Booked only a week before. A fine location and a lovely suite. Breakfast was continental but beautifully fresh with a good choice. Staff could not have. Been more helpful. Parking good and only a short walk to Union Street .

Our stay started off perfect by letting us check in early after our long flight. The staff is friendly and helpful. Since it was my husbands birthday I asked for recommendations on a steak house for dinner. They suggested the Stage Door and made our reservations. After the day of exploring the city we came back to our room and... More

Stayed at this place for a couple of nights on a family vacation in August (on two separate occasions). Loved having all the space an apartment provides with two bedrooms and a nice living room. Also had a kitchen, which looked well-equipped, although we didn't use it on either stay. Both the apartments were very nice and clean and we... More

This was our first time in this type of accommodation and was so much better than a hotel room! Rooms spotless. All staff we came in contact with were courteous and friendly. Continental breakfast was more than adequate with selection of cereal, fresh fruit, various fruit juice, yoghurt, fresh pastries, toast, cold meats, cheese. We were on the 3rd floor... More

Stayed at Skene house Holburn for one night on Saturday 27 September. We have stayed once before and actually got the apartment under the one we had last time. It is so much better than a hotel room as you have so much more space. When we arrived we helped ourselves to coffee in the reception and then we had... More

Just back from a 1 night stay in 3rd floor 2 bed apartment. Great service from reception, concierge & dining room. Really central Aberdeen location, free parking at the rear of property.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for four nights with our 8 month old daughter. The staff on arrival were very friendly and helpful, and continued to be throughout our stay.
