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...

This is a great apartment hotel right downtown in aberdeen. Just off the main street. Union Street, this hotel is centrally located and surrounded by attractions and restaurants. The apartment rooms are small but cosy - separate kitchen, bathroom, lounge room and TWO bedrooms. All with repro. furniture so it has an old charm about it. Breakfast is included and... More

Stayed here for about 5-6 weeks for work; good walking location right on Union. Rooms were nice, clean... for some reason mine was extraordinarly hot, especially in the kitchen area and I had to keep all of the doors open in order to cool it down to an acceptable level. Other than that, very nice.
