A Romantic Weekend in Aberdeen

Romance is often spontaneous and surprising, whisking someone away somewhere new and making them feel special. Alternatively it can be taking the opportunity to spend quality time together in familiar surroundings.

If you’re considering a romantic getaway in Aberdeen, as a first time visitor or as a local, at Skene House Apartment Hotels we want to help you find the most romantic destinations to enjoy.

At Skene House Rosemount we offer slick, modern and luxurious duplexes, ideal for couples escaping the stresses of working life, or a romantic weekend away from the little ones. At our Whitehall and Holburn properties well furnished one bedroom apartments welcome any couple wishing to escape to the Granite City. If you desire an intimate evening in, then Skene House caters for that better than any hotel room. Each apartment and duplex has its own living area, private lounge with DVD player, and kitchen (ideal for popping a bottle of champagne into the fridge to chill or cooking a romantic meal for two). Guests have the luxury of a hotel, yet all the conveniences of home, enabling you to create a romantic atmosphere. Let us join the celebrations by offering a complimentary drink from our Honesty Bar, available in Skene House Whitehall and Holburn. Raise a glass to a long and happy relationship.

All the Skene House properties are located in central locations within walking distance of the city’s transport links and the best bars and restaurants. If you’d prefer to wine and dine then it’s easy to park your vehicle in Skene House’s free parking and explore Aberdeen at leisure, discovering the most romantic venues for a memorable night.

Restaurant – For atmospheric, candlelit meals and a taste of the exotic Nargile Mezeriye Restaurant on Skene Street is a renowned Turkish restaurant that serves up excellent meze platters and slow cooked meat dishes. It’s an intimate venue ideal for long conversations and tempting middle eastern cuisine.

Restaurant – Ideal for first dates or any date, the relaxed Italian Amarone on Union Street has a convivial atmosphere and a menu with something for everyone. From quality pizzas and pasta, to an extensive sea food offering as well as a grill menu Amarone is a smart choice with lots of options.

Bar and RestaurantNo.1 Bar and Grill on Queen’s Terrace is a stylish yet relaxed restaurant known for its Scottish cuisine. With modern decor in a traditional granite tenement No.1 has an intimate atmosphere as well as an excellent wine list.

Bar and RestaurantFusion Bar and Bistro offers a contemporary menu in a chic setting. With Perrier-Jouët inspired wall stencils and freshly cut flowers the setting is ideal for a romantic meal. Its menu is peppered with innovative ingredients providing a real talking point for foodies.

Bar – Darkly lit, with booths for private moments, The Tippling House on Belmont Street is known for its imaginative and grown up selection of cocktails. The variety and ingredients display a knowledge and a passion for cocktail creativity.

Good Morning – If you wish to spoil your partner by serving up breakfast in bed then, with a fully equipped kitchen, it’s easy to have a well stocked fridge and whip up a romantic feast in your own apartment. Or with a complimentary breakfast available (if you book directly with Skene House) it can be equally tempting to completely relax and let someone else do the hard work on your behalf. All you have to think about is what’s on the cards for the remainder of your romantic weekend … a walk along the beach, the cinema, a forest walk, or perhaps you might just cosy up in your duplex.

    That all sounds rather fabulous. I would love to explore Scotland more, as I’m a stone’s throw away. Would be a lovely treat for a weekend away.

      Thank you, we think so too. It’s a great mix of city living and then stunning countryside just a few miles away. Great base to explore from.

    Looks lovely. I’ve never been to Aberdeen but will definitely remember these apartments if we ever make the trip up 🙂

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      That’s a great start. We’ve been No1 on TripAdvisor for 5 consecutive years which is an achievement we’re hugely proud of. Would be lovely to welcome you.

  4. Emma says:

    Sounds like Skene House would really look after you! I spent 4 years in Edinburgh at University but I’m ashamed to say I never really ventured to the rest of Scotland. I have family from Aberdeen and would love to visit one day. Will keep you in mind!

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      Please do! We have a lot to recommend up here from where to eat to what type of activity/attraction that might interest you.

  5. Great info here. Looks like there loads of fab places to go to in Aberdeen.

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      I love visiting new cities but it always helps to have a little insider knowledge, that’s what we wish to provide for our visitors.

  7. Kara Guppy says:

    We will be in scotland for valentines day, closer to Dundee though with the kids in tow LOL

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      How romantic! I hope you enjoyed it. Do give us a shout if you head further north.

  8. Jenni says:

    Sounds fab, I wish we were doing something to celebrate but we will be at home probably eating pizza with the little one haha x

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      I totally understand. We welcome lots of families as we offer apartments rather than hotel rooms so our guests can get away from it all, but cook and eat pizza together if they wish too. I hope you enjoyed it.

  9. This is somewhere I have always wanted to visit but never yet had the chance

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      Please do. Would love to give you some recommendations of what to see and do.

  10. The accommodation sounds great, I prefer to stay in apartments rather than hotels when we go away for more than one night. Great suggestions for where to go as well.

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      It makes such a difference doesn’t it. Thanks. If you ever visit do get in touch for more recommendations.
