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!

It was our fourth time at The Jays, and hope to be there every time we are in Aberdeen. There is nothing but good things to say: 5 star hosts (Alice and George are so nice and friendly you feel like being home), very well run B’N’B, clean room, and superb breakfast. 100% recommendable!

I work in Aberdeen reglarly throughout the year and have stayed in several hotels and B+B's in and out of the city. Jays is definitely the best I have tried, very comfortable, best value for money, spotlessly clean and great hospitality from Alice and George. Excellent wi-fi connection also.
