We stayed here for a few nights while we explored the highlands - distilleries and castles, and our stay was excellent. Our executive studio was immaculate, modern and airy. The suite came equipped with a kitchenette (which we didn't use but was a nice touch!) Breakfast was decent, with a la carte options available as well. The honour bar and... More

Wish we could have stayed more than one night but will definitely be back in the future. Excellent value and a real home from home - so nice to have comfy sofas to relax on and great to be able to eat in when you are really tired! Breakfast was excellent and gluten free toast or bagels also available.

Free coffee in the lounge was a great touch after returning from a day out exploring. The honesty bar was also a great. The staff were excellent. Got booked in quickly by... More

We booked Skene House thinking that it would be great value for money with it being suite style accommodation for £72/night. Whilst the location was good (about 10 mins walk to Union St) we couldn't believe how dated the suite was! We were allocated a 3 bedroom suite which had a bathroom and a shower room plus a small kitchenette... More

Have stayed here several times now and would definitely recommend. Staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is more than ample and pleasant. Will definitely stay again. We asked if we could view a room at another of the skene house locations and this was accommodated without question.

We booked a late deal here through a discount website on the basis that this was number one in Aberdeen on here. Being honest, even at a discounted deal, it was poor value for money for us for the room which we were allocated. The purpose of the trip was to spend a few days at a luxury hotel, we... More

I and a friend stayed in one of the studio apartments for two nights on our 11 day trip, and this place was definitely one of the highlights. The guys at reception (Luke and Edwin) were great and the service awesome all the way through. Very clean, spacious and modern room and bathroom, with cooking possibilities neatly hidden away. The...
