Please sum up in a couple of sentences what’s great about your Hilton Garden Inn.

It’s situated right in the heart of the city centre, close enough to walk to the local shops, bars, restaurants and the beach.

What’s the best item on the breakfast menu at your hotel?

The pork and herb sausages at Nick Nairn’s Native restaurant are really tasty - they come from local award-winning butcher John Davidson and are gluten-free.

What’s the one thing I should do while in Aberdeen, to make me feel like a local?

Head off to Belmont Street and Back Wynd where you can enjoy Aberdeen’s pub and café culture.

I’ve got some down time during a busy day – how should I spend it in Aberdeen?

There’s great shopping to be done at Union Square, some lovely parks nearby, a wonderful beach promenade with bars and cafés and Dunnottar castle, which is set high up on the cliffs on the North Sea coast.

Do you have a favourite spot to see the setting sun in the city?

Forget the sunset - the beach offers the most stunning and dramatic sunrise.


Tell us about a hidden gem of Aberdeen that isn’t normally on the tourist trail…

Torry, on the south bank of River Dee, is famous for its fishing community. If you’re lucky, it’s an excellent viewing spot to see dolphins at play.

Tell us your spot for an evening cocktail.

Our own hotel bar, Native, has the most amazing selection of cocktails including a Deadly Tiki set on fire!
