THE first of two Hampton by Hilton hotels in north east Scotland has opened its doors.
The 155-bedroom Hampton by Hilton Aberdeen Airport hotel at Dyce is a purpose-built ‘modular’ building constructed for owners Bricks Capital, which develops and owns branded hotels and the True Student Living brand, which has two developments in Glasgow.
The hotel, which is being operated by management company Interstate Europe Hotels & Resorts, offers high-speed wi-fi, a lounge area and a 24-hour fitness suite.
A second Hampton by Hilton hotel with 173 bedrooms is due to open in Westhill, Aberdeenshire, later this spring.
The two hotels represent the debut of the Hampton by Hilton brand, which comprises more than 2000 hotels in 17 countries, in the north east of Scotland.
Commenting on the opening of Hampton by Hilton Aberdeen Airport, general manager Sandra Brooks said: “In terms of the local market, this fresh, contemporary hotel represents a new dimension to the Hilton family which will be very well known to many people.
“It is a significant step forward for the company to open in a key Scottish market such as the north east where green shoots of recovery make this a great place to be. We very much look forward to the opportunities and challenges which lie ahead as we build our reputation in the area.”
Nicholas Northam, Interstate’s managing director for the UK, said: “We’re thrilled to be opening these two new Hampton by Hilton hotels in the Aberdeenshire region, demonstrating our commitment to supporting the growth and development of the area’s corporate and leisure markets.”
