The First Hotel in Scotland to be Certified Female Friendly!

We are pleased to announce that we are now listed on Maiden-Voyage.com, a free social network for female business travellers. Maiden Voyage is a multinational social platform which connects women who frequently travel on business and has a current membership of over 2000 women from all over the world.


Skene House Holburn and Whitehall have been carefully selected as offering female friendly accommodation. We are the first and only Scottish accommodation provider to be listed on Maiden Voyage.com.

The social network allows its members to network with fellow travellers, to recommend products and services and exchange safety and travel information, as well as find members who are in the same city to socialise and network with. Members can also access a directory of individually vetted accommodation deemed to be female friendly, with 22 hotels currently on the list, 15 of which are in the UK. 

Since the early 1990s we have offered female travellers a better alternative to hotels as our style of accommodation addresses many of the concerns females have when travelling on their own. For instance our suites’ fully equipped kitchens means that guests can cater for themselves or order in, which for female travellers makes for a far more relaxing evening compared with dining solo in a bar or restaurant. By working with Maiden Voyage, we have further enhanced our female friendly offering to increase security and comfort and we look forward to welcoming their members.

Carolyn Pearson, Founder of Maiden Voyage said: “It was particularly important for me to find genuinely good female friendly accommodation in Aberdeen. With the oil industry largely male dominated, it can be particularly daunting for a woman travelling alone to find herself in a hotel predominantly occupied by men so I was delighted to receive a recommendation for Skene House HotelSuites from a fellow business-travel executive….The team at Skene House HotelSuites have a natural affinity with female business travellers and their needs so we are delighted to recommend them to our global members.”
