5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

I stayed at Aldersyde with my girlfriend for two days - from arrival to departure everything was just 5 star! We had lovely chats with our host John - just as friendly as one can possibly imagine (not exaggerating!) He gave us really nice tips for Aberdeen and also for our tour through scotland. He even told my gf how to get rid of her really bad cold! The interior of the House and the rooms is very stylish, really comfy beds (slept like a Baby!), really liked the carpet also - and of course all was very clean! So to sum it up: If you ever go to Aberdeen, choose Aldersyde, it was the perfect start for our scottish vacation - and since we stayed at various guesthouses and b&b all throughout Scotland I can say that John's is way over standard, also regarding the price!

My sister and I stayed two nights at the Aldersyde. John was a delightful host. Our room was very comfortable, spacious with a lovely little ensuite bathroom. We enjoyed breakfasts. We were located on the middle floor and it did get a bit noisy when the upstairs tenants came home, but that didn't last long. John was kind enough to drive us to the train station when we left. I would definitely stay her again.

Just got back from a three night stay at the Aldersyde.

Perfect picture on what a three star B&B should be. John is a gracious host who likes to talk to people, so if you want to be left alone and not chat stay somewhere else.

Good size room, nice bathroom (ensuite - though some rooms had private bathrooms in the hall), very clean and located in a quiet residential area.

Small hotel with restaurant and bar across the road, small shop just up the street, several play grounds in the area and just a few minutes walk to all what Aberdeen has to offer.

On street parking (free between 8pm and 8am), easy to find a spot. A small multi-story carpark at the IQ building just a few hundred yards away is also available.

Stayed twice in June whilst working away from home.

Very welcoming. First stay was in a tiny room on the top floor, just enough room for a single bed and a walk to the door. Uses a shared shower room and toilet, but was very clean. Although small, was comfortable and clean and suitable for what I needed.

Second stay was in a much more spacious double room, also on the top floor sharing the bathroom. Nice comfy bed, wardrobe if required.

Continental breakfast, but plenty of choice of cereal, pastries, fruit, etc.

In excellent location just a short walk from union street

Would stay here again

Booked a room with ensuite- and arrived to find the ensuite was actually outside and across the corridor- and not in my room. Gave breafast a miss, as the clingfilm covered meats & cheeses didnt look that appealing. Overall, would cosider using, if i was stuck.

The room, the breakfast and the place in Aberdeen is very good and when you add the way you are treated by the host this place is EXCELLENT.
