... and we spend time admiring an eclectic collection. The Kirk of St Nicholas, the first record of which is 1157, is amazing and houses the very old and the very new. A stained glass window depicts contemporary oil rigs and helicopter platforms, yet the pews have carved wooden entry doors and the tapestries date back centuries. We chance upon Marks & Spencer - she is ...
We had a lovely sleep in our fantastic suite then headed for a bacon sannie before catching our ride to Heathrow T5 from Hilton Gatwick. The traffic was quite bad, maybe something to do with 100 car pile up not a million miles away.
After a quick bag drop we headed to the South BA Terraces lounge where we had a ...
... out to the #1 restaurant of Aberdeen, sushi! Ashe was extremely happy as she loves sushi and was not disappointed. This was fantastic seafood and the meal was amazing.
We went for a drive and a walk along the oceanfront and it was freezing! The wind, the rain and the mid teens temperature will be a challenge over the next few days for us North Queenslanders!!!

Today I did nothing and I am not going to blab on for ages because all I literally did the whole day was sit in my room and read my book that I am addicted to and then pack my bags. That was pretty much my day summed up. However tomorrow I am off on the train to Edinburgh YAY ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Aberdeen Central
Good Hotel If On Supersaver Rate
Well me and my girlfriend have stayed here nice twice.. and have found it to be a nice enough hotel.
its right in the centre of union street.. so pefect for shopping and going out.
The room is of good size for 2 people. Just your run of the mill travelodge. Basically good cleanliness.. reasonably modern look and easy to check in
I would add though that its more worth the stay if you get the cheap 26 quid a night deal .... id be reluctant to pay 46 pound a night.. as there are a few other hotels on offer for near that price that are off higher quality
Overall Good stay :)
The worst place I have stayed in, in my life!!!
To start the room stank of smoke (a family non-smoking room), The room was filthy, the windows looked like they had not been cleaned in months (we had to wipe them with toilet paper just to see out), The door had been punched in one side (huge hole) and kicked on the other(another huge hole)!
The bed looked like it had been slept in, It comprised of a fitted sheet and a smelly duvet cover which honestly was as if it was weeks old (not been changed).
When we complained to management we were given a can of air freshener and told there were no more rooms! Good luck to any one who stays her!!
Travelodges!!! As cheap as they may seem they are not worth it unless you want one night and are going out so only need somewhere to kip. They are more "no frills" than easyjet!
The hotel is situated in the heart of Aberdeen. Apart from this fact it has nothing going for it.
Aberdeen Budgies... too noisy!
The noise of the Aberdeen Seagulls is reknown. So why have ill fitting windows which won't close? I had a limited amount of sleep for my stay. There was no remote for the TV and the bath took 10 mins to empty. The rooms are getting tidier but the whole place needs a refit. The smell in the lifts and the corridors are bad, though the room itself was ok.
Stayed at the Bridge St. Travelodge for 3 nights in August. Family room for 4 cost £210 which seemed reasonable. Room overlooked Union St which meant lots of rowdy drunks till 1 - 2 in the mornings. Room looked shabby and run down. No sockets by the bedside. Hot and cold taps which didn't turn off fully. Filthy windows covered in seagull droppings. Had to ask for towels to be changed daily. Insufficient supplies of coffee, milk. Staff were extremely friendly, which helped matters. A great location for nearby hotels, bars, shops and eateries. If you are content with basic, barrack block style accommodation, this is for you.
I stayed here for one night in May. I thought it was a bit dodge when I entered the building. You enter a hallway and have to get the lift up to reception. Staff are friendly. I didn't check out the food etc so can comment on that. The double room was large but seemed a bit run down or needed a bit of updating. As I was only staying for a night I travelled light and didn't take any shampoo/shower gel with me as I thought this would be supplied but it was'nt (only a small bar of soap!) so I had to go out and buy a few bits! We were given a room at the back of the hotel because we were told it is noisy at the front so I least we were looked after there. This hotel is located on Union St so you are right in the heart of everything which is good. I'd reccommend this hotel if you are not fussy at all. We paid £60 for a double room which did not include breakfast. I would stay here again if I couldn't get another hotel in the centre. I would recommend the Holiday Inn Express on Chapel St which is a lot better, brighter and more modern with all mod cons etc. We got a double room there for £49 which also included breakfast!
I think the Travelodge is a great base for a night out. I live in London and come up frequently to have a night out with friends. Check in is very simple - hand over your card and sign - done! Rooms clean and tidy - en suite has soap but no other products. There were loads of towels and 2 plastic cups wrapped for hygiene. There was coffee and tea facilities with china mugs. The bed was very comfy and there were extra pillows in the wardrobe if you needed them. The bath is not very deep so no chance of a real soak but that's not really what you go to a Travelodge for is it? The TV had satellite channels and also radio stations which is great for listening to music while getting ready. The phone takes credit cards which gets rid of the need for any time wasted on check out. The bar opens at 6pm and as far as I can see, will serve you drink any time you like from then onwards. The door is locked late at night so you must ring the bell and let them know which room number you are in and what your surname is. The door is next to the side entrance for the Trinity Centre so optimum place for shopping! There were plenty of sockets for phone chargers etc. and a really large mirror and table for putting on make-up. I did not personally find it noisy and I was there on a Saturday night but I would imagine if you are there for a quiet break to go elsewhere such as the Marcliffe at Pitfodels or Norwood Hall hotel. If you want a no hassle base for a night out central to bars and shops and easy check-out then this is the hotel for you. There is a soft drinks vending machine in the hall and a restaurant serving evening meals from 6. They do an all you can eat buffet breakfast for about 6 pounds too but that is your choice and you pay for it separately. What I personally do is once I have checked in, I head down to Marks and Spencers, buy a bottle of Champagne, some orange juice, some crisps and a chicken pasta salad and get a plastic fork to go with it. I then drink the Champagne while getting ready, go out and when I come back, I drink the orange juice and have the crisps and salad - top way to spend an evening when you get the munchies. No need to queue at the nasty pizza place across the road.
I stayed here for one night and was kept awake into the wee small hours by
1: the noise from Union Street. Traffic noise, drunk people and the noise from the traffic lights beeping when the green man is on (!).
2: drunk people stumbling down the corridor and banging on my room door several times during the night.
3: the phone in the room ringing randomly during the night.
I was there for a night out and went to bed at two or three in the morning and was still kept awake for hours by the above.
The next day, there was sick down the corridor outside our room.
We couldn't get out of there fast enough and would NEVER go back. Not worth the hassle!
NOISE, NOISE NOISE!!!
I stayed one night at this travel lodge and got NO SLEEP AT ALL. I moved rooms three times but could still here the noise from Union Street. The rooms are in need of a makeover and the furniture is shabby ( one of the rooms even had a broken chair in it - how safe is that!). The elevator smelt of vomit and urine. I would never recommend this travel lodge to anyone.
