“Such a friendly welcoming place”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Such a great place to stay when in Aberdeen. Originally booked a studio via their web site for £58.00 and got given a 1 bedroom apartment as we had asked for twin beds.

The staff were so welcoming from check-in staff to the concierge who took us to the room and showed us all the facilities of the room. The place was so clean and spotless and comfortable too.

Free parking Free WiFi and continental breakfast included for £58.00 and lots of space much better than any hotel and such good value.

Thank you very much for your kind comments. We are always grateful to hear directly from our guests, about how much they've enjoyed their stay with us. The staff will be delighted to read your review.

I am sure you will agree a staying in a suite is much more comfortable than staying in a hotel room. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to upgrade your suite. We have an excellent Housekeeping team and all the staff, take real pride in their work. I am delighted that that our staff looked after you in the way that Skene House is reputed for.

I hope we have the opportunity of welcoming you back soon.

Kind Regards

I had previously stayed at Skene House in Holburn and found this very good so decided to stay at Whitehall this time around. Again, the service was second to none, matched only by the excellent facilities and accommodation. There is nothing to fault at Skene and the apartments offer everything you will need. With on-site parking, free Wi-Fi internet access and very nice lounge (with honesty bar) and dining area I would say don't bother staying in a hotel as Skene Whitehall offers much more for your money. I should not forget to mention all the staff who are very friendly and helpful and make your stay a pleasure. I will definetely be staying again when in Aberdeen.

I stay often in Aberdeen and can chose any of the numerous hotels regardless of cost. I chose always to stay at the Skene House in Whitehall because of the quality of accommodation, you get a living room and kitchen on top of a bedroom with the services of a regular hotel. This makes hotel living very comfortable. the staff are very friendly and accommodating. It is a short walk into Union Street with all the shops and restaurants. It also has off street parking which is a must in a city center hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed over while going to a concert in the Music Hall. Has good free parking and is only a 10 minute walk to the Holborn end of Union Street. Check in was very good and was given an explanation of the public areas and then shown to our suite. We had booked a 1 bed suite and was given room 832. This is up on the top floor with sloping ceilings, so beware if you are tall!!

Place was spotless and well equipped. A separate sitting area with what looked like a wardrobe but turned out to be a mini kitchen. Good quality shower room is also included.

There is an honesty bar and the 1st drink of your visit is free. The continental breakfast is excellent and more than enough for most people. If you want a cooked breakfast, there is a good choice and can be pre-ordered.

The staff are first class, very attentive, polite and couldn't do enough for us. We will be back next time we stay over in Aberdeen.

First time in Aberdeen and first time in serviced accommodation, I could't have asked for better. Speedy check in and escorted to my suite. Accommodation was excellent and spotlessly clean. Great continenal breakast, but I ordered an omelette which was fantasic. All the staff were friendly and helpfull. I think I have been converted, no more hotels for me......

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
