I stayed in the Brittania hotel in Aberdeen on a business trip. I was looking for somewhere near the airport in Dyce. Everywhere else was fully booked. This place seemed to have lots of space. I know why now. On their website it looks good enough. It is clever photography. The place is just dirty, old, scraped, scarred, stained, cracks in all sorts of plaster, graffiti on walls etc. It oozes poor management and neglect. The rooms and corridors smell stale. I looked forward to using the pool and sauna as shown on their website. When I checked in (long business day, looking forward to relaxing) was told the pool was closing. I passed by the pool and it was tiny, not at all like what is shown on the web page. There is a bar attached to the hotel and it is grimy and filthy. The food was cheap roadkill bar grub. Not very apitizing. The staff take little pride in their appearance and don't seem very inclined to smile, they curse at each other in the bar in front of the guests etc. I don't blame them working in such an environment can hardly be inspirational for them. I opted for breakfast at the hotel and it was nothing to write home about. The original hotel was the Sheraton in 1974, it has taken a long slide in 40 years, my taxi driver said it has changed hands several times.....In all honesty, avoid at all costs if you can. It was the only place I could find with a vacancy but I will look elsewhere having experienced it first hand.....
