The Spires Collection
BOOK UK SERVICED APARTMENTS ON LINE AT BEST AVAILABLE RATES - NO AGENCY OR COMMISSION FEES!
Our philosophy is simple, our best available rates are always available on line from the Spires website. As our rates improve the longer the stay, it would be impossible to show all permutations in a web tariff. On our check availability system on each page, select your venue and dates, and check best rate and availability for the type of apartment you prefer. Should the apartment of your choice not be available on line, do double check with us (call 0845 270 0090) as we do not always make our whole room stock available on line.
From time to time, we have special offers and deals, exclusive to the website – do check our special offers section regularly.

Pet Policy - Aberdeen Only
The Spires Aberdeen is committed to providing guests and bookers with as many booking options as possible. We appreciate that the ability to accept pets is a great selling point in today’s market where it can be extremely difficult to source pet friendly accommodation.
In our efforts to ensure our apartments are maintained to the highest of standards we are introducing a surcharge of £100.00 to all reservations where, it is agreed in advance with The Spires Management, a pet will be accommodated.
This charge will be used to cover the deep cleaning of the following areas within the apartment on departure:
- Carpet cleaning of lounge, hall and bedrooms.
- Dry cleaning of curtains.
- Extra housekeeping involved in making apartments ready for occupancy by the next guest.
In addition to the surcharge the guest will be required to complete a pet disclaimer form. In doing so the guest is agreeing to be liable for the cost of any damages caused by the pet during the stay. If there is an instance where a guest refuses to sign the disclaimer The Spires will reserve the right to cancel the booking with immediate effect.
All guests who have a pet with them must still have prior agreement of The Spires Management and will be required to agree to the terms of The Spires pet policy which can be provided at the time of booking.
If you have any questions regarding the change to the policy please do not hesitate to contact us.
