"Truly exceptional service and fantastic meal

"We were attending a dance at the Northern on Saturday night so decided to visit early and grab a meal before the event. Unfortunately we should have booked, all tables were booked and 3 groups of people waiting. After a wee discussion with a waiter, he offered to serve us a meal in the ballroom where the dance was being held. We got our drinks delivered to the reception area and menus arrived immediately.Despite being busy the meal arrived within 15 minutes and I had the Tagliatelle Carbonara and the others had Tagliatelle Carbonara with chicken and 2 x roast chicken dinners. I must state that the Tagliatelle Carbonara was probably the best I have ever eaten in any Aberdeen restaurant. It was absolutely delicious and a huge portion ( just how I like it). The pasta was cooked to absolute perfection, with just little bite in the pasta. The sauce was creamy, rich and very tasty, overall, packed with flavour. No complaints for the other diners, the roast chicken dinners were served with stuffing, creamy mash, vegetables and rich gravy. Overall a fantastic experience.

We can't thank the waiter enough who offered to serve the meals in the ballroom. They were really busy in the dining room and this must have caused an extra bit of stress they probably didn't need on a Saturday night.

Many thanks and we will be sure to book on our next visit. "

"Lovely Place and Great Service

"Have stayed at this hotel a few times and now really should do a review as I have forgetten the last couple of times.

Fantastic service, friendly staff and management... Room are always clean, fresh and comfortable. Whether you pay full price or get a deal (some great deals to be had), I can always recommend this place as I have never had a bad room or experience here.

The restaurant serves what can only be described as an amazing traditional Scottish breakfast and has by far the nicest haggis I have had whilist staying in Scotland.

I will always try and stay here when on business but beware, this place is always busy and you need to book a few weeks in advance most times but well worth the planning.

I really must try and come up stay here for personal pleasure soon."
