This was our first visit to this hotel and found from the start that the staff were very helpful and welcoming. We arrived early morning and were offered to leave our belongings in the Left Luggage Room until our room was available. As our friend was already booked in we left our luggage in theirs and went out to enjoy our day. We picked a room which also had a sofa and found this to be very comfortable and spacious enough for the both of us. Our friend was in a twin room and we felt it would have been a bit cramped for us as it did not have a seated area. The bed was very comfy but as it was just a double and we have a King size at home, we found this to be a bit less roomy. The room was very hot( no air con) so we opened the window, we were then given a chorus all night by the Seagulls. This we accept could not be rectifyed by the hotel, it is just the noises you have to accept staying near the sea. We were very disappointed with the breakfast area as there was very little room and as it was quite busy there was not enough space to get to the toaster etc as people were queuing in front of these. Everyone was stuck to the spot until the person in front moved forward, this causing the toaster to go free but you were unable to get access. Really does need a rethink. The tables were also dirty with remnants of the previous occupants spills and crumbs. Overall we had a very pleasant stay and with just a couple of tweaks here and there we would certainly love to give this hotel a 10 out of 10 but sadly not on this occasion. We would however recommend this hotel to our friends and family.

Great location to explore the city on foot whilst not on a main road so quiet. Familiar clean and well maintained holiday inn express offer, good room facilities and ample bar. Loads of pubs and restaurants close by so no need for extensive restaurant facilities. Stayed here twice now on business and just booked my third stay next week

Good hotel. Wi-fi in my room was non-existent, but that was a good thing as I had to take the night off from work. No wi-fi, no work. That's my excuse boss, and I'm sticking to it. Room was clean, shower was great. Shame a small bakery was directly outside my room. Bakers start extra early, damn them. Breakfast was decent and the meal-deal for dinner was inspired by whoever organised it.

I always choose this hotel when I go to Aberdeen for courses and the like. Easy to get to they do have a small car park of which you will be lucky to park in. On a plus there is a multi storey car park just up the road. Easy check in good clean hotel, bar and restaurant on the ground floor serving breakfast only. Friendly staff and located in the city centre you are accessible to everything.

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and it was great. The beds were extremely comfortable and it was very clean. Staff were very pleasant and helpful and, when a problem arose over Disabled parking space, solved the problem immediately. The outcome was very acceptable to us and helped make our stay even more pleasant. Breakfast was nice, with very good choices, including fruit, yoghurts, cheese, cereals, breads and pastries as well as hot cooked choices.

We were given a room on the 3rd floor above the hotel entrance. The room was clean and spacious with a big comfy bed and a clean and functional bathroom. The problem was the room was roasting hot with no air con. Fine, we tilted the window open and went out for the evening. When we returned and went to bed there was a almighty noise from outside, a pub or club nearby was in full swing. Choice, do not get any sleep because of this noise and an open window or do not get any sleep in a stifling room with the window closed. Grump over. The staff were were nice enough at check in and out though. Ask for a top floor room at the back.

The hotel is located in The city center and is very central. The rooms are very hot, with no airconditioning, very noisy outside, so no sleep with the Window open. The rooms also smell like a sour washing machine. Breakfast is very poor, with poor selection of food, and almost no fruit.

Arrived early for check in, but cheerful receptionist booked us in right away. Nice hotel, with breakfast included, which was more than adequate, with plenty of choice. Only one complaint, room was so hot, and window hardly opened to let in air, so perhaps improvement there. Other than that a very enjoyable 2 night stay.

Basic travellers hotel. My bed was very soft and not overly comfortable. Limited parking. The breakfast was just ok and the coffee mediocre. The reception staff did do their best though to be helpful and were very polite.

We arrived early and left our bags in the luggage room. This allowed us to wander and munch.Friendly staff, good sized room (twin), comfy beds and pillows.Kettle and tea/coffee facilities. Hair drier in room. Quite room at back of hotel.Comfy sitting area and bar. Good atmosphere, handy for shops and eateries. Bakery across the road was open at 11pm, take aways and chippy along road. Hotel had machines for snacks and drinks. Also an ice cube machine ..........handy.Good range of choices for breakfast, hot and cold. Would come here again.
