A clean, warm, quiet guesthouse, with welcoming staff. If not driving a cab is recommended to get here, but it's still in easy reach of the city centre. Lydie, the owner, makes you feel at home, all good!

My boyfriend and I have just returned from our stay at Albyn Townhouse and it was perfect. Lydie greeted us with such warmth and enthusiasm we felt at home immediately. The room was gorgeous, we stayed in room 3 and it was huge, beautifully decorated and so cosy. The shower in the bathroom was great and everything was so clean.... More

We stayed in the townhouse just one night - but if we had known the place is so amazing, we would definitely stay longer. The French lady - the owner of the place - is a very charming and hospitable woman and she did her best to welcome us and share tips about Scotland. The house itself is a masterpiece... More

There are not enough words to say thank you to Lydie, David and their staff for making last weekend one of the most memorable of our lives. They graciously allowed us to book out their whole B&B for our wedding, and we are so thankful they did. It was like staying in a five star hotel: beautiful rooms, fantastic breakfasts,... More

We stayed at the Albyn for 2 nights and couldn't have asked for more. We had booked all of the rooms for a family wedding. David and Lydie are very good hosts and went the extra mile for our special occasion by adding personal touches. Lydie handmade heart shaped shortbread biscuits with the bride and groom initials and left one... More

This review is a long time coming as we stayed in April of 2015. But I guess better late than never. I've written a glowing review of the B&B before when we stayed in April of 2014, and this last stay was no different. The hotel is decorated with a bit of both luxury and quirk, and has the kind...

Albyn Townhouse is a lovely b&b! It is in a good location with only a 15/20 minute walk to the centre, not bad at all as you can take the scenic route through the park. Taxi rides to the centre generally cost around £6. The hotel itself is immaculate, the decor is to a high standard, a mix of traditional... More

We had a fabulous stay at Albyn Townhouse! A perfect, quaint little B&B just on the outskirts of the city center. Very nice retreat from the usual hotel experience. Our room was clean, cozy, and charming as was the rest of the B&B. Lydie, the owner and hostess, was just wonderful! She is very sweet and really adds to the... More
