I have stayed at the Jays Guest House two times over the past two years. The rooms are clean and tidy, the breakfasts are outstanding but what makes it truly special are the owners, the Jennings, who make you feel that you are truly at home.

Location was excellent-close to the centre and old Aberdeen. the room was clean and comfortable. Geoge and Alice are very friendly people. The typical Scottish Breakfast was excellent. The breakfast room is rather small but Alice keeps it well organized!
