Carmelite
Ranked #46 of 65 Hotels in Aberdeen
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Stayed there for less than 12 hours, the restaurant/coffee shop serves excellent food and the staff though over worked are all smiles when dealing with the guests. Check-in was done with a minimum of fuss and very efficiently. The rooms are a bit small, but understandable it being in the heart of the city.

My hubby & I stayed here for an overnight. It is a beautiful, clean & friendly hotel. The only thing that I can fault the hotel for is the 'reception'! It's at the end of the main bar. While we were checking in one of the staff came to make a cup of tea n walked right in between us to do it & nearly burnt us!! The whole hotel is beautifully decorated & clean. The food is amaaaazing.

Thanks for your review and comments on the reception, we are in the midst of a transitional period from moving away from the traditional hotel check in to being "mobile" on I pads, unfortunatley the software is not quite there yet to move to I pads but is a work in progress. Once we get to our end goal the procedures will be much more functional!

Travelled to Aberdeen by bus so the Carmelite was ideally located just across the road from the bus station and shopping mall. The hotel a lovely granite building located in the merchant quarter which is close enough to the biz but far enough away if you want it a bit quieter. Our room was immaculate and very well appointed and the food and the service was excellent. We loved the pianist playing in the restaurant on the row evening that we dined here. Will definitely stay here the next time we visit Aberdeen.

Thanks for your review, we have a few different room types in the hotel, with the majority of our business being short stays we opted to give more space in the room as oposed to placing a big wardrobe to hang a few pieces of clothing up in, we do however have Chelsea Hooks in all the rooms with no wardrobes to enable our guests to hang such items up. Unfortunatley we can not manage our other guests Children & can only apologise for this. Hope to welcome you back soon.

Very pleased with our Daughter and son-in-law's overnight stay in the Japanese suite. The Manager very kindly showed us two other suite and they were very nice. The breakfast was good plenty of choices. We were very pleased with the wedding reception very well organised which was on the 9th August 2014. The Event Manager was very helpful.

Room Tip: The suites are worth an overnight stay we recommend to anyone.
