We have been going to Skene House for a few years now since our daughter started Aberdeen University. It provides flat type accommodation with a small lounge, kitchen and bathroom with varying numbers of bedrooms. The complex is small enough to be really friendly and yet big enough to provide privacy. The staff are great as is the breakfast. No...

The room is spacious with a lounge and kitchenette area. Everything was clean and we had a comfortable stay. There is free parking at the back. The staff were very friendly and helpful when we checked in and the hotel is a short walking distance to restaurants and shops.

We had the pleasure of staying here in April 2017. An excellent value break with very well maintained accommodation. The rooms are well presented and very clean. Lovely breakfast and a complimentary drink with our stay. So much better than a hotel with room to move beyond your room. Excellent location. Highly recommend.

We must've got Whitehall on a bad day! Based on my stay I'd say it's just ok. We checked in without any problems and showing to our apartment. The bedrooms are a good size. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for a short stay. The lounge area lacks any character and just feels like it needs a...

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.

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
