We had a very nice one-night stay at this very extraordinary place. We received a heartly welcome from Andreas and had a great home-cooked three course dinner (fried trout) in a cosy atmosphere (just four guests). Our room was rather large with a newly renovated bathroom. Maybe the most impressive part of the B&B is the "living room" on the... More

Everything was fine, especially the kindlyness of Andreas and Kris. Very nice rooms (we stayed as a family of four in two bedrooms). We especially recommend Kris great cooking - no matter if for breakfast or for diner in the evening. The offered three course meal is a MUST !

We stayed two nights while visiting from the United States to do family tree research in the area. Our large bedroom and bathroom were very comfortable, clean and well appointed, as were the dining room and main lounge. Andreas and Kris have done a great job converting the Old Church at Urquhart into a b&b with a manor house atmosphere.... More

My mom and I stayed for three nights at Urquhart Church, and they were our favorite nights during our one month stay in the UK. Andreas and Kris are such wonderful hosts, and we shared many great conversations and lot's of laughs during our stay with them. Our rooms were stunning with full church windows looking out to a garden... More

We could not have chosen a better place to stay for a few days discovering the Moray Coast. From the moment we were welcomed by Andreas, our host, until the moment we left we were so well looked after. The room was so clean and comfortable, the public areas are full of interest and the food (cooked by Kris) is... More
