“Great value one-nighter”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

My girlfriend booked us in for one night, very last minute, and managed to get a room in Skene Rosemount for just £66. We were scheduled to get a "Superior" suite but were told on arrival that we had a complimentary upgrade. This was the second time we'd stayed in a Skene House property and we were extremely impressed with this one. The place was immaculately clean and well equipped, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast was excellent. It's very well located for the city centre although finding the car park could become a new sport! Most definitely great value for money.

Room Tip: The third floor, where we stayed, has direct access to street level.

Stayed in the apartments in Rosemount for 4 nights - very clean and even though they were 5 years old the decor was as new. The room was duplex with a spiral staircase to the bedroom area. The breakfasts were excellent - especially Lynda who greeted us each morning as if we were her own family! She is a gem! Continental food range was great with an excellent range of food on offer from cornflakes, muesli etc to boiled eggs - if you wanted cooked breakfast - that was extra. Flat screen TV and high speed WIFI - were also great. Parking was initially a bit awkward to find but plenty on offer. Superb location with free parking.Often got cigarette smoke right outside the main exit door from inconsiderate smokers. Will stay again.

Stayed for one night (a Saturday) for £121. When first entering the apartment I did think it was very old fashioned compared to some of the pics on the website - the kitchen and bathroom units in particular were very dated as was the big old-style TV with a tube. BUT it was spotlessly clean, well appointed, excellently located, had free parking and free wifi and for £121 for 2 fair size bedrooms, a huge lounge, bathroom and kitchen in the centre of Aberdeen, you can't really complain about it being a bit old fashioned. Reception check-in was very friendly as was the help with the bags. The hairdryer was broken and they replaced it straight away. Noise from the upstairs flat was a bit of a pest - but the one below us probably said the same about us! I would definitely use it again.

Room Tip: Ask for specific rooms as pictured on website.

We were four friends planning a long weekend in Aberdeen. We searched Hotels.com to find a hotel that would be close to the senter of the city, be of a fare price and a hopfully good standard. We booked a two-bedroom suite and when we arrived, we all was very pleased by the service of the staff and the appartement. The bathroom was very nice, the bedrooms a little small, but that didn't matter much since we had a livingroom and a kitchen. The WiFi in the appartment worked very well! We had to go outside to an other building to eat breakfast. The breakfast was good, but the room was quite cold. We walked every day to the Union Street area and back, just about 10 min each way. We also went out on the countryside and the staff was very helpfull to find out what was best for us. We enjoyed our stay very much and will recommand this hotel especially to a group like us!

Flexible, friendly staff, eager to please. Our upgraded room was the gorgeous one they put in the photos with the red kitchenette and black tile bath. Could have easily stayed there a week if we needed to but we were just there for the night. Loved the huge roof windows with views of Granite City's skyline. Only issue was my unfamiliarity with opening said windows to get ventilation on what proved to be an unusually warm evening in early May. There was no AC in our unit so a bit stifling on the top floor. Plenty of food at the included continental breakfast downstairs: yogurts, toast, fruits (fresh kiwi!), selection of teas, boiled eggs, cold meats and cheeses.

Room Tip: Be sure to specify twin beds if you need them. Ask for a room across the street in the conference ce...

Thank you for taking the time to review Skene House Rosemount after your recent stay with us. I was delighted to read that you were so happy with your stay and your suite.
It is not very often that we get reviews saying that the weather was so warm in Aberdeen that the windows needed to be opened! Please be aware that we have staff on site 24 hours a day who will be happy to help with any issues in the suite whether you would prefer the windows opened or a fan provided.
I will make sure that our staff all get a chance to read your great comments.
Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you on your next Aberdeen trip.
