By the mid-eighties, Skene House Rosemount was clearly the flagship location for Skene House. Its city centre location and proximity to all of Aberdeen's key leisure attractions, and within easy access of the train station and roads from the south and to the north made it ideal for business guests.
After operating Skene House Rosemount as a HotelSuites’ development since the early 1980s, which included properties that now comprise Skene House Whitehall, Charles decided to consolidate and develop more of his property portfolio.
The mid-eighties to late nineties was a period of great change. He sold the original Torry properties and developed front- and back-of-house facilities at Skene House Whitehall so that it could become another standalone Skene House development.
