I stayed here for 15 nights whilst on business in Inverurie, I should have walked away when i booked in and was met by a man wearing a hoodie and was wanting the full 15 night payment upfront ( this was the only time I saw any one in reception whilst I stayed ). The hotel needs updating and there description on there web site is not a true picture of the place especcially when you see the front of the building and the broken windows on the upper floors!! Food is not served here you have to go to the local chippy or restraunt in Inverurie. ( they have the local takeaway restraunt next door ). Breakfast was supposed to be conntinental which was several days old Croissants and old yougart which had expired and some times if you were lucky some milk for your coffee if the kettle worked. The Room was small and heating was temprimental. The TOWEL was changed every 3 - 4 days, I had to go looking for a toilet roll. I had to use my own coffee in the room as the coffee and milk sachets were 2 MONTHS out of date.
After my stay I discovered they had taken another £50 from my bank account, after trying to phone the manager / owner about it he sayed it was a double booking by Late Rooms and told me to contact them, After contacting Late Rooms who said it had nothing to do with them and they had problems contacting the hotel on my behalf. the situation is now being dealt with the Nat West Bank and the police. Also the trading standards agency have been informed.
