Ranked #55 of 65 Hotels in Aberdeen
Reviewed 25 July 2017

No conference meant hotel was quiet and cheap room rate available. Free parking.
Usual HI rooms but food very good although menu rather limited. Bar adjoins dining/breakfast area with good service. Some smoking rooms!!!!

Room Tip: smoking rooms available

Was here for just one night. Great location and reasonably central.

Had a room on the fourth floor. It was comfortable with a huge bed. It wasn't the most modern of rooms but wasn't the oldest in terms of decor. Good bar and resto. Great breakfast!

Good value overall

Good impression at reception. Friendly and efficient, Just as it should be. Room on the 4th floor and at the end of the corridor, so it was nice and quiet.
Food served in the restaurant or in the bar. Again friendly staff and food arrived in good time. The menu is fairly plain and straightforward and I enjoyed the 2 courses I had

The Hotel is on the northern part of Aberdeen. Just right for my needs.
Free WiFi. Plenty of parking
Good breakfast

I would stay again for sure

There's nothing complimentary that I can say about this hotel, other than it is very convenient for the AECC.

The kindest thing they could do is to close it down, level it and rebuild the entire place. The rooms are old and tired. Bedding is hard and bathrooms ancient. Carpets are old, heating/air conditioning bad.

Posters on the third floor advertise a promotion that expired in December 2016.

Service is at best poor, and most certainly not up to any IHG standard. My friend and I arrived and found all areas to be in need of refurbishment. We decided to go into town the first night as there was nothing to keep us there. We were attending a show at the AECC on the Saturday evening.

As there is nothing in the area, in terms of restaurants and bars, it seems crazy that the hotel bar closes at 1030pm.

Breakfast was a buffet affair, but food was very poor. Utensils were left on hot plates so that you burnt your hands when trying to use them. The porridge resembled cement, and would have been better if it had been used as such. My advice is to go into town to eat, or head back to the airport. At least at the latter you have a Wetherspoons, which offers decent fayre.

For a Holiday Inn it is a disgrace to the brand and someone needs to do something about it, and soon.

I do not recommend anyone stays there, but to opt for the next door Holiday Inn Express.

Stayed: May 2017
