Thank you so much, Alice and George, for welcoming me so warmly to the Jays Guest House. I sincerely appreciated your hospitality, our discussions, your recommendations (my walk on the Esplanade was wonderful as was Footdee!), and your sincere interest in my progress at the nearby Research Center. Thanks also for accommodating my desire to try the different breakfast options... 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

Very nice place, close to Kings College and not so far from the city centre. Very nice that you have the choice for breakfast. Rooms cozy, a little small, but enough. The walls are a bit thin, could hear the neighbour's bathroom ventilation every night.

Hi Christian Thank you for your review. Let me assure you that the walls, to which you refer, are constructed to the building regulations and standards, with the requisite insulation. Had you informed me of the ventilation fan situation, I could have mentioned it to the relevant guest and the problem could have been addressed. The ventilation fans are vapour... More

Everything was perfect - service, cleanliness, quiteness,... The guest house is very close to the University of Aberdeen, so it is the perfect location to stay if you visit the University. The staff is very kind and the atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed. If I have to visit Aberdeen again, I will go there again!
