I want to be able to go off course

I want somewhere to put my feet up

I want to cook up a storm, day and night

I want big names on my doorstep

I want it wrapped and delivered

I want my feet up and my hair down

We want our own space

We want to play up

We want the room to breathe

For a packed short break, or family celebration, unpack here.

You're never short of things to do on a short break in Aberdeen City & Shire.  It's an area steeped in history where castles dot the landscape and perch on cliffs. And you can build your own castle on mile upon mile of sandy beaches.

Walk through spectacular scenery, or golf in it. And at the beating heart of it all is Aberdeen where you're never more than a stone's throw from galleries, theatres, cool bars, restaurants, clubs and shops.

Right in the city centre are our two Skene House HotelSuites.  1, 2 & 3 bedroom suites, flexible enough to fit everyone in, with hotel staff who'll bend over backwards to help you plan everything perfectly. 

If the reason for your trip is a special occasion, then a larger suite, with its separate living room and kitchen, is an ideal place for intimate gatherings for family and close friends, and our function rooms an ideal "stage" on which to set the scene for a memorable event for up to 100.  For larger events we can offer group discounts for a booking of 10 suites or more.

We'd love to chat with you about how Skene House can help you plan anything from a romantic getaway for two to a party for 100.

More golf courses than you can shake an eight iron at

In Aberdeen City & Shire you can play a links course one day, a heathland course the next, with a parkland course for the third day. And forty of them are within forty minutes drive of our Skene House Hotels.

Boys’ Weekend?  Sorted

Plan a boys’ weekend with that extra flexibility. Our HotelSuites have all you need for the ideal Aberdeen base on your boys’ weekend, whether indulging in some golf or soaking up the city’s action-packed nightlife.

The best place for a weekend, or night in, with the “besties”

Plan your special weekend away, or night in, with the girls in Aberdeen. Our HotelSuites combine the comfort and convenience of a 1, 2 or 3 bedroom suite with separate living room and kitchen.  Plus our hotel team will be on hand to organise any activities to enjoy "in suite" or out on the town.

Treat your “suiteheart” to a romantic getaway

Whisk that special someone off their feet with a romantic break. Retreat to your very own private hotel apartment equipped with all you need for cosy nights in. Alternatively, treat it as your own city central base while exploring Aberdeen together.
