Directions to the Hotel

A taxi can whisk you to Aberdeen International Airport (ABZ) in 15 minutes. Drivers can park for free in the large on-site car park. Frequent buses run from just outside the hotel into Aberdeen city centre, only 3 miles away. Here you will find more than 50 stores in gleaming Union Square shopping centre, which also has a 10-screen cinema. Aberdeen's restaurants, theatres and museums are all located in the city centre. The Aberdeen Sports Village is just an eight-minute drive from the hotel.


Both chair cars and sleepers are available on the journey from Euston Station, London, to Aberdeen.  The night sleeper, The Caledonian, leaves London’s Euston Station at 9:15 PM. The Caledonian Sleeper arrives in Aberdeen at approximately 7:00 AM. The average non-sleeper journey time between London and Aberdeen is 7 hours 10 minutes. The fastest journey time is 7 hours 7 minutes. On an average weekday, there are 36 trains per day travelling from London to Aberdeen. The journey time may be longer on weekends and holidays.
