          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The welcoming greeting and friendly staff at reception set the stamp for what turned out to be a very enjoyable stay. Nothing was too much trouble and their enthusiastic offers of help was a travellers delight. This willingness to assist permeated through all the hotel staff. The hotel is also ideally suited for a shopping break as it is a short walk from the main shopping centres.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            The location was very convenient for shopping, buses,and the airport bus

            What I did not like and this is a complaint, being on the 4th and highest floor. There was very little water coming through the shower and this would be a factor when deciding whether to stay at this hotel on any future visits to Aberdeen

            10.0

            Stayed here before a few years ago and loved it, wouldnt stay anywhere else now . I recommend paying a little extra and having an executive room we had the glenlossie suite and ur was gorgeous.

            Hotel staff was very friendly, the location is very near to shopping center.

            Central location

            Did not think the superior room was anything special. Not worth the premium.

            This is the 4th time that my wife and i have stayed at the Douglas hotel,and have enjoyed everyone.Our recent stay was a special treat for my 65 th Birthday,which i enjoyed very much indeed,thanks to the staff.Yours Mr J Ritchie.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            We had yet another excellent stay in the Aberdeen Douglas Hotel - this being our third visit - we travelled by car and were able to park in the Hotel car park for the full weekend at a minimal cost - each and everyone of the staff were so helpful, polite, courteous and could not do enough for us - our room was first class (as it had been on previous stays) - there was an outstanding choice of items at breakfast which was very enjoyable and we ate in the bistro on two of our three nights and on one of the nights brought two friends in for a meal which they also enjoyed. We could not fault this hotel and will not visit Aberdeen in the future without booking our room in the Douglas beforehand. Many thanks to everyone at the hotel.

            The only slight negative comment we would make would be that the plates at breakfast time were cold - if there was a way of keeping the plates warm then this would be our only request - thanks.

            Location perfect for city center, rooms were good size, clean & nice decor with large flat screen tv. Breakfast quality and choice great, room rate great value for money.

          • Couple
            6.2

            Nice room great location just off union street shopping, nightlife train and bus station walking distance.

            Was asked to pay for the hotel when I had already payed online but not only that I was asked for double. Finally got over that and then the room we were in the window never closed so room was cold asked for extra blanket but had to as again and again. On the final day we were woken by a fire alarm but we called reception and told na its ok forget about it??? When we got to the check out desk we were told "haha you got woken by the fire alarm good wake up call eh"

            Large room, full breakfast included, clean, friendly staff, location great for nearness to train station and sites

            Door of room was a bit tricky to open: they still use actual keys

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Although an old hotel, they have done a relatively good job of keeping it maintained. It was comfortable. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was fine. The location can't be beat if you are either walking around the city or coming in on the Northlink ferry.

            Rather limited TV channel selection. Internet connection best in public areas. But if you are out and about, these shouldn't matter.

          • Single
            5.8

            The room was comfortable and the reception staff were lovely. The bathroom was especially nice and the hotel in general is lovely.

            I said that the cleanliness of the room was poor, but this was really only because of the cushions on the bed - they had a horrible smell on them and even white (i hate to think what that was) stains on them, which made me feel rather sick. I also found it to be quite noisy (coming from outside even with windows closed). I was told a couple of days after my stay that the hotel was a favourite with prostitutes, again making me feel sick to my stomach as to just what nastyness really was on them cushions.

          • Older travelers
            8.0

            The location suited our need perfectly. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food well presented although the choice was a little disappointing. The room we had was extremely comfortable but the windows were in need of cleaning. On the whole very happy and will return
