Aurora Guest House is clean, comfortable and hospitable. Pam and Dave are extremely nice and welcoming. They helped us find buses to the places we wanted to go (we did not have a car). Breakfast was fresh and delicious. We highly recommend it!!

Thank you it was a pleasure to have your lovely family staying with us. Dave loved the little drawings on his breakfast tickets every morning and we will get the big one framed and hang it proudly for other guests to see. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your holidays. 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.

Thank you for your lovely review. We try our best to make sure no-one leaves hungry and top you all up with pancakes and batteries at breakfast time. If time allows - some fresh home bakes in the afternoon. The smell of home bakes alone just makes it feel homely. So glad you enjoyed these little extras. Regards Pam &... More

Stayed at this place for two nights with my cousin and brother. Very beautiful rooms and the breakfast is lovely. I shared a twin room on the top floor. The couple who own Aurora Guest House are wonderful and friendly.

Booked my parents in here for a short break & they were not disappointed. Pam & Dave's hospitality was second to none with great attention to detail paid to all aspects of the business. A clean, airy room & fabulous breakfasts made for an extremely successful trip! Thanks Pam & Dave.
