“Pleasant accommodation close to city with parking”
Reviewed 7 December 2010

Pleasant hotel in convenient location just to the north of the city centre. The rooms are tasteful and modern with up to date ensuite. There is plenty of free parking however the entrance is not obvious. Reception is at level 1 and if you work it out you can drive up a ramp and park at reception level. Reception was efficient and you could get 1hrs free wifi per day (charge for longer). I stayed a few nights. When busy the breakfast self service area is bursting at the seams and food supply struggles to meet demand. At quieter times all works well. The rooms have connecting doors and noise insulation here is not good. One night a child with a whistle, another the groaning of an amorous couple - fortunately that did not last as long as the whistling. The hotel is probably too far from the city centre to contemplate walking, however the park and ride is adjacent and bus services appear frequent. We also easily found parking available in the city centre (at a charge). A few miles to the north you can access beaches and sand dunes. Overall the hotel was clean and modern with plenty of convenient parking. Just hope you get quiet neighbours.

Dear Guest

Many thanks for your comments regarding your stay at the hotel.

I am Glad to hear overall that you enjoyed your stay at the hotel but I am very sorry to hear your fellow guests where noisier than they should have been. Please accept my apoligises for this
Hopefully the next time you stay with we will ensure that you do not have an inter- connecting roomwhich should reduce the noise that you hear

Many thanks again for your comments and for staying with us the Holiday Inn Express Aberdeen Exhibition Centre

Kind Regards

We had a great stay last night. We stayed for one night as we were going to an event at AECC (RIGHT next door!) There were no problems whatsoever and staff were incredibly helpful in directing us from town and providing travelling condition updates (it was snowing heavily). Nothing seemed to be too much bother for them. Really impressive service from them.

Our room was lovely with a great sea view. Nice and spacious,clean and cosy. Within ten minutes of our gig next door finishing we were in our room,showered, looking out the window at everyone queuing to get out the parking lot- that was luxury! so highly reccomended if you are attending an event.

The free breakfast was good,great selection,nicely presented and in the room where it was served was really tranquil.

We really had a great stay, a really relaxing 24 hours and i really cant fault the service. will definitely return! thank you holiday inn express!

The Holiday Inn Express and the Holiday Inn are on the same property. The HIE looked newer and we found it to be clean, fresh, welcoming and with knowledgeable staff. We were driving a rental so found the car park very useful. Buffet breakkfast was the same as other HIE's having not much choice in cooked fruit area. We enjoyed our evening meal at the Holiday Inn next door, although a bus load of people arrived which put the service we were getting on hold until they were all sorted. Would stay there again.

Have been at the HIE before and would recommend it. The room was clean, spacious and well laid out. The hot shower on a cold night was excellent! Staff at reception were polite. However, sleep that night was not so good due to what sounded like a hen party next door - indeed through the connecting door! The continental breakfast buffet was reasonable and was all that we needed to set us up for the day.

We stayed here for one night for a wedding and have to say that we were very impressed with everything about the hotel (except perhaps the price of drinks at the bar - but we're from London, so didn't shock us too much). The room was very clean and of a good size, the beds were very comfy, the bathroom large enough and clean, the shower was very powerful. We even had a sea view. Breakfast was very good, a big selection of food and drink and you could have as much as you wanted!

We were allowed a super early check in (our flight landed at 8.30am, so we needed the room from 9am, 3 hours earlier than normal) and also a late check out, with no questions asked.

Can't recommend this hotel enough, considering the amount we paid. I think it is a little out of the city centre, but we didn't need to go there, so wasn't a problem for us.

Had to stay in Aberdeen for business stayed at the Holiday Inn Express . Arrived late the receptionists were excellent welcoming friendly despite it being extremely busy. the room was clean and comfortable.
The evening meal is the highlight of the day. I wasn't disappointed the young staff were efficient friendly and eager to help. The food was well presented and well cooked and value for money . Mozzarella and tomato salad excellent as was the spaghetti and the chicken would recommend . Breakfast is available at 6.30 and before if you just have the continental selection, I wish more hotels offered this as an option .. Wouldn't hesitate to use the hotel again
