Book Your Family into Self-Catering Apartments in Aberdeen this Christmas – This year many of us are booking accommodation near our relatives, rather than staying in their homes. If you’re seeking Christmas accommodation in Aberdeen, then make it Skene House Whitehall. We may have to be flexible this year, but Christmas definitely isn’t cancelled.
Our spacious apartments offer a home from home. Everyone in your household can have their own bedroom, privacy and space to relax. Our apartments are family friendly too —request a high chair or travel cot and we’ll have it clean and in place for your little one. Plus, feel free to bring your four legged friend – Christmas is for all the family, after all.
Each apartment has its own living room. Whether travelling solo or with your family, this gives you space to curl up and relax or watch a Christmas movie. And, if restrictions allow, it’s the kind of space where you can accept visitors, if it’s permitted of course.
Our fully furnished kitchens are a real asset right now when rules on dining out alter regularly. If restrictions allow, you have the option of booking a slap up meal in one of Aberdeen’s finest restaurants. But for those who’d rather keep to themselves, our quality kitchens allow you to prepare meals for yourself and your family. It’s possible to follow any dietary requirements or prepare your personal Christmas family favourites in your own space. And, if it’s allowed, you could even cook for guests.
If you wish to know any specifics about the kitchen’s utensils provideded, then just call or drop us a line and we’ll answer your questions and help as much as we can, or check out the thorough list at the bottom of the post.
Whitehall’s outside terrace allows for al fresco meet ups, essential if indoor gatherings are restricted. Having some socially-distanced outdoor space can make a big difference when the winter sun shines. Fresh air and greenery on tap.
Skene House Whitehall is situated in the Rosemount area of Aberdeen city, within walking distance of the rail, ferry and bus terminals. Aberdeen airport is roughly a 20 minute drive away. Whitehall is close to Aberdeen’s bars, restaurants and cafés, there’s fun to be had, but, on a practical note, Whitehall is also within walking distance of a host of independent shops. We’re talking fishmongers, butchers, gift shops, florists, beauty salons and barbers. Guests have the benefit of the big city, plus the unique offering of quality boutiques on the doorstep.
If you need to work over the Christmas holidays then we can set up a bedroom as a home office for you, or add a desk in your living room. Just drop us a line, and we’ll be as accommodating as possible. Skene House’s free wifi is notably strong for any online meetings, work or submissions!
Our short stay offering is for bookings of 5 nights or more. For those who need value for money long stay accommodation, or for those coming from further afield, please ask about our competitive rates for long stay guests, and make Skene your festive Aberdeen base.
When travelling for Christmas many cars are loaded to the max. Outfits, gifts, decorations, food and drink! When you reach Aberdeen the last thing you need is to struggle finding a car park. Skene House offers its guests free onsite parking. Simple.
If you’re booking accommodation for yourself or for others, you want it be as safe as it can be. Skene House has high standards of cleaning protocols and ‘We’re Good to Go’ accredited by VisitScotland, which means we’ve diligently completed the official COVID-19 risk assessment.
On top of this, our housekeeping team is well practised in the appropriate use of cleaning products, including correct dosing, effective application, and the use of the right product on each surface and environment.
On top of our own deep clean protocol, Rentokil’s Coronavirus Specialist Disinfection Services visited Skene House to disinfect our public areas and accommodation. Plus, Andersen Caledonia, visited Skene House to test our public areas and accommodation. All our tests came back negative.
You don’t have to have family in Aberdeen to take a break. After all the restrictions, travelling somewhere new may be just the ticket. Take in the city’s Christmas lights and tree, browse the Christmas market and take blustery walks on the beach, before returning to experience some Skene House ‘còsagach’!
