What has a gorgeous coastal trail, 55 golf courses and more whisky distilleries than anywhere else in Scotland?
Aberdeenshire, of course. Which makes it a pretty thrilling place to visit, as far as we’re concerned (and don’t forget the various castles and art galleries too).
Immerse yourself in the wonder of Scotland’s East Coast with today’s Big Deal on a restful getaway for two at the four star Aberdeen Altens Hotel.
Tailor your trip to suit you
Available Thursday to Sunday until 30th June 2019, this Big Deal is very flexible and has three options:
Option one is for an overnight bed and breakfast stay for two in a standard king room at Aberdeen Altens Hotel. This includes full access to the leisure club and swimming pool, as well as a lovely leisurely late checkout of 12pm.
Option two adds on a three course dinner for two to the above. Option three is for two nights, with dinner on the first night only.
So whether you fancy one or two nights away, and whether you choose to dine at the hotel or explore the restaurants of Aberdeen, this Big Deal has a choice that will suit you.
Aberdeen Altens is a modern, four star hotel just off the A90 and close to the city centre, making it a great base for exploring Scotland’s stunning East Coast.
Facilities include a leisure club, beauty therapist, hair salon, restaurant, lounge bar, free parking and free WiFi.
With this deal, you will be staying in a luxurious standard king room. This will include a super comfy Hypnos beds with soft duvets and crisp clean linen (helping you to drift off to sleep and wake up refreshed), plus a flat screen LCD TV, free WiFi, hairdryer and Nespresso coffee machine.
Hearty modern dishes
The hotel’s Cairngorm restaurant offers a choice of modern cuisine and filling favourites, complemented by a varied wine list.
Menus can change seasonally, but expect mains such as grilled whole sea bass with chilli & lime stir fry; oven-roasted chicken breast with sweet mango & cream sauce, and pan-fried mussels in tomato & garlic sauce with linguini pasta. Vegetarians can dine on dishes like chargrilled halloumi with baby potato salad.
Desserts could include the chocolate brownie, passionfruit cheesecake or selection of cheese and biscuits.
After dinner you can enjoy a wine, cocktail or even a Starbucks coffee in the Cairngorm Lounge Bar.
Leisure and beauty facilities
The hotel’s health & leisure club includes an indoor swimming pool, fully-equipped gym, spa pool, sauna and steam room. There are also a wide range of classes available.
If you fancy glamming yourself up before an evening meal at the Cairngorm, you can head to the beauty therapist and hair salon.
From exhilarating coastal walks to distillery tours to castles, you will have plenty to keep you busy on your mini-break.
And of course, there is the city of Aberdeen itself too, including the 12th century St. Machar’s Cathedral, the Maritime Museum and the tranquil Cruickshank Botanic Gardens.
Golfers will be spoilt for choice as well.
Aberdeen Altens has gained so many positive reviews on TripAdvisor that it has earned itself a Certificate of Excellence. Here are a few recent ones, edited for shortness:
‘Had a good time during our stay, staff very friendly and helpful, breakfast and evening meal nice, we enjoyed the leisure complex. We visit this hotel as much as we can as we enjoy the area and we will be back again.’
‘Anniversary break…you just can’t fault this hotel for value for money. We had a lovely supper in the hotel restaurant and their full breakfast in the morning. Also used the pool, the steam room and hot tub. All areas of our room were spotlessly clean. All in all a fabulous weekend.’
‘Great hotel, friendly check-in. Good location, as I drove to Aberdeen it was important to have a parking space. I was given a large bedroom which was clean and very quiet. Nice touch was the note from housekeeping hoping I enjoyed my stay. Breakfast was good, I am celiac, dairy free and vegetarian so there were options for me and the chef brought me out some lovely fruit. There were enough hot options and gluten free bread and cereal to ensure I had a good breakfast. Excellent value for money and good location.’
Treat yourself to an East Coast escape
Available until the end of June, today’s Big Deal from Aberdeen Altens Hotel offers three flexible options, meaning you can choose the spring getaway that suits you.
The hotel is perfectly based for exploring both Aberdeen and Scotland’s East Coast. However, you might find that you are enjoying the super comfy king room, swimming pool and Cairngorm Lounge Bar so much that you end up never straying over the door.
