We spent four nights at the Aurora Guest House and had a wonderful time. Pamela and David are warm and hospitable and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. The breakfast has everything you could want and there were always homemade scones available if you were hungry. There was ample parking in the back. The house is an... More

We were passing through Aberdeen for a couple of days during a 10 day tour of Scotland. I booked the Aurora Guest House in Aberdeen based on the wonderful pictures on trip advisor and the great reviews. I sure am glad I did.

We had a trip to Aberdeen for one night. We had a wonderful room at the top with great views and everything was to a very high standard.

Many thanks for your review - I think everyone can't believe the views when we are so close to the city. This was originally 2 rooms which we renovated and made into one large room so the 2 south facing windows make it lovely and bright. We will look forward to seeing you again if you are passing this way.... More

My fiance and I only spent one night in the excellent bed and breakfast; we wish we could have spent longer. It is quite obvious that the couple who own this B&B have showered the place with love and attention.
