The Wardens "Deserves to be in the top five guest houses in Aberdeen!" "Have recently spent six nights in this excellent guest house.

The location is good although a little way out of the centre but local buses stop right outside the front door. The parking is very convenient at the back of the guest house. The standard of the rooms were good and the breakfast were very good with plenty of choice.

Thank you for your lovely review. We like to think that we offer one of the best choices of breakfast in Aberdeen. Graduation is a lovely time but a busy one, so maybe next time you come, you can have time to just relax and enjoy a break. Regards Pam & Dave More

We highly recommend the Aurora! Quiet side street, best breakfast (Ask David for the Aberdeen buttery instead of toast), great hosts with plenty of helpful local information, use of the garden. This was our first time at the Aurora, but we would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for your review - so glad you enjoyed your first taste of butteries or rowies as they are often called. These are our local Aberdeen bread - very unhealthy - but any Aberdonian who moves away will long for them. We will make sure we have some when you return, Regards Pam & Dave More

the Aurora is a nice guest house on Victorian Row in Aberdeen. Pam and Dave know how to make guests feel at home and are very helpful and knowledgeable. Room was very comfortable and the location is good for exploring the area. Excellent full Scottish breakfast prepared to order with always a little surprise extra.
