Booked the mad hatters tea party as the start off to my hen night and it was really good. I would have been better if we were able to pay the bill at the end rather than having to run up to the bar to pay after every round but other than that very enjoyable!

Situated two minutes away from the bus and train station in the Merchant area of Aberdeen, two minutes from Union Street, could not be better. On arrival a bit confusing as there is no clear reception area, you have to go to the bar to request assistance, however this is just a small issue. The rooms are well equipped with...

My boyfriend and I stayed in the hotel while visiting Aberdeen for 2 nights. Following good reviews, I booked this hotel and I was not disappointed. On arrival, there was a very good atmosphere in the hotel with guests enjoying high tea, live jazz music/singer. The hotel had a unique style which was nice. Our Standard Double.. was standard basic...

I went for afternoon tea with my mum and sister. Lovely service and very attentive. I had the gluten free option and the hunnybuns cakes were lovely. The other ladies had a regular option with scones and tray bakes. My only slight disappointment was the overly sweet victoria sandwich cake. Fresh cream would have been a better option and less...

I used to use the Point Hotel a lot in Edinburgh. It offered comfort with a unique design and had a very individual feel about it. The staff felt proud of this and their great service all stood the testament to a unique product. Then Hilton bought it over - I no longer use that hotel. However, in Aberdeen there...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Carmelite is neatly positioned in the centre of Aberdeen's Merchant Quarter, which is adjacent to the transport hub of rail, bus, coach stations and harbour. The Merchant Quarter is the "grown up" area of the city, full of independent bars and restaurants, and surrounded by the city's 5 under-cover retail shopping centres. An historical Grade B listed building dating back to mid 1800's, Carmelite has undergone major refurbishment program over recent years, introducing a boutique environment on the ground floor of Carmelite Bar & Grill, whilst the 50 bedrooms offer a mix of "Designer" Suites and rooms on the 1st floor, "Dapper" rooms refurbished end of 2012, on the 2nd floor and comfortable standard rooms on the 3rd floor. These enable attractive rates to suit all budgets. Aberdeen is a commercial city, with limited accommodation mid-week, however weekends offer some fantastic deals making an alternative visitor experience very affordable. The 6 Suites are all different, and very quirky - from round beds in turrets, and gigantic sleigh beds, all designer rooms have cast iron baths, monsoon showers. The "Dapper" rooms have un-cluttered designs with a mix of large monsoon shower rooms, double ended steel baths (some designed with 'no taps'), and black-out window blinds. All the bespoke furniture in these rooms were made by A social Enterprise Company in Dundee, called Dovetail. The 3rd floor standard rooms, although not yet refurbished, offer clean, comfortable accommodation, still with all the usual amenities. All rooms have luxury beds made locally by Social Enterprise Aberdeen Company called Glencraft. Designer "Anatomicals" or "Keiji" bath products, 32/40" LED Samsung Freeview TVs, as well as clocks, iPhone docking stations, tea/coffee making facilities, and most rooms with iron and ironing boards. A room service menu is available during restaurant times.The ground floor also is a boutique environment, quirky with a large open plan lounge and dining area, with informal comfy sofas, a Baby Grand Piano playing at weekends, and a dining 4 Poster Bed. The comprehensive bar menu offers superb cocktails, 12 champagnes, and extensive wine and drinks as well as a bar nibbles food options. Menus cover breakfast and brunch from a "Wake Up till Noon" menu, then an A'la Carte "All Day Menu" available from 12noon through till dinner. There is a Shoppers Menu available till 5pm each day with £8 main courses, and a Market Menu options each evening. There are two event rooms, Library and Balmoral for delegates up to 120, private dining to 50 diners, and Mad Hatter Tea Parties from 20 people.
