“Excellent Suite Accomodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

This was our first time staying at the Whitehall Suites, we usually stay at Rosemount.
Excellent value for money. We got a complimentary upgrade to a 2 bedroom suite as we had booked the studio apartment.
We phoned before checking in to see if we could park our car early and this was not a problem.
The suite was spotlessly clean. The staff and service was excellent.
Breakfast had a vast selection to choose from and a cooked breakfast was available at an additional cost.
Lovely garden area at the back of the apartments.
Would stay here again on our next visit to Aberdeen

The experience was great, we had everything we needed for a short break and more. Spotlessly clean, warm and cosy. Breakfast was splendid with a vast choice. The service is first class all the staff are polite and friendly from house keeping to management.The grounds are well maintained with outside seating areas.Josh gave us a tour of the hotel when we arrived,he was friendly and polite. We will be back.

Room Tip: The delux suite was well worth the extra few ponuds

Was recommended to use Skene apartments by a friend, and it turns out that I will always check to see if they have an apartment before even thinking of a hotel or motel in future. We had a two bedroom apartment, which was more than spacious enough for the four of us, and having your own lounge is so much better than having to sit on the bed and watch the telly. Rooms are clean and staff are excellent. Don't want to say much more, otherwise will be full the next time I try and book. All the best, and great job to Skene !

Having previously stayed in Skene House Rosemount (FAB) I was expecting the exactitudes experienced there. House keeping was fab, as usual;studio apartment was lovely,excellent use of the space.Only problem, it was 3 floors up and no lift-on the plus side-a free welcome drink and honesty bar!Wonderful! Nice exterior seating areas.Breakfast at Rosemount wins hands down!Love Skene ideaology!

Room Tip: Studio room great but 3 floors up and no lift

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We really appreciate your feedback, as you can imagine, it helps us to improve our service to you every time.

We get many comments about the lift, however unfortunately our traditional granite buildings do not support well to installing one. To get around this small defect, we have a strong and willing concierge team to do all the lifting and carrying for you! Moreover, if you book directly with our reservations team you can request a ground or first floor suite.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Skene House very soon,

I knew Skene house was rated no 1 in Aberdeen so I road tested it one weekend. I wasn't disappointed. I thought the service and professionalism was exceptional.

I opted for a studio apartment which while very good was really the same as a large hotel room. If I was staying for a week I'd upgrade. The studio had no desk to work at as a side point.

The continental breakfast was excellent and impressive. Fresh strawberries etc. the pastries were outstanding. No good for dieters! Cooked offerings were good too but it's the bread and pastries which did it for me.

I'd definitely recommend this place especially as a serviced apartment.

I am glad you enjoyed our Breakfast Buffet, which is plentiful, varied and freshly prepared, through the morning.

We had a two bedroom suite for a family of four. The rooms were spacious. The staff did a great job of showing us to our rooms. The breakfast was good. The honor system for the drinks was very nice (wow, what a huge room back there!). We actually had a quality internet connection (YEA!!!) The only reason I can't give it a "5" is because our living area and kitchen smelled of sour milk. If I were travelling to Aberdeen on business or for an extended period of time, I would absolutely make this a place to stay.

Thank you very much for posting a review of Skene House Whitehall after your recent stay with us. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that our staff looked after you in the way that Skene House is reputed for.

I was very sorry to read about the smell in the living area and kitchen. This obviously should not have happened and I can only apologise. I will certainly discuss this with our housekeeping department.

I hope we have the opportunity of welcoming you back soon.

Skene House is a very welcoming alternative to an "ordinary" hotel.
The suites are furnished with style and good taste, have all modern comfort.
Very clean and well equiped.
Breakfast is something you do not have to worry about if you do not want to.
Excellent and friendly service.

Room Tip: No elevator.

Thank you for taking the time to review Skene House Whitehall, following your recent stay. Serviced Accommodation is a much better option than Hotel Accommodation, you really have the best of both worlds. Space to relax with all the facilities of a hotel.
