Certificate of Excellence
Skene House Holburn's 39, 1 to 3 bedroom individually designed HotelSuites are in an enviable location - where the West End meets the city centre. Across the road you'll fine one of our Partner Gyms; a stroll up a cobbled lane and you'll feel the buzz of Union Street's restaurants, bars and coffee shops; around the corner you'll find Rose and Thistle Streets' stylish boutiques and cafes. The professional business district, which flanks Rubislaw and Queen's Terrace Gardens, are on the doorstep.
