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. The problem? The bath and kitchen are located down a set of very steep steps. And all the rooms have heavy fire doors on them that will not...

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.

Skene House Holburn is well located on a quiet street yet within easy walking distance of central Aberdeen with off-street car parking available. A guest lounge and bar is located near reception.

Well located downtown Appart Hotel with a parking lot only for guests, very practical for a one week stay. The flat is small but well maintained with all amenities. Staff was helpful and professional. Even though they helped for the luggage, a lift could be really useful.

Staff was helpful after calling 3 times to try to figure out where the car park was located. It is in the middle of hustle/bustle and when sleeping with windows open (no a/c) I found that restful sleep just wasn't happening. Breakfast was continental with full breakfast available for a small fee. It is a small apartment like setting and...

Skene House, Holburn, Aberdeen: Something that was a plus and a minus was that our travel partner put us in the center of downtown, which I believe we indirectly asked for, in each city for lodging. Google maps brought us into Aberdeen using an indirect approach; which I’m very glad of. Although it was initially confusing as we were entering...

Overall, the Skene House Holburn was a very good place to stay. The apartment was of good size, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good although because we stayed a longer period of time, it got boring - no variety. Staff in the breakfast room was wonderful and they deserve an excellent rating. Front desk staff was courteous and professionally friendly....
