Stayed here for 2 nights on business as the usual hotel I stay in was fully booked. Plenty of parking at the hotel (which is free of charge). Check in was quick and easy and the staff were very friendly. The room was a good size, but had a strange musty smell about it. The mattress on the bed was...

Im glad certain aspects of your stay were very good, and thanks for complimenting our food. The wifi is fast, free, easy to use, and throughout the property, so don't know what the problem was for you; no one else has expressed any views on it other than very positive. I also assume you were in a room with possible...

I came here with my mum and dad, very nice restaurant setting. Staff very attentive and on the ball so overall service was perfect. Lovely having some complementary bread before the starters, accompanied by some lovely oils/balsamic vinegar. Would have been nicer served slightly warm but was still a lovely touch. For our starters I had the Tian of Black...

I have stayed at the Craighaar many times over the years, it is a good, relatively inexpensive hotel for accommodation and is close to the airport (if you are visiting Aberdeen to be in town this probably isn't the place for you). As I said, close to the airport, you can see the end of the runway from the first...

Yesterday we had a small family lunch at the Craighaar for our Silver Wedding Anniversary. We were sat in the library which was a perfect size for the 14 of us, and a lovely setting. The hotel made it special by co-ordinating the setting in silver as an extra touch. We ate off the regular menu which had something for...

Held a 70th Birthday celebration in the Library dining room for 22 people. The room itself is a fabulous location. The staff, including the Function Manager, George, were attentive without being intrusive. All and any requests were met and dealt with immediately and with no fuss. The food, the service, the wine etc. were all beyond reproach. I would very...

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.
