book direct for the best rates and offers, guaranteed

Skene House is the opposite of a one-size-fits-all approach.  We pride ourselves on our ability to tailor the best accommodation solution for a overnight visit to Aberdeen for business or leisure, whatever the duration. 

As our guest, our goal is for you to have a wonderful experience through personalised customer service.  When you book direct, in person, by calling or emailing or through our website, your experience of Skene House begins before you check-in because it allows our dedicated reservations team to allocate the best suite to suit your needs.

By booking direct you will also have access to our best and our lowest rates and offers, that we guarantee cannot be matched or beaten elsewhere.

We have two types of rates for Skene House:

  • Best Available, Accommodation Only and Cooked Breakfast Inclusive options, and
  • Advance Purchase, Accommodation Only

And we also have offers and promotions running throughout the year.

If, in the unlikely event that you find a better, publicly available, qualifying rate for a directly comparable stay (see terms and conditions for Best Rate Guarantee) within 24 hours of making your reservation, we’ll match the lower rate and discount it further by 10%.

At Skene House the longer you stay the less you pay – it’s been this way for the 4 decades, our 40 year anniversary is in 2019.  This offer, available exclusively through Skene House direct, is ideal for business and leisure guests who want exceptional value for money.

Save 10%, 15% or 20%, off our best available accommodation only rate, for stays of 2, 3 and 4 nights respectively.
