My time in Skene House Whitehall in Aberdeen was very comfortable, and I would not go anywhere else in the future. The service from the very get go was both friendly and willing, but nonetheless, I think one thing people need to know is these are not suites, but full sized apartments, in separate homes on a parking space in Aberdeen, each with their little mini-garden. The stay was very comfortable, and the value for money at the property was immense. It felt very British (Scottish) in a very nice way- this place felt a bit like home. Yet, normal hotel services are not available, such as slippers, bath robes, etc.- adding this would truly improve the quality of someones stay, in my opinion.
There is also no restaurant on site, although breakfast is provided- I also am under the impression that room service is not available.
In short, this is a great hotel in a great location, but please do note that they are serviced apartments rather than ''suites'' in a hotel in the traditional sense- there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, as long as you are prepared for what is at the other end of the door.
The lounge is very comfortable, very homely, the free wifi is handy, the array of teas and the bar is also a great add on. Overall, a very comfortable base in Aberdeen, and one that I most certainly will return to.
- 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
