Had a great night's sleep here. Fantastic staff and the room was clean and tidy with some dazzling furnishings. I can't fault any aspect of the visit and would highly recommend a stay here to my friends and family.

I knew Aberdeen was expensive so I started early looking for bargains. The offer from Skene House sounded as if it might be too good to be true but as it was the last room on offer I snapped it up, especially as the reviews were so good. I needn't have worried. After a very long and heavy day I...

We stayed in Skene House, Rosemount, about 18 months ago and were really impressed with all aspects of out stay. This week we stayed in Skene House, Whitehall for 2 nights but found it to be a bit of a mixed bag. Our apartment was excellent - roomy, well furnished and comfortable, and extremely clean. We were right at the...

While some might think these little apartels are cramped, as a solo traveler I thought it was perfect for one person. Great location, comfortable furnishings, solid wifi, close to grocery stores and cafes. The staff made this stay as good as it was. They were accommodating and considerate before I even arrived - I added a note requesting a room...

We stayed here for a week and it was absolutely lovely. The breakfast had plenty of options and the staff were so friendly. The kitchen had all needed appliances and even fresh milk in the fridge. The laundry facilities on site were an added bonus.

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
