This was the last stop on our three day surprise anniversary trip to Scotland and it had to be the best. We stayed in a lovely place.in both Edinburgh and Loch Ness, so the pressure was on to wrap up our trip on a high and the Skene did just that. My wife was impressed when we were escorted to... More

We stayed in the Skene Apartments for 3 nights on our annual return to Aberdeen. The apartment was a large 2 bedroom on the 2nd floor with a huge living room and kitchen. From our arrival and throughout our stay we were treated with nothing but courtesy by very professional and friendly staff, from reception to check out we simply... More

The room we had was excellent value for money ideally located in the centre of Aberdeen. The hotel is a 10minute walk from union street in a lovely quiet residential area. The room we had included kitchen, bathroom, living room a double bedroom and single bedroom, unbelievable value. There is secure on site parking also. I would recommend this hotel... More

Booked a last minute stay here, we had a two room executive suite. Room was very clean, parking was very good as we were parked just a few meters from the entrance to our suite. We took our own travel cot although the hotel can provide these but we did request a high chair, unlike a lot of others the... More

We stayed at Skene House Whitehall on Saturday 19th July 2014 and we couldn't have had a better stay. The suites are brilliantly equiped, tea and coffee and our own little carton of 'proper' milk! We even had a complimentary drink in the hotel before we headed out and the breakfast was lovely! Would definitely stay here again.

I am delighted that you would chose to stay with us again and we look... More

Single and double bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom. Nice soap and shampoo in the small bathroom. Good to have a fridge and stove. Very welcoming front desk and lovely... More

I was delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you were pleased with the facilities in your suite. I am sure you will agree staying in a suite is much more comfortable than staying in a hotel room, you really have the best of both worlds. Space to relax with all the facilities of a... More

The hotel was extremely roomy and clean. The only problem was the parking lot was really hard to get to. It was convenient to restaurants and the main street in Aberdeen. The staff were very friendly and helpful which also made the stay in Aberdeen fun.

We only stayed two nights but wished we could have stayed more. We had a two bedroom suite with full kitchen, large bathroom, and separate living room. Hotel staff were incredibly nice. Breakfast was very good as well. No complaints!

well where do you start, absolutely excellent from arrival to leaving. Breakfast out of this world, facilities clean, spacious and central. I normally stay at city wharf apartments (which I cannot fault) but I will be using these in future. I stayed on a Wednesday night which is costly but isnt everywhere in Aberdeen mid week. An absolute gem of... More

It is delightful to read that you had an excellent stay with us and found our breakfast to be ‘Out of this World’.

Lovely homely and spacious two bedroomed apartment with separate lounge and closed off kitchenette, for the same price as a cramped hotel room! The kitchen was spotless and well equipped, and as there is a table in the living room we chose to eat in rather than try to find a restaurant on a Sunday night (there's a small Sainsbury's... More
