Way back in the mists of time, Aberdeen was home to a friary of Carmelite monks.
The monks have long moved but the name lives on at Carmelite, a boutique hotel in the vibrant Merchant Quarter of the city.
Get into the habit of enjoying yourself with today’s Big Deal on a luxurious stay at the Carmelite.

The deal includes a bottle of Chaumet Sparkling Perry in room on arrival, two course dinner and a Not Guilty value breakfast each morning.
A lighter cooked breakfast, the Not Guilty is one rasher of bacon, a sausage, mushroom, half tomato and fried egg on toast.
The gorgeous Designer King rooms rooms are smartly decorated with designer wall coverings and feature king-size beds, 36” plasma screens.
The Dapper Doubles feature designer wallpapers, new bathrooms, bespoke furniture; double or king-sized beds and LCD TVs with Freeview.

There are lots of ways in which you can upgrade your stay. A supplement of £5 will turn your bottle of sparkling perry into a bottle of Prosecco and you can also swap your Not Guilty value breakfast for a full cooked version for an extra £5.
Carmelite also has an eclectic range of extravagant rooms and suites available for supplements starting at £30.
For example, you could upgrade to the Antique suite for an extra £75.
Featuring a twin roll top bath, sleigh bed and period furniture, it’s a beautiful suite for romantic break.
A five minute walk from the Railway station, Union Square, Union Street and Trinity, the Carmelite is in a great location.
It is also a convenient hotel to stay at for drivers – there are some 3700 car parking spaces within five minutes.
The Carmelite has plenty of fans who love its stylish rooms and central address. Edited from longer reviews, this is what a recent TripAdvisor reviewer had to say of her visit:
‘Will book again. Modern, chic hotel… Have stayed in several other hotels in Aberdeen and this is my personal favourite by far. Room very clean and well presented. Will 100% use again in the future.’
‘A break away. The location is near the station. We arrived and were greeted with a lovely welcome. We were taken to our room, the Dapper suite, and it was lovely and clean. We had our evening meals there and the menu was excellent. The staff were amazing and nothing was too much bother to them. The breakfasts were cooked fresh and brought to our table.’
Perfect for enjoying a weekend or weekday break in the Granite City, today’s Big Deal with the Carmelite is the sort of offer that would make even the most dedicated monk break his vows.
