First class service, accommodation and value for money. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for one night stay and were delighted with the quality of service and accommodation provided. Highly recommended for short stays !!

We stay only two nights in this luxury hotel. The offers large apartments with all the comfort you may need just in the city centre. The staff was absultely kind, professional and very very helpful. The private parking is a very important facility, since the hotel is right in the city centre. The breakfast is excellent with a wide selection... More

We stayed here recently for two nights over the weekend. We had an apartment on the top floor with its own kitchen and living room. The accommodation was clean and well maintained, albeit a little on the small side. It is very central; Union St in 7 minutes walking, the beach in 15-20 minutes. Secure parking is available but limited,... More

These apartments are lovely and the staff are so friendly and helpful. Having a bit more space than your normal hotel room is a bonus, highly recommend. Also very central with plenty choice of pubs and restaurants very close by.

I've been staying at the Skene House on Holburn for the past 12 days. I have a single suite with a nice sized kitchen, family room and bed room.

Staff welcoming on arrival and very helpful wish I had noticed the names for this review. Good sized apartment with everything you require. The only thing that stopped me giving 5 stars was that the décor was a bit dated and boring.

We loved staying in this hotel! It is very central and close to the main shopping centre and theatre. On arrival, the Polish receptionist could not have been more helpful with advice and directions.
