“A great B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

Stayed in a single room which was spotless and well fitted. The desk was particularly much appreciated and often missing from single rooms. En-suite too. And free wi-fi. I could easily have parked on the street around the corner, but The Jays even has a small car park.

Breakfast was fine (standard B&B style) and although it's necessary to book your time so all guests breakfasts can be fitted in, I got the time I wanted and was also offered a cheaper room rate if I didn't want to take the breakfast. Very friendly owners too.

The only down was that the extractor fan from next door's bathroom was very loud when on. Oh, and that it is too popular, so it's hard to get booked in!

Room Tip: I was at the back so there was no street noise at all.

The Jays is a great place to stay, a warm welcome at the door from George and Alice, spotless rooms and good food, it has a real family feel, Home from Home!

I stay at the Jays every time I'm in Aberdeen, the location is easy to get to and it's only a short walk into the city or to the sea front.

Very nice place, close to Kings College and not so far from the city centre. Very nice that you have the choice for breakfast. Rooms cozy, a little small, but enough. The walls are a bit thin, could hear the neighbour's bathroom ventilation every night.

Hi Christian
Thank you for your review. Let me assure you that the walls, to which you refer, are constructed to the building regulations and standards, with the requisite insulation. Had you informed me of the ventilation fan situation, I could have mentioned it to the relevant guest and the problem could have been addressed. The ventilation fans are vapour sensitive and will switch off when the en suite is free of moisture. However should a guest inadvertently leave the bathroom light switched on, then the fan will continue to operate. May I suggest, if in the future you deem something to be less that satisfactory, that you bring it to the attention of the person responsible, so that immediate redial action can be taken.

Regards,

George and Alice.

I stayed at the Jays guest house for 3 weeks and found it to be perfect. The en-suite rooms in which i stayed where imaculate and cleaned to a very high standard every day. Alice and George are the most welcoming and friendly couple you could hope to meet. I would highly recomend anyone to stay here as it is a 10 minute walk to the city centre and ideal if its buisness or just a weekend break that you require in Aberdeen.

I stayed at the Jays Guest House in early December 2013. My en-suite room was in impeccable condition. It was comfortable, clean, tastefully decorated and a great place to rest my head during a frantic trip.

The owners of the guest house, George and Alice, were so welcoming and friendly, I will be staying with them again in January during my next trip to Aberdeen.

If you are looking for an excellent place to stay at reasonable prices, the Jays Guest House comes highly recommended!

Everything was perfect - service, cleanliness, quiteness,...
The guest house is very close to the University of Aberdeen, so it is the perfect location to stay if you visit the University. The staff is very kind and the atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed.
If I have to visit Aberdeen again, I will go there again!

I stayed at Alice and George's lovely B&B a few weeks ago for a buisness trip. It was excellent. On arrival Alice made me very welcome and feel at home. My room was spotless and warm. Breakfast in the morning was superb and cooked fresh. It was so good I've booked up again for my next buisness trip in few weeks. Look forward to staying there.
