Special visit made more special by Roy Gonzales

Aberdeen, United Kingdom

Great hotel, pool and staff! Half Board is an excellent option to go for. Breakfast buffet has lots of freshly prepared offerings. The evening buffet speaks for itself and the other set menus included offer great choices. To top it off, Roy Gonzales towel art was amazing!
