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...

A warm Scottish welcome awaited us on our arrival after a long train journey from London. The owners, George and Alice, are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with tips or information – as well as interesting chats at breakfast time! My room was cosy, comfortable and very clean, and the wi-fi worked well. The breakfasts were excellent (the kippers that... More

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

Stayed in a single room which was spotless and well fitted. The desk was particularly much appreciated and often missing from single rooms. En-suite too. And free wi-fi. I could easily have parked on the street around the corner, but The Jays even has a small car park. Breakfast was fine (standard B&B style) and although it's necessary to book... More
