As anyone who knows Aberdeen will appreciate, rooms are at a premium. I felt this was a little over priced £75 for a small single room bed and breakfast for one night. Anywhere else I would have expected to pay £40 to £50. On the plus side the room was very warm, extremely clean and the folk were very welcoming,... More

Hi Eileen Thank you for taking time to post a review and let me address some of your points. I do not understand your point regarding the tariff - but I deduce that like a lot of visitors to Aberdeen, you are not happy with the cost of accommodation in our prosperous city. I can assure you that we are... More

I spent 2 nights here while on a workshop and initially turned to guest houses because hotels were either booked or too expensive - and am really glad about having made this choice. Location was ideal as I had to be at the university library (a nice 15 minute walk), rooms are cosy, wifi connection was perfect, the bed was... More

Typical Aberdeen b&b and a good place to stay with decent parking..... advertised as en-suite but they are not but you do have individual bathrooms but not connected to your room they are totally separate.... breakfast was good and decent sausages not like some places that use cheap stuff.......

Hi Thanks for taking time to post a review, but a more accurate one would have been helpful. Your statement - 'advertised as en-suite but they are not.' - is totally inaccurate. If you view our web site you will see that we advertise that we have 10 rooms - 8 of which are EN-SUITE and 2 that have private... More

Hi Chris Thank you for your positive review and we are glad that you enjoyed the varied breakfasts. We endeavour to give our guests a taste of the local cuisine, which of course being Aberdeen, has to include fish. Hope to see you again soon. Regards, George and Alice. More

Comfortable, clean and very welcoming. My single room was good-sized and had an armchair and desk which was a useful extra. The owners were very engaging and helpful with local information and places to visit. Thoroughly recommended.

Having never stayed in a guest house before, normally staying in hotels, I was a bit nervous about being in somebodies "home". With the average price of a cheap hotel being £160 a night, I decided to give The Jays a go. What a great decision, George and Alice are lovely people, making you feel at home from the moment...

The guest house is in a quiet location, very convenient for the university. My room was very comfortable and well equipped, with good en suite facilities, and the wifi worked well. The owners made me feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend.

Hi Kate Thank you for your review and Alice and I are pleased that you enjoyed your short stay with us. I understand that you were unable to rate The Jays for value, as your bill was settled by Aberdeen University. However we are glad that the other ratings criteria, were to your satisfaction. Kind regards, Alice and George. More
