“Feels like home...”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Over the last six months, I have been a regular guest in this excellent guest house in Aberdeen, and I am getting more and more impressed with the dedication and tidyness the owners, Brenda and Stuart, are showing every day.
Nothing is too smal to improve, and they are constantly monitoring the well being of their eight guests staying in the house. The breakfast is very nice, and is served whenever the guesst wants it, making every day flexible.
This guest house comes highly recommendable for everyone who is in need of a nice and extremely clean accomodation in the granite city.

Hosts Brenda and Stewart work ever so hard to keep their guesthouse in perfect condition. My room was very neat and tidy, and so was the rest of the guesthouse. Bathroom was pretty big and in perfect condition. Bed was also very comfortable - I slept like a baby :) I especialy liked having a possibility to have a flexible breakfast - meaning flexible breakfast schedule, and also the type of breakfast (traditional, strong scottish breakfast with eggs, bacon etc., or just having light cornflakes). The food was also very tasty. I give the highest rate to my hosts who were both very thoughtfull and caring, and I thank them once againg for all the thoughtfull things they did for me. I was realy moved especialy my last day of staying in their guest house. My wife and me are considering to go on a scottish castle tour, and Allan Guest House will be our number one choice for staying while sightseeing Aberdeenshire :) Highly recomended!

Stayed at the Allan Guest House for a week, was made to feel very welcome by Brenda & Stuart, nothing was too much trouble for them. I had Room 8 which was like staying in the Honeymoon Suite of an upmarket hotel, fantastic big room with a luxurious bed, big en suite with a walk in shower. They were very accommodating with a Breakfast Tray in my room as I had a very early start in the morning. Couldn't ask for more from the owners, they were fantastic, will definitely stay again on my return to Aberdeen.

Room Tip: If you want luxury, ask for Room 8

Stayed here for 2 weeks as I was working in Aberdeen. I have spent a lot of time in Aberdeen this year and have stayed in lots of different hotels of varying "luxury" ratings. This is by far the best place I have stayed yet. Stuart and Brenda are 2 of the nicest people I have ever met and work so hard to make sure everything is perfect. The rooms are clean and well equipped so is the rest of the guesthouse. Thank you so much for a fantastic stay. P.s..... Brenda's ginger cake is legendary!!! :-)

I stayed here for a week after jumping from place to place, the owners (Stuart and Brenda) run the place and treat you like their favourite guest of all time.

Even the worst room is great and the biggest is fantastic. Room prices don't get bumped up for the weekday rush. Rooms are always very clean, food is great, company is great, what more could you want.

Location is in a really nice area with a huge park at the end of the street.

No one will regret coming here.

Having been around the world, this is the best accommodation I've ever experienced! Stuart and Brenda are the nicest people you could imagine and I've never been treated so kind anywhere else! If I ever go back to Aberdeen, it is not a question where I'll be staying if only they have room for me :)
