Romantic Weekend Staycation: The Skene House Apartments in Rosemount Area

Skene House Apartments Aberdeen

A weekend staycation at the Skene House Apartments Aberdeen! Aberdeen has loads of places to stay but when you can get an apartment for the price of a hotel room then not! Today I am taking you through a tour around the Skene House Apartments in Aberdeen, and more specifically the ones in Rosemount, Aberdeen.

When: September, 2016
Where: Skene House Apartments, Rosemount, Aberdeen

Every Thursday I start planning for the weekend, I am that kind of person. The person who stopped working during the weekends and decided to enjoy every single bit of them, forgetting that Monday is just over the corner. However, when time is tight (which happens quite often), my weekend planning focuses around the city, preferably no more than an hour driving. Dundee I hear you say, but this time we went somewhere even closer, just a ten minutes drive from our place, yes you read this right, ten minutes!
With a tireless and enthusiastic puppy that constantly needs our attention in the house, we felt like escaping reality for a while and focusing on ourselves. Short, weekend getaways before the new (academic) season kicks in are such a treat and this mini staycation was just what we needed!Skene House Apartments Aberdeen

With a bag full of night essentials and my camera equipment on hand we headed to the Skene House Apartments in the beautiful area of Rosemount. These apartments are God’s gift for a couple or a family who wants to have fun in Aberdeen but doesn’t want to spend a large amount of money on accommodation. Even though it feels like it should cost more than a hotel, in reality it is even cheaper and you can actually save money from takeaways or dining outside by cooking in the apartment’s kitchen. Who needs a taxi back to Aberdeenshire after a night out when you can have an entire apartment to yourself for such affordable prices?Skene House Apartments Aberdeen

We stayed in one of the Scandinavian style apartments where the bedroom and bathroom are on the top floor while the kitchen and a very spacious living room (including dining area) are downstairs.Skene House Apartments Aberdeen

Our bed was as comfortable as it can get and sent me off for a dream-filled sleep the moment I lied down on it.

The bedroom window was facing the city centre and I could spot His Majesty’s Theatre and the central library at the background…

The next morning we woke up relaxed and after showering we headed downstairs in the dining area for breakfast, which knocked our shocks off.  There was a great selection of pastries and freshly baked croissants, I had Belgium waffles with Bonne Maman strawberry jam on top (I love these miniature ones), and Steven had yogurt and fruit with his coffee. He is the healthy eating one…

After our lovely breakfast, we headed back to our room, packed our bags and said goodbyes to the welcoming Skene House team. This was the shortest but sweetest staycation in my life, thanks for having us!Skene House Apartments Aberdeen

We were offered a night’s stay at the Skene House Apartments but all views expressed are as always mine.
