Where to Stay in Aberdeen

The wonderful selection of accommodation on offer in Aberdeen shows what a truly amazing city this is.

A cosmopolitan city – the third largest in Scotland – Aberdeen offers a wide variety of arts and culture to tempt visitors, with its famous ‘granite mile’ on Union Street providing an appetising gateway to more than 800 shops, offering the latest in designer fashions to traditional and much sought-after Scottish crafts. Tire of the shopping and there are numerous restaurants and bars offering refreshment and nourishment.

For example, The Grill, opposite the Music Hall, although having a severely plain interior, is a haven for whisky connoisseurs. Aberdeen is also surrounded by some marvellous scenery, the best of it off the beaten track, so more adventurous outdoor types are also drawn to this location. as well as business people. That being so, places to stay are an essential part of what this proud city has to offer, and you will find it does so in style, from cosy bed and breakfast establishments to luxury hotels.

The three Skene House Hotels in the city are most popular. They are all in old tenement blocks and each room has its own kitchen and living area – basically an apartment that is run like a hotel. There is the Rosemount, alongside the imposing granite buildings of the public library, St Mark’s Church and HM Theatre – known locally as Education, Salvation and Damnation; Whitehall, which is still in the heart of the city, but off the main streets, and has its own garden, which helps to accentuate the more peaceful ambience; and Holburn, also in the centre but offering one or two bedroom suites which are perfect for business or leisure. For those who like to combine shopping, sightseeing and seaside, the Hilton Garden Inn is central yet only three miles from Aberdeen beach.
