I spent 4 nights in Skene House Whitehall. I was surprised, because it was not just a normal hotel room, but a small apartment with two large beautiful bedrooms, living room, bathroom and kitchen. Everything with standard hotel services. Every morning an excellent breakfast, housekeeping and really kind and helpful receptionists. Free wifi in whole building. Excellent service!

We enjoyed our recent stay greatly. Our two-bedroom apartment was very nice and spacious. We were able to shop at the grocery and cook our own meals when we wanted. We had a washer/dryer which allowed us to pack less clothing for our trip. We were walking distance to restaurants if we wanted. Friendly staff, we will stay here again!

We stayed here for four nights while on a golfing trip to Scotland. Location is central to downtown and we were within walking distance to restaurants every night. We booked a suite with a washer and drier....the only downside was that the room was on the fourth floor (there is no elevator). The continental breakfast was more than adequate. Parking... More

My husband and I stayed here one night on our way to Edinburgh. We wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Only a few problems of cleanness in the kitchen and in the bathroom. Very good place where to stay, in an apartment at a lower price than a B&B. Not very central, since the railway station is at 30 minutes by feet

When booking Skene House Whitehall I simply thought it was a standard hotel. What a treat it was when we realized it was an apartment! Our teenage children were delighted to have their own rooms. The place was quaint and clean and the staff were marvellous. I would recommend this place to any family travellers.

We decided to stay here last week and intended using the apartment just as a somewhere central. But when we seen the size of the place we were really surprised the place was huge. Staff were great and the complimentary drink was a really nice touch. Have been recommending this place to colleagues and will definitely be back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Skene House Whitehall is the best of both worlds - it's a city centre location with a residential feel. Its only 7 minutes walk to the top end of Union Street, fewer than that to the West End boutiques of Rose and Thistle Street, yet benefits from a more relaxed atmosphere due to its private gardens and proximity to the neighbourhood of Rosemount where delicatessens, friendly pubs, cafes and Sainsbury's are within 5 minutes walk. Whitehall's 49, studio and 1-3 bedroom apartments offer business and leisure travelers a range of eclectic interiors providing a homely feel for short or long stays. ... more   less
