This is our third or fourth visit to this hotel on the beach at Aberdeen city. The platinum Club is private and luxurious. It is a stand alone building with its own reception and staff, a comfortable lounge for platinum club guests with wifi and cable internet, private bar and of course the buffet breakfast included in our junior suite cost. There is a Fitness centre, pool, whirlpool, sauna, steam room and beauty spa in the main building just a few steps away from the private entrance of the Platinum Club.
When we arrived (straight from a long haul of 30 hours) we were greeted with the usual warm welcome, a complimentary drink and a warm chocolate cookie. However, our requested room which is one of the junior suites on the 1st floor was not available and we were placed at the southern end of the Platinum club. Because we travel from Australia to visit my mother in law we need to be able to complete business via the internet. My husband is in the Computer business and found the wifi signal to be weak at the southern end. When we explained this to the reception staff they immediately penciled us in for a change of suite the following day into our requested room as soon as it was vacated and the wifi worked very well at the Northern end of the club building. Other family members were travelling via London and when they arrived the staff did their very best to accommodate them in a room on the same floor also at the Northern end.
The Platinum club junior suite we had was a very large and spacious room with floor to ceiling windows and exclusive views over the grass to the beach and the sea of Aberdeen. We had a very comfortable supersize king bed, a full lounge suite, a good sized desk, coffee table and a large flat screen TV. The furnishings are tasteful and in pristine condition. We had complimentary drinks placed in the fridge every day and chocolates too. It was quiet and private and has been every time we have visited. We have always been given the VIP treatment and this time it was the same. The staff always acknowledged us as we returned through the dedicated entrance each day (a large walk-in glass revolving door) and were interested in what we had been doing around the area. The Hilton is very close to the esplanade beach walks, the old fishing village of Aberdeen with its very quaint fishing cottages and pedestrian narrow streets, and easy driving to the coastal villages of the North coast such as Pennan and south coast such as Stonehaven. It is also walking distance to the recently built shopping centre using the old train station and Union Street shopping.
The Platinum club is exclusive and private and always very warm in the Scottish winter. Our room had 3 heaters and all worked very well. We could adjust the heat as needed. The bathroom also had its own heating. There was individual heating in the corridors too. We feel very at home here and thank the professional staff for assisting us in every way to make our stay a great experience. The Platinum Club is our preferred choice in Aberdeen as we need a quiet, private and attentive hotel for our 6 or 7 day stay each time while visiting an infirmed relative and then doing the return 30 hour long haul back to Australia.
