I stayed at the guesthouse for 2 nights on 2 consecutive weeks after being recommended by a current guest. Both weeks were fantastic and quite honestly made the trip. Fantastic service, nothing is too much trouble and made to feel very welcome due to the very personal approach to welcoming and looking after the guests staying. Every room is immaculate... More

Hard to find much to fault. Proprietors Stuart and Brenda were friendly, welcoming and genuinely wanted to ensure you enjoyed your stay. The single room on the second floor was spotlessly clean and very well appointed. All communal areas were of a high standard. All fittings, furnishings and features are good quality. Without doubt the cleanest and best presented B&B... More

Lovely and cosy old building close to city centre with a vert high attention to detail. Landlords are very friendly and have this business of theirs at heart, thus great service.Will definitely stay there again. Money well spent.

I stayed for 4 night at the Allan Guest House. I highly recommend this guest house. The welcome after a long trip from the middle-east was absolutely amazing. I was met by the owners and shown my room, which was not only super clean, but was thoughtfully presented in neutral colours to feel like a room in a private home.... More

This is the Rolls-Royce of guest houses. Wonderful rooms but, above all, friendly and helpful owners. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Would not go anywhere else. Access to the city centre is easy and quick by car, bus or on foot. Eddie Ross

Stayed at the Allan for 4 nights as I was doing a course in Altens. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend to others. From the moment I arrived I was given a very warm welcome by the owners. I was helped to my en-suite room with my bags and shown around the room. My room was very... More

I am a frequent guest here, and like this, everything becomes a habit, but if I try to compare this guest house with all of the other guest houses or hotels I visit on my trip round Europe, this is quite unique in the sense of creating a feeling of belonging, and the constant improvement of both exterior and interior...

An extremely friendly and welcoming arrival to the Allan guest house is only the start of an exceptional Guest house property in the heart of Aberdeen. Brenda and Stuart will go out there way to welcome you and show you to your room which are all very modern, extremely clean and very very comfortable along with the rest of the... More

Fabulous stay at The Allan! Rooms immaculate and decorated beautifully. Owners really friendly and helpful. The guesthouse (which feels more like a boutique hotel) is close to city centre with good transport links. We'll be back!
