The Perfect Experience

From first meeting Molly the co-ordinator and we'd decided to book the Sandman, the whole experience was great. Communication with Molly was great during the planning and she was always happy answering my queries and even gave some great advice for certain things that we followed.
The hotel has a policy of no confetti inside, which is understandable, but as we got married at the end of September I didn't want to risk an outside confetti shot, so I asked Molly if we could do a bubble tunnel instead and was so delighted that this was allowed inside, it ended up looking amazing.
6 months before the big day we attended a menu tasting at the hotel, run by Russel, this was a great night and helped us finalise our menu choices, which was hard to do as the packages and choices are all great.
The hotel is a beautiful old building, inside is modern and stunning. The locations for great photo's within the hotel are endless. Oh, and it's dog friendly so we were able to have our Collies with us for the ceremony and hung around for a few photo's, this was really special for us.
The day itself went so smoothly, I wondered why I'd been worrying about all the little details on the run up to it. Molly and Russel had everything in complete control and I can't thank them both enough for making the day so stress free and enjoyable, not only for myself and my husband, but for all the guests.
Having everything in one place was something we'd wanted for our day and this is the perfect venue for that. Using the mezzanine level for drinks and canapes after the ceremony was fantastic. I also have to mention the toilets next to the ballroom, amazing, giant mirror perfect for all the inevitable toilet selfies! Plus it was great to have toilets and the bar next to the ballroom so guests didn't have to use the main hotel facilities.
The ballroom is split in 2 for the ceremony and meal, I worried it would look empty with 50 guests for the meal, but it didn't. Then it's opened up for the reception with a large stage and massive dance floor! Very important! The best part about the ballroom is being able to pick the colours of lighting you want!
Guests who had never been to the hotel before commented how excellent it was. Also the meal, a few telling us it was the best wedding meal they'd had.
Overall we're so pleased we went with the Sandman, central location, easy for guests to get to and plenty of rooms for those who wish to stay, many of ours did and all had a great experience.
And it really was the most amazing day!

We had such a fabulous experience at the Sandman Signature in Aberdeen. We had stayed here 2 years prior to our big day for the first time and had got engaged that weekend. We knew this was the perfect hotel for our wedding. When enquiring about this hotel as a possible wedding venue we were put onto Molly, events manager. Molly made the process so easy, emailing back and forth the year before and keeping me updated. Also on our wedding day herself and Russel made the day run so smoothly, we were actually ahead of schedule! Molly made sure we were all on the same floor. It was a lovely relaxed wedding with all our own special touches in the Sandman. The meal was fantastic and a highlight of many of our guests trip. The hotel and waiting staff could not have been kinder/more helpful. Rooms were spotless and the suite was fantastic size for hair/make up/photography! would highly recommend I have nothing negative to say of this hotel.

Amazing Wedding Party!

The staff at the Sandman were amazing from start to finish - we were truly blown away by the commitment from all of them and this helped ensure our wedding party was perfect! Big shout out to Molly and Russell who helped us to put together exactly what we wanted for the night. As a bride I felt very looked after and had zero stress on the day, which was down to Molly doing everything behind the scenes to make this happen. The venue was a stunning setting for a wedding reception and we’re so glad we chose it. We had family and friends travel from all over and they all commented on how beautiful it was - not to forget the dirty fries bar which went down a treat!! Thank you so much to all at the Sandman for making it the most special night.

Our Wedding…

The Sandman was the perfect venue for our wedding. Originally we had booked the ballroom for a much larger occasion, but the pandemic made us re-evaluate what we really wanted, which was an intimate wedding with our closest family. Our ceremony and meal took place in the cosy Maple Suite and we enjoyed our drinks/canapés in the Whisky Lounge. All staff in the lead up and on the day itself were excellent, very attentive - we had no worries on the day and were able to enjoy ourselves and take it all in.
Food 10/10 - outstanding. All our guests were very complimentary and had no complaints or issues. The chef was great and accommodated for the different dietary requirements.
We honestly have no criticisms and would not hesitate recommending.

Our event at Sandman Signature Aberdeen was fantastic.

The events organiser Molly was very helpful in ensuring every detail of the event was covered. The Maple room and the dining table were set up beautifully. Staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive from the minute we arrived to when we departed. The menu choices offered were really good and the food served was delicious, guests commented that it was the best meal they had ever had at a hotel event. Overall the staff were so lovely, their friendliness and personal touch made a huge difference to our day feeling warm and cared for.
