    It's close to the main street and main attraction. Supermarkets are nearby and quiet location.

    Everything! From the quality of the reception staff and concierge, to the ewsidents lounge where there was complimentary tea and coffee, to the quality of furnishings, in the suite and in the hotel generally, to the continental breakfast included in the price. Well done! The central position of all of Skene House buildings make them excellent for shopping/partying/eating in the centre of Aberdeen. We have stayed in Skene house suites before, and will certainly do so again

    Maybe the paintwork was a bit tired, but given the popularity of the hotel, this is not surprising

  • Older travelers

    The location and fact that family who are in aberdeen can visit and we can enjoy a meal and time together

  • Older travelers

    Extremely good value for money. Nice, clean and comfortable. Staff were polite, courteous and friendly. It was a pleasure to stay there.

    Nothing much in particular. Internal doors could have door closers for easy access.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The staff were very friendly and eager to do their job to a high standard, which they did.

    Did not receive complimentary airline tickets to Barbados!

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The hotel is ideally situated for shopping and the theatre and the hotel facilities are first class. Being an apartment hotel lends itself to longer stays where the use of the kitchen equipment would be an advantage. We also enjoyed the large well appointed lounge, being able to watch tv away form the bedroom was a very pleasant change to normal hotels. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone as it has something to appeal to all types of traveler.

  • Couple
    7.8

    The suite we stayed in was spacious and well appointed, it was clean and everything was generally in good order. I woudl definitely stay again as I think for £64 per night it was extremely good value when compared to some of the hotel chain prices you can pay for a tiny room. The suites are centrally located which was ideal as we were attending a wedding just outside the town. Staff wewre friendly and helpful.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Spacious with excellent facilities. Good parking and friendly staff. Breakfast was a great bonus.

    Only negative, was the rooms were very hot even with the heating turned down.
