Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.

눉Only finding our way out of town when we left. Google maps failed us!!
눇Carol was an excellent host and the accommodation was spot on. I was travelling with my parents and they loved the place. It was easy to find and easy to get to the centre of town from.
December 1, 2016
눉It was a pity that we could only park outside on the "pay"; but it was not to bad.
눇Superfriendly and heartwarming welcome/stay. Carol always tried to make our stay as comfy as possible. Breakfast was continental but there were soooo much choices, that we left with full bellies 😀. Room was quiet, clean, big and confy. I hope I/ we could see you again. BTW: thank you for consulting us with the route. It was definitely the better choice!
November 22, 2016
눇Carol was a wonderful host. She made me feel right at home & helped me out with tips regarding the main attractions in or around Aberdeen, which helped me a lot since I came for a photography project. I would definitely come back next year!
October 23, 2016
눉Nothing could have been better for the price paid for a triple room.
눇Loved the host, the breakfast, the location. I even overslept past check our time and it was no problem. Thank you.
October 22, 2016
눉Everything was just fine, some scrambled eggs for breakfast would make it perfect.
눇Carol, the owner, is very nice and helpful in any way. The dog Holly is cute. Very warm and welcoming atmosphere!
October 4, 2016
눉Bathroom and toilets are not in the rooms. Only cash payment.
눇Extremely friendly lady owner. She was waiting for us at 11.00 PM. Breakfast was ready in the morning. Very quiet and warm place.
September 26, 2016
눉Probably only the absence of a cooked breakfast, but it didn't bother me at all, considering all other great things of my stay.
눇Fantastic host - really, really cares about her guests and has lots of great advises on how to spend time in and around Aberdeen. I was sad to leave that place. Charming house. Very comfortable rooms and beds.
September 26, 2016
눇Very nice place, friendly hospitality, very clean, comfortable beds, owner is open to help and give helpful advices, the city is within walking distance
September 21, 2016
눉Didn't appreciate that we had a shared bathroom and that it would be on the floor below us. Should have read the description more closely. Wasn't really an issue just unexpected.
눇Central location only 10 mins walk to Union Street. Friendly host and a good breakfast despite there being no cooked option - better for the waistline!!
September 11, 2016
눇I sincerely have only praise for this Guest House. Our hostess was always polite, kind, and ready to help us in any way possible. She gave us some maps of the city and some recommendations on what was around. Although we didn't have our own shower/toilet room, we had no issues while using the shared ones. We had anyway a sink in our room, that was very convenient. The place is clean, comfortable and cozy, and our beds were pleasant to sleep on. Internet was not an issue, nor parking (though I guess we were lucky in that regard since they don't charge for it on Sundays). They only serve cold breakfast, which was not a problem for us. Toast was served upon request (I admit I missed the English Breakfast, but since I had so many of those in the UK, maybe it was actually good for me not to have it available there anyway). I personally can barely believe the quality of the experience we had when I think of the price for the room (49 GBP for one night in a twin room). This is a place I would definitely book again on my next trip to the UK.
September 8, 2016
눉Everything was perfect :)
눇Owner of the guest house, Carol, is one of the nicest people I've ever met, she was really nice and helpful, the room was nice and clean, breakfasts were okay too.
August 29, 2016
눇I loved staying at this sweet guest house. Carol is such a great host and made me feel welcome and at home from the moment I walked in the door hours early and with way too much stuff in my backpack. She let me sort through my things on the dining room floor and leave some stuff there while I went hiking! I came back hours later to a ready room and my stuff was already inside! Breakfast was nice and relaxing and Carol is always there to get you whatever you need. She is also great at giving advice for things to do!
August 28, 2016
눇Only passed through Aberdeen, stayed for the night. Room and bathrooms clean and orderly. Owner friendly, welcoming and comforting. Great for short stays.
