Hotel appears to have been recently renovated as rooms are very modern, but with a couple of unfinished bits, nothing major. Restaurant is very modern with nice old fashioned touches, food is excellent. I had a black pudding starter followed by a delicious steak. Bar is small but fairly quiet, large tv in bar area but we were informed that...

I Normally don't stay in Dyce as I like going to the city. But, this hotel popped up on my company's booking web site, it looked ok, so I went with it. I was very surprised with this hotel. It is much better than I was expecting. It doesn't look like much from the outside. In fact I think it...

I stay in Aberdeen a lot but have never stayed here. This is by far the best place I've stayed for a few reasons. 1. It's super clean everywhere in the hotel. 2. It's it in very good condition( now worn carpets or furniture) 3. The staff were excellent. 4. The food was fantastic ( see pic) 5. Good powerful...

Thank you very much for that, we do try. We are the only non chain hotel within touching distance of the airport; 53 bedrooms for anyone reading this! But thanks, always nice when someone takes the time.

My second visit to this hotel, on both occasions for business. Conveniently close to the airport with good parking. Staff are friendly, courteous and very helpful, can't fault them. Rooms a good size, clean, with modernised bathrooms with good shower. The restaurant is a little bit pricey but then the food is fantastic.

I have now stayed at this hotel twice whilst working in the area. The hotel is about ten to fifteen minutes from Aberdeen city centre, next to Aberdeen airport, I did hear a helicopter take off but it wasn't loud. It is situated in a residential area opposite a bowling green. The rooms are comfortable, clean and furnished well. I...

Attended the hotel for lunch, with my wife, son, daughter in law and grandson! We thoroughly enjoyed the meal! Service was very friendly and personal! The grandson was given plenty of attention! The food was very good, and a nice selection of drinks! Definitely would recommend and return again!

Stayed overnight on a business trip. Hotel is clean and well located just off the main ring road. It is fairly close to the airport and aircraft noise can be an issue, especially the early morning helicopters heading to and from the oil rigs. The restaurant was good value with tasty food delivered by friendly and efficient staff. If I...

I stayed here for one night on a business trip, the room appears to have been modernised perhaps in the last 12 months, it was very nice, a little on the small side but for one night it was certainly adequate. Had breakfast in hotel, food was decent as was the service. I managed to get a bit of a...

Staff are friendly and generally the hotel is clean and well presented . The rooms could do the a makeover they look a little tired and the old...
