On a visit to Nairn with family we decided to give this restaurant a try due to the good reviews. We were welcomed at the door of the restaurant by the proprietor and his team who showed us to our table in the conservatory which was light and airy. The menu is mainly Italian with pasta, pizza and steak options.... More

We were here on Thursday. The food was beautiful. Pasta dishes for both of us. Huge portions too which we both managed to finish. Also must say the staff were so friendly and seemed genuinely pleased to see you enjoy their food. If you haven't been before you should go. If this was in Aberdeen with this quality of food...

We were here with good friends for an evening and had a lovely Italian meal in this restaurant. The owners and some clientele are Italian which was a good indicator and we had high standard of food for all three courses. We sat in the conservatory and it was spotless and the staff were really very friendly and lovely.

Was quite disappointed when we arrived here. The hotel needs to be modernised and updated, rooms were ok for 1 night but considering the price we paid for a family room was a bit on the expensive side. The plus side though was a lovely cooked breakfast which was served in the conservatory.

Stayed here recently on business. Owners are lovely people who make you feel welcome. Unfortunately the hotel itself could do with some redecorating as it's a little dated and tired. Room was a single room and it did what it said on the tin. Small. Bed was comfortable enough and good WiFi connection. Didn't have an evening meal here. Breakfast... More

We went to the Aurora whilst on holiday in Nairn after reading reviews on here. We had a lovely Italian meal and chatted to the friendly hosts. We would definitely return again if in the area.

The Aurora Hotel has a wonderful Italian restaurant with seating in a dining room and in a glassed in atrium type room. I sat in the atrium. Very pleasant atmosphere and very relaxing. I had a delicious meal - spaghetti with prawns and garlic bread. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Service was very good. Prices were very reasonable.... More
