being in the centre of the city close to the nightlife. Car parking is free in their underground covered car park and Wi-Fi which was also free worked pretty well so decent services too.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the sea at least have some kind of view - the rooms on the city side are actually l...
