My sister and I decided to book the Scrumptious Afternoon Tea as an early Mother's Day treat for our Granny and Mum before heading to the theatre. We arrived 15 minutes early and were seated away from all of the other customers at a table with no table cloth (randomly the only one) at the back of the room to...

This was a beautiful hotel that simply compliments how beautiful the City of Aberdeen is. Stunning rooms. Bathroom was as big as the bedroom. Nice view Into the streets of Aberdeen but still private. 5*

Stayed here for 1 night when working in the town. The room was lovely, great decor, slept very well. The staff were slightly unusual, I don't want to be personal to anyone however it was a little odd. The rooms however were lovely. And made for a pleasant stay

On arrival, staff were very helpful & friendly. After our order & lunch ALL went down hill... table service was very slow, waiter did apologise as they were very busy! ( should have been staffed). The lunch itself was tiny plateful. Other places in ABZ I would rather go.

Had a last minute trip to Aberdeen and found a room at the carmelite for under £60. So I decided to go ahead and book, not expecting anything more than a single room, the room was spacious and lovely inside. I grabbed a bite to eat in the restaraunt as well, which was really nice. Service was good. Would Defo...

I made my booking on-line and at short notice and arrived at 0130. The staff member who met me was friendly and efficient and explained a possible fault on the door lock of my room. Everything was fine however and the room was excellent, it's a shame I couldn't stay longer.

Bar/ restaurant always full of either tables of over 50 something women celebrating a big birthday with prosecco afternoon tea or tables enjoying the resident jazz musicians. Great if you are party central - but not so good if you are trying to sleep ! When you arrive in a hotel room and there is 2 pairs of earplugs on...

We stayed here from Friday 24th to Sunday 26th. Hotel is in a great location within walking distance from town centre. Food was lovely and all staff during our stay were brilliant they all work so hard and nothing was ever a problem to them. Our room was very small not much room, lighting in the rooms could be brighter...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Carmelite is neatly positioned in the centre of Aberdeen's Merchant Quarter, which is adjacent to the transport hub of rail, bus, coach stations and harbour. The Merchant Quarter is the "grown up" area of the city, full of independent bars and restaurants, and surrounded by the city's 5 under-cover retail shopping centres. An historical Grade B listed building dating back to mid 1800's, Carmelite has undergone major refurbishment program over recent years, introducing a boutique environment on the ground floor of Carmelite Bar & Grill, whilst the 50 bedrooms offer a mix of "Designer" Suites and rooms on the 1st floor, "Dapper" rooms refurbished end of 2012, on the 2nd floor and comfortable standard rooms on the 3rd floor. These enable attractive rates to suit all budgets. Aberdeen is a commercial city, with limited accommodation mid-week, however weekends offer some fantastic deals making an alternative visitor experience very affordable. The 6 Suites are all different, and very quirky - from round beds in turrets, and gigantic sleigh beds, all designer rooms have cast iron baths, monsoon showers. The "Dapper" rooms have un-cluttered designs with a mix of large monsoon shower rooms, double ended steel baths (some designed with 'no taps'), and black-out window blinds. All the bespoke furniture in these rooms were made by A social Enterprise Company in Dundee, called Dovetail. The 3rd floor standard rooms, although not yet refurbished, offer clean, comfortable accommodation, still with all the usual amenities. All rooms have luxury beds made locally by Social Enterprise Aberdeen Company called Glencraft. Designer "Anatomicals" or "Keiji" bath products, 32/40" LED Samsung Freeview TVs, as well as clocks, iPhone docking stations, tea/coffee making facilities, and most rooms with iron and ironing boards. A room service menu is available during restaurant times.The ground floor also is a boutique environment, quirky with a large open plan lounge and dining area, with informal comfy sofas, a Baby Grand Piano playing at weekends, and a dining 4 Poster Bed. The comprehensive bar menu offers superb cocktails, 12 champagnes, and extensive wine and drinks as well as a bar nibbles food options. Menus cover breakfast and brunch from a "Wake Up till Noon" menu, then an A'la Carte "All Day Menu" available from 12noon through till dinner. There is a Shoppers Menu available till 5pm each day with £8 main courses, and a Market Menu options each evening.
