The staff was polite and friendly. We actually checked in early and out late, a nice convenience. The flat was nice enough, roomy but very dated. (your grandmothers house) The heat is on a timer, so it's quite cold if you don't ask to have the heat available when you want it on. (constantly needed) The tv is hanging below... More

The 3 night stay we had in the Skene was really first class. Right from the welcome we recieved at reception, and the young man that helped us with out heavy case out the car, and then up 3 flights of stairs. The whole weekend was 5 star from start to end. The 1 bedroom suite was very comfortable. The... More

These are not your normal hotel rooms but almost like a complete apartment. Our unit was on the very top level and it had sky lights, beautiful modern decore, a minifridge, mini-kitchenette, tea set, etc. The service here is second to none. You get a free continental breakfast with your room rate but can also order off menu. Free one... More

This is the second time we have stayed in one of the Skene House Suites, which are conveniently located within walking distance of shops and restaurants and with an on-site car park. We were shown to our room by a very helpful member of staff and found the one-bedroom suite to be clean and welcoming, with everything we needed. The... More

Very friendly staff, great location close to the high street and restaurants with good traditional breakfasts and a lovely communal sitting room with papers and coffee. Hard to fault except the wifi (free) was a bit patchy in my room. Also Aberdeen can get a bit willing on a Saturday night so if you are a light sleeper ask for... More

We were given an upgrade to a ground floor two bedroom suite. This is the best place I have ever stayed. If my own home were as tastefully decorated and as well maintained, I would be proud. Everything has been thought of, the service is good, and the value is exceptional. There is no restaurant, and it's a few blocks... More

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.
