An apartment hotel in a reasonable location (7 minute walk from union street ). Excellent breakfast with vegetarian optin in the menu.
In the looby there is a tea and Coffee spot with complimentary biscuits and cookies.
We had an apartment for 4 person and we got an apartment with two floors. On the down side- it had only one toilet on the second floor, not so good if your bedroom is in the first floor. ..

Having spent the last five months staying here on business, I have to say its really home from home, the staff are so friendly and can't do enough for you, wouldn't think about staying anywhere else, these apartments are absolutely spotless, like everything about the place, Lindsay and Scott who work on reception, go above and beyond every time , can,t speak highly enough about them and the place and if your lucky to stay here you will understand
Keep up the great work Skene Whitehall you really deserve no1 hotel in Aberdeen

Had a family break in Aberdeen over Easter with two teenage boys. Needed more room that just a bedroom and while researching apartments came across Skene House Whitehall. Very reasonable for a 2 bed apartment that had a separate kitchen, living room and bathroom. Lots of chill out space after days visiting relatives and sightseeing. Apartment was spotless and cleaned daily whilst we were at breakfast. Came fully equipped with everything from a washing machine to washing up liquid - made life very easy for us all. Breakfast was superb and lots to choose from. Comfortable lounge area with board game and an honour bar. Free parking and wifi - you can't go wrong - even a small courtyard garden. 10/15 min leisurely walk to Union Street. Would definitely recommend it and will be back.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor following your recent stay at Skene House Whitehall. I am sure you will agree a staying in a suite is much more comfortable than staying in a hotel room, especially for families.

We were delighted to read that you enjoyed relaxing in our spacious lounge. We are continually making improvements and we have recently installed a large TV and provided board games, which have both been very popular.

We are indeed very fortunate to enjoy a quiet location with ample free parking and gardens, in the heart of the city centre.

It’s lovely to read that you will return to stay with us again, in the future, please check our website for the very latest special offers.

My husband and I have stayed at several apartments in Aberdeen as we visit Aberdeen regularly as our children live there. Skene House has been best so far both for accommodation and value for money. The staff were excellent and couldn't do enough to help. The residents lounge was great to be able to read the paper in comfort and enjoy the complimentary coffee/tea and goodies. The deluxe continental breakfast was excellent and more than enough to set you up for the day.
We will be back.

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
