Reviewed 26 August 2013

We spent four nigths here during the Edimburgh Fringe Festival. Maurawas lovely, the room very clean and quiet, and the food very good. The location, near from the airport, is merely perfect. Would not hesitate to recomand. Thank you.

From the second the front door opened myself and my friend were made feel so welcome, it was like staying at one of my Aunt's houses. We stayed for 1 night only the room was well furnished to a high standard with all the facilities we required. Breakfast in the morning was more than we could of asked for. we toured round Scotland and found the service and comfort of this B&B far better than some of the hotel's we had stayed in. Thanks for a lovely stay hope to see you again in the future. Andy

This is a truly first-class B&B and superb value for money. I stayed for one night before a very early flight to Italy and found it a delightful place: it's easy to find (2 minutes from the Airlink bus stop to the airport), only about a 5 minute bus ride to the airport itself and the room was lovely. The place has all the facilities one would expect in a B&B (tea/coffee making in room, TV in room etc) and is scrupulously clean. The owner, Maura, is delightful and was fantastically welcoming. Even though I was leaving very early in the morning (well before breakfast) she offered to make a snack to take with me. Given the price this is a real gem.

I would stay here again without a shadow-of-a-doubt. Highly recommended.

We needed to get up very early to catch our flight the next morning and so this B&B was perfect for us. The rooms have basic amenities like TV and a selection of tea and coffee. We shared a bathroom but that was fine with us.

Our host made us a little breakfast to go, which was really cute. Transfer to the airport went very well.

For many years, my husband & I have intended to attend the Edinburgh Festival. At long last, we did so a couple of weekends ago with friends. We decided to stay overnight somewhere on the Saturday night instead of rushing for the last train, or nominating a driver! It was a struggle to get reasonably priced accommodation or a Guest house that would accept a single night stay. A good 'trawl' of the Internet, and I found Aurora. A little gem! There are only 2 rooms, a twin and a double, sharing a bathroom, but as we were there with friends, that really was not an issue. We received a lovely warm welcome. The rooms are spotless with tea/coffee facilities. Breakfast was freshly cooked and lovely. The location is ideal. Off street parking for 1 car, and a short walk to the main road to catch the bus into the City.
I have no hesitation in recommending this lovely wee Guest House & would definitely visit again.

Stayed at Maura the third time now! She's very friendly, nice breakfast (once she prepared some 'early take away breakfast' for us cause we had an early flight) Quiet location but very handy. Some minutes drive (or by bus) to the airport. Bus stop (to airport and city centre) within 2 min. walk. We'll definitely return next time!

We stayed only one night at Aurora B&B, because our plane was quite late in the evening and we didn't want to go far after our arrival. We didn't check for recommendations beforehand and were really surprised that we had found such a jewel.
Aurora is a very small B&B with only two rooms (not en-suite, but with a tidy bathroom to share next door) and a very charming hostess! You directly feel yourself at home.
The breakfast that we took in our hostess's living room was delicious and not only the typical cooked breakfast that you get at the bigger B&B.
Aurora is situated on a very quiet street but very close to the airport.
