Picked this, almost at random, for being near the mainline rail station, and not disappointed. It has a trendy, vibrant , bar area yet the room was peaceful and tranquil. The staff were on the ball and very friendly.Everything we needed was in the room ( although ear plugs were provided but never required). The Merchant Quarter is very near...

Went in for afternoon tea on Saturday and was blown away by everything! My group and I had the classic afternoon tea set which was excellent value as it included enough food for all of us and was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was great and although it was busy, we were still able to hear one another talk. Our server,...

My friends and I went to Carmelite for Afternoon Tea - we had heard bad reviews but always like to try things for ourselves. Disappointing is the only word to describe it! Although the hotel décor itself is lovely and the toilets are spotless the contents of the Afternoon Tea let them down. The sandwiches were finger ones which would...

Got a great deal with 5pm, upgraded to the cabenet suite, it was absolutely beautiful, so much better than I expected. Bottle of perry in the room, rose petals scattered over the circle bed, black out room, lots of sweets and great little things that make up the room. Loved the bath in the middle of the floor and the...

Overall, i was left with a poor impression, and our group of 14 agreed. We waited an age for service, had to reorder a lot of things which didnt arrive, and asked for a jug of water 3 times before we got any. Then when the bill arrived, it made no sense. My husband and I alone were £75 for...

I have visited this place many times and I have to say this is one of my very best hotels to stay in. The ambience is lovely (there is usually someone playing on the piano when we arrive on a Saturday afternoon) or if there is a wedding on then there may be a piper at the door. Most of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Carmelite is neatly positioned in the centre of Aberdeen's Merchant Quarter, which is adjacent to the transport hub of rail, bus, coach stations and harbour. The Merchant Quarter is the "grown up" area of the city, full of independent bars and restaurants, and surrounded by the city's 5 under-cover retail shopping centres. An historical Grade B listed building dating back to mid 1800's, Carmelite has undergone major refurbishment program over recent years, introducing a boutique environment on the ground floor of Carmelite Bar & Grill, whilst the 50 bedrooms offer a mix of "Designer" Suites and rooms on the 1st floor, "Dapper" rooms refurbished end of 2012, on the 2nd floor and comfortable standard rooms on the 3rd floor. These enable attractive rates to suit all budgets. Aberdeen is a commercial city, with limited accommodation mid-week, however weekends offer some fantastic deals making an alternative visitor experience very affordable. The 6 Suites are all different, and very quirky - from round beds in turrets, and gigantic sleigh beds, all designer rooms have cast iron baths, monsoon showers. The "Dapper" rooms have un-cluttered designs with a mix of large monsoon shower rooms, double ended steel baths (some designed with 'no taps'), and black-out window blinds. All the bespoke furniture in these rooms were made by A social Enterprise Company in Dundee, called Dovetail. The 3rd floor standard rooms, although not yet refurbished, offer clean, comfortable accommodation, still with all the usual amenities. All rooms have luxury beds made locally by Social Enterprise Aberdeen Company called Glencraft. Designer "Anatomicals" or "Keiji" bath products, 32/40" LED Samsung Freeview TVs, as well as clocks, iPhone docking stations, tea/coffee making facilities, and most rooms with iron and ironing boards. A room service menu is available during restaurant times.The ground floor also is a boutique environment, quirky with a large open plan lounge and dining area, with informal comfy sofas, a Baby Grand Piano playing at weekends, and a dining 4 Poster Bed. The comprehensive bar menu offers superb cocktails, 12 champagnes, and extensive wine and drinks as well as a bar nibbles food options. Menus cover breakfast and brunch from a "Wake Up till Noon" menu, then an A'la Carte "All Day Menu" available from 12noon through till dinner. There is a Shoppers Menu available till 5pm each day with £8 main courses, and a Market Menu options each evening.
