Welcoming Business Women in Aberdeen


Skene House Apartment Hotels has been catering to the needs of business travellers to a very high standard for over forty years.

Visiting a new city may be part of the job but venturing to an unknown part of the world can be, depending on your experiences and personality, run of the mill, exciting, exhilarating or perhaps daunting. At Skene House we want to make your Aberdeen experience as easy, pleasant and professional as possible. We have three central properties, based in well lit locations, within walking distance of rail and bus links, and a short taxi ride from Aberdeen airport. If you’d prefer to drive to reach us, then we offer free onsite parking in the heart of the city. This means that our guests don’t have to worry about the car, getting parking tickets or feeding the meter, neither do they find themselves searching for parking in a desolate multi-storey car park. Pack whatever you require in the back of the car and drive straight to us.

Skene House offers the spaciousness of an apartment with the convenience of hotel services. When our guests arrive in reception there is someone to meet them 24 hours a day. This means our visitors can check in at any time, knowing that a member of staff is always at hand. Our team is there to answer any questions, book cabs, give directions or deal with any potential issues or concerns you may have.

Once settled in your apartment you can make use of your own living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. If you don’t wish to venture out you can cook a healthy meal in your own kitchen, chill some wine in the fridge and make yourself at home. Unlike in a hotel, at Skene House it’s easy to cook your favourite foods or follow any dietary requirements you may have. Bring your own produce to stock the fridge or we can point you in the direction of a nearby supermarket. Alternatively a takeaway may be more tempting, and our reception staff can suggest quality options so you don’t spend time shopping or cooking. If you’d prefer to get out and explore the city we’ll happily recommend restaurants and bars to suit your palate and your preferences. Aberdeen has a range of great places to eat and drink, from vegan, excellent seafood and Aberdeen-Angus steak, to cocktails or craft beers, the choice is yours.

In terms of looking professional, hairdryers are naturally provided in every apartment, and if you’d like to request straighteners then please do so. We also have onsite laundry facilities so you can travel light.

Skene House provides strong wifi as well as a desk in every apartment so our guests can work as required. If you wish to hold informal meetings, out-with your apartment, then our stylish lounges are ideal. With free tea and coffee provided, you can rendezvous with colleagues in a smart, public space.

If you do get any leisure time then consider visiting one of partner gyms to attend a class, do a work out, swim, or spend time in the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. If you’d rather sight see or nip to the cinema or the shops, we can certainly point you in the right direction. Check out our blog for tips and information about Aberdeen and the surrounding area.

Skene House offers welcoming, secure, central accommodation in the heart of the Granite City. To discover more about our business accommodation click here. Call +44 1224 659 392 or email for further information.

      From business to leisure, we’ve got it!

  2. I love apartment type hotels as it’s a more relaxing way to enjoy your break. No busy schedules just go at your own pace. These look so stunning too.

      It’s a great way to feel at home, whether travelling for business or pleasure.

    2. Skene House Blogger says:

      If you travel a lot for business it’s easy to get tired of rich food and hotel rooms, an apartment that feels like home can make a big difference.

    What a welcoming place to stay by the sounds of it 🙂

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      That’s exactly what you need when you arrive in a new city for the first time. First impressions count.

  4. Claire says:

    Sounds like a great place.

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      Thank you Claire.

  5. Ohh I love the sound of the hotel! Will definitely check it out when I am in Aberdeen ever!

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      Do bear us in mind.

  6. Wifi is so essential in our modern world, for business and leisure! I have food allergies so being able to cook is fab whilst having the creature comforts of a hotel

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      It’s a good mix, I love a good kitchen wherever I stay.

  7. Kara says:

    I will definitely consider Skene House if we venture up to scotland again

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      It does work especially well for families. That’s was part of the initial concept when it was established back in the 70s.

  8. Stephanie says:

    This sounds fab, great idea to have the gym being able to be used to

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      Just because you’re away from home doesn’t mean you want to miss your gym session!

  9. This place sounds perfect for business trips. I really like that they have lounges available for meetings and it’s nice to hear a hotel confirm they have strong wifi, something I always find difficult to find when I’m staying away. The apartments sound really well equipped. I’m definitely bookmarking this for stays in Aberdeen.

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      The wifi is excellent. Makes a huge difference.

  10. Mary Abbott says:

    Looks like a great place, love that you can use the gym!

    1. Skene House Blogger says:

      Our partner gym is gorgeous. So many machines and classes but lots of treats too. Steam room anyone?
