We highly recommend the Aurora! Quiet side street, best breakfast (Ask David for the Aberdeen buttery instead of toast), great hosts with plenty of helpful local information, use of the garden. This was our first time at the Aurora, but we would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for your review - so glad you enjoyed your first taste of butteries or rowies as they are often called. These are our local Aberdeen bread - very unhealthy - but any Aberdonian who moves away will long for them. We will make sure we have some when you return, Regards Pam & Dave

Thank you - how proud we are that we helped you to enjoy your stay so much.

the Aurora is a nice guest house on Victorian Row in Aberdeen. Pam and Dave know how to make guests feel at home and are very helpful and knowledgeable. Room was very comfortable and the location is good for exploring the area. Excellent full Scottish breakfast prepared to order with always a little surprise extra.

Thank you for your lovely review. We try our best to make sure no-one leaves hungry and top you all up with pancakes and batteries at breakfast time.
