I am amazed with this guest house. It's on the George road, a 15 mins walk from the centre. Both sides of the street lots of eateries and other shops. I went for a training in the North East Scotland College which is also 10 mins pleasure walk from Arkaig .If you have more than one big piece of luggage... More

I stayed in Arkaig with a couple of friends over the weekend. Despite being next to a main road we found the house to be quiet and peaceful so we had no trouble sleeping. Our rooms and the place in general was very clean. The location was perfect for us as it's just a stone's throw away from the university... More

Arkaig is situated very conveniently with a bus stop to the airport right at their doorstep, making it an ideal accomodation to explore Aberdeen from. It is close to both the university and city centre, with cosy rooms to spend the night and excellent service that catered to our every need.

I've been a guest at Arkaig Guest House Aberdeen for 5 nights in November, on the occasion of the graduation ceremony of my daughter. I liked everything there: the impeccably clean and comfortable front room which had a nice view and also kept me connected to the life of the city, the delicious breakfast, the position within the city, and...

Went there with two friends as we required a room with three single beds. This room was at the front of the guest house. It was warm and comfortable although the ensuite was small, but, with the window open for necessary ventilation, the traffic noise was very loud and continued all night. Hosts were excellent and there was a nice... More

We have stayed at the Arkaig many times now and thought it about time we left a review. Our recent three day midweek stay was great and went without a hitch, our Hosts Charlie and Evelyn were as attentive and welcoming as they have been on all previous visits. Evelyn's breakfasts are top notch. Our double room was very clean... More

Solid 3 star. Aberdeen is expensive and short on quality B&Bs. Arkaig is pleasant and quite well situated between the University and the City centre with plenty of CCTV supervised on-street parking (it's a converted sidewalk they own, free). Very nice hosts who serve up a good breakfast. Rooms are functional rather than pretty: clean, well insulated and the heating... More

I hadn't realised the inflated hotel prices in Aberdeen when I quoted an all-inclusive rate for some work, so finding the Arkaig enabled me to earn something, and perform my work ona good night's sleep. My room was at the back on the ground floor. It was small with limited natural light, but with everything I needed, and a considerably... More

I recently put my mum and my gran up here during a visit to Aberdeen. Having turned up late to check in I was very happy to be greeted by the understanding owner who was more than happy to fit our needs. They were happy with their rooms, their bathrooms and their cooked breakfast in the morning. Their only complaint... More
