Attending a social function at Portlethen, this Premier Inn was in an ideal location. But close enough to Aberdeen to be used. Staff were efficient, friendly and well informed. Rooms were spacious and the bed was very comfortable.

Rooms and staff very good but food questionable and the bath / shower / tap water tepid at best no hot bath for me!! I pointed out the water temp problem last stay but nothing has been done, I suspect its set very low as they doubt the ability of there guests not to burn themselves.

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you find our water temperatures not to your liking. However, although our water temperatures are set to a maximum level, the temperature should be set to a maximum of 44oC, which is too hot for most people. If you find your water temperature is too low in the future, please inform reception...

Stayed here as we had a few family things to do in and around Aberdeen over a couple of days. Very clean rooms and friendly staff. Good parking and breakfast was enjoyable. Handy being just off the main road and we didn't hear the traffic at all. Amazing price, especially considering it was Easter weekend. Would recommend a stay here...

It is nice to hear our guests talking about some of the wonderful attractions we have hear in the North East. So many of our guests are hear for business and we sometimes forget what is on our doorstep.

We stayed one night on our way north. The high standards we have now come to expect from Premier Inn were met in every way. The room was spotless and situated at the back of the hotel it was very quiet; although there was not much evidence of nearby traffic noise anyway. All the staff we met were exceedingly friendly...

Very friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble. The room was large, clean and had all the things you need and would expect. The bed was so comfortable too 🙂 The Brewers Fayre next door is also excellent with lovely food well priced. Would definitely stay here again.
