If you want to get cosy and loved up, then Skene House is an indulgent home from home. Not just a perfunctory hotel room, but a spacious living room, fully furnished kitchen and separate bedroom. Let’s face it, an apartment or suite is far more romantic than a bed in a room. Chill the bubbles in the fridge before heading out for a romantic meal, get ready for date night as your other half chills in the living room (a little privacy can be appreciated). Or stay in, and prepare dinner à deux in your own Skene House kitchen.
And, if you’re really cosy, then this offer can also include a late weekend check-out available – just ask at reception.
Date Destinations – Here’s a few suggestions to set the right mood. For intimate surroundings and excellent Turkish cuisine book at table at Nargile, mere metres from Skene House Rosemount. Find harmony at Harmony restaurant on Justice Mill Lane, a minute’s walk from Skene House Holburn. Reserve seating at Grape & Grain on Thistle Street for wine, gin and craft beers in smart surroundings where you can hear yourself think. Walk hand in hand along Aberdeen beach – sweeping white sands, cute cafés, hot chocolate and ice cream galore.
Art lovers can also make the most of the Skene House offer. The newly opened and refurbished Aberdeen Art Gallery is a joy, and it’s open seven days a week. Discover Alison Watt, Joan Eardley, Joyce Cairns and Martin Parr on Schoolhill, just over a five minute walk from Skene House Rosemount.
Alternatively, get out and about on a crisp winter’s day for a self-guided Nuart Street Tour.

Aberdeen takes its food seriously, and with a larder rich in fantastic seafood, game, cereals and fruit, this city is in a prime location to offer it all.
Vegans can drop by Bonobo, meat lovers call into Vovem or Miller and Carter, consider the Silver Darling or The Pier for views out to sea, it’s got to be Almondine for macarons, The Grill for a traditional whisky bar, craft beers options are multiple (click here), make it the Cult of Coffee for a caffeine fix, and Cup for the cutest Afternoon Tea. Room for a wafer thin mint anyone?
