Premier Inn Aberdeen South (Portlethen) Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Portlethen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 March 2014

We booked a family room which consisted of a double bed, single (sofa) bed and a single size camp bed. All were fine - not overly comfortable but fine for a night. Disappointed that it was a double bed though as the last time we stayed in a Premier Inn it was a kingsize (also in a family room).
Room was clean and warm, and separate to the main building. No problems with noise and the reception staff were nice. They offered the kids some sweets while they were checking our room was ready.
We ate at the attached Brewers Fayre - the service on the Saturday night wasn't great but the staff on at breakfast were lovely and very helpful.
Location too was fine as we were travelling to and from Aberdeen by car.
Overall, it was a good stay but the double bed would make us reconsider staying again.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our hotel. At Premier Inn we always strive to provide customers with an enjoyable stay. We thank you for the positive comments and apologise that on this occasion the bed was not a king size. At our hotel we do not have king size beds but your comments have been noted and we will follow up with management, to see perhaps in the future they can replace the beds with king size beds.
The comments about the restaurant will be followed up with there management .
We hope to welcome you back in the future to Premier Inn

This premier inn was up to the usual premier inn standard. It was clean and spacious, plenty of car parking , close to Aberdeen . The receptionist was very friendly and efficient - she was a super ambassador for premier inn. The restaurant was good, but be aware that it has a big play area and so is popular with local families as well as residents - so it was busy and noisy on a weekend evening ! But the meal was good and good value. Breakfast was nice too. Would recommend.

Room Tip: There are rooms attached to the main building and also a separate block. The separate block is a wal...

Stayed for one night on the 14th March 2014. As soon as we arrived there were two lovely receptionists who were so welcoming and friendly. The room was lovely and clean and comfortable. The next door restaurant was packed so we just wanted a takeaway, the lovely girls at reception got me a phone number for a local chippie and it was delivered. The girls chatted away to me while I was waiting at reception for the takeaway.
It makes ALL the difference when staff are friendly and welcoming - it is becoming a rare thing these days and this experience will make me want to return again and again. Well done girls!

Room Tip: Very soundproof inside rooms but a room a bit away from the restaurant would be a good idea in case...

I had to get an operation at Aberdeen hospital and my partner an son came with me an we decided to choose this premier inn to stay in while I was there. They were very helpful and made sure I was ok an if I needed anything just to ask. They also went out of there way to talk to my 3 yr old all the time (who was always in super hero outfit) which is good talking point. The rooms were very clean and comfy. We also ate there at nights which was good as they had buffets on and a play area for kids so its all round winner for us. Were planning to go back soon and we are definitely staying at this premier inn.

Stayed a couple of nights in February and was a bit concerned about previous reviewers saying it was cold. They were correct, it was, but a quick press on the controls and the room soon got up to a decent temperature. Bed comfy and next door pub did a good selection of food which we tried one of the nights. Clean and quiet in the hotel itself. We will be back as we come this way every now and then.

A definite must stay place, staff are so friendly and helpful, not far to Aberdeen and an Asda close by. The rooms are warm comfortable and clean. Anything we needed was there if not we asked and were treated very well. The beds are wonderfully comfortable with the option of different pillows to suit what you like.
