Comfortable, clean and very welcoming. My single room was good-sized and had an armchair and desk which was a useful extra. The owners were very engaging and helpful with local information and places to visit. Thoroughly recommended.

Having never stayed in a guest house before, normally staying in hotels, I was a bit nervous about being in somebodies "home". With the average price of a cheap hotel being £160 a night, I decided to give The Jays a go. What a great decision, George and Alice are lovely people, making you feel at home from the moment you walk through the door. My room was well equipped and absolutely spotless while the breakfast was great. A short 15 minute walk and you're in the heart of Aberdeen. Will definitely stay here the next time I'm in Aberdeen.

A warm Scottish welcome awaited us on our arrival after a long train journey from London. The owners, George and Alice, are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with tips or information – as well as interesting chats at breakfast time! My room was cosy, comfortable and very clean, and the wi-fi worked well. The breakfasts were excellent (the kippers that I had one morning were delicious!).
A great base to explore Aberdeen and other sights nearby, such as Crathes Castle and gardens, and Stonehaven with its picturesque harbour and Dunnottar Castle, stunningly located atop a cliff with incomparable views over the harbour and sea.
A most enjoyable stay.

The guest house is in a quiet location, very convenient for the university. My room was very comfortable and well equipped, with good en suite facilities, and the wifi worked well. The owners made me feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend.

Hi Kate

Thank you for your review and Alice and I are pleased that you enjoyed your short stay with us.
I understand that you were unable to rate The Jays for value, as your bill was settled by Aberdeen University. However we are glad that the other ratings criteria, were to your satisfaction.

Kind regards,

Alice and George.
