We stayed in the Skene Apartments for 3 nights on our annual return to Aberdeen. The apartment was a large 2 bedroom on the 2nd floor with a huge living room and kitchen.
From our arrival and throughout our stay we were treated with nothing but courtesy by very professional and friendly staff, from reception to check out we simply couldn't fault the level of service we received.
Located 5 mins from Union Street, the main street in Aberdeen, the apartments were ideally situated for shopping and access to restaurants and bars, neither of which are in short supply.
The only reason for a 4 star review was a persistent smell of dirty drains that we highlighted to reception shortly after our arrival. Staff did arrive and sprayed air freshener throughout, though this merely masked the smell briefly. No attempt was made to find the source of the smell or address it.
Otherwise a great visit and superb alternative to the hugely expensive hotel market in Aberdeen.
