The city of Aberdeen in northeast Scotland, the United Kingdom, has a wonderful transport hub, with its main train and bus station conveniently connected to a large indoor mall featuring retail shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and fresh snack stalls. Close to the city center you will find outstanding architecture, libraries, museums, a music hall, movie theater, and art galleries. Stay in a hotel in Old Aberdeen to explore the cobbled roads and historic universities that date back to the 15th and 16th centuries.

Stay in a hotel in Aberdeen to experience the True North, where the first light of day reaches the Scottish mainland.
Aberdeen has dozens of hotel options, with most situated close to the harbor and in the center of town, between Robert Gordon University and the University of Aberdeen. Some hotels in Aberdeen are located on the outskirts of the city, either inland or close to the shores of Aberdeen Bay.
Aberdeen does indeed have luxury-rated hotels with associated golf courses. These include:
Nightly rates at Macleod House and Lodge begin at about $225 for a superior room with two Queen beds. A Grand Deluxe King double room can cost as much as $325. Choose from a courtyard or a countryside view. Expect to pay approximately $250 per night and up at the Marcliffe Hotel and Spa. There is a range of different package options such as special golf and spa packages, among others.
Travelers can locate inexpensive yet very comfortable accommodations in Aberdeen's center. The Ibis Aberdeen Centre Quayside places you moments from the Maritime Museum and Academy, Provost Ross's House and Tollbooth Museum. There is a bar/lounge and restaurant on site. The Station Hotel is just opposite the rail station. This hotel is part of the Cairn hotel group and is centrally located near the Union Shopping Center, entertainment, and nightlife activities. These hotels cost an average of $64 a night. If you would like to spend even less on your hotel stay in Aberdeen, the Lochnagar Guest House offers free parking, convenient if you've rented a car and wish to explore the charms of the Scottish countryside.

There are some great family-friendly hotels in Aberdeen. One is the Skene House Hotelsuites – Rosemount, located just half a mile from the city center. This hotel features free parking and rooms with kitchens equipped with refrigerators and stovetops. They serve a free continental breakfast, are pet-friendly, and laundry facilities are available.
The Park Inn by Radisson is a four-star hotel near Union Terrace Gardens. There's a fitness center, restaurant, and lounge on site, and the hotel offers 24-hour room service.
I think Aberdeen is the most impressive of the Scottish cities with the granite buildings and stone streets. Beautiful and strangely haunting and well worth a day or two.
