This hotel provides very well equipped suites in a quiet part of Aberdeen within easy walking distance of Union Street. The room I had was very comfortable, very clean and very well appointed. The staff were excellent. When they discovered I would be leaving the next day before breakfast they, without being asked, dropped some cereal, bread for toast, jam and marmalade, and fresh fruit by my suite. Very much appreciated.

My wife and I stayed at the Skene House Whitehall for 2 weeks and the service was outstanding. All the employees make you feel like you are royalty. The rooms were nice and comfortable. We will stay here whenever we come back to Aberdeen. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: stay in the main building.

This was my second visit and the quality and cleanliness of the accommodation, efficiency and friendliness of the staff, and excellent value proved to have been maintained at the same very high standard as on my previous visit. The suites are close to the centre of Aberdeen (just off Union Street) with plenty of restaurants around and a short walk from the bus and railway stations, yet located in a pleasant, relatively quiet residential area, and are equipped with everything to provide a real home from home. Very highly recommended.

What can you say about a hotel that gets it right from the word go to the moment you leave...perfect....great suite, exceptional service and a fantastic breakfast....

The lounge area was great, we took visitors back after the theater and it was the perfect space to sit and relax. The hotel bear was a great hit with the kids who loved filling in the postcards from his travels.

Top marks all round...will be back!

As a regular visitor to Aberdeen I normally stay in hotels. This was the first time I've stayed in a serviced apartment. It was a much nicer experience and felt much more like home than a hotel could. The apartment was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Some furnishings were a bit basic but nothing to really complain about.

The one thing I would change would be the TV, it was far too small for the size of the room.

Nice breakfast and friendly staff. I'd certainly recommend and will stay again but only at a discounted rate - the standard rate is rather expensive

Good location for Aberdeen city centre
