Lovely rooms, lovely hosts : the best Scottish guest house I've stayed in. You should expect more than the price announces. Definitely recommend. Should I add that the area is very calm and nice (Duthie Park) ?

My colleague and I have stayed in many guest houses whilst travelling for business and this is the best one we have stayed in. The whole place was immaculate and extremely comfortable, just what we needed after a long day of travelling. Our host even dropped us off and picked us up from a nearby restaurant for our evening meal,...

This is an excellent Guest House, superior to some of the local Hotels. I would recommend it for hospitality, comfort and beautiful surroundings. The hosts Brenda and Stuart are very friendly and will provide any advice and support you require during your visit.

We, a couple, stayed for one night in the Allan Guest House. This big, beautiful house is located in a quiet residental area with ample free on-street parking. It has recently been tastefully renovated and is spotlessly clean. The rooms are large and well furnished with very comfortable beds. The breakfast is delicious and last, but certainly not least, the...

We stayed three nights as a family of two adults and two (older) children this week. Brenda and Stuart were extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Our rooms were ideal: Room 8 was very spacious, beautifully appointed and with a huge bathroom. Room 3, set up as a twin for our children, was very nicely decorated and had...

The house as a whole is very elegant and the bedrooms were spacious and extremely well furnished. The bathrooms were spotless and of a standard that complimented the bedrooms and the rest of the house. Brenda and Stuart were extremely welcoming and prepared a personal hearty and tasty breakfast, for each family member. The B&B is also very well located.

My daughter chose this Bed and Breakfast as it was near her new home and for the brilliant reviews. While both of these were true it exceeded our high expectations. Our room was very spacious and beautifully furnished, every comfort thought of. WiFi worked very well. Stuart and Brenda were excellent hosts and our breakfast made to suit each of...

I have worked in Aberdeen many times over the past 20 years. I have stayed in the full range of accommodation from bargain basement B&B's through to 4 star hotels. This B&B is, without doubt, the best accommodation I have had. It is superb on every level. First of all the location is fantastic Near the centre of town but...
