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.

Excellent 5 star bed and breakfast accommodation. Wonderful host and comfortable beyond all expectations. Home from home experience and makes a business trip away so much more pleasurable. Breakfast is fab and James goes over and beyond the call of duty.

I booked an overnight stay for a party of Austrians on their first visit to Scotland and could not have made a better choice. They were still talking days later about James and his warm hospitality and immaculately furnished house. The breakfast offered us the best of local produce in abundance served by James himself.

I flew to Aberdeen with a party of Austrians in late March. They are used to good food, high standards of cleanliness and value for money, making me slightly worried because I didn't want to disappoint them. Aikenshill House was not only close to the airport but also proved to be the perfect choice. Although the gale-force winds and freezing... More

I have stayed at Aikenshill twice and the quality and service is second to none. James and Shona are wonderful hosts and make a big effort to make you feel as though you are at home away from home. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the breakfasts are prepared to your choice, if you request something special the day before... More
