My husband and I like old, quirky, character but not GRIME! This hotel needs some serious cleaning. As you enter the vestibule there is a horrible worn and dirty rug,does not bode well...the main lobby is not bad, has new leather couches and and old but not bad reception area. Then up to the rooms along dirty hallways and baseboards. Our room had the dirtiest carpeting I have ever seen. I would not take off my shoes in that room! The smoke alarm on ceiling was covered over in red tape, There was a large hole in the vent cover. The bathroom was newly renovated and shiny clean. The towel warmer had a sign on wall that said :warning, this gets VERY hot: The bottom of the towel warmer had a bare wire sticking out! Concern for safety in this room!! The bedding was clean and in good condition. We always find the pony under the manure and I must include the positive. The location is great, just steps from rail station. The staff, especially woman at reception was helpful and kind. It appears they are attempting updates. Recommend they start with cleaning!!
We have visited The Station Hotel on many occasions for its wonderful high tea and also the a la carte menu. Severely disappointed on this occasion and will probably not return. The only positive I can give is the waiting staff who were really nice. The menu was a laminate A4 piece of paper with only very basic choice of food at not very basic prices!! We asked if this was the only menu and were told that the kitchen was being refitted and yes this was the only menu. We chose our meal reluctantly as we thought it was rude to just leave without eating. Halfway through eating our very basic meals 3 men sat down at the table next to us and within minutes of ordering were served the most delicious looking burgers - which were not on the menu! My friend ask the waiter about their choice and was told that there was a separate offshore menu - really??? Very disappointed with choice, price and quality of food.
Room a bit shabby, chipped dresser and damaged window. Be sure to park in the correct car park! I parked in the wrong one, but wasnt told to move when I told the receptionist where I was parked. Response from the same receptionist on check-out 2 days later? 'I'm not from Aberdeen'. Neither am I so would expect the hotel to advise guests appropriately. Driver beware!
The high tea here is fantastic and great value for money. You get a main meal, toast, cakes or ice cream and copious amounts of tea/coffee and all for just under £9. Well worth a visit if you have a big appetite and a low budget but you will have to book for the high tea
Stayed for 2 nights. When arrived and on route to room there was dirty plates all over the floors. Directions given to reach room were unclear and was visible pipes and electric wires from within walls. Got to room more disappointment; window would not close and it was absolutely freezing !!, curtains didn’t cover half the window so our room was exposed to everyone looking in outside, room also had a funky smell and the tv did not work ! The floorboards were very ,very creaky and creaked very lousy every-time there was the slightest movement. The ceiling in our room had visible cracks and looked very damp and all the electric sockets were outdated and looked very dangerous. We also found numerous unidentifiable pills on the floor when we first arrived. The toilet door also would not shut and the toilet seat was also broken. The bath also had mould on the sides and looked like it hadn’t been cleaned throughly. Overall not the best hotel to stay in, however it was in a good location near the centre but that’s about the only good thing about this hotel.
We stayed at the Station Hotel Aberdeen as we were catching an early bus. The room we had was very nice with plenty of room and it was nice and warm (-1c) outside. It was very handy for the bus station and the Union Square shopping centre.
I chose this hotel for a one night stay with my boyfriend, I phoned to try get early check in and was refused so had to get ready for a day out somewhere else. When we then went to check in the staff were nice enough. We went to our room, taking the lift that felt like it was away to break down any minute then when we got to our room, it was nothing like any of the pictures shown on the website. All but one plug in our room never worked making it hard for us to use electrical goods/ charging our phones. When going for a shower the next morning before checking out I realised ALL the towels were covered in make up stains/ looking dirty and the shower kept going cold. I Would not recommend staying here.
I stayed at this hotel bed and breakfast for 4 nights from 20 to 24 March 2018 and overall I enjoyed the experience. I was in room 219 in an economy double room for single occupancy which was situated on the second floor at the front of the building, meaning that it was very noisy at night. (I bought earplugs in Union Street which helped). The room was spacious with a modern bathroom and tea making facilities. Breakfast was served from 5.30am in the week so by the time I came down for my breakfast some of the hot items were rather dry. Breakfast was basic with all the essential items available, toast, eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms and tomatoes. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the public areas in reception, the bar and restaurant are bright and modern. I would return to this economy hotel available in the city centre at a competitive price
We booked and had room 108 , there were at lot of fungous in the bathroom. The tapestry at the entrance was loose , probably due to fungous but not sure about this. The heating system out of order in the room , apparently for a long time. The door could not be locked from the inside. That was the worse hotel room I have experienced in my life. Requested an other room and the friendly lady changed the room to 318 which was a bit better. In the morning went to check the status of room 108 , again a hefty stench of fungous. The attached pictures document this. The management of this hotel should know that fungous is a health risk. Again if you can avoid this hotel there are better options nearby.
Someone recommended afternoon and high tea in this hotel to me a while ago. My hubby and I went for afternoon tea on Wednesday. It was very good value and recommendations do not lie. We were £7.50 each. 3 types of sandwiches - Turkey,boiled ham and egg. Scones with jam and cream. Cakes- ginger cupcakes, cinnamon slices coconut slices. Had a pot of tea and had top ups if required. All in the one price. The hotel lots posh and expensive from the outside and probably people go past and never think of it. If you read my reviews you will know I am fed up with fast food chains and mostly same foods so if you are looking for somewhere different at decent price like me this place is worth the visit. Had a look at high tea menu and we are going back within the next few weeks. Found out when talking to people lots of people go quite often when meeting in city. They all keep going that says it all. Can't wait to try high tea. Will let you know how it goes.
