A perfect place to stay when visiting the university. Cosy house with atmosphere instead of the anonymous hotels one finds ofthen these days. The beach is reachable by foot, good connections to the new city center

Stayed 1 night here in November, easy enough to find, the carpark is tiny, not enough spaces for the number of rooms, so i parked on the road in the side street, as i was leaving early in the morning and didnt want to find myself parked in. This is fine, but there are parking restrictions so you need to...

Dear Martin Housden It was good of you to take the time to provide a review, but I just wish that you had been more accurate in your opinions. I disagree that our car park is 'tiny', as it has room for 8 vehicles, based on our guests parking intelligently. I doubt there is a guest house in the centre...

I stayed at The Jays for one night as I was in business in the area. The Guest House is spotlessly clean, very comfortable and homely, and the breakfast is fabulous. I arrived earlier than I thought and asked to have access to my room so I could do some paperwork, and this was no problem. George and Alice are...

The Jay's Guest House is my preferred place to stay when I travel to Aberdeen on business. On the occasions I've stayed, it has been in either rooms 6 or 7 which are singles with en-suite to the rear of the property and they are very quiet. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and Alice is a lovely lady...

This is a good B&B with about 10 rooms, spotlessly clean, with lots of homely touches and hosts Alice and George who are welcoming and relaxed. Breakfasts are additional to the room cost and, at the time of our stay, were £10 each. It was our choice to have them, which put the per night stay up to £100. Neatly-presented...

I thorough lived stay at the Jays, Alice and George made me feel at home and as if nothing was a bother for them. When I asked if there was an iron I could use, they promptly brought it to the room for me with no hesitation. What a great, comfy, relaxing and friendly place to stay. Highly recommended!

We had a nice experience in Aberdeen. The B&B was located near the center, in a pretty house. Rooms were clean and comfortable, not very large but quiet. We have been very happy with our choice and recommend this nice B & B. People were very helpful with our requests.
