Be My Guest, at Skene House Apartments Aberdeen:- When you’re a guest somewhere it’s nice to feel special and, simultaneously, feel at home. First impressions also matter. At Skene House we’ve designed Guest Lounges to impress you, and to enable you to welcome others.
Our Guest Lounges are individually decorated. Internationally renowned designers have shaped and crafted key spaces to welcome you to our three city centre properties. Complimentary tea and coffee is provided. A range of seating is available, from sofas to relax in, to tables and chairs for a meeting, dining or work. Skene House provides excellent and notably strong wifi and power points, plus a range of local publications including newspapers and magazines, so our visitors can take a moment to relax or work, as they wish.
Our stylish one bedroom suites and two or three bedroom apartments offer a LOT of space, but sometimes it’s nice to spend time in a more communal, shared setting. Connect with other human beings! We regularly spot guests in the lounges reading the paper as the sun streams in the window, people-watching the streets of Aberdeen, or nursing a hot cup of tea as the snow falls outside.
Our Holburn and Whitehall properties offer Honour Bars. Wine, beer, spirits and soft drinks are available. Enjoy an aperitif, digestif or a casual pint at the end of the day, or perhaps a lunchtime white wine is on the cards? Because all our apartments feature fully furnished kitchens, guests can bring or purchase their favourite beverages, chill them as required, then bring their bubbles, vino or beer down to the lounge to enjoy.
The lounges provide a civilised space for groups of guests or business travellers to gather before heading out for the day. We love it when our guests are visiting family who reside in Aberdeen, they often meet and reunite in our lounges – from newborns to great-grandparents, it’s heartwarming to share their reunions.
It’s worth bearing in mind that it’s also a very safe and smart option when it comes to meeting non-guests or business associates at the hotel. Informal meetings are regularly held in the lounges, you can offer your guest refreshments before tackling the business of the day.
For those who are truly seeking a home from home, consider our long-stay specialist property at Whitehall. Its vibrant and dynamic lounge was designed by Paul Hull, David Hicks‘ Chief Designer. The finished result is comfortable yet polished.
The Holburn property accepts bookings for one night or more, and has the homeliest vibe. It’s the work of international designer, Lynne Hunt, who’s worked with hotels such as Claridges, and whose style is described as ‘contemporary, fresh and full of unexpected twists’. Play traditional board games, such as chess, draughts or old school Connect 4, or make a beeline for the pick ‘n’ mix sweeties in jars. Calming green hues, paintings of flora and fauna on the walls, and relaxing armchairs: it’s a green oasis in the heart of the city.
And Skene House Rosemount? Another great short-stay, situated next to the buzz of His Majesty’s Theatre, the shops, bars and nightlife of Aberdeen. It’s our most modern lounge – pale pine contrasts withs burnt oranges and rich ruby reds, creating a fresh and uplifting space. Designed by Stephen Ryan, Rosemount’s lounge fits his brief of ‘the latest in contemporary styling’.
