The Globe Inn, Aberdeen: hitting the top note

You may well love The Globe Inn so much you don't want to leave. If that's the case, you don't have to. Above this welcoming, traditional bar are seven bedrooms - all with TV and en suite bathroom - which can be booked at a great rate. Downstairs, you can soak in the atmosphere created by the wood-panelled bar with its brass rail, the hexagonal stained glass on the ceiling - not to mention some of the classiest toilets in town. The staff book live bands - typically rock and jazz - up to a year in advance for Thursday to Sunday nights. The beer garden is an ideal place for a party for up to 40 people - ask for details.
