A city break is a great way to chip away at the bleakness of the winter months in Scotland. Aberdeen, that buzzing northern metropolis, makes an engaging option for a refreshing escape and a chance to engage in a spot of shopping, culture and relaxation.
Today’s Big Deal extends an invitation to take advantage of comfortable city centre accommodation at the Craibstone Suites, the perfect base for a leisurely exploration of this historic and vibrant city.
Space and style
The Craibstone Suites are serviced apartments within a Grade B listed townhouse on the quiet but very central Bon Accord Square.
Individually-styled suites offer comfortable, contemporary décor accommodation with fully-equipped kitchens, ideal for fixing a late supper or snack after an evening enjoying Aberdeen’s attractions.
Available seven days a week, the Big Deal option one is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a Studio Executive suite with complimentary breakfast essentials pack.
Option two is for a two-night stay in a Studio Executive suite with breakfast essentials pack.
Options three and four are for an overnight stay and two-night stay respectively in a Grand Executive suite with breakfast essentials pack.
Options five and six are for an overnight stay and two-night stay respectively in a Superior suite with breakfast essentials pack.
There is the opportunity to upgrade to a room with a balcony or terrace for an additional £10 per night, availability permitting.
Comfort and convenience
The Craibstone Suites offer an inviting home from home for your city break, with more space and privacy than a conventional hotel room.
Spacious and well-appointed suites feature free WiFi access, daily housekeeping, LCD TVs with over 50 channels and fully equipped kitchens – hob, fridge and microwave oven with all crockery is included.
Complimentary breakfast essentials pack, including tea and coffee, are provided in each room.
Out and about
The Craibstone Suites pride a handy base for a short break in Aberdeen. The tranquil location on the elegant and well-preserved Bon Accord Square is just a short step from Union Street and the city centre.
The city celebrates its colourful Winter Festival over the holiday period, while Aberdeen’s cultural highlights early in 2016 include Scottish Ballet’s premiere of Cinderella from 20 January and the Manipulate Festival of international theatre and film in late January and early February. The Sound of Music also arrives in the city in mid-January.
Aberdeen’s shops and restaurants are a perennial attraction, and historic sites such as St. Machar’s Cathedral and the Gordon Highlanders Museum are fascinating places to spend a relaxing hour or two exploring.
If you are using public transport to arrive in Aberdeen or explore the region, the train and bus stations are just a short stroll from the Craibstone Suites.
