Finding affordable, quality accommodation for your wedding guests is one of the many decisions (alongside rings, cars, dresses, hairstyles and favours) that engaged couples need to ponder. But think on this: if your guests are happy, relaxed, comfortable and at ease with their surroundings it’s sure to impact positively on your big day.
At Skene House we know we offer a fantastic check list for any wedding party. Bring everyone together in our one, two and three bedroom apartments which are ideal for families or friends sharing. It’s also economical. Guests get the benefit of their own kitchen and living room, with the privacy of their own bedroom. We also have laundries onsite for any last minute wardrobe maintenance.
At our Whitehall and Holburn properties we’ll welcome wedding guests with a courtesy drink from the Honour Bar and they can raise a glass to the happy couple. In our apartments, pals can hang out together and then head to their own room to get ready – even hair straighteners are available on request. For families, kids can be watching television in the living room, as mum gets ‘wedding ready’ in the bedroom, and granddad prepares a snack in the kitchen. Keep some bubbles chilling in the fridge to celebrate, store milk and nibbles for the children to feed them as required. High chairs and travel cots are available free on request, there’s a toy box in every Guest Lounge, and a Wendyhouse and outdoor toys can be enjoyed at our Whitehall property. Our apartments simply deliver.
Skene House’s three locations are notably central, within walking distance of the bus and railway station, and a short taxi ride from the airport – ideal for visitors to the Granite City. In terms of last minute appointments, there’s a plethora of beauticians and quality barbers nearby that we’d happily recommend for manicures, blow-drys and pampering. It’s easy to pop out for any emergencies – forgotten toiletries, shoes, flowers, jewellery – you name it, we’ll help you find it.
A wedding is an excellent reason to see more of a city you may not know much about. Stay with us on the eve of the wedding and you’re in the heart of Aberdeen – fine dining and quality bars are on the doorstep – then attend the celebrations the following day, fresh from a night at Skene House.
Another aspect wedding guests appreciate at Skene House is the ability to cook for themselves. Weddings can be quite a hungry affair until the wedding breakfast is served. It can be challenging to find reasonably priced food at hotels, and it’s difficult to prepare any meals in a hotel room, but at Skene House shops are minutes away. You can whip up a quick bite or cook proper hearty meals in your own kitchen, or there’s a range of cafes providing takeaways and light lunches a short walk from every apartment. You can confidently sit through a wedding ceremony concentrating on the romance, rather than dinner!
Finally, we’re a family company and we care about family occasions. Let us help your guests organise transport to and from the venue, and assist with any other arrangements on this special day. For the bride and groom, knowing that your guests are in good hands is one important detail we can take off your mind, allowing you to focus on making memories.
