Sharing a room with 2 friends for a birthday night out. Was a great room, very clean and the staff were lovely. Price for the room was also very reasonable.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JonfromLinde Generally poor and surprisingly expensive for HI Express
This hotel was an overnight stop over for me, during a series of business meetings around the UK. The hotel is centrally located in Aberdeen which is clearly an expensive place to stay due to the oil industry. That said, this hotel was not worth half of the massive huge fee per night I paid to stay there, I have stayed in better accommodation in central London for much less! Being a Holiday Inn Express there was no facility to eat dinner at the hotel, and the bar had the ambience of a morgue. I was advised that a chip shop, kebab shop and lively Weatherspoon's pub was just down the road. During my stay I was accommodated in a disabled room (101# which was sold to me as a benefit due to the increased space, this benefit soon turned into a negative as the room was situated right at the entrance hallway to the rooms and the hallway door #virtually outside of my room) banged and clattered right through the night as patrons entered and exited their rooms. Soundproofing this hotel is non-existent, I could hear the guy next door snoring and farting in his sleep surprisingly clearly. The bathroom of my room was specially modified to aid access by wheelchair bound patrons, which lead to it having a 'wet-room' style shower, but the bathroom was entirely unheated and has a sink so small that I couldn't even get the room kettle into it to make a cup of coffee, never mind shave with any semblance of convenience. Breakfast was appalling, situated in the dismal bar area the hot buffet consisted of a heated terrine of baked beans and some sausages. Toast and reasonable coffee saved my morning but simple things like laying out the order of the buffet correctly would help. Maybe even providing a few knives to butter ones toast would be a cheap and easy attempt to enhance the breakfast experience which was grim. Overall this hotel was generally poor and surprisingly expensive for a Holiday Inn Express. Not recommended.
