Rocking the ‘granite city’ to its core, Malmaison has unleashed huge beds, power showers and chic décor on Aberdeen. Among its 80 well-appointed bedrooms and suites, there’s a trio of function rooms. The Hauf is warm, cosy and modelled on a boudoir. The Chef’s Table offers a window onto the world of a working kitchen. Like the Hauf, it also has the Wi-Fi, conference-call facility and flatscreen TV to deliver as a business-first space. The Rubislaw Suite is a boardroom for 24 that can also host up to 50 for drinks receptions. Once work is concluded, you might also consider whisky tasting in the snug, a trip to the wine cellar or a detox in the spa.
