The Skene house in Whitehall is just a 5 minute walk to Union Street (Aberdeen's main street). There is a small parking lot on site but unfortunately it fills early (it's ok to leave the car at night on the curb). The staff was extremely nice and helpful. We had one of the small apartments (1 bedroom plus living area),... More

After traveling for week we needed to spread out and wash laundry! We loved the living room and fresh white linens on bed. The showers were energy savers and not so easy or comfortable. However that was the only frustrating item. We enjoyed the kitchen, living room, lounge area and breakfast. Although there are $$ passes to a workout center,... More

Such a nice place and we had a great stay. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, concierge took us to our apartment, and we were amazed at the size of it.

The hotel is a great choice. Very friendly staff, great breakfast and really huge rooms/ apartments. The apartments are clean, and the service cleaned up daily and changed the towels etc. (+++) Non-smoking environment!!! I had a room on the top level under the roof and the apartments are great.

We booked this hotel based on trip advisor reviews, and were right to do so. We booked a suite which included a double room/bathroom, plus lounge and kitchen for the same price as we could get standard hotel rooms in other places in the city - we were only there 2 nights but it was great to have a bit...

After several weeks on the road this was a great place for a few days - our one bedroom spacious apartment came with washer/ dryer, microwave and cooker.
