“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

During a visit from Australia in May and June 2012, I stayed at the Brentwood for 10 nights over 4 separate weekends. It had come recommended to me by friends and I was actually quite surprised at how good it is for the price.

I found all the staff (front desk, restaurant and bar) all very friendly and welcoming. The restaurant has a very nice, if not overly large menu - just the same, more than sufficient to choose from. From the crowds in there each evening, it is obviously a popular dining spot. (I would particularly recommend the Cullen Skink).

The rooms were always spotlessly clean and more than ample in size.

There is only limited parking (and their website makes that quite clear), however, I had no trouble finding a spot as I came and went.

The location close to Union Street is ideal. Nevertheless, I never experienced any noise problems.

Overall, I thought it was excellent value for money, and I will not even think about staying anywhere when next in Aberdeen

Used to stay at this hotel a few years ago on a regular basis and couldn't fault it, but wouldn't say this on this occasion.
1. Young receptionist with a walking stick very welcoming, polite and willing to help in any way possible.Wouldn't say this about the other receptionist with dark hair who ignored us when we came in and was behind the back office door then went on to the computer after seeing us, the young girl was on the phone and still this didn't make her think I better go see to the guest. Young girl apologised but this wasn't her fault, glad I dealt with her she seemed to have time for the guests from what I saw throughout my stay while the other was at the back ignoring guests!
2.bar very friendly and busy the night I was down, variety of drinks. Restaurant staff hard working and meals are great, could have more choice on menu though.
3. Rooms not as clean as they used to be, this seems to have gone down hill. Hotel is in the city centre so you must expect the noise from rooms at night.

Nice stay don't know if I'd come back again as it certainly isn't the hotel it used to be! New manager aswell I noticed maybe this is why??

Stayed here one night mid-week before flying to Shetland. Very clean with a very nice bar downstairs where the bar staff were very friendly which made a great atmosphere. Unfortunately the same could not be said for the reception staff. On arrival I was ignored whilst the receptionist was doing something in the back office, there was no welcome when she did approach me just looked at me and waited until I spoke first, felt a bit odd. Was put in room ten which faces onto the main road and was quite noisy until late and again early in the morning, avoid this room if you can. Other than that a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Avoid room ten

. Excellent islander rates and an affordable place to stay mid week when hotel prices are high in Aberdeen. Rooms are modern and clean. Service is excellent with a left luggage room available for early arrivals and late departures.

I had to book this quickly due to a last minute hospital appointment in Aberdeen coming from Orkney.
I took my iPad with me and was delighted to find free wifi available which is not readily available in many large hotel chains!
Single room was really spacious very warm clean and comfortable.
The cooked breakfast was really well prepared and fresh tasting. Service was incredibly quick.
A bit more choice of fruit , rolls, cheese and cold meats would be a nice addition to the breakfast buffet.
Very good value centrally situated hotel.

Room Tip: There are quite a lot of stairs so it might be less suitable for guests who have mobility issues.
