It was our fourth time at The Jays, and hope to be there every time we are in Aberdeen. There is nothing but good things to say: 5 star hosts (Alice and George are so nice and friendly you feel like being home), very well run B’N’B, clean room, and superb breakfast. 100% recommendable!

I work in Aberdeen reglarly throughout the year and have stayed in several hotels and B+B's in and out of the city. Jays is definitely the best I have tried, very comfortable, best value for money, spotlessly clean and great hospitality from Alice and George. Excellent wi-fi connection also.

Excellent service and a very homely feeling in the Guesthouse. Personal service excellent when I forgot to take breakfast in time, due to a wonderful walk at the seaside! The location is perfect: very close to the campus, to the seaside - in short: the beste in Aberdeen! Hans Schaeffer
