This 80 bed, £9million redesigned uber chic hotel sits on the site of the old Queens Hotel in Aberdeen. The site originally comprised of 3 ‘C’ listed granite villas fronting Queens Road in the centre of a conservation area.
A modern and sympathetic extension was added to the rear. The site constraints helped shape the form and character of this extension, with both its scale and mass completely concealed behind the front facade of the original 3 villas. The extension is formed in granite cladding allowing the contemporary design to sit comfortably in the predominantly granite conservation area.
Internally the stylish interior boasts 80 bedrooms including luxury suites with external terraces, a warm and traditionally styled bar, an elegant whisky room and granite paved reception area. There is also a large scale, triple height brasserie overlooking a landscaped terrace, private dining rooms with access to an external terrace, a walk-through glazed wine store with glass floor overlooking the wine tasting cellar below, a gym, spa and various treatment rooms.
