My husband and I thoroughly recommend the Skene House Holburn. Skene House is effectively a hotel, but instead of just one room, they provide you with an entire apartment. It is excellent value for money at £61 per night booked on LateRooms.
For this, we stayed in a fully furnished and equipped apartment with 2 bedrooms, received a complimentary drink of our choice from the bar and enjoyed a plentiful continental breakfast in the morning, with the option of a hot breakfast at an additional cost. However, there was so much choice from the continental buffet that we didn't need to order anything cooked.
The location of the hotel is excellent, just off the top of Union Street, which is the main shopping street of Aberdeen. However, despite its city centre location there is very little noise from outside. It is a quick 5-10 walk to the shops and to the Music Hall and theatre so it's great if you would like to enjoy a night out and then stay overnight.
There is a private car park to the rear of the hotel, with barrier entry and CCTV so that its possible to leave your car and not worry about it. Once we had checked out, we requested to leave our car in the carpark while we went shopping for a few years and this wasn't a problem at all.
Skene House would be ideal for those visiting Aberdeen on business as having a full apartment at your disposal is far more comfortable than a single hotel room. Similarly, you can take your own food and drink and cook in the apartment if you would like to stay in rather than dine out.
Can't fault this place, we will certainly be returning in future.
