The Aurora shines brightly in Aberdeen
The guesthouse is situated on Great Western Road, within easy access of Aberdeen city centre, either on foot or by bus. A couple of nearby hotels have restaurants providing evening meals and there is an award-winning and very popular fish and chip restaurant nearby. The Aurora's owners were very welcoming and helpful as far as offering advice about the area, bus services and so on was concerned. The breakfast room is light and airy and there's plenty of choice on offer for breakfast, including weekly specials such as smoked salmon and scrambled egg. Special dietary requirements are catered for too. My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend this guesthouse to anyone needing accommodation in Aberdeen.

Best B&B I've stayed at in Aberdeen!
This was my first time staying at Aurora Guest House and would definitely return in the future! I live outside the city and from time to time need a room for an overnight stay. This is hands down the best B&B I've used in Aberdeen. You can tell the owners put great care into this place. The location is fantastic and within easy walking distance of the city centre. I was greeted on arrival into a warm, cosy reception area and offered delicious looking home bakes and tea or coffee. The room was clean, warm, cosy and quiet. Also easily the most comfortable bed I've ever had at a B&B or regular hotel - it was like being at home! There is a fantastic selection for home cooked breakfasts in the morning and mine was delicious. The service and quality along with price make Aurora a top choice in my opinion and I will definitely come back if need a room in town again.

Great food, comfortable bed, lovely host
I thought the place I stayed in Dublin was lovely and now I find myself without a string enough positive adjective to do justice to how wonderful the Aurora Guest House is! Love the area-bus 19 stops outside the front door. Very quiet and comfortable bed for sleeping. Delicious and nutritious breakfast. Great old railway paved trail nearby for running and close to the Winter Garden at Duthie Park as well as easy brisk walk to city center. Cannot say enough good things about Pamela and how welcome she made me feel. Best guest house in which I have ever stayed!
