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!

I cannot praise Allan Guesthouse highly enough. The rooms are absolutely immaculate, wifi is fast and free, the breakfast is first class and the price is reasonable. Best of all, though, is the service. Nothing was too much trouble and Stuart and Brenda looked after my every need with genuine warmth, generosity and kindness. Thank you for making my stay... More

Really enjoyed my stay. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others, rooms are amazing and very well kept in tact. No complains what so ever. Beds are extremely comfortable and the food is really good.

From the moment we arrived we felt welcome with Stuart greeting us and assisting us with our luggage. We stayed here many years ago and could not believe the transformation Stuart and Brenda have made, it is quality throughout, and so light and airy. Everywhere was spotless, breakfast was excellent, and they take pride and pleasure in providing an outstanding... More

I have stayed here three times in the past few months and each time has been very pleasurable. I've found the rooms to be first class, cleanliness and comfort are superb as is the food and the friendliness of Stuart and Brenda who go the extra mile to make you feel at home. I would recommend this establishment to anyone... More
