“Great Value for city break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2012

Stayed here last weekend with a friend, bought on groupon deal so got 2 nights B&B for £60 which was a fantastic deal, we were given roon 202 which had a balcony and was situated above the outdoor area for the lounge bar, noise was not a problem for us. Friday evening we took to the bar for some food and few bottles of wine it was really busy but service was still quick and the meal was tasty. room itself was clean yes there wasnt much storage but we were only staying a few days so not a problem for us, staff at reception/bar and breakfast were all polite and efficient. weekends they didnt do a cooked breakfast but we were happy with the selection of cereal/toast etc especially considering the price we paid. there was a bus stop outside hotel which we used for going shopping and out into city centre in the evening. taxi fare home at 2am was only £6 - would definately stay again and would recommend to anyone looking for a cheap Aberdeen deal.

We stayed for one night on a groupon deal for £34 and considered it to be very good value indeed. Although the room was small and did not have much storage (no drawers, small hanging space), it was comfortable, clean and had an excellent shower room. There was plenty tea/coffee/biscuits. We had a room at the front with a balcony and since the front of the room was all glass, it let in lots of sunshine. It was nice to wake up and see the trees across the road. The continental breakfast in the comfortable restaurant was very good: fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt, croissants. For a stay longer than a couple of nights, I think you would feel the lack of space and storage. I think it is a little misleading to say it is 10 minutes walk from Union St. Maybe a very brisk walk would take you to the nearest end of Union street, but to get to the centre would be double that. We used the bus and it took the bus 10 minutes to get to the main shopping area. We only stayed one night but made 9 bus journeys getting to and from the hotel/shops/beach. We will certainly consider coming back for a return visit.

We had a Groupon voucher 2 nights B&B for £60. Thought the hotel was great value. Rooms clean and modern bathroom looks like its had been recently refurbished. Great hotel if you have children at university in Aberdeen and want to visit. Breakfast in the morning was continental lovely freshly prepared fresh fruit not out a can like some hotels cereal croissants etc. lots of lovely freshly made toast. Would definitely recommend it for a short trip. Excellent value. My only downside were the pillows which were very flat I like nice fluffy pillows. Maybe an extra one could be left in the cupboard if needed. No hairdryer in the room but one available at reception. Tea and coffee making facilities. Staff very friendly and amazingly organized in the morning. Will definitely be back for another visit

Room Tip: Rooms on the back probably quieter our room 104 above entrance of bar so smokers were out chatting b...

Was dissapointed with this hotel, first impression was good, but bedroom was no bigger than broom cupboard, certainly not one of the ones shown on booking website. Very basic, would not reccomemd this hotel, definitely not value for money.

I stayed here last night for the 34pound groupon offer. I can honestly say that the standard is comparable with more expensive hotel. My room was the last one available and I was advised about possible music coming from the bar, but this was not an issue for me as I was not planning on going to sleep before midnight. The room was lovely, the bathroom did seem to have been designed to cater for a mobility user (which I thought was good). Good supply of normal/decaffeinated coffee and biscuits were also available. Only remote downside being the lock on the door was a bit awkward to open and the Shower was a little bit tricky to try and get the right temperature.

My husband and i stayed for one night the room was lovely and clean and had good supply of tea,coffee and biscuits. The whole hotel was well presented and staff were all very friendly. we went down to the sports bar for a few drinks the prices were reasonable and there was a good atmosphere. The breakfast in the morning was continental there was a good choice of cereal , croissants fruit,toast and yogurts. We enjoyed our stay and would return again as it is within ten minutes walk of the town centre where there is a good choice of shops and restaurants.
