First class place to stay. So much nicer than a hotel room. I really appreciated the space that a suite gives and the standard of accomodation was very high. A real bonus having free parking just outside too.

Room Tip: Discuss needs with reception staff. Very helpful.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review after your recent stay at Skene House Whitehall. I was delighted to read that you enjoyed your time here so much.
As you say, having the extra space of a suite just makes things a bit more comfortable than in a hotel room. Our reception team are more than happy to discuss your needs to make sure we are allocating the most appropriate suite for you.
Thank you again and I look forward to your next stay.
Kind regards

We were visiting Aberdeen for four days to visit our son while at University. Whitehall suited our needs very well, it had a place to park the car, it was near enough to walk to city centre , the rooms were spotless and we had all we needed for our stay. Breakfast was good with the option to purchase cooked if we needed. Skene House building and back garden were well kept, staff were also pleasant and helpful always. We do hope to return to Whitehall when we next visit our son

Room Tip: We had a lovely quiet ground floor room with useful kitchenette

We stayed for a weekend at Whitehall, the suite we had was fantastic, spotlessly clean and with plenty of room which was brilliant. The continental breakfast was great, and free tea and coffee being available all day was very handy.

The staff couldn't do enough to help you, and we would definitely visit again.

Due to my husband having treatment in hospital I have used these apartments recently as a base in Aberdeen on three occasions. Each suite, both the studio and the suite with separate bedroom has been of an excellent standard. The staff are friendly and efficient, the receptionist at check-in being exceptionally helpful. Having sampled other apartments in Aberdeen I would recommend Skene House without hesitation.

Stayed for 1 night to go to a concert in the Music Hall. Very convenient for the city centre with parking. Quick efficient check-in, lovely staff. Complementary drink is a nice touch and you get a very good continental breakfast included (extra if you want cooked breakfast)

We had a studio apartment which was very clean and spacious, had everything that you need for a stay.

We only had one problem which was weather related. It was very windy overnight and being on the top floor we were disturbed most of the night due to something loose banging about, which we did report. Other than that, will certainly use them again

My wife and I stayed last Saturday for the weekend, when we booked in they upgraded us to a two bedroom flat. We found the flat was very comfortable, clean and spacious. We particularly liked the bay windows in the rooms. The Skene House is very central to the city centre. We must thank all the staff who were very helpful during our stay. When we go back to Aberdeen we will have no hesitation in staying at Skene House.
