Britannia Hotel Aberdeen

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Really enjoyed the stay - staff couldn't do enough and I was particularly pleased with the efforts of the management in assisting the front desk when it was busy, extending full courtesy to arriving guests.

clean and friendly place for a wee get away with my son who was visiting me from America we had a good time in Aberdeen pool was nice not very big but was all you needed for a wee swim in the morning before breakfast

The staff were very rude. The breakfast was horrible, very dry and cold. The rooms were very run down except for a nice looking reception area with a bar. The bar was always closed until after 4PM everyday we stayed over and the pool was dirty with towels from gym people just thrown all around on the floors. Horrible smell in the corridors from people smoking out of the fire escape doors.

This hotel has all the elements of a decent facility but just leaves you wanting more. When I stayed here there was building work going on to modernise the place and in needed it. Tired, shabby etc. It might be better now but I'd check other reviews.

Booked into the hotel three weeks in advance. A fire seemingly occured which closed the place down. I found out accidentally via a collegue two hours before flying up there. A complete shambles of an organisation. Ended up finding a place at the last minute with much extra expense. No call, no appologies, completely unacceptable.

Hotel was great, we got a really good price so ended up staying or should say booked in for2 nights. Food in bar was good, beer cold. Hotel was dated but found it comfortable and really clean. Staff really friendly and helpful. BUT then it caught on fire and couldn't stay 2nd night. Staff very professional, helping guests, keeping them informed. They organised another hotel to move to.

Couldnt even check-in because of the flames. Then the police asked me to leave. Firefighters everywhere, and hotel guests brawling with them to try and get back in for their posessions. hell of an afternoon.

Hotel room clean and comfortable staff helpful and friendly too many contractors in hotel wearing there work gear, there was a lot of bad language in the bar and lounge areas , I would not recommend this hotel for children

This hotel is going through it's death throes, not helped by being on the outskirts of a city that's utterly miserable. Aberdeen reminded me of when kids would ask their grandparents, if everything was in black and white, when they were younger. It feels as if everything in this place is just in miserable monochrome. The hotel rooms are very basic, which is OK when you're paying £78 for two nights, but the toilet wasn't clean, with faeces on the inside of the lid, and the door looked as if it's taken a regular bashing! Everything in the room was cheap and nasty and there was a lack of power points to charge phones, use hairdryer etc. I shall not dwell on the cooked breakfast, because it was simply awful. We decided to have continental breakfast in bed, on the second day and they couldn't get the order right. Most of it was inedible and seemed like a total waste. We made the mistake of staying in the hotel room for a meal, not wishing to venture out in the city anymore than we had to. It was a disaster. I almost choked on a bone from undercooked fish, that was covered in a cardboard/rubber mix, of some sort. It was like no other batter I've ever come across. The chips were inedible, cheap, frozen nasty slithers of gel. The peas were nicely heated up, though! The apple pie didn't taste of apple and the waitress, who was nice enough, despite not even asking if our meals were OK, because she obviously knew that it was best not to, managed to bring a warm glass of water with ice! It was incredulous! The hotel has a large number of workmen staying, which is fair enough, but when groups of them were wandering around the hotel, shouting at 1am, you'd expect someone to come and check it out, after you'd contacted reception to please ask them to stop, but...yes, you've guessed it. Nothing! We were happy to get the hell out of dodge and will, hopefully, never have to come back to this godforsaken place, ever again!

I stayed for a single night on business The gym was poor. 2 treadmills and 3 cross trainer and a few weight. Not clean or much space at all. I had to pay £2 to use the facility and felt that I was overcharging The room, bar and building was all very dated and really need decorating and a good clean. I wouldn't stay here if you are a couple. Food was also basic and not very nice from the bar. Something constructive though was the staff were all very nice. The price was reasonable for the location and it was easy to get to the airport costing £10 in a cab
