We stayed in the Holiday Inn Express on Saturday 12th July on a stag weekend. The rooms were well fitted and clean. Check-in was swift and friendly, the bar was not overpriced and the breakfast was good although bacon would have been nice! This is a good hotel in the city centre just off Union Street, there is a club,karioke...

A Cheap nightly rate at the weekend. Room clean, bed comfortable, and pleasant staff. Car parking a bit of a pain, as hotel has limited parking spaces. Room well equipped & modern with free wifi which is always welcome. Only down side was the selection for the cooked breakfast.. and lack of cutlery.

I stayed in June 2014 with a friend, travelled to Aberdeen for the Brewdog AGM which was held at the Exhibition & Conference Centre. In terms of location it was fine for that, a city centre base with a 5 minute walk to a bus stop and around 25 minutes out to the AECC, much better than staying out there....

Thanks for your review Andy N It's good to see that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the central location. The selection of breakfast items is unfortunately not directly within our control but I am aware that this is being addressed at a brand level so will hopefully improve soon.

Clean. Very central. Breakfast included. Free wifi. For the money, this is a great value hotel. Bed was a little bouncy but that's really splitting hairs. Would definitely recommend and will be transferring loyalty from novotel.
