I usually stay in hotels (safe option) but my client recommended Aikenshill so I thought I would give it a go. When I next come to Aberdeen, forget hotels! Aikenshill provide the best service, best food, best rooms and all with an exceptionally friendly service. I would not hesitate a second to recommend this 5 star B&B.

Working in Aberdeen, no more over-priced, poor hotels since I discovered this gem of a place. 2 minutes from beach, 30 mins from Aberdeen centre. Interiors just beautiful. For dinner this evening - Locally smoked hake risotto followed by Greek yogurt with dried fruit in clove/cinnamon/star-anise syrup - divine! All lovingly made by the owner. He even printed me a...

From the first look through the window as we drove up, we knew we had made the right decision. The warm fire in the guest lounge was inviting and the entire house welcomed us, as did James and "Betty's Shona". Warm tea helped us acclimate to the deliciously decorated home they share with their guests. A wee dram of the... More

Great place, great host. I git a very warm welcome on arrival to the house coupled with a personal lift to the local watering hole where the food is devine. My room was immaculate and the whole place is a home away from home, what more could you ask for? Thanks alot and i will be staying again soon!

The five stars awarded by the AA for a bed & breakfast is well earned. Convenient for Aberdeen but in a quiet location. Reasonably priced compared to accommodation in the city. Very well appointed rooms and bathroom. James Duthie, a most excellent host who was happy to offer a personalised service. No kettle in the rooms....but a tray with cafetiere... More

The rooms are large, modern, clean, and comfortable. The location was great for our golf at Trump and Cruden Bay. It's a remote setting, but that was fine for our needs.We had a nice greeting and all our needs were attended to. The breakfast was delicious and served in a nice dining room.

Aikenshill House is for you if: 1) you like to feel like family popping in for a visit and receiving a "we're so glad you came" welcome. 2) you like conversations--with owners/operators, Jim and Shona--and with other guests at breakfast around a shared table or during the evening in the sitting room. 3) you would like the items on your...

Booked an overnight stay after arriving at Aberdeen Airport. The accommodations were excellent as well as the food and hospitality. Thanks Shona for recommending Ballindalloch Castle. We would have missed a great place to visit.
