Quality Accommodation for the Business Traveller in Aberdeen

Skene House is a popular choice with business travellers for one simple reason, it offers quality. We provide the benefits of fully serviced apartments with the luxury of a hotel. Our Whitehall property has been voted number one on Tripadvisor for over five consecutive years, and our Rosemount property is at number two. This is why…

Location – When you’re on business you don’t want a lengthy commute. Our properties are located in central Aberdeen, in close proximity to the bus and rail stations, and a taxi ride from the airport. The central location also means that if you do have any downtime you can live your life when the work stops – eat in a fine restaurant, browse or dine in the Union Square shopping centre which is open till 8pm, go to the cinema or meet colleagues for a drink.

Conduct Business – Skene House is known for its meeting rooms so it perfectly feasible for your delegates and colleagues to have everything they need under one roof. We also have luxurious lounges with complimentary tea and coffee where it’s common for our business guests to hold informal business meetings and chat at their leisure.

Wifi – Skene House provides excellent free wifi. We know what it feels like to visit a location, or hop on a train, where the wifi simply isn’t strong enough to enable you to get on with your day and your work. At Skene House you can get online in your apartment or in the lounges with ease.

Apartments – Our apartment set up means that if you do take work home with you it can be completed in your living room or at the kitchen table. You don’t have to work perched on the end of a hotel bed. This gives you that separation between work and play, leave the work in one room and relax in another, though of course if you wish to complete a spreadsheet from the comfort of the bedcovers nobody will ever know. As the apartments are serviced, at the end of a working day you’ll return to clean rooms, fresh towels and calm.

Home Office – Our Home Office apartments are a great solution for out-of-town business as they come with a designated work area with free Wi-Fi, alongside double or twin bedrooms, spacious lounge areas and a private kitchen. Yes, we’ve thought of everything.

Healthy Living – Eating out each night is a novelty at first but it can soon wear off and it’s not long before a business traveller craves ‘normal’ food, home comforts and familiar flavours. Any travellers with dietary requirements know how hard it can be to dine out time and time again. As each apartment comes with its own furnished kitchen it’s easy to whip up your favourite food, create a simple unfussy dish or prepare an essential gluten free dinner. Our reception staff are happy to recommend takeaways or restaurants and cafes if you’d prefer to venture out.
Going away on business doesn’t mean that your healthy lifestyle remains at home. We can organise gym passes with our partner gym or recommend jogging routes. Take a look at our Healthy Living blog post for further inspiration.

Laundry – If you do have any laundry requirements Skene House has facilities at all three of its properties, so if a business trip is unexpectedly extended you don’t have to pay expensive dry-cleaning bills or panic-buy additional items. For long stays it’s also an option to select an apartment with a washer drier. We’ve got it all cleaned up.

Safety – When visiting a new and unfamiliar city safety is paramount. Skene House properties are based in well lit, central locations. Reception is manned 24 hours a day so whilst guests have the benefit of their own apartment they have the assurance and safety of staff nearby and on call.

Parking – Free onsite parking at all of our properties takes another expense and headache off your shoulders. You can thank us later.

Little Extras – Guests at our Holburn and Whitehall properties receive a free drink from our honour bar to welcome them to Aberdeen. We’ve also thrown some extra touches into our accommodation such as powerful hair-dryers, and hair straighteners (on request) to help professionals look the part. Business travel should be as comfortable as possible.

Breakfast – Whilst it’s perfectly feasible to prepare breakfast in your own apartment it’s also possible to book a cooked breakfast buffet at Skene House. The choice is yours.

Rates – Skene House apartments can be booked for one night, for long stays or for relocation purposes. Talk to us about your requirements and we’ll find an apartment that fits your needs.
