From the welcoming pot of tea with home baking, to the clean well-appointed bedroom, to the excellent breakfast and the friendly, helpful hosts every aspect is of the highest standard.

As some of the other reviews suggest, the Aurora Guest House is likely one of the nicest, well run B&Bs in Aberdeen. Pam and Dave are excellent hosts. Breakfasts are delicious. Their B&B is very comfortable and welcoming. Parking is available and bus service is just outside the door. We really enjoyed our visit to Aberdeen and the Aurora Guest... More

Of the many B&Bs in Aberdeen, this is easily one of the best. It's very clean, comfortable, and quiet. There was an excellent choice for breakfast and some homemade treats on arrival. The hosts are very friendly and it was no problem to store my wee folding bike indoors. It's good value by Aberdeen standards, too. The location is not... More

Stayed here for one night whilst in Aberdeen on business. The place is very clean and well kept. The hosts, Pamela and Dave, are pleasant and welcoming. The room was nice and equipped with everything you might need. Breakfast was very tasty and nicely presented. Would stay here again.

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.
