Aberdeen Hotels

From guesthouses and bed and breakfasts to country piles masquerading as high-end hotels, Aberdeen has plenty of accommodation options across the city. The captive market for hotels has long been the oilies (oil industry workers), meaning that the quality of accommodation has only recently caught up with improved standards elsewhere in the UK. A welcome addition in recent years is the city’s aparthotels, which have boosted choice and competition.

The Aberdeen hotels below have been handpicked by our guide author and are grouped into three pricing categories:
Luxury (over £180)
Moderate (£80 to £180)
Cheap (under £80)
