Booked apartment to meet up with family this weekend, not sure what to expect when booking but I was not disappointed, excellent apartment. Honestly we all felt at home in the apartment and had a great weekend finishing off with a family meal in the well equipped kitchen /dinner. Would definitely recommend this apartment and will use again.

I booked four apartments for Saturday night for a family celebration at Skene House Holburn and we had a perfect stay. The apartments were all really spacious, well equipped and the standard of housekeeping was very good. The apartments have a brilliant city centre location and there is the added advantage of a large barrier controlled car park. Staff too...

I cannot fault Skene House Holburn. I would highly recommend it as a place to stay and we found the reception / concierge staff on the three nights we stayed from 04/11 to 06/11 to be brilliant. Definitely worth a visit.

We have stayed in many hotels in Aberdeen over the years, but a friend recommended a year or two ago that we try Skene House Serviced Apartments(specifically the Holburn location).Skene House is an excellent choice and much better value than a hotel room-for a similar price range you have the advantage of a comfortable living room and full facility kitchen...

Exceptional rooms with exceptional staff. Located within walking distance of the city we could not ask for a nicer place to unwind after a day out. Cannot say enough nice things about the staff. Breakfast was nice, rooms large with kitchen and separate living area. Will stay again!

Three friends traveling together and we booked this hotel. We had a very roomy suite that incorporated two bedrooms, a drawing room with fireplace, lichen and bathroom. The hotel is very clean.

It was a nice surprise when we open the door of our 3-bedroom suite and we realized that we had a very big and nice apartment in our disposal. Big bedroom with comfortable beds, nice livingroom. and a kitchen with all facilities. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Very important the private parking in the back yard of the hotel.
