    Very good

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was of a good standard.However, the bed was very uncomfortable. Also, we were allocated a disabled room on arrival; would have preferred a regular room with a bath.

    Being allocated a room with less facilities than those we were travelling with, but paying the same price.

    A great, stylish, old charm hotel. Spacious, comfortable rooms.

    No early breakfast service on Sunday even though advertised. Forgot wake-up call.

    The hotel is in a great location for centre of Aberdeen. Also, car parking directly across from hotel which has a pretty cheap weekend rate compared to other Glasgow car parks.

    No wifi in the room. The hotel is looking a little bit tired now. The hotel at first didnt seem to find my booking but once I showed them the booking number it was found.

    Staff were attentive and helpful. There was a bulb out in one of the wall lights and the general lighting level in the room was poor. The toilet was needlessly small given the overall size of the room, for example the toilet roll was too close to shower and got wet. Bath was slow to drain so when showering had to stand in dirty water. Overall the stay was fine and ok value but more attention to detail needed when maids are servicing room.

    How can you ask what wasn't liked and for it not to be a complaint?? Apart from the two minor complaints above the hotel was pretty ok. The bathroom was very small given the overall size of the room but that is not easily changed.

    Abode has a fantastic loctation for city centre shopping and eating.

    The doors on the rooms had a habit of banging shut as opposed to closing quietly.

    Its convenient for the middle of the city. Nice old building.

    Seems a bit run down. There was considerable building work going on which was not apparent when we booked. Staff are surly.

    The FOOD in the restraunt was excellent and the staff also.

    Bar MC disappointing tables tired and service at breakfast was slow.

    Good

    The location of the hotel is excellent, and it's nice and low-key. The shower is excellent too.

    There is much that could be done easily to improve this hotel. The contemporary design of the renovated rooms looks nice - but there is very little storage space for clothes - just desk drawers, and more shelves are needed in the bathroom. The bed is extremely soft - clearly a new mattress, but not good for the back. Requests from housekeeping (extra blanket, etc.) were hit or miss. The closet doesn't close, and only has non-removable hangers, not very helpful in a rainy city where you sometimes want to hang wet clothes in the shower. A concierge or better resources at the reception desk would make a big difference.

    Fabulous

    Very clean large rooms. Very comfortable. Helpful and polite staff. Excellent breakfast.

    The lift is old fashoned and has an internal safety gate. If customers fail to close this the lift will not move. Some of the corridor doors bang when closing which can be disturbing at night. Soft door closers would solve this problem.

    Very good

    We liked the quirky design aspects within the hotel and the double height room gave an air of opulence.

    The window could not be easily shut and it was open when we arrived. This meant that the noise from the street outside during the early hours was intrusive and interrupted our sleep.
