Second time I have stayed there its near enough to walk to the town but far enough away to feel you have a bit of space. The studios are fantastic and well worth it, the staff are friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back, a wee home from home

Room Tip: Get a room off the main road up at the back

This was our third year in a row staying at the Skene House apartments and our second year at Skene House Whitehall. The location is great for us because we have family close by. The apartments suit us perfectly. They are very well appointed, including the kitchen, and very comfortable. The breakfast is delicious, and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. We'll be back.

Hotels are busy and quite expensive in Aberdeen. Here's a great concept which works really well. Free parking, helpful staff, two good sized bedrooms and a generous sitting room. Plus a fully equipped kitchen.
There's a welcome drink on arrival and the staff will help sort out a good choice for dinner.
Very good continental breakfast and free coffee and biscuits all day.

I'm not what you consider a member of the Jet Set but I have travelled a lot of the world in my 37 years of working. This accommodation is by far the best I have stayed at, not only in relation to cost (especially for Aberdeen) but also for location, cleanliness and especially service. All great attributes to see these days. I was reluctant to tell colleagues for fear that it may reduce my chance of availability in the future but felt they deserve to benefit too. It will always be my first 'Port of Call' when returning.

We always stay here when visiting Aberdeen and have always been more than satisfied with the service and accommodation. However this time the staff surpassed themselves. My husband was having a procedure done in Aberdeen Infirmary and unfortunately had to stay in longer than was anticipated. A lovely apartment was found for me at very short notice despite the hotel being very busy (New Years Eve) and even chocolates left in the apartment which was a really lovely touch. Special mention for Lindsay who couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. However I was very well taken care of by all the staff on duty which made a very unpleasant situation a little more bearable.

Stayed here from 27th Dec - 30th Dec 2013. On arrival greeted by Lindsay who was very pleasant and helpful in recommending some restaurants for us. Stayed in block 8 flat 31 top floor 6 flights up (phew)! apt very neat and compact but has everything you need. Lovely and warm with nice views. Only a 5min walk down to Union St the main part of town. Our weather was very good we even managed to get to the beach for a walk. Enjoyed Aberdeen very much and would gladly go back and would be very happy to stay at Skene House again.
