“Good Hotel - Rooms Need Some Updating”
Reviewed 1 June 2009

Stayed at the Ferryhill House Hotel for one night in May 2009. Driving up to the hotel, I was impressed with the outside decor and welcoming atmosphere of the outdoor beer garden. The hotel is in a nice neighborhood and a 10 - 15 minute walk to the city center.

The staff was very helpful and kind. We had to make a call and the staff helped us greatly by placing the call for us and transferring it to our room.

Restaurant and bar are very welcoming and enjoyed the food and drinks in a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere.

The room was clean but believe it may need some updating. The carpet specifically but otherwise was happy with the room. Good space, beautiful bay window, and comfortable bed and couch.

Overall, a good stay and would have no problem staying here again in the future.

Ferryhill House is a delightful, friendly hotel where we had a fantastic week-end. The most impressive aspect was the staff who were all so friendly and helpful throughout our stay, especially Paul who loaned us his road atlas for a day trip and gave us such helpful advice. Our room was beautifully appointed and the breakfast was delicious. A beautiful place full of old word charm that we will definitely visit again if we get to Aberdeen.

I stayed at the hotel on a previous visit to Aberdeen and returned last month with no disappointments.

There has been extensive renovation work and both the bar and restaurant areas have been completely re-decorated. All work is now finished it looks lovely. The bar is much bigger and there is an extra seating area.

My meal was fantastic and service was as good as I had remembered.

No complaints!

After all the great reviews I was really looking forward to our stay. The owner squeezed us in on a busy weekend which I was impressed by.

We stayed one night in a room right next to the internal building work which started at 8:30am on the Sunday with drills and hammering! We did mention this to the staff who apologised.

Breakfast was lovely - we were first down after our wake-up 'drill'.

The room and ensuite were clean and fresh but the bed was incredibly uncomfortable.

Overall I was disappointed and won't go back.

Loved Ferryhill House Hotel. It's a charming hotel with excellent staff. Clean and lovely rooms. Fabulous restaurant and adjoining pub with crackling fire to keep you warm on those chilly Scottish nights. Everyone was friendly and helpful and it was centrally located so we could walk to the city centre and train station. But it was also in quiet nice neighborhood for privacy and peace.

There are only 9 rooms, which makes it even more special. Great food!

Hotel was good, excellent location,food fantastic and the staff were very friendly. The rooms were a litle to hot maybe fans would be good in the summer months, or top sheets instead of heavy quilts. Building work going on at moment, did hear a little noise during the night, did not spoil our stay.

The hotel is very popular with the locals in Aberdeen, the only negative comment I would like to mention was the way smokers sit on the front steps - the main entrance to the hotel . Did not like walking through the cigarette smoke .Maybe signs should be put up stopping this happening, did notice this was the case on other bars in Abedeen.
