Skene House HotelSuites - Holburn

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed 4 nights. The hotel was much smarter than some reviews had suggested. Our suite had a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. Kitchen facilities were adequate for most needs but you wouldn't be able to do a roast dinner there. Very handy for restaurants and take-aways, and there is a large secure car park to the rear. Our room (1st floor in number 18) was very quiet. The room is fully serviced to a high standard every day. Would definitely stay there again if in Aberdeen.

So, my second foray into the land of serviced apartments and another good experience. This time, breakfast was included in the cost, which saved me having to sort that in the morning - useful! I'm getting to like this style of accommodation - it allows me to cater for myself and offers more space than a hotel room does. It's a bit like being at home when the wife's away..I'll leave that right there. One thing, I was disappointed that the salt and pepper pots were empty? I had to improvise when pan frying my salmon fillets..just a small thing but quite important to the roaming gourmands among us ;-)

What a shame. The location is close to Union Street but the rooms are now looking very jaded. Also the was no TV in the bedroom which was a great shame. The breakfast is good with excellent table service.

I bought a stay in a 2 bedroom apartment for my mum’s birthday. They were absolutely thrilled with the accommodation. The location was fantastic and staff extremely friendly. (I also found this when telephone to make requests prior to their arrival, the staff were always extremely accommodating). The hotel was immaculately clean, decoration was fresh and tasteful, beds super comfortable and kitchen area ideal. They were especially taken with the view and were amazed at how silent it was despite being on the main road. All in all a superb stay. Thank you so much to all the staff. My parents are already talking about a return trip and they only got home 5 days ago!!

Have stayed at all three Skene Hotels service always great, this is THE best! Accommodated our requests as usual. Problem with booking on line, Receptionist agreed system needs upgrading. Any problems (booking) quickly sorted.

Stayed here last night. Service from staff was absolutely faultless, bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on and our rooms were spotless, free parking was a big bonus too. Only a couple of minuses- there was a strange smell in our lounge, couldn't put a finger on what it could be, and breakfast was pretty mediocre - cheap sausages containing little meat, scrambled eggs as easy option rather than fried and the Apple juice tasted incredibly cheap and probably not 100% fruit. On the whole though, the apartment was really good value for money and we would go back.

Stayed here at weekend for my fortythirteenth birthday. Apartment was spotless and well maintained. Reception staff were very helpful in organising taxis for us. Enjoyed our drink in the honesty bar. Well done to everyone involved in making for a pleasant stay

We were down in Aberdeen for a Script concert and I have to say a huge thanks to Skene House for adding to what was a fantastic weekend. Our stay really was flawless with really friendly reception staff. A lovely spotless apartment which was perfect and had everything we needed for a great comfortable stay (30/21). There is free parking and the location is perfect just off Union Street with numerous restaurants and bars nearby. Breakfast was also excellent and a great way to start the day. We will without question stay here again the next time we are in the area and would like so say a huge thanks to all the team at Skene House Holburn street for a wonderful stay.

Was the only choice in town for us ! The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendlier ! My surname is Skene & they didn't bat an eyelid ! I wish I owned the place though ? Our apartment was top floor so the stairs were a pain but the result more then made up for it. Full lounge, kitchen, bathroom & separate bedroom, absolute luxury, quiet & comfortable. The breakfast was first class as well and the nice touch of an Honour Bar with a free drink each was old world class & charm ! Could not speak more highly of the stay and just wished it was longer ! Maybe next time ??

Stayed here for the weekend as we like to have the option of making our own meals while we're away. Found it easily but really struggled to find the car park! It would be useful to be able to download a map from the website, but sent my fiance it to pick one up from reception. With the map the car park was easy to find, and because it was away from the main road I felt comfortable leaving it parked there all weekend. The gentleman at reception was incredibly helpful, made sure we knew where we were going and explained everything fully. He also told us that we were entitled to one free drink from the self serve bar, which was a nice surprise. We've stayed at several apartment-style hotels and usually expect a single room with a kitchen at one end and a bed at the other, so it was great to find out this had four separate rooms, it felt like a proper little house! It had everything you could possibly need, including a freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. As we were only there for the weekend we didn't need to use these, but it was nice to have the option. Everything was very clean and well looked after, decor wasn't ultra-modern but it made it feel much more homely. Location was fantastic, only 5 minutes walk from the very centre of the city, but once you were inside you would never have known, very quiet and peaceful. We both said it was a shame we couldn't stay longer, we would definitely stay again.
