Over the last few years I have stayed at each of the three Skene House establishments in Aberdeen. Mostly at Rosemount, but also at the others. This time I am back at Whitehall. The set-up is much the same - there is a reception area on the street and the apartments are within adjacent/nearby traditional Aberdeen tenement buildings. At Whitehall... More

Expected a lot after reading the reviews of this set of suites and we were not disappointed in any way. Looks recently refurbished or exceptionally well looked after and provides a much better option than a hotel room. Staff were helpful and polite. Can't ever see myself staying anywhere else in Aberdeen.

Stopped only for one night in Aberdeen but I'd definitely recommend for a long stay. The studio flat was brilliant, the staff very patient storing my bicycle and generally very friendly. In sum, very good value for the money spent!
