I'd read Tripadvisor before we went, so I knew what to expect. Believe me, it's all true; the accommodation is classy, the service razor-sharp - especially from Naomi, the sweetest maid/ waitress I've ever met. The place is immaculate, with everything just so and naturally, things like that just don't happen on their own. Shelagh and her team are beavering... More

We just spent two nights at The Old Minister's House and absolutely loved it. This was our second visit, first being 2 years ago. Shelagh is a wonderful host with exceptional standards. The moment you step into this B&B you know its luxurious, tastefully furnished and impeccably clean (very important). Our room was on the ground floor next to lounge... More

Ideally placed just outside Aviemore on the road up to the mountains, this is an excellent choice to enjoy a wee break. We have just returned from a two night stay and wanted to record how enjoyable it was. From the moment we received a warm welcome and were shown to our room, the cares of the world melted from...

My wife and I stayed at the Old Minister's House from the 27th to 30th July. It is the best B&B we have stayed in. The house is lovingly looked after and full of character and charm. On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome by Shelagh the owner. Our bedroom was beautifully presented with the view from the... More

This is a lovely old house which has been done up beautifully. The wonderful character and charm of the house have not been lost with updating into what is supposed to be a 5 star experience. My room was lovely- large, all amenities, lovely bathroom, great bed that you just sank into. The lounge area was very comfortable with welcoming... More

The Old Minister's House is the perfect place for a romantic retreat, it's in a brilliant location and the rooms are decorated beautifully, very luxurious. The bed is extremely comfortable and the little treats in the room are a lovely touch. Breakfast was fantastic, delicious, and we had no problem booking a time for it-it's a small room so everyone...

I have made 20 trips to Scotland in the past 12 years of 2 weeks to 2 months duration, and I almost always stay in B&B's. I am certain I have stayed at more than 100 B&B's in that time, and this one is by far the finest I have ever encountered. I stayed here previously in 2003 under a... More

This is a superb B&B. We thought it was one of the best-managed places we'd ever stayed in and represented superb value for money. Positives: - The breakfast. Oh my. This is up there with the very, very best breakfast experiences we've had anywhere. It really is that good. Everything was either made fresh or was carefully sourced and it... More
