Ref our party night booking ref BWDN297 Approx.30 of us. Although the atmosphere was pretty good and buzzing, the layout of the tables and where we were situated was shocking, way too crammed and literally couldn't move. So difficult to get in and out, we were not impressed. The service was pretty poor, and for the amount of people there the bar service was ridiculous with only 2 people serving and it took forever to get a round of drinks in. We constantly had to clear our table of glasses and used xmas crackers, etc. One waiter at our table was quite rude, and we had a lady who requested a fruit salad for dessert because the others were not suitable due to her intolerances, and although we should probably have requested this earlier in the booking, surely a fruit salad is quick and easy to be put together. However, she was told the only fruit available was for decoration purposes - I mean really !!! So for over a £1000 just for our meal, i would say it was nice, although where we were sitting it took forever to get to us. Maybe if we were situated elsewhere it could have been a very different story. We will come back, probably NOT, unfortunately .... Albeit we had a good night, but this was down to our company and not the services provided by the Carmelite.

We had booked Blue Brothers Christmas Night at Carmellite. It was meant to be held in the ballroom - but they said not enough tickets sold so we were down in the restaurant where it was a bit squashed. Also, the menu was not the same as what we were expecting either so that was a disappointment. The food we had however was lovely and service was amazing. The piano player when we were having meal was a little drole could of done with something a little more upbeat as Christmas, but once the main entertainment came to stage it soon livened up. All in all a good night - but would of been a lot better if we got what we paid for.

We were really disappointed with our service. There was hardly any staff available, the place was very cold and dark. And one of my friends was sick after having the brunch menu of poached eggs. Also giving people two hours slots is very rude. I wasn't told this on the phone call yet on the email of my booking it said we had to leave by 2pm.

Food was excellent and service was really good. Enjoyed the show even though it wasn't what I was expecting. Would definitely recommend and will be back. NHS discount is an extra incentive too.

Although I enjoy live music I felt that the music on arrival was extremely loud as the restaurant was quiet - it was difficult to have a conversation across the table. The singer was also intrusive and wasn’t great. The food was mediocre for the prices being charged. The Prosecco and wine were nice although the wine that we wanted was unavailable. Service, however was good.

Terrible experience. One person couldn’t make the high tea however we were charged for the space, how ridiculous. Champagne was poor quality. Cake stands arrived and ten minutes later we had to ask for the actual tea. Bruschetta's were hard, salmon was tasteless. Absolute lack of sandwiches and food in general and a Poor offering in the sweet section. There was no butter or cream for the scones and no knifes to spread the jam. All in all a very disappointing experience, poor value for the money and we won’t be visiting again. Unfortunately I also book my Company Christmas night out at the The Hotel and feel that having been overcharged for someone that wasn’t there was such a bad service I’m forced to rethink the booking and possibly book elsewhere. Very expensive for a poor and underwhelming experience.

I cannot fault the venue at all, everyone who has been to the Carmelite knows how visually stunning the interior is, a brilliant gem of Aberdeen. I think £65 odds for afternoon tea for two adults and two children is way over the top considering what you get on the plates. We had two separate metal tiers of three small plates delivered to the table. Per tier we had two scones on the top plate with warm skoosky can cream and 2 small pots of Jam. The middle tier was 2 very thin slices of Lemon cake, 2 x 1.5cm squares of millionaire shortbread much like the m&s individual bites, 2 toffee mini muffins (two bite efforts) and one square of a chocolate mint bar cut in half. The bottom plate was the ‘sandwiches’. We had egg sandwiches which were two slices of crustless white bread cut into three thin soldiers, a 4 inch and very thin tuna wrap cut in half, ham & chilli jam on brown bread sandwiches which in the manner the were cut were actually just 2 triangles when placed together making just one half of a standard sandwich. There were also 2 mini rolls and coronation chicken. Two pots of tea and two small cups of apple juice, refills were at extra cost. Service wise I don’t think the venue was too busy but the staff were not really keen on attending the table, we had to go looking each time. The staff were friendly however as you will know. £65 for the above just isn’t right, I can’t recommend the venue for this. Sorry guys but two adults and two young kids shouldn’t be at that cost, to be fair I can’t see how it would be acceptable to charge adults £13.50 each for what you get anyway and can understand why it’s pushed on groupon so much.

I made the booking after viewing the Carmelite Hotel web site and being attracted to the listing of Dan Greavey singing on Friday 27th Sept between 21:00 - 22:00. I visited the hotel in person on Tuesday 24th confirmed with whom I believe to be a manager that Dan Greavey was to be playing on Friday 27th, which he confirmed. I at that point made the booking for 4 people @ 21:00 for dinner. Looking forward to our meal along with live music (Dan Greavey) only to find on the night Dan Greavey was not playing. The whole evening was a let down as the package I had sought did not happen. Very disappointed and will be reluctant to visit the Carmelite Hotel in the future.
