We had two nights here in a three bedroom apartment, with a large lounge and two bathrooms. There were stairs to reach it. We loved it. There is a lovely lounge room off the reception area, which we didn't have time to make full use of - we didn't have time for the welcome drink! The staff were helpful, and the breakfasts good (you could order - and pay for - other food if you wished). The location was good - not too far to walk to Union St. Note there is free Wi-fi in the rooms but it was quite slow and we found it better to use the computer in the lounge by reception. There is a parking area, but you are not guaranteed a spot. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: The three bedroom apartments were excellent (although the third bedroom was small - but there were t...

We have two free car parks, one small close to the front entrance of the main building and one larger one across the courtyard.

We look forward to seeing you again,

The decor and soft furnishings are beautiful, our two bedroom accommodation was spotlessly clean and very well equipped, the staff are really friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Complimentary drink available on arrival with complimentary tea and coffee available throughout the day-much appreciated. A tasty and plentiful continental breakfast is included in the price. Location is convenient for city centre visits. Pat & Ron

this was our second stay and it was just as good as the first. Cleanest place I have ever stayed in. There was even a pint of milk in the fridge. Staff friendly. Car parking a bonus. Close to the city centre, theatre, music hall etc. Breakfast is included and very good but if you are very hungry you can have a cooked breakfast for a charge.

Room Tip: If you have problems climbing stairs then make sure you request not to have upstairs apartment as t...

Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted that you and your friends enjoyed your stay at Skene House Whitehall.

Our hotel suites are ideal for groups of friends travelling together. With our hotel suites you have the flexibility of cooking and dining in, as well as having your own comfortable lounge area for getting together, watching a movie or having a few drinks from our honesty bar!

As you mentioned, we are close to the centre of town where there are great shops, bars and restaurants – or if you prefer escaping to the countryside, we are only a 30 minute drive from some of Scotland’s most beautiful castles and woodland estates.

Why not keep up-to-date with our news and latest offers on Facebook and Twitter.

We look forward to seeing you and your friends again very soon,

With kind regards,

Karen Barbour,
Manager

Great hotel. We stayed in a one bedroom suite which was bigger and better equipped than our first flat! The accommodation is in a series of tenement style buildings so you will probably have to walk outside (through a beautifully well maintained courtyard) to the breakfast room/ reception which would not be ideal on a rainy day but we were lucky with our weather. I expected to be slightly disappointed that a cooked breakfast was not included in the room rate but the choices on offer for the continental breakfast were great (fresh fruits of all kinds, breads and pastries of all kinds which the staff were happy to heat or toast as well as the usual cereal, cold meats and cheeses etc). The honour bar in the sitting room was also a great idea and the prices were very reasonable if you felt like staying after your first complimentary drink! There were also a selection of board games in there - great for kids and adults alike! Everything was spotlessly clean and the staff were always helpful and friendly. Altogether, I couldn't recommend this place highly enough!

We were upgraded to a full apartment which is great value. All the facilities which one can expect, really helpful service, very good location and parking, You cannot expect much more for a home from home and the price is very attractive.

Thanks for your review. We really appreciate the effort our guests make to help out other travellers.

We aim to make your stay as comfortable as possible, should you require any extra items in your room, please do not hesitate to ask our reception staff and they will do their best to accommodate you.

It’s true that Aberdeen can be cold; however, the weather can produce some spectacular scenes throughout the season. My favourite seasons to visit Aberdeen would be autumn and spring.

We hope that you will consider us again if you decide to revisit Aberdeen. You might like to follow our blog on our website (under the About Us section) or our Facebook and Twitter pages, where we regularly post our current offers along with news, events, and photography of Aberdeen throughout the seasons.

With Kind Regards,

Karen Barbour
