We booked this hotel based on trip advisor reviews, and were right to do so.
We booked a suite which included a double room/bathroom, plus lounge and kitchen for the same price as we could get standard hotel rooms in other places in the city - we were only there 2 nights but it was great to have a bit more space, it made it feel more homely.
The staff were great and Lindsay on reception was extremely friendly and helpful (i asked a lot of questions!), and the continental breakfast included was lovely with a great choice. There was a nice communcal lounge next to reception with an honesty bar, which was through a 'hidden' door and felt like an adventure.
The 'negative' I could come up with was that the decor of the room was slightly outdated, and the door bell to the apartment block was loud, but it was in good condition and very clean - and i'd much rather that it was clean, everything worked, and was good value as it was in Skene House, than being in a trendy new, more expensive hotel, that might not take the same care over maintenance.
Summary - if going to Aberdeen, stay here! Thank you to the hotel for helping us to have a lovely trip to the city :o)
- 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
