Aberdeen is known for big business, and big projects. This means that people often commit to the city for extended periods of time. If you, or your boss, need to spend potentially months in Aberdeen on a project, or if you’re relocating to the Granite City, our new offering at Skene House Whitehall may become a home from home.
Most people can handle a business trip for a few days, but after several weeks away a hotel room often doesn’t cut it. The novelty of eating out ebbs away as the desire for a home-cooked meal grows, there’s no space to entertain visitors or family, washing clothes and storing food is an interesting challenge, eating breakfast in the restaurant becomes more of a chore than a treat, even making a decent coffee in a hotel room can be disheartening. We are business travellers ourselves and we know what we’re talking about.
Skene House Whitehall is newly specialising in long stay accommodation of a month’s duration or more. Our offering eliminates all the problems highlighted above. We have one, two or three bedroom apartments to choose between. Each apartment has its own kitchen (with a dishwasher, a full range of implements and crockery) and living room, allowing residents to cook healthily, store food, work and relax as desired. Request an apartment with its own washer/drier or use the guest laundry at any time of the day or night. Our outside terrace allows for al fresco dining, working or basking in Aberdeen’s globally renowned summer – but joking aside having some outdoor space can make a big difference when the sun shines or if you want some fresh air and greenery, especially if you’re used to having a garden at home. Whether you’re a lone business traveller, relocating with your family, or looking for long term quality accommodation, Skene House feels like home. We give you your own space in which to work, live, relax and just be.
Skene House also offers the key benefits of a hotel. There is strong, free Wifi throughout the building. The lounge is ideal for holding informal meetings, and with free tea and coffee available it’s an excellent area for socialising or a place for your visitors to wait for you. Skene House properties are manned 24 hours a day, so there is always someone at the front desk to book taxis, ask directions, request recommendations, and give guests a little peace of mind as they get used to life in a new city. And if you take a wider look at the Skene House Blog you’ll find a range of posts highlighting the best, the curious and the unmissable in Aberdeen, making the time you spend here that little bit more fulfilling.
Skene House Whitehall is centrally located in the heart of Aberdeen’s Rosemount area. Guests can walk from the train and bus station, whilst the airport is a short taxi ride away. Our free parking is another bonus in the busy city centre. Close to Aberdeen’s bars, restaurants, cafes, clubs, cinemas and theatres there’s fun to be had, but on a practical note Whitehall is also within walking distance of a supermarket, shops, barbers/hairdressers/beauticians, dry cleaners and cobblers. We also have a partner gym (with regular classes, swimming pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi) where guests can keep fit and active, essential over a long stay, or we’ll happily point you in the direction of popular jogging or walking routes.
Our Whitehall property is the best in Aberdeen: voted number one on TripAdvisor for five consecutive years it delivered what people were looking for. We’re excited about its new future as quality long stay accommodation.
