“Recent stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

I stayed here for work with my company recently. Whilst the room was very nice (serviced apartment style) I got to say their internet offering (bother wired and Wifi) was abysmal.

Being here on business meant that i had to be able to contact my company receive files write emails the usual sort of stuff. However every 20 minutes the internet would stop working even with a wired connection. I received one excuses after another to the point the connection was not usable.

For visiting the surrounding area the hotel made a great place to start visiting the local surroundings like union square.

The only other niggle i have is that the room i had was on two floors. the TV was down stairs so if you wanted to watch TV in bed and relax then this wasn't an option.

Thank you for choosing to stay at Skene House Rosemount and then taking the time to write a review.
I was sorry to note that there were a couple of problems during your time with us. I understand that the internet problems you encountered were far from ideal when you were trying to work. Please accept my apologies for this and be assured that this is something we are trying to improve.
I was also sorry to read that you were not as comfortable as you could have been in your suite. Our duplex suites are very popular but we do have suites on one level and also suites with TV's in the bedrooms too. Please do not hesitate to contact reception or our reservations department directly for any future bookings so we can allocate a suite that you would be more comfortable in.
Thank you again for taking the time to write a review and I hope we can welcome you back again soon.
Kind regards

We have visited Aberdeen several times over the last few years to visit my daughter but have never used the Skene House Hotel, despite the proximity of its location to her flat. This time I managed to secure a booking and my wife and I were very inpressed by our stay.

The online directions meant we were able to find the entrance to the car park easily - though it helps to view it on street view on Google Earth as well. The staff in reception were friendly and efficient and we were amazed by the suite itself. It was large and spacious with more than enough space to relax after a long drive. We were in the converted church which is next to the main building, which proved to be a bonus as that is where breakfast is served.

The suite was more than adequte for us with an excellently equipped lounge and kitchen, a walk-in shower room and excellent twin beds.

The breakfast was excellent with friendly and helpful staff.

The parking is free but not always available in the main building, as I discovered on the second day. The instruction sheet to the second car park which we obtained from reception looked a bit complex but listen to their instructions, drive slowly and check the road names after each turn adn it will all make sense. The only problem is that this carpark (behind the converted church) does not have a secure gate but is so hidden from public gaze that it doesn't matter. It is covered by the hotel CCTV though.

One word of warning - our suite had black doors on the kitchen cabinets, which meant it was possible to bang your head on them if they were open and you weren't looking. We didn't do it, but operated a mutual warning system between us. That's what old people do!

We will be back again, in the same suite if possible, for my daughter's graduation next year.

Room Tip: Be clear about your room preferences on the hotel booking form. The main building does not have a li...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review after your recent stay at Skene House Rosemount.
I think we met when you checked out and it was great to hear your comments then and to know that you enjoyed your time here so much.
As you mentioned our main car park sometimes fills up during busy periods. Our concierges have been known to jump in with guests to show them the way to the overflow so please don't hesitate to ask if the directions aren't clear.
Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you for your daughter's graduation.

Stayed for one night on March 22nd at Skene house Holbein and loved it. We checked in on the afternoon and then helped ourselves to a free coffee which is available in the reception. You are also allowed one free drink from the honesty bar which is a very nice touch. I had asked for a quiet room as I am a light sleeper and the room we got was on the top floor which suited us perfectly. The apartment was spotlessly clean with a nice size sitting room, a small bathroom which looked as if it had been installed quite recently, a small modern kitchen which had fridge microwave, toaster etc and a bedroom with built in wardrobes. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely use them again and the parking is also a bonus.

Room Tip: We had a room on top floor with bedroom as back which was quiet

This weekend we had our first stay with skene house suites , it was absolutely fantastic check in was easy and stress free then we went to our suite was more than had anticipated boasted a lovely spacious double bed bedroom which was spacious , airy and comfortable . A immaculate bathroom which was again modern and all you required . Then you had a living room with attached kitchen on open plan modern and fully equipped where you could wind down , cook a meal , grab a coffee and might seem nothing to others but fresh milk was in the fridge was a plus for me too as can't use the uht nonsense found in many a hotel it was overall a home from home and exceptional value the staff were friendly and polite and we would recommend skene house to all our friends will be a return visitor for sure

The Suites offered at similar cost to a Hotel 'room' we're spacious, clean, well equipped and overall very good. We realise parking in Aberdeen town centre is not easy, but suite outweighed inconvenience of parking. THANK YOU. I had opportunity to see a suite in Skene House Whitehall which was also outstanding.

Room Tip: Perfect location for exploring. Need to stay more than one night to appreciate facilities on offer.

Thank you for choosing Skene House Rosemount for your recent visit to Aberdeen and taking the time to write such a lovely review afterwards.
I wasn't sure from your review where you had parked but we do have on-site car parking. The main car park is behind the reception building but we also have an overflow behind the building where breakfast is served. Please do not hesitate to contact reception before any future visits and we will be happy to give you clearer directions. These can also be found on our website.
Thank you again and I look forward to your next trip.

After longish overnight flight arrived at hotel and suite wasn't ready , but that was our own fault as forgot to ask for early check in , receptionist said she would ask for it to be a priority ,took our mobile number and said she would call, but alas no call was made so we were either forgotten about or the suite couldn't be made ready for us , so we had a 4 hour wait .......when we did get into our suite , it was a big let down, looked nothing like the pictures on website, our suite was very tired looking :(, and needs decorated . The suite itself was very clean and adequately furnished , and could also be done with a chest of drawers (only 2 very small bedside units) and a full length mirror would be very welcome, bathroom adequate but a shelf in there would be good. Kitchenette, small but well stocked.
Although breakfast was included in our suite rate , we didn't try it as it is served in another building And since it was raining and cold we couldn't be bothered to get our coats on and trek down the street when we had a kitchenette to use .

Room Tip: No lifts in these properties , so if you have young children or not good with stairs, you would need...

Thank you for choosing Skene House Rosemount for your recent trip to Aberdeen then taking the time to write a review.
I was sorry to read that there were one or two issues during your time with us. I'm not sure which suites you were looking at on our website as there are quite a few different suite types. If you would prefer a particular suite for any future stays please do not hesitate to contact us at reception or reservations and we will try to allocate the best suite for your requirements. We are in the middle of a refurbishment program at the moment which will see us updating a lot of our suites over the next year or so but this will take time.
Thank you too for your suggestion regarding the chest of drawers and the full length mirror. I will pass these along to our Property Services department who are carrying out the redurbishments.
Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Very convenient location near the city centre. As we were travelling by car, it was great to have such a convenient free car park just outside the back entrance.
The breakfast had an excellent choice of dishes and the staff were most friendly.
The bed was comfortable and the bathroom and kitchenette were kept very clean.
I have no hesitation in recommending these apartments.
