I have now stayed at this hotel twice whilst working in the area. The hotel is about ten to fifteen minutes from Aberdeen city centre, next to Aberdeen airport, I did hear a helicopter take off but it wasn't loud. It is situated in a residential area opposite a bowling green. The rooms are comfortable, clean and furnished well. I...

Attended the hotel for lunch, with my wife, son, daughter in law and grandson! We thoroughly enjoyed the meal! Service was very friendly and personal! The grandson was given plenty of attention! The food was very good, and a nice selection of drinks! Definitely would recommend and return again!

Stayed overnight on a business trip. Hotel is clean and well located just off the main ring road. It is fairly close to the airport and aircraft noise can be an issue, especially the early morning helicopters heading to and from the oil rigs. The restaurant was good value with tasty food delivered by friendly and efficient staff. If I...

I stayed here for one night on a business trip, the room appears to have been modernised perhaps in the last 12 months, it was very nice, a little on the small side but for one night it was certainly adequate. Had breakfast in hotel, food was decent as was the service. I managed to get a bit of a...

We've stayed here a few times now when we come and visit family and its ok but the rooms really need updating although bathrooms are lovely. Breakfast is great and they have at last got rid of the miserable waitress or perhaps we just got lucky and it was her weekend off!!

Rooms are excellent, staff friendly. Restaurant is trying to be too high class, need a simpler menu in addition to gourmet dining. Hotel is NOT wheelchair friendly, step to get in, and stairs to the rooms (this time did not need wheelchair access, If I had would have had to book elsewhere)

“Only noise is from the airport as close to route taken by helicopters, but this tends to be early evening so not a major issue.”
