Staying at skene house is an Outstanding experience you couldn't find it somewhere else. Owner is very kind and friendly. Staff are very lovely and helpful. Food is very delicious. Hotel is very close to union street, the prime area of Aberdeen city.

Hotel is in a great location-Rooms are large, breakfast is very good and staff is very helpful! It looks very plain and sterile from the outside but is nice inside. The suites offer so much convenience!! We came here after The Open to golf in the northern region and really enjoyed this hotel and the city of Aberdeen.

Recommended by a friend. Instead of a typical hotel room this was a proper flat with bedroom, sitting room, and even a kitchen! Clean, fast internet, great location in the city centre but quiet as the room faced away from the main road. Safe parking as well.

The apartment was clean and well decorated and furnished, the staff were friendly and the complimentary drink from the wee drink room was ace. All good impressions until it came to breakfast. There was no milk put out and it took ages to get served for anything other than continental. I ordered boiled eggs with soldiers, when they came the... More

Superb accommodation located just a stone's throw from the main shops, bar, restaurants etc. Friendly welcome on arrival. Suite was immaculately clean. Fab spacious suite with everything you could want including a spacious kitchen. Extremely comfortable bed. Would definitely book again when in the area.

Stayed for over 2 weeks and would stay again! Daily room service with a smile, knowledgeable and friendly staff all around! The hotel is self catering & with its separate kitchen made for easy meals. The bedroom had plenty of storage as did the living room.The area was off Union St. but still very quiet.

These apartments were fantastic in every way and I wouldn't even bother looking elsewhere if coming back to Aberdeen. The location is perfect, only a few minutes walk from Union Street and lots of bars/restaurants/shops. We were in block 12 which was on the side street and there was no noise, the rooms were spotless and spacious, and it was... More

Myself and my husband spent a weekend in Skene House Holburn in a 1 bedroom apartment, it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable breakfast was a buffet style but extremely lovely. We have stayed here on numerous occasions and would highly recommend it to anyone. The staff are all very friendly and accomodating.

Have stayed several times whilst on business in Aberdeen. The staff are efficient, friendly and offer great customer service. The apartments are lovely and clean with fully fitted kitchen so when staying a few nights it's much more convenient to shop at a local supermarket and pick up some groceries for a nice evening meal then relax in the lounge...
