Stayed here over New Years in December/Jan, and it was a perfect stay. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and modern. Bathroom was in a "pod" style, and quite small, but had everything we needed. Shower was powerful and it was clean.

Rooms are quite basic, which is a reflection of the price, as it was very reasonable, but despite this, we still had cable TV with a good selection of channels, radio and internet. Some people on here have mentioned the noise level, but I have to say, I did not experience any problems.

The bar and restaurant is open 24 hours. The food menu is quite limited, but the breakfast buffet selection is extensive. As we were out all day everyday and eating out for lunch and dinner, this was not a problem for us. The hearty breakfast is all we needed!

The location was also ideal, as it is right in the City centre and close to the shopping centres, harbour and a short walk to the beach.

Overall, very pleasing stay.

Good location (in the city centre), clean and tidy, all what You need to hold Yours stuff, sleep (comfortable beds, rooms with personal aircon) and eat (menu does not have a lot of items, but completely meets the expectations)

I had some trouble sleeping here on my last visit. This time they moved me to a higher floor on the harbour side which made an enormous difference, with the bonus of a interesting view over the harbour. Back for New Year and promised they same room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Being in the city centre it is well positioned for eating and entertainment.

Room Tip: Harbour side - see above

We stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago and it was good. This visit resulted in a room that suffered from noise from rooms above. The noise seems amplified by the laminate floors but the main problem seems to be the shower room/w.c. 'pods'. These seem to be prefabricated and are beginning to age - i.e. they creak and groan when you walk in them. The shower doors and the entry door are very noisy.
Our main problem on this visit was arriving back at the hotel on Christmas day at 21:30 (after spending the day at our daughter's flat) to find that our room had not been made up. On contacting reception they provided clean towels/bath mats very quickly and offered us a couple of drinks at the bar as recompense. Not much else can be done at that time at Christmas.
Breakfast is reasonably OK for the price. Staff are very friendly. A small reduction in the final bill at checkout was made. Overall it's good value in overpriced Aberdeen but needs some attention to detail.

Room Tip: Higher floors may be quieter. You have to remember that this hotel does offer a very good price for...

Stayed 2 nights for a family weekend, the location was ideal as a short walk took you right to Union Street/Castlegate, the bar and restaurant area was very nice and breakfast was well cooked and good choice, rooms were spacious and comfortable, the staff were extremely friendly and always there for help.

Will definitely stay again.

Selected by my employer for a week's stay.
I stayed earlier at a local B&B and if I knew it was only £20 more to stay here I would not have selected the B&B.
Fine room. Everything in place.
I wish the thin white towels were nice fluffy ones.
Wonder how does one cope when it is hot - open the window and listen to the street noise? Some simple air circulation would have been nice.
Give the restaurant a skip - food is pretty bland with slow service.
But it is conveniently situated.
And it is good value. You will still have change to spend on something in Aberdeen.

Room Tip: Try and get a room as high up as possible.
