I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend and his brothers for two nights in October for a family visit.
The hotel was chosen and booked for us by my boyfriends Dad who knows the area better than us. I am not sure of the exact price, but I believe it cost around £50 a night for each room. We had two rooms, a double for myself and my boyfriend, and a family room for his two brothers.
Before our visit I did something I shouldn't, I looked the hotel up on Trip Advisor. The reviews of this hotel on tripadvisor are awful. I wasn't too worried, we were literally just using this hotel to sleep in and get showers, we would be spending very little time there at all.
On arrival we were checked in very quickly. Our breakfasts had been paid for, and it was explained to use what time breakfasts started and finished. We were given our room numbers and went on our way.
I have stayed in many Travelodge's across the country and know exactly what to expect. They are basic, very, very basic and this is exactly what we got. You literally get your bed, storage space and TV (flat screen!).
The first problem we had was that our toilet wouldn't flush properly. We then noticed that the taps on the bath in the other room didn't work. This was complained about but nothing was done. The taps on the sink in our room were so difficult to turn off I resorted to shouting of my boyfriend every time I used the sink.
The double bed we had was the most uncomfiest bed I have ever slept in, we literally just sank into the middle.
These were just minor problems really, we were able to work around them for the two nights we were there. The only problem that did worry me a little was when we got in after a night out and turn on the radiator in the room. After about ten minutes I could smell burning, and notice the curtains were hanging over onto the radiator which wasn't good.
Other than these problems, the hotel was fine. It was clean and in an excellent location, in the middle of everything. Breakfast was okay, the scrabbled egg tasted like rubber, and I would say that been in such a central location you could go out and get a better breakfast from somewhere else.
Overall would we stay again, maybe, reasonably priced hotels in Aberdeen seem to be quite difficult to find.
Summary: Reasonably priced basic hotel
