My wife and I, along with our 7week old daughter and 18month old son, have just stayed at The Caledonian this weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday.
I had done a lot of research on other hotels in the city and decided on The Caledonian following a recommendation from a friend tat lives in Aberdeen.
As it was my birthday we booked Room 418, The Wallace Suite. Fantastic! There is a small flight of stairs from the lift to get to the 4th floor, which was a little annoying when we had the pram, but bearing in mind the age of the building it was absolutely trivial in the grander scheme of things.
The views from the room surely cannot be surpassed anywhere else in Aberdeen and we were greeted with complimentary fruit and chocolates as it was my birthday.
The Reception staff could not have been anymore helpful and as our return flight home was in the evening they allowed us to store our shopping in their luggage store after checking out on our last day.
Full English Breakfast was perfect, no problem at all with the hot water(unlike other reviewers), hotel decor was perfect and the location is undoubtedly the best for city centre shopping with no external noise at all.
This is now our Aberdeen residence and we can't wait to go back !!
