Overlooking the River Don, Hillhead campus is located less than two miles from Aberdeen Beach and the city centre, and a ten-minute walk from the main University campus.

Every room comes complete with fresh linen and towels.

We guarantee that all our feedback is genuine and can only be submitted by people who have booked through our websites.
Mr Maurice Staples, September 2012: As I just needed a bed for the night in order to catch an early flight, my views will be somewhat skewed. Basically I arrived, checked in, went to room, ate, showered, went to bed, got up checked out and left. The checking in staff are great, the room was basic but that was all I needed and the price was not too bad.
I will certainly book again if I am passing through again.
Miss Laura Abecasis, September 2012: The standard of the room was basic but its a residence for students, it cannot be evaluated as a B&B or hotel... Good value for money though, we wanted only a bed for the night.
Mr paul flaherty, August 2012: great value for money,excellent facillities,only fault,no sign on kitchen door other than fire door keep closed so didn't find it for 3 days
Mr Edwin McGarrity, July 2011: better than a hotel for value. I leave early and I just need a bed and and a morning shower. this does the job well. i can recommend.
