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...