August 24, 2016
눉It was unfortunate that there was no "Full English" (or Scottish, for that matter) option at breakfast. The excuse that there was only one person on duty wasn't a good enough reason as other guest houses I've stayed at don't find this an issue. The lack of an en-suite was a shame and the "trek" from one end of the house to the other for a shower was not pleasant.
눇This is a lovely guest house with a friendly owner. It was perfect for my overnight stay and the room I had, although small (last one available), was clean and comfortable.
August 10, 2016
눉not a person for continental breakfast.
눇room was comfortable and clean. location was excellent just off union street. well looked after by the owner carol.
August 9, 2016
눉We were in the last room at the last level, so too many stairs for us for just one night stay.
눇The staff is super friendly and it is a very quiet building.
August 5, 2016
눉The house is quite noisy and you can hear everyone coming and going which is made worse because of the shared bathroom. People are up and down all night using the only bathroom.
August 1, 2016
눉The matresses are a bit old in my opinion... but I must say that I had this feeling in almost every place where we stayed in Scotland!
눇Caroll is very very friendly, she'll do everything for her guests !!! The breakfast was very good The rooms were nice also
July 31, 2016
눉Toilet was shared (shower in our room), which is not a particular problem but I was not aware of this at time of booking. It was probably advertised but as an experienced booking.com user it was not obvious to me.
눇Good value for money, host Carol very friendly, helpful and offered untimed parking spot out front as we were first in. Easy walking distance into town.
July 31, 2016
눉Would have been even better with a cooked breakfast instead of continental
눇Carol was a really nice lady. she welcomed us into her home and was very helpful with places to eat and drink in Aberdeen. I'm going to have a daughter in university in September and would definitely stay at the Applewood again. Thank you carol you are a great hostess
July 12, 2016
눇Carol who runs the place is very helpful and friendly. I love the place, very clean, neat and organised. The service she provided was very good and accommodating. A good place to stay and worth your money.
June 22, 2016
눇Carol, the host, was excellent! She gave great recommendations and was extremely accommodating. Next time I'm in Aberdeen I'll definitely stay here again!
June 19, 2016
눉Having to go down the hall to the toilet was a minor inconvenience
눇Carol was an excellent host, the bed was very comfortable & the room large & airy. The hotel opposite had a very good restaurant for lunch & dinner if you want.
June 15, 2016
눇We had a lovely stay at Applewood guest house - good location, only 5 min walk to ferry terminal and shops. Carol was lovely and breakfast very nice. We would definitely stay here again.
June 15, 2016
눉All as expected.
눇Good location, near the main avenues and the centre, but also, easy to reach and exit to the surroundings. The owner is friendly and helpfull, thanks for the tips.
June 4, 2016
눇This b&b is great value for money. Good continental style breakfast with a variety of cereals, yoghurts, cheeses, jams and toast. I loved my single attic room, very snug and cozy. Carol has great recommendations for things to do and transport.
June 1, 2016
눇Very helpful and friendly hostess, who went out of her way to make my stay in Aberdeen good, without being overwhelming. Free from the kitsch and clutter which often spoil personal guest houses. I felt very comfortable.
May 29, 2016
눉Had to wait for toilet as only 2 available, but not en suite so to be expected. Everything else great
눇Excellent breakfast; owner could not have been more helpful; room quiet, comfortable and warm; great value for money
May 29, 2016
눇Carol very warm & welcoming good base for further travels in area. Carol really helpful with local information & directions. Would definitely use again
May 24, 2016
눇Carol is very hospitable woman. She gave us recomendation what we can see and visit. She really took care of us feel comfortable and enjoy our stay. Clean and tidy room and also bathroom. Definitely satisfied breakfastIf. If I ever come back to Aberdeen I want to stay there again.
May 12, 2016
눉Shared bathrooms on different floor (certainly for me, not sure if there are any ensuite), but were clean, warm, and always available.
눇The most friendly place I have ever stayed in. Carol, the owner, went above and beyond what would be expected as your guide/host. Breakfasts were good, but do not expect a cooked breakfast. For me this was fine. For the price, it was perfect.
