Media Release: Hat-trick of national awards for Skene House HotelSuites

ONE of the most established family-run hotels in Aberdeen has won a hat-trick of prestigious UK industry awards.

Skene House HotelSuites won the influential awards after being highly rated by their guest’s reviews on The awards are based on service and facilities, which are judged from 70,000 properties in the UK.

The news coincides with continued year-on-year growth for the successful entrepreneur, Mr. Charles P. Skene OBE, who regularly upgrades his suites, services and facilities to ensure the highest standards are met within all three properties.

Skene House HotelSuites offer more space and comfort than the average hotel room. Having a total of 189 HotelSuites, the company has created a unique niche to satisfy the needs of business and leisure travellers who want more value for money.

Awards were given to Skene House Rosemount for No.1 Family Friendly Hotel in the UK, Skene House Holburn won No.1 Apartments 2013 and Skene House Whitehall scored TripAdvisors Travellers’ Choice award for two years running, remaining in the latter’s Top 25 hotels in the UK.

Commenting on the recent successes, founder and chair of Skene House HotelSuites, Mr. Charles P. Skene OBE, said: “This recognition reflects the commitment of our staff who take real pride in providing exceptional service to our guests.

“I have long believed in the importance of tourism to the economy in Scotland as long ago as the early 1980s I was a member of the Scottish tourist board consultative committee and then of Grampian Tourism.

“Tourism can go on forever provided we have sufficient attractions and we, the Scottish people, know how to deal with tourists, the value of tourists to Scotland, and we serve their needs accordingly.”


Skene House HotelSuites offer a total of 189 HotelSuites accommodating 560 people every night across key Aberdeen locations.

The spacious, comfortable, serviced one, two and three-bed award- winning apartments are a popular alternative to normal hotel accommodation for business and leisure travelers with flexible options, ranging from one night or long-term family relocation.
