“Great hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

Stayed here for 4 nights for work. My room was on the 6 floor and had an excellent view of HM theatre and was very pretty as the sun was coming up. Rooms were clean. A few times I'd left my dishes to do the next day and when I came back housekeeping had done them for me! I didn't have much contact with hotel staff - just the breakfast staff and 1 lady in particular stood out and was always very cheery and friendly. It's only a short 5-10 minute walk from union street which is great for shopping, theatre and restaurants. Overall a great hotel and I would definitely stay again!

Thank you for choosing to stay at Skene House Rosemount for your recent work trip to Aberdeen.
It was great to read that you enjoyed your time here. Although the top floor doesn't suit everyone there are definite perks to being there. The Aberdeen skyline and the peace and quiet are two of them.
Our housekeeping team and our breakfast staff will be very pleased to hear that you found them so helpful and cheery. I'm never quite sure how the breakfast team manage it so early in the morning!
Thank you again and hopefully we will see you soon.
Kind regards

Brilliant concept and execution! This apartment hotel offers lovely, spacious, clean apartments complete with full kitchen, bath (shower only but a good one), 2 bedrooms and a living room, two flat screen TVs and complimentary buffet breakfast with meats and cheeses, beautiful homemade bread, croissant and all the usual goodies. Reception was friendly and fast (and we got upgraded) both checking in and out. Great central location - you can walk anywhere - and very helpful staff. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review after your recent stay with us at Skene House Rosemount.
I was delighted to read that everything seems to have been just right for your time here. However, if you would prefer a bath for any future visits please do not hesitate to contact us directly so we can allocate the best suite for your preferences.
I will make sure all of our staff get a chance to read your lovely comments and I will also make sure these are passed along to The Breadmaker. They are a local bakery giving adults with learning difficulties a chance to get into the workplace and we source a lot of our baked goods from them.
Thank you again and we look forward to your next visit.

My brother and I had to travel to Aberdeen to visit a relative in hospital. It was to be a flying visit and frankly we were horrified at the hotel prices there. Obviously a shortage of rooms so there were simply no last minute offers as no-one undercuts the high prices. 2 rooms were going to cost us at least £200 each, most without breakfast too! At the last minute he found Skene House and we couldn't have been more pleased with our 2-roomed apartment and 2 bathrooms! Continental breakfast buffet had good selection of food and if we return again this will be the first place we try.

Stayed 14/12 for one night, location perfect, staff friendly, breakfast great. What let it down was partying either below or next to us, although at times, sounded like they were in the same apartment, intermittently through the night from about 1am till 9am! doors were slammed, music played, singing, laughing loudly (they were enjoying themselves yes).
Obviously we should have phoned reception, but to be honest we thought someone else would, plus it would go quite enough for us to fall asleep till they partied again.

We didn't think the room was superior, more like a student flat, very basic, with very uncomfortable beds. Room and apartment size is good though. But Nothing like the photos supplied on website.

Room Tip: Ask if the room you're allocated is recently refurbished and check there are no large parties of...

Thank you for choosing Skene House Rosemount for your recent trip to Aberdeen and then taking the time to write a review.
I was sorry to note that you were interuppted by less thoughtful guests in an adjacent suite. Our night concierge team do carry out regular walk-rounds of the site but on this occasion they may have missed the problem. Hopefully this issue won't happen again but please do not hesitate to contact reception directly and our night concierges will be happy to deal with the problem.
For any future bookings please do not hesitate to contact reception or our reservations team directly. We can then go through your requirements for a suite and allocate you something more suited to your tastes.
Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip.

As I booked this at the last minute I wasn't sure what to expect. What we got was superb value for money and really nice staff. The apartment was clean, well-equipped and very central. The continental breakfast, included in the price, was excellent and the staff working in the restaurant were so helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend these apartments to anyone visiting Aberdeen.

I was initially booked at another location for 2 nights for my graduation and due to unfortunate circumstances they cancelled just a few days before arriving in Aberdeen. I frantically looked for alternative accommodation (something very difficult, if not impossible, during graduation week) and Skene House Rosemount was thankfully available. Location is simply perfect! Sad i had never come here before! Only 3 minutes form RGU schoolhill campus/Bon accord centre. We had a superior double suite (one double and one twin room) which also had a lovely sitting room with tv, ironing board, internet cable connection, wifi, a lovely kitchen with fresh milk every morning and tea & coffee making facilities. The bedrooms were quite spacious and very nicely decorated - clean and modern but not too much. The bathroom was also lovely and clean - only thing is that one bathroom between four people was a little bit challenging. Nonetheless, quite manageable. Breakfast was continental but very varied, more than enough really and Im a full scottish breakfast lover! Reception staff were equally helpful and courteous. Highly recommended - honestly nothing bad to say.