May 10, 2016
눉There was nothing we did not like.
눇Carol, the manager, was very helpful and welcoming at all times. She was very accommodating to all three of us particularly our adult son who has a learning disability. We all enjoyed our stay very much; the breakfasts were good and the rooms comfortable. Nothing to complain about at all.
May 10, 2016
눉I think the breakfast could be a little bit more healthy but in general it was very satisfactory with lots of different breakfast cereal, toasts, milk, etc, etc! Overall a good relation price-value!
눇Clair was really, really friendly. Don't hesitate to book this Guest House if you are visiting Aberdeen, its only a 5 minute walk to the city center and Donnatar Castle is only at a 25 minute car drive. We really liked the decoration and everything was spot clean! The room was very warm and cosy although the bed could be a little more comfortable. P.S.: Do ask Clair for any information! She is very helpful!
May 4, 2016
눇Carol is very welcoming and friendly, recommended some places to go to eat and to visit. Clean and comfortable room. Very good location for the city center and for the railway station.
April 28, 2016
눇Carol, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful and friendly! And this is a good location for the city centre- less than 15 mins walk from the station and Union Squatre
April 21, 2016
눉En suite would have been nice but it was not a problem and it would have been more expensive.
눇Very friendly and helpful. Quiet area, no traffic noise or disturbance. After our stay we felt rested and ready for our journey.
April 8, 2016
눉There is nothing I could criticize indeed.
눇All - response before I came. Waiting for me at late night. Kindness when I arrived. Access to breakfast. Cleannes.
April 5, 2016
눇Excellent value for money and catered to both my son and I requirements, with free Wi-Fi and dvd player in room a bonus. Also Carol gave us info on local things to go and do for restaurants and local entertainment.
April 4, 2016
눉There was no parking available by the time I arrived, breakfast was continental only, bathrooms were two flights of stairs down from bedrooms and has some mould on the inside of the shower door.
눇The owner was very friendly and had a lovely dog.
March 26, 2016
눉Place smells of old cigarette smoke, is tired and badly needs redecorated. To be fair though the price probably reflects this. I personally would pay more in future for a more modernised clean smelling room.
눇Owner was charming and is good value.
March 15, 2016
눇The Applewood was an excellent place to stay. I play in a wedding band and travel around a lot. Carol, the owner had emailed and phoned ahead to make sure that everything was satisfactory on arrival. She was a charming and lovely host, as was her friendly, little dog, Hollie. She made sure we had everything we needed before setting off for our gig. We were arriving back in late at night so she even let us stay on a few extra hours in the room so we could sleep as we had another gig that night and were making the drive back to Glasgow that night. Couldn't recommend a B&B higher in my opinion.
February 21, 2016
눇I had a very comfortable room. The accommodation was very clean and nothing was too much trouble for the proprietor, who did everything to make my stay a very pleasant one.
February 12, 2016
눇Very cosy guesthouse well located on the sunny side. The host Carol, always friendly and helpful, has made the stay an absolute pleasure. Definiately a go to place for a short stay in Abrdeen.
February 11, 2016
눇The host, Carol, is a very kind and hospitable lady. She recommended us lots of great places to visit or to have meals during our short stay. Although the breakfast usually starts at 7, as we had to catch the train at 7.15, she got up early to prepare food for us. We were so grateful to her. and our room at the top floor was very quiet and had a great view.
February 11, 2016
눇Really great stay, Carol who runs the guest house could not be more hospitable. Clean, homely and just what I needed after a long drive up from Glasgow late at night. Highly recommended and would certainly look to stay here on my next visit!
February 7, 2016

December 2, 2015
눇We felt right at home at Applewood. Carol, the owner, was great and so helpful with everything. Could not ask for a better host! The rooms were sweet and the bathrooms clean. Great location, close walk to city centre. We don't have anything bad to say about our stay!
