“First class accommodation”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

The Skene is worthy of its number one position on trip advisor. We arrived after a long day of travel and couldn't have found a more friendly or helpful person than Luke at reception. He provided first class, professional and friendly service that made us feel welcome. The apartment was roomy, comfortable and very clean. It is a short walk into the CBD passing the Wallace statue on the way. Our stay will be remembered long after the holiday is over and we would recommend Skene House to any traveller visiting Aberdeen.

This is a 3-4 rating for my opinion. But as usual I am will not give higher rating that easily. If I were to travel with family. This hotel will be one of my top choices. And I would recommend families to look at this place as a very good option.

My experience- Moved out from another hotel(which was in my last review) due to booking made by my agent to stay at Skene House Whitehall. Stayed here for few nights. This is a nice hotel with spacious rooms. I consider this more as an apartment hotel. I have a room with an office attached with a working printer! Place is clean. Unfortunately for a apartment type room I was expecting a washing machine in the apartment - not the case. It was during my stay only available washing machine was on the opposite building. And the laundry room and the machine could have been much more cleaner(or newer). This is one of the things their management might need to look into.
The kitchen in my place was slightly small as I need to close the kitchen door to open the refrigerator. Not an issue as such but a bit of an inconvinient. Toilet was a bit tight for space too.
Living room and bedroom was nice sized. TV was only in the living room.
Overall a nice place to stay. If you need the extra space or if you are travelling with family, I would consider this place.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your recent stay with us. I am glad you appreciated the complimentary upgrade you were given into our Home Office Suite. As you noted the workspace includes a printer which is useful for those wishing to work whilst staying with us. We offer a wide variety of suites, some of which do include washing machines within them, as we realise that a communal laundry room is not to everyone’s taste.

As your review mentions, we do offer more space than a traditional hotel room, and we hope you will consider staying with us again should you return to Aberdeen.

Kind Regards

Not so far from the station that we could not walk, but not ideal location for shops and restaurants.
ALL staff were friendly and well trained.
We were taken through several doors and across the car park to a ground floor "flat" with a double and single room. Very clean and well decorated.Good kitchen and bathroom.Unfortunately the heating and towel rail timer must have been set badly and they never came back on in the morning.
The mattress and pillows were not of a high standard however, which was a great pity.
The first drink in the well stocked locked honesty bar (near reception)is on the house, how good is that!
The breakfast room is very attractive and food and service fine.
I would return.

Room Tip: Some ground floor, some beside car park, ask for what you need.

Staff couldn't have been more genuinely helpful. Suite was spotless and spacious.Great to have secure parking and be so close to centre too. Would definitely recommend a stay here. We returned home relaxed and rejuvenated after our short break.

I expected a bedroom with some extra desk space and ended up in a substantial two bedroom flat with separate living room, fully equipped kitchen, and bathroom. The included continental breakfast buffet was excellent, and there were very good value hot options if needed. With free parking and a welcome mini bottle of wine, what more could you ask for in downtown Aberdeen!

It’s lovely to read such positive feedback of your recent stay. As you have found, our HotelSuites are a fantastic alternative to a traditional hotel room, offering more space and comfort.

As one of the few serviced accommodation providers that offers a continental breakfast buffet, we find that this is always welcomed by our guests.

I hope you will return to Skene House on your next visit to Aberdeen.

I will defintely recommend this hotel. We got a really nice apartment, with two bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and living room. The maintenance was good. It was clean, cozy and the location was perfect. Not far from Union Street and shopping districts. The breakfast was great, and of couse, the staff at the hotel. They were so nice, and made our stay even better. A big thanks to Lindsay! Next time we're in Aberdeen, we know where to stay:)
