Location

When you’re on business you don’t want a lengthy commute. Our properties are located in central Aberdeen, in close proximity to the bus and rail stations, and a taxi ride from the airport. The central location also means that if you do have any downtime you can live your life when the work stops.

Wifi

Skene House Duplex

Skene House provides excellent free wifi. We know what it feels like to visit a location, or hop on a train, where the wifi simply isn’t strong enough to enable you to get on with your day and your work. At Skene House you  hold meetings via zoom, and keep in touch with friends and family with our free strong wifi.

Keep Yourself to Yourself

Each apartment comes with a fully furnished kitchen and its own living room. In most hotels guests are forced to eat out, venture into town or dine in the hotel restaurant. With Skene House, the city’s bars and restaurants are on the doorstep, but you have the option to prepare your own food at home.

Even before Covid-19 Eating out each night is a novelty at first but it can soon wear off and it’s not long before a business traveller craves ‘normal’ food, home comforts and familiar flavours. Any travellers with dietary requirements know how hard it can be to dine out time and time again. As each apartment comes with its own furnished kitchen it’s easy to whip up your favourite food, create a simple unfussy dish or prepare an essential gluten free dinner. Our reception staff are happy to recommend takeaways or restaurants and cafes if you’d prefer to venture out.

Breakfast

Breakfast – If you don’t fancy rustling up breakfast in your suite it’s easy to opt for the B&B option at Skene House Holburn. Treat yourself for your entire stay, or perhaps just one quiet morning. Now, breakfast will be delivered contactlessly straight to your door.

Space to Work

Our apartment set up means that if you do take work home with you it can be completed in your living room or at the kitchen table. You don’t have to work perched on the end of a hotel bed. This gives you that separation between work and play, leave the work in one room and relax in another, though of course if you wish to complete a spreadsheet from the comfort of the bedcovers nobody will ever know.

Home Office

Our Home Office apartments are a great solution for out-of-town business as they come with a designated work area with free Wi-Fi, alongside double or twin bedrooms, spacious lounge areas and a private kitchen. Yes, we’ve thought of everything.

Parking

Free onsite parking at all of our properties takes another expense and headache off your shoulders. You can thank us later.

Serviced Hotel Suites

 

At Skene House Holburn, apartments will be cleaned post-stay for visits of five nights. And they will be cleaned weekly for longer stays, at a mutually agreed time, when the guest is absent to ensure contactless service. Skene House Whitehall is long stay and Skene House Rosemount offers self-catering, so ideal for those who wish to keep themselves to themselves, and do not require housekeeping.

Healthy Living

Going away on business doesn’t mean that your healthy lifestyle remains at home. We can organise gym passes with our partner gyms or recommend jogging routes. Take a look at our Healthy Living blog post for further inspiration.

Laundry

If you do have any laundry requirements Skene House has facilities at all three of its properties, so if a business trip is unexpectedly extended you don’t have to pay expensive dry-cleaning bills or panic-buy additional items. Use our free laundries, or book an apartment with a washer drier. We’ve got it all cleaned up.

Safety

When visiting a new and unfamiliar city safety is paramount. Skene House properties are based in well lit, central locations. Reception is manned 24 hours a day so whilst guests have the benefit of their own apartment they have the assurance and safety of staff nearby and on call.

Little Extras

Guests at our Holburn and Whitehall properties can purchase drinks from our Honour Bar. In the past guests helped themselves, now drinks can be ordered and delivered to your suite pre or during your stay, and delivered con tactlessly. Business travel should be as comfortable as possible.

Stay as Long as You Want
