TravelPod Member ReviewsSkene House Rosemount Aberdeen
We had a wonderful visit and stay at the Skene House Rosemount. Our two story suite had plenty of space, very modern and clean. The upstairs bedroom and bath were so comfy. We also loved the convenience of being close to downtown, so walking was easy for getting around Aberdeen. the morning breakfast was also top notch.
