We have stayed at the Arkaig many times now and thought it about time we left a review. Our recent three day midweek stay was great and went without a hitch, our Hosts Charlie and Evelyn were as attentive and welcoming as they have been on all previous visits. Evelyn's breakfasts are top notch. Our double room was very clean... More

Solid 3 star. Aberdeen is expensive and short on quality B&Bs. Arkaig is pleasant and quite well situated between the University and the City centre with plenty of CCTV supervised on-street parking (it's a converted sidewalk they own, free). Very nice hosts who serve up a good breakfast. Rooms are functional rather than pretty: clean, well insulated and the heating... More

I had a very comfortable stay at this guest house. The room was spotless, breakfast was great and a good selection on offer. Evelyn and Charlie the owners were very welcoming I felt at home! I would highly recommend this b+b.

I hadn't realised the inflated hotel prices in Aberdeen when I quoted an all-inclusive rate for some work, so finding the Arkaig enabled me to earn something, and perform my work ona good night's sleep. My room was at the back on the ground floor. It was small with limited natural light, but with everything I needed, and a considerably... More

I recently put my mum and my gran up here during a visit to Aberdeen. Having turned up late to check in I was very happy to be greeted by the understanding owner who was more than happy to fit our needs. They were happy with their rooms, their bathrooms and their cooked breakfast in the morning. Their only complaint... More

Lovely couple. They try hard. Great breakfast. It is a dependable 3 star B&B. Friendly feel. Well insulated (so the busy street at the front is not a bother unless you are a very, very light sleeper). Warm but the heating comes on a bit late in the morning. Mattress has seen better days. Bathroom clean and works but a... More

This is a perfect Guest House to stay for business or pleasure. The Arkaig is well appointed and efficiently run. Breakfast is very enjoyable and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Ample parking is also a great help. Mr & Mrs Gibson Edinburgh

The couple that runs this bed and breakfast is super friendly and accommodating. They ensure that dietary needs are met for breakfasts and serve up delicious, cooked-to-order full Scottish breakfasts (eggs, meat or veggie sausage, hashbrown, beans, tomato, toast with jam, tea or coffee) and you can take what you want from the ample continental breakfast offerings. They are keen... More

The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The gave us directions to a nearby hike that was amazing. The room itself wasn’t anything fancy and the "living room" area felt much more like a doctors waiting office. It was about a 20 min walk into the main road of Aberdeen. They do have plenty of parking, which was very helpful.... More

We spent a week camping in the Highlands and stopped afterwards for two days in Aberdeen enjoying some comfortable beds and hospitality. We arrived by taking the bus from the central bus station. We had a really warm welcome and were shown to our room containing three single beds on the second floor. The beds were really comfy and the... More
