I've stayed in probably 4 dozen B&Bs in the UK and Ireland and Aikenshill House is quite simply, the best. James and Shona are incredibly warm, personable and accommodating hosts. Shona said they attempted to capture the best of what they liked from numerous places in which they have stayed around the world...mission accomplished! Aikenshill House is a century old... More

We have nothing but the highest praise for our stay at Aikenshill House and for our gracious hosts James and Shona. Our stay was the highlight of our Scotland trip. As mentioned in the other reviews, the views, rooms, house and meals are excellent. Aikenshill is furnished like a luxury boutique hotel but has a relaxed, informal feel. Most appreciated... More

As my Husband's family had originally come from Ellon Scotland I looked on Trip Advisor to find a place to stay in August 2015. James was excellent in keeping in touch and I felt we already knew him before our arrival. We asked for a room on the first floor ( USA second) so we did not have too many... More

Everything about Aikenshill is spot-on. Friendly people who make u feel at ease, beautiful and immaculately clean rooms throughout and thoughtfulness that goes far beyond what you would expect. On top of that James and Shona make it look effortless. They even sent my phone charger to me after I left it in the room, thank you!

I can highly recomend a stay at the Aikenshill. The rooms are lovely, bed is really good, everything is clean and the interior in the whole house is in a very good taste. Wonderful view of the Ocean from our room. The owners really do everything to make it a wonderful experience to stay there. We arrived late, but still... More

I have never been moved to write a review of a hotel or B&B before. But Aikenshill deserves a mention because it was quite the loveliest B&B I have ever stayed in. We received a warm welcome and outstanding service which went way beyond what was expected. Including being driven to our dinner destination to avoid a getting a cab,... More

Do not even look or consider elsewhere if staying in this region as you will not better Aikenshill. Simply outstanding and world class place to stay. I travel all over the world on a regular basis and this place tops them all. Just go to meet Eric the Highland bull and his girls.....wonderful entrance to Scotland's best home from home.

We ended up at Aikenshill House when the hotel we originally had booked had overbooked. They put us in Aikenshill House and that was the best thing that could have happened. Spacious, modern, clean en-suite bedrooms and a lovely breakfast. But the highlight is the family itself. James, Shona and daughters Jessica and Sarah are a delight to be with,... More

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...
