Northern Hotel

Art Deco landmark hits the market for £1.5m

Built in 1938, the Aberdeen Northern Hotel sits in an imposing corner location on the northern side of Aberdeen, where its distinctive V-plan layout and bold curved angles form a striking landmark.

The 32-bedroom hotel remains a thriving business and is considered an outstanding example of the Art Deco style of architecture. It enjoys Historic Scotland's Category A listed building status.

Alistair Letham, a director in the UK hotels agency team at Colliers International, commented: “Not only is the Aberdeen Northern Hotel a unique architectural gem, it continues to trade well, drawing custom from locals, visitors and local businesses alike.

"It is being sold at a time of great opportunity for buyers: After the downturn in the oil and gas industry, the future of Aberdeen is set to be diversified, with strategic plans for £4.8bn of inward investment. The hotel industry will likely be a key beneficiary of this and now is, therefore, the time to be buying in Aberdeen.”

As well as 32 bedrooms, sleeping 61, the hotel boasts restaurants, bars, dining and conference facilities, which make use of the unusual rounded Art Deco lines of the building. Its Mackenzie room and Ballroom combine to form a cinema-style curving function suite, capable of accommodating 200 people.

Selling agent Colliers International is inviting offers around £1,500,000 for the Aberdeen Northern Hotel, 1 Great Northern Road, Aberdeen AB24 3PS.
