What’s your diary looking like for the next few months?
If all that’s inside of it is supermarkets, TV box sets and acres of tumbleweed, then it’s badly in need of an emergency intervention.
For starters, how about an overnight getaway to a four-star boutique hotel in the coastal culture hub of Aberdeen?
Cirque de Soleil, We Will Rock You and the Inverurie Beer Festival are all coming up in the area soon. But even if those aren’t your bag, you will still find plenty to do in Aberdeenshire, from shopping to golfing to scenic seaside strolls…
Striking four-star hotel
Based in a landmark building, Malmaison Aberdeen is a sleek design hotel and a stone’s throw from the city centre. Big beds, power showers and creative décor all promise a very comfy stay.
The hotel also includes the stylish Chez Mal Brasserie, two bars, relaxing spa treatment area, Gymtonic fitness studio and 24-hour room service.
Overnight getaway for two
Today’s Big Deal has two options. Option one is for an overnight stay for two with the hotel’s great breakfast selection included.
Option two is for an overnight stay for two with breakfast and a two course, prix fixe dinner, choosing a starter and main or main and dessert.
You will have plenty of time to make the most of your getaway as it is available Thursday to Monday until the 30th April. You can also stay on Fridays for a £20 supplement and Saturdays for a £40 supplement.
Intimate brasserie dining
If you choose option two, then you can enjoy a two course prix fixe meal in Chez Mal brasserie, which serves up seasonal British dishes with an international twist.
Sample tempting mains including miso glazed beef short rib with carrot & orange puree; roast Cumbrian chicken breast with truffle gnocchi, and steamed mushroom & red onion suet pudding.
Afterwards, you can sample the selection of wines, ales and drams in the cosy Whisky Snug or head for a classic cocktail in the buzzy Malbar.
Malmaison Aberdeen is just a short drive from Union Square Shopping Centre, the Music Hall and all of the main city centre attractions.
Plus you’ll have the whole of the rugged East Coast to explore, as well as the distilleries of Speyside and one of Scotland’s best golfing scenes.
Of course, if you’d rather just cosy up together in this chic and comfy hotel, then there’s absolutely nothing stopping you.
This TripAdvisor user loved their stay at Malmaison Aberdeen:
‘Had a fantastic stay at this excellent hotel and highly recommend it to someone looking to get somewhere romantic. The staff were excellent, especially Rhea at the front desk who went above and beyond to help with my enquiries about booking a suite for my anniversary. I will definitely go back every year with my wife to celebrate our anniversary.’ 5/5
Why not surprise someone special this year with an overnight stay in a boutique four-star hotel in vibrant Aberdeen?
With a comfy room, great breakfast selection and the chance to include a meal at Chez Mal, this is definitely the kind of gift that will earn you serious brownie points.
