Charming suite with lots of character and bespoke finish Complementary alcoholic drink at reception is good although would have preferred a bottle of Spring water in the room Continental beakfast was of good quality with cooked available at extra charge. Consideration should be given to including a cooked breakfast with the room rate

The hotel (more services apartments really) is well positioned at one end of Union Street. The apartments are fairly basic but very spacious and equipped with everything you are likely to need. Mine was on the top floor (no lift/elevator) but once there consisted of a decent sized bedroom, small sitting room, bathroom and kitchen. Plenty of shops around (Tesco... More

This must be the best place to stay in Aberdeen for a long weekend. We visited the city for a break Thursday to Sunday to visit our son and wanted some space and a hanger from the normal formula hotel. The two bed artment was well appointed and wonderfully clean. The staff were very professional and attentive. Great communication and... More

This accommodation is ideal. Perfect location for all Aberdeen's amenities and a car park too. Lovely cold breakfast. Accommodation is great and gives the freedom to cook yourself or bring in food. Friendly staff. Will be returning soon cannot give enough food praise. Complimentary drink on arrival.

We stayed in Skene House Holburn for 2 nights in November, 2015. We were a group of 4 adults and an infant. The apartment was beautifully furnished and quite spacious. We appreciated the full kitchen, which we used only for takeout and snacks but it would have been possible to cook full meals there. The apartment was well equipped and... More

This must be among the best hotels I've ever visited. Officially four star, it seemed to me more like five star at two or three star prices. Couldn't believe what an amazing place I'd found. It started life as tenement flats, later became student flats, and now is a collection of beautifully decorated and maintained suites which are basically individual... More
