Recharge in the grandeur Aberdeen Hilton TECA Hotel

By  |  0 Comments

IF you’re looking for a hotel that connects you to events in the north of Scotland, then look no further than the modern and glitzy Hilton TECA hotel.

Situated as part of the Event Complex Aberdeen, with Aberdeen Airport less than two miles away, this stylish hotel is also within easy reach of the nearby Beach promenade and the city centre, making it perfect for seaside strolls to get you in the mood for your travels.

Its location can allow you to enjoy the many lovely parks and gardens which have earned Aberdeen the nickname “The Flower of Scotland” as well as two miles of sandy beaches and superb golf courses. The city centre is also a haven for shopping with boutique and independent shops and cafes lining the charming and bustling streets.

Immaculate with just the right amount of luxury, the 200-room Hilton TECA also comes with stunning spa facilities and an executive bar lounge with complimentary drinks and nibbles to welcome you upon arrival.

One of the best hotels in Aberdeen, it offers four different types of rooms – from standard to executive – which are all ample sized and designed in contemporary fashion like the rest of the building.



It’s also the only hotel in the city to offer a presidential suite for the big spenders, a luxurious apartment style room with a private terrace, studio kitchen and separate living room.

In addition, there’s a large on-site grill restaurant, along with a separate coffee and whisky bar, and a variety of conference rooms.

Upon arrival, we couldn’t believe just how huge the entire hotel actually is – with sky-high ceilings and luxurious velvet seating areas dotted around all parts of the hotel.

The reception staff were truly welcoming, explaining in great detail how we could access the restaurant and spa, and made us feel like nothing would be too much trouble to ask. The first-class customer service was impressive right off the bat.

After a pleasant check in, my boyfriend and I enjoyed some wine and snacks from the executive lounge, which also had exceptional service, and reminded us of some of the first-class airport lounges you visit before jetting off somewhere abroad.

We then headed to our King Executive Room, which came with a plush king-size bed, modern marble carpet and sophisticated furnishings, and was so fresh that it felt like we were the first visitors to ever stay there.




Amenities include a 49 inch plasma TV, minibar, desk, vast wardrobe storage and a sleek shower with incredible lighting if you’re looking to take a top notch selfie before your night out. The only thing that seemed to be lacking was the amount of toiletries we were given – so if staying there, we’d advise bringing some in advance.

We were also provided with a cosy towelled bathroom and slippers – which always makes you feel welcomed – and indulged in some Scottish whisky-flavoured chocolate before getting dressed up for dinner in the hotel’s Quarter House Grill restaurant.

Before dinner, I had the chance to take in the hotel’s stunning décor and fabulous Japandi style drop-down lighting, with green-coloured marble walls and cavernous ceilings bringing in beautiful light from the outside in.



I can only describe the entire place as feeling exceptionally pristine and shiny – almost futuristically so – but with a warmth that came from the vertiginous plants and green-coloured marble that provided a hint of nature to make the place feel homely.

The restaurant décor was equally as impressive – with chic and elegant furnishings in a contemporary design, layered with beautiful lighting, glistening gold accessories, hints of Art Deco and a relaxed atmosphere.

The booth seating felt cosy and intimate, and our waiter immediately came to serve us with some drinks before we decided what to order. I opted for a classic Raspberry Bellini from the generous cocktail menu, and my boyfriend had a pint of beer, which was perfect for kick-starting our evening.



With eight menu courses to choose from, I opted for a soup starter and a delicious steak main, and my boyfriend had soup and a hugely stacked burger.

The juicy Aberdeen Angus steak was exceptional – perfectly cooked with soft as butter – and a side of handcut chips with peppercorn sauce.

My boyfriend said his burger was bursting with flavour and we both agreed that the service was friendly, efficient and helpful.



Topped off perfectly with a delectable bottle of red wine, the restaurant was a great place to unwind and had a nice, speakeasy feel which was relaxing with a convivial atmosphere.

Despite being stuffed to the brim, we also enjoyed a delectable panna cotta dessert and even a cheeseboard – packed with sourdough crackers,chutney and all kinds of cheeses –  before retreating to the whisky bar for a selection of Scottish drams that provided the perfect night cap.

Although we decided against exploring the Aberdeen nightlife, which was about a 15-minute drive outside the hotel, the restaurant would have been the perfect pre-gig or theatre show treat if we wanted to enjoy the nearby events venues.



Instead, we retreated to the comfy and clean beds, which were hard to drag ourselves from in the morning, before we headed for breakfast which offered a continental and traditional Scottish breakfast buffet.

I opted for a fry up – perfect for soaking up the previous night’s alcohol – and a number of coffees before we decided to explore the hotel’s gleaming Devon spa.

The spa, which had a sparkling sea-green pool, relaxing steam room, sauna, heated indoor pool, and whirlpool was simply divine and was the perfect place to recharge.



Its leisure facilities were nothing short of impressive, with a sizeable gym and luxurious setting, perfect for those who want burn off some of the hearty breakfast from the hotel buffet.

There’s also a blissful relaxation room with heated and hydraulic beds, which make for a comfortable chill spot for those looking to try out some of the spa’s raved about beauty treatments.

It offers a menu of divine face and body treatments which use locally sourced Scottish products designed to soothe the body and mind.

The stay left us feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, and the hotel would be the perfect place for anyone requiring accommodation ahead of a flight or gig night.



I loved the grandeur of the entire hotel, and the customer service was distinctively helpful and memorable, with the beautiful spa being the icing on the cake when it comes to modern luxury.

And with the Hilton being one of the most iconic hotel brands in the world, it proved its reputation for excellence and world-class customer service.

Considering the array of facilities on offer, the prices are great, with a standard room costing around £141, including Bed & Breakfast.



You can also upgrade to an Executive room for an additional £50 per night. An Executive room has additional amenities such as robe and slippers and a coffee machine, as well as access to the Executive Lounge – which is well worth is considering you can enjoy complimentary drinks and snacks prior to your event.

So, if you’re on the lookout for one of the best luxury hotels in Aberdeen, and one that promises a relaxing stay with convenient links to the airport, then the Hilton TECA is definitely for you.
