Very good apartment/hotel. A lot more space than I needed. Clean rooms, friendly staff and a decent breakfast. Location was good and there was adequate car parking. Only thing missing was a "snack" in the fridge. Apart from that a pleasant change from chain hotels.

Thank you for your review of Skene House Whitehall. Indeed, we are the antithesis of large chain hotels, we aim to offer a suite for the same price as a hotel room in order to give our guests much more flexibility during their stay. With regards to your suggestion for a snack in the fridge, we’ll see what we can do about that! In the meantime we offer tea, coffee and biscuits in the communal lounge area beside reception along with an honour bar with a supply of bar snacks if you fancy.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Skene House Whitehall,

With kind regards,
Karen Barbour

After six years visiting the skene house white hall it feels like a second home. Rooms are comfortable and provided with everything you need for a pleasant stay in Aberdeen. I can recommend this place to stay.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Skene Whitehall for the second time and we enjoyed our short one night stay. We ended up in a two bedroom apartment with lounge and kitchen which was lovely. We love the Scottish Fine Soaps provided and the deluxe continental breakfast with a great selection of breads and pastries, including local produce. Ramunas, a very nice young gentleman who showed us to our room and looked after us at breakfast was courteous and friendly. It is a convenient location, close to the town centre with parking. We will definitely be back.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted that you chose to return to Skene House Whitehall.

We are glad to hear that you appreciated our fine soaps and our breakfast buffet. We try to support local business by choosing Scottish produce where possible, for example our breads come from a local social enterprise called The Breadmaker and our comfortable mattresses from another local social enterprise called Glencraft.

Ramunas is delighted that he got a special mention in your review and looks forward to welcoming you back again soon!

I stayed here with 4 of my old school chums at the beginning of October, all of my friends were so impressed with the accommodation. We had an amazing 3 bedroom suite on the top floor. The decor was so pretty and old fashioned, just my cup of tea. Bedrooms were huge, Living Room was fantastic too.

We had continental breakfast and it was just perfect, the breakfast room is very tastefully decorated too.

Overall, another wonderful stay at Skene House Apartments, I would definatly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: 3 bedroom suite, top floor amazing...
