Stay as Long as You Want at the New Long Stay Skene Whitehall

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.

If you plan to be spending months in Aberdeen you need to be able to live your life whilst you’re here. To find out more about Skene House’s long stay offering at Whitehall please call +44 1224 659 392 or email reservations@skene-house.co.uk for further information. Skene House Holburn and Rosemount will continue to offer quality accommodation as before, from one night, to one week onwards, whatever you require.

  1. The longest I have ever stayed in a hotel was for 2 weeks and the novelty of the whole thing is starting to wear off by then, so I really wouldn’t like to have to stay in a hotel for longer than that. If you had to stay longer for business then somewhere like this would be ideal. You may not have all your home comforts with you but it will be a lot closer than it would with a hotel room. Not to mention the extra space etc. x

      After a certain amount of time the glamour wears off and home comforts start to matter more. That’s what we’ve focused on.

  2. What a great idea!! This is perfect for those who work away from home and need somewhere to stay long term, and what a gorgeous place to stay too!

      Some of the benefits of a hotel with the comfort of home – that’s our aim at Whitehall.

    That’s interesting. Long stay must be hard for those who are here on holiday for a while or working in the city for a set period of time. It also looks a lovely place to stay.

      Thank you. The ability to cook healthy meals can be a real game changer for our long stay residents.

  4. Great post. I nave stayed in a hotel for a month before when we moved to a new city. I was fed up after 2 weeks.

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      It’s funny how quickly the novelty can wear off!

  5. I have never stayed anywhere longer than a week but love that this place offers long term stays to suit some people who might need it

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      A week can often be all people can tolerate in a hotel so we’re trying to create a home from home.

  6. Wow, looks amazing! I love the design. Would definitely stay there for longer 🙂

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      We’ve aimed it at individuals, groups or families looking to stay for one month or more.

    What a fabulous idea for those that plan on staying for business or an extended holiday.

      Would make a huge difference to your everyday quality of life.
