My Sister and I stayed here for 2 days in June 2012. Nice, comfortable rooms, food was excellent and the owners offered wonderful, personal service. The guest house is located a convenient 15 minutes from the town centre and the guest house has a private car park. We absolutely loved our stay here and would definitely stay here again!

In Aberdeen a cute and relatively small town this guest house has been available for 30 years - yet you wouldn't realise that from the owners who continue to give an excellent and personal service. Located a fifteen minute walk from the town centre, and near the beach, public transport is also just outside the door. The owners remember everyone's... More

Stayed here a couple of months ago and booked at the last minute, and the hosts could not have been friendlier. There is plenty of car parking space at the back of the property as the guest house is on a fairly busy thoroughfare in and our of Aberdeen.

Hi Thank you for your frank and honest review. However there are two points that I would like to make. Firstly, only rooms 1 and 2 face the main road, while room 3 window, faces the rear of the guest house. Secondly, rest assured that rooms 1 and 2 EACH have their own private facilities, without sharing of any kind.... More
