“Winter in Skene House Suites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2010

Had a weekend special here which was 60 pounds a night for 2 people in a one bedroom apartment with continental breakfast and free parking. Which is fantastic value much better than any hotel in the town. The apartments are lovely and large with very good fixture and fittings and a very fast FREE internet connection. The only complaint I have about the suite is in the bedroom the person above was very heavy on their feet and you could hear them stomping around the bathroom with their shoes on. This was a very minor complaint and should not put you off. A good nights sleep was had in a very dark room once you closed the curtains. Would come back again.

Thank you very much for leaving a wonderful review of your recent stay at Skene House Whitehall and for posting the photos of Skene House in the snow. Believe it or not the snow is still here!!
I was sorry to read that you were disturbed slightly by the person in the suite above you, but delighted to hear that this did not put you off recommending to others. We do endeavour to sound proof as much as possible but with old character buildings it is inevitable that there will be some noise.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Skene House.
Kind regards

Easily the best place we've stayed. Too many plus points and not one genuine gripe.
You have to try this place once and you'll never want to look elsewhere. Absolutely untouchable.

Just returned from a girls shopping weekend in Aberdeen staying at the Whitehall appartments and I can't recommend them highly enough. Standard of accommodation is excellent - both facilities and clealiness; breakfast service and variety excellent and the staff really did answer every query and attended to every request - including jump-starting our car for the return home.

One of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in and believe me we stay in lots, from the greeting on reception to upgrading us to an even nicer suite to the way which management handled a problem we encountered whilst staying there, nothing was too much trouble. We liked the honesty bar with a complimentary drink ,free refreshments in the lounge, and the suite we stayed in was beautiful with everything you could possibly need washing machine,dishwasher etc. A weekend was not long enough and hopefully we will return to Aberdeen and stay at this Skene houseagain next year.

My boyfriend booked this hotel for our night away for our anniversary as it was close to the playhouse where we were going to see a show. As soon as we arrived and pulled into the (free) car park with cctv we were both impressed. The only critesism that we had was the signs to reception from the car park were not too clear so we were not sure if we were heading in the right direction however that really was the only down side!
We then made our way to reception where we were greeted very kindly and efficiently by Gillian once checked in (which was very quick - fab!) we were then personally escorted to our suite and shown round (doesnt happen very often these days). The suite itself was absolutely lovely. Very very clean and it had everything that we needed. The breakfast was included and as was one free drink in the honesty bar. Bed was very comfy. The area was so quiet we had a great sleep. I left my phone in the room by mistake and again Gilian at reception was very kind and posted it back to me free of charge. I really was impressed with this hotel/ apartments. I have already recommended it to lots of my friends and I want to come back up to stay as soon as possible! A nice stay in a reasonably priced hotel with a very personal touch when needed. Thank you

Stayed just for one night but will definitely be returning. Wouldn't even consider a hotel or B&B now that we have discovered Skene House. Fabulous accommodation, spacious and equipped with everything you need. Service spot on, breakfast was excellent and even your first drink from the little 'honesty' bar is complimentary. Throw in free wi-fi too and it's really hard to fault!
