Go Native’s Aberdeen Serviced Apartments
Serviced Apartments in Aberdeen
Go Native inspect a number of the Serviced Apartments that form a part of our network every year. This allows us to monitor the quality of those apartments and source new properties in the local area. The process also gives us valuable on-the-ground knowledge of local transport and amenities to assess the suitability of apartments for both corporate and leisure visitors alike.
Our team recently spent some time in Aberdeen to meet with local apartment operators. Given Aberdeen’s proximity to the offshore North Sea rigs, it is often referred to as the Oil Capital of Europe. The Oil & Gas industry brings a number of business travelers to the area creating a consistent demand for serviced accommodation.
Serviced Apartments in Aberdeen are scattered across the city. Many are within walking distance of the main thoroughfare, Union Street; others can be found a little further from the centre, with apartments available in the vicinity of the University of Aberdeen as well as further into the west end, traditionally the more prosperous part of the city. Apartments vary in style and layout; the more central apartments are found in traditional Victorian buildings constructed from locally quarried granite while those further from the historic ‘Old Town’ are also found in modern developments. Facilities on offer vary considerably according to budget, with premium apartments offering a standard of furnishing and décor equivalent to a 4* hotel.
The city centre is fairly compact so local transport from the outskirts or indeed from Dyce airport 10km to the north of the city is generally straightforward and efficient, whether utilizing the local bus network or private cars/taxis. Commuter trains from the railway station on Guild Street serve nearby towns such as Stonehaven, with faster trains connecting to Glasgow, Edinburgh and London.
The past few years have seen an increasing number of serviced apartment operators build portfolios in the city and although the total stock in the area is relatively small compared to some UK cities such as Edinburgh and London, we anticipate that the number of serviced apartments on the market will rise further over the next 3-5 years.
