The guest house is very charming - you feel like a local in it. It is also very clean and comfortable. The owners are very attending and helpful and they take care of the breakfast, just as you want it, greet you and talk to you. An overall positive experience.

The Jay's were very friendly and the private parking was a plus. I was a little disconcerted to have to make a decision regarding the time I wanted breakfast right at registration, but the food was excellent and the Jay's were very helpful regarding things to see and do in Aberdeen. Would definitely stay there again.

Great room and great hosts. Very convenient to city center and the AECC. Was able to walk to both, which was important to me. Great suggestions for our visit including a driving tour of the castles, highlands and the rivers Dee and Don. Clued us in to a great walk on the promenade as well. Would stay there again.

I stayed here on a business trip for two nights. Alice and George went out of their way to make my colleagues and I feel at home. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed and everything works as it should. And a great breakfast!
