Centre of Aberdeen?

A room each?

Parking required?

Do they have a specific reason for wanting/needing to stay in Aberdeen? If not I suggest they look outside the city. Aberdeen is the oil capital of Europe and as a result accommodation can often be difficult and /or expensive to get during the week, but so bad at weekends. If they are touring on holiday, they might be better looking at areas such as Grantown on Spey, or Royal Deeside.

What are they planning to do while there?

And are you saying Aberdeen generically? Aberdeenshire?

If visiting Aberdeenshire and tourist spots like the many castles, we just finished our trip and stayed in Ballater (appx 40m west of Aberdeen). I can't recommend the Gorden Guest House more highly! Absolutely the best value for the money at around 75GBP.

Banchory is another option, as maybe Alford - seems we drove back and forth through there 3 or 4 times.

No lack of B&Bs all around!

Not knowing your budget it is hard to be sure, but I'd recommend the Ferryhill House Hotel - www.ferryhillhousehotel.co.uk/ it is a really nice family run place, with good food and also reasonably central.
