The accommodation was far more than we expected because of the excellent facilities of kitchen and sitting room area. The rooms were large, spacious and very clean.
It's central location is ideal for getting to shops and restaurants. It would have been perfect for a longer stay and we would definitely return.
The rates were excellent value for money.

Can't beat this place for a family trip. Three bedroom apartment with living area was a great alternative to hotels. And easy walkign distance to union street. Top that off with some play equipment for the kids in the yeard and it was a great stay.

This is the perfect combination of hotel accomodation and self catering rolled into one. The apartment was spacious, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. All the staff we encountered were professional but also had a welcoming friendly manner. The suites are well situated for exploring Aberdeen on foot whilst leaving the car in the secure car park. This was our second visit to Skene House Suites (and our first visit to Whitehall) and they will remain firmly at the top of our list when looking for accomodation in Aberdeen in the future!

Very clean and comfortable, and very affordable. Although only there for one night, with a full kitchen, this would make a great place for a much longer stay. The staff were wonderful. After telling the receptionist about a very unfortunate incident on our way to the hotel, a complimentary bottle of wine was delivered to our room. I can’t say enough nice things about this place!

Second time we have stayed at Skene hotel suites. It our first to Whitehall and it won't be our last. From moment you walk into reception you are made to feel special. To have a fully functional flat to chill out in is the icing on the cake. Don't waste time lookin else where because you be hard pushed to beat what you get for your money

The apartment was spotless and well equipped. The separate office was a great surprise. The staff were polite, cheerful and very helpful. On one of the hottest days in Aberdeen the secluded garden to sit out in was a real bonus. Breakfast was very good and the complimentary drink was a very nice touch. All in all, we were very impressed with everything, thought it was excellent value for money and would wholeheartedly recommend it. Already looking forward to staying there again.
