Aberdeen, Scotland's dynamic heart in the northeast, is a city that enthrals its rich history, stunning coastline, and vibrant cultural scene. Whether you're planning a getaway with friends, a reunion with family, or a work retreat with colleagues, Aberdeen offers something for everyone. But finding the perfect accommodation for a group can sometimes feel like a puzzle.

Here's where multi-bedroom apartments shine—they offer a comfortable and cost-effective solution—and Ify and I, having managed short-stay apartments in Aberdeen for years, can tell you exactly why.

Spacious Comfort with Room to Breathe and Bond

Imagine this: after a day of exploring Aberdeen's hidden gems, you and your travel companions return to a spacious apartment. Unlike cramped hotel rooms, multi-bedroom apartments provide ample living space for everyone to unwind and recharge.

Whether catching up over a home-cooked meal in a fully equipped kitchen, planning the next day's adventures in the living room, or simply relaxing in separate bedrooms, these apartments offer the perfect balance of togetherness and privacy.

Budget-Friendly Perfect when Splitting the Cost

Multi-bedroom apartments are a fantastic option for budget-conscious groups. A single apartment can significantly reduce your overall accommodation cost compared to booking multiple hotel rooms.

This leaves more room in your travel budget for exploring Aberdeen's fantastic restaurants, lively pubs, and exciting activities. Plus, most apartments offer laundry facilities, so you can pack lighter and save on baggage fees.

Aberdeen Adventures Offer A Home Base for Exploration

When exploring a new city, location is key. Many multi-bedroom apartments in Aberdeen are in prime central locations, placing you within walking distance of the city's top attractions. Immerse yourselves in the city's maritime heritage at the Aberdeen Maritime Museum, marvel at the stunning architecture of the University of Aberdeen, or stroll along the picturesque beachfront.

Close to public transport allows for easy exploration of the surrounding areas, including charming fishing villages and dramatic clifftop scenery.

Experience Aberdeen Like a Local: Insider Tips from Us

Ify and I are passionate about Aberdeen and love sharing our local knowledge with our guests. As managers of Summit Apartments, we go beyond just providing a comfortable place to stay. We want you to have an unforgettable Aberdeen experience.

That's why we've compiled a list of our favourite insider tips to tantalize your taste buds, quench your thirst for history, and guide you towards unforgettable experiences:

Foodie Paradise

  • Harbourside Haven: Aberdeen Harbour isn't just a picturesque waterfront; it's a haven for fresh seafood lovers. Wander to one of the many fish and chip shops and savour some of the crispiest and fluffiest chips you'll ever encounter. For an authentic experience, grab a takeaway and enjoy it with a view of the bobbing boats.
  • Rosemount Revolution: Craving something beyond the traditional? The Rosemount area is a haven for trendy cafes and gastropubs. Indulge in delicious brunches, savour gourmet burgers at a local pub, or explore the international flavours of the area's many independent restaurants.

Hidden History

  • Tolbooth Tales: Step back in time at the Tolbooth Museum. Housed in a magnificent building that once served as a prison, the Tolbooth offers a fascinating glimpse into Aberdeen's rich history. Explore exhibits showcasing the city's maritime heritage, gruesome prison cells, and even a reconstruction of a traditional merchant's shop.
  • Dramatic Dunnottar: For a touch of fairytale charm, a visit to Dunnottar Castle is a must. Perched precariously on a cliff overlooking the North Sea, this dramatic fortress boasts a fascinating past. Climb the winding staircases, explore the remnants of the royal apartments, and imagine the castle's role in Scottish history.

Nightlife Know-How

  • Historic Pub Crawl: Immerse yourselves in Aberdeen's vibrant pub scene with a crawl along the historic Shiprow area. These traditional pubs, some dating back centuries, offer a warm atmosphere, friendly locals, and a great selection of local beers and whiskeys. Sample a dram (a measure) of Scotch whisky, a quintessential Scottish experience.
  • City Center Chic: If you're looking for something a little more modern, Aberdeen's city centre boasts a trendy collection of bars and clubs. Dance the night away to the latest tunes, sip on creative cocktails, and soak up the city's youthful energy.

Royal Deeside Escape

Beyond the city limits lies the captivating Royal Deeside, a scenic haven just a short drive away. Imagine rolling hills dotted with charming villages, majestic castles like Balmoral (the Queen's summer residence), and refreshing rivers perfect for a picnic.

Rent bikes to explore the picturesque countryside, indulge in a traditional afternoon tea at a quaint tea room, or relax and take in the breathtaking scenery.
