I had a wonderful time at The Jays Guest House and would wholeheartedly recommend it. Great location, nice rooms, but most important of all, Alice and George were warm and welcoming, breakfast was delicious and I slept well. Thank you for a lovely time!

Great location. Close to university which was great as my time was short. I was leaving my son at the halls of residence . Staff made me feel very welcome and pointed me in right direction for taking in some of the sights and the beautiful beach.

Great place. Perfect for visits at the university. Sandy beach not far away. Very friendly hosts. Home-made Scottish breakfast. Situated in walking distance from Old Aberdeen and not too far away from the city center.

The guest house is very charming - you feel like a local in it. It is also very clean and comfortable. The owners are very attending and helpful and they take care of the breakfast, just as you want it, greet you and talk to you. An overall positive experience.

The Jay's were very friendly and the private parking was a plus. I was a little disconcerted to have to make a decision regarding the time I wanted breakfast right at registration, but the food was excellent and the Jay's were very helpful regarding things to see and do in Aberdeen. Would definitely stay there again.

Great room and great hosts. Very convenient to city center and the AECC. Was able to walk to both, which was important to me. Great suggestions for our visit including a driving tour of the castles, highlands and the rivers Dee and Don. Clued us in to a great walk on the promenade as well. Would stay there again.
