Seeking family accommodation in Aberdeen? Christmas and Hogmanay are about being with the people you love, bringing families together in a way that ensures peace and harmony, rather than festive fury and fall outs! At Skene House we can fit you in, whether it’s Christmas or any other time of the year, and we can give your family and friends space to be themselves, space to relax, space to cook, and space for privacy and familial decompression as required. As a family business, we completely understand the highs and the lows of family life!

So let’s bamboozle you with the almost infinite range of options at Skene House. As standard, each one, two or three bedroom Suite comes fully equipped with a furnished kitchen diner, and its own living room – ideal for family get-togethers and celebrations.
But families aren’t always ‘standard’ so let the magic begin.
  • How Many Members of my Family can Stay at Skene House?
If you fancy a solo break of peace and goodwill to all men, then minimum occupancy is one, but our three bedroom apartments can hold six adults plus cots for infants – for example, you could have a cot in each bedroom. We also provide high chairs as standard.

 To make a block booking your family could have exclusive use of various Skene House properties. At our Rosemount Hotel alone, we’re talking up to 40 adults across 8 suites, and up to 20 children’s cots and 8 kids on rollaway beds – that’s nearly 70 souls in one house.

Altneratively, you could take the over the historic church, part of Skene House Rosemount, where 74 adults could be comfortably accommodated across 37 suites.  Add in some cots, and some tots (aged under 12) on rollaway beds, and we’re certain we have space for you!


Room to be yourself, at Skene House

  • Can you Accommodate our Lovable, Moody Teenager who Values their own Space?
Whatever the scenario we’ll communicate to find the right suite for you – we actually prefer if guests pick up the phone and tell us exactly what they want. We don’t believe one size fits all, so we’ll make your stay as individual as you are. A couple with a teenager may veer towards our contemporary duplex at Skene House Rosemount. With a double mezzanine bedroom, then a single bedroom downstairs, it’s ideal for a family with a privacy-seeking teen. They can hang out in their own bedroom, then join you in the living room for family time.

Welcoming wee ones, at Skene House

  • We’re Travelling with Triplets, we’re Anxious about Waking other Guests and Worry you won’t have the Kit we Need!
At Skene House Rosemount we offer a “wee cottage”.  A separate two bedroom property with a large sitting room and dining kitchen, ideal for a large family that desires a truly independent vibe in the heart of the city. It’s hosted the likes of Sandi Toksvig and Greg Hemphill during stays in the Granite City.
In terms of kit, just shout and we’ll easily provide three high chairs, three cots, a changing mat, and a carton of milk in the fridge for cereal and drinks. We’d love to welcome your children to Skene House.
  • Could our little one, aged 5, sleep on a sofa bed, rather than pay extra for an additional room?
Yes, book a one bedroom apartment and we’ll happily accommodate the wee one in a rollaway bed in the sitting room. This scenario would suit any parent with a child aged under 12.

Savour your own space, your own bedroom at Skene House.

  • How flexible is Skene House for a group of four adults friends, who perhaps don’t mind sharing rooms, but don’t wish to share beds?  
Let’s see, we can work out this configuration no bother with a mix of twin rooms and master bedrooms. The most economical option would be a two bedroom suite accommodating four adults in their own individual beds. From modern, contemporary duplexes and stylish designer suites, to homely apartments and handsome decor, we could host your group in many different ways. The main thing is you’re together.
Well, we hope we’ve dazzled you with fun flexibility and a warm welcome. But however large, small, close or private your family and friends are, we can find the right vibe for you, at Skene House.

Enjoy a multi-generational stay at Skene House. A three bedroom HotelSuite with grandparents in one room, parents in another and tots in their own bedroom.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
