Big, quiet and very clean rooms. Large, tasty breakfasts. Superb location within a short walk of the city centre but outside the permit parking zone. Very friendly and helpful owners who can advise on where to visit.

Fantastic welcome by Brenda and Stuart to an immaculate and highly detailed guesthouse. The guesthouse is more welcoming than a 5 star hotel from the minute you walk through the door until the minute you leave. All areas of the house are immaculately tidy and decorated to a very modern and stylish finish, from the communal halls to the bedrooms...

I have stayed twice at the Allan Guesthouse in Aberdeen, and hope to do so again. Spotlessly clean, with excellent rooms and facilities, very friendly hosts and yummy breakfast. The location is also convenient, with a lovely park nearby. Moderate walk into the city centre and good parking outside.

Very friendly guest house. Decorated to a high standard, a good breakfast, vegetarians catered for, everything you need for a comfortable stay in Aberdeen. The hotel is located next to the Winter Gardens which are well worth a visit and is an easy walk to the centre of town. Overall I couldn't fault this excellent establishment.

We spend 4 wonderful days at Allan Guest House. Everything was perfect. The hosts were very friendly and attentive. The whole building was very tidy, the bedrooms spacious and Brenda and Stuart really did everything to make us feel good during our short stay. Breakfast was excellent.
