Stayed at the Aurora Guest house for two nights in early part of July, while working in the area. The booking process was simple. Pam & Dave responded promptly to my emails and were good hosts. I stayed in a double room on ground floor (single occupancy) and found the room to be well decorated, modern and very clean. The... More

We stayed in Aurora Guest House for an entire week while on vacation in Scotland in May and it couldn't have gone any smoother. I think Pam and Dave have thought of everything! There is a great list of things to do and places to go in the front room. Our room was very clean and comfortable and refreshed daily.... More

Thank you and so glad you enjoyed the Scottish tablet. You said that the fudge and the raspberry jam reminded you of the Xmas parcels as children. Every time I make the tablet it still reminds me of my brother and I scraping out the pot with the leftovers. Hope you have been tempted to try and make one of... More

Our plane was delayed so we didn't arrive till 10pm but our welcome couldn't have been warmer. It seems nothing is too much trouble for Pam and Dave. Breakfast is delicious. Dave was a chef and it shows. Lots of homemade goodies - pancakes, jams, butteries (a Scottish flat croissant-type delicacy). And excellent sausages and bacon. Oh of course free... More

Thank you so much - how lovely to have guests 100% pleased. You were also very considerate guests keeping us well informed with your flights being delayed due to bad weather. We were surprised any flights operated that night. We started last year on a total refurbishment of all the rooms - only a couple to go, so glad you... More

We stayed two nights at Aurora Guesthouse. The twin room was quite big, comfortable, clean and quiet. Pam and Dave are very kind and helpful. You have a large choice of goods for the breakfast, either Scottish (highly recommended) or Continental breakfast. The owners select products from the area of Aberdeen for the breakfast. You can easily park closed to... More

Thank you for your lovely comments. As part of our Visit Scotland Taste Our Best Award we have always used Scottish produce where available.
