Aberdeen hotels are close to capacity for this year’s All-Energy, adding to an already buoyant market, hoteliers in the city say.
Stephen Gow, chairman of Aberdeen City and Shire Hotels Association and general manager of Thistle Aberdeen Altens, said it had now become normal for the city to be booked out for All-Energy, a mark of the event’s success.
But he added: “The city is already busy anyway.”
He said the past six to eight months and more had consistently seen hotel rooms in demand on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
“It is still a little quieter at weekends, but there is no doubt the city is good Tuesdays and Wednesdays,” he said. “There is confidence in the energy sector at the moment with lots of new projects driving forward.”
According to hotel booking website Laterooms yesterday, the nearest available hotel for next Tuesday and Wednesday nights were in Peterhead and Banchory.
