Very quiet in hectic city. A walk to shopping. There really are not tourist sites in Aberdeen other than the museum so you will need transportation. Extremely large studio. Nicely equipped kitchen. Breakfast very nice. Our bed was horrible. Too bad or it would earn a nearly perfect score.

We stayed here after a night out with friends - we don't stay locally but didn't want to hike up the cost of our evening out too much. We stayed in a studio suite which had a double bedroom, bathroom and a lounge kitchen. Very clean and comfortable, brilliant staff who sorted out the minor problems we had speedily and...

This was a great base for our stay in Aberdeen. We were two couples and shared a two bedroom suite. The front desk people were very helpful in giving us driving directions to Balmoral Castle, picking restaurants in Aberdeen, and introducing us to the hotel's facilities. The rooms were spacious, well maintained, and clean. Free parking and wi fi were...

My wife and I have been visiting Aberdeen 3 or 4 times each year for the last couple and have mostly stated in City Centre Hotels which in general terms have been variable,however I wish we had visited and discovered the Skene House Whitehall much earlier in our travels.

This turned out to be one of the best apartments we have stayed in. The apartments occupy several houses in two adjacent streets in this part of Aberdeen so we were escorted to and reached our 2 bedroom apartment through the front reception building and across the car park.

The apartment was excellent and the staff did everything they could to help. What a pity that Francis of E Bookers who had booked assistance for our flights then failed to tell Skene |House that the clients were two disabled Pensioners with mobility problems.

The suite had two bedrooms and bathrooms, a kitchen, dining room, and living room. it was way more than i needed as a single traveler here on business.

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
