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

Great place to stay! Amazing homemade food! Make sure you order dinner! Welcomed by owner and got a tour around the church. Lovely atmosphere! Fireplace. Peaceful and relaxing. Highly recommended! The owner knows a lot about area, make sure you ask about it.

We got married on 15/05/15 at this special place and had booked all rooms for our family members. We came over from Germany and also the whole family did to celebrate this special day with us. Andreas and Kris made us a perfect and unforgettable day. During these 4 days in the Old Church we felt like home and enjoyed... More

We stayed during the speysidewhiskyfestival in this manifique place. Every thing is as clean as it has to be, the beds are comfortable and very nice to know, Kris is a very good cook. So if you don't where to go for dinner don't look to far

Dear Andi and Kris, better late than never. We stayed at this gorgeous place from 29.05. – 30.05.14 and it was outstanding. Great atmosphere, great hosts and creating family-like breakfast and diner  We loved it and wished to stay for more than one night. Thanks a lot. Best Regards Daniela and Klaus

We had the perfect wedding in the perfect place. We got married here in 2007 and wouldn't have changed a thing about our day. We were looking for accommodation for a relatives wedding and came across this by accident and it just looked the perfect place for a unique wedding, when we went to view it, wow it was perfect....

I loved staying here. It was a great location and very welcoming hosts. I was the vegetarian at the table in the previous review, and yes they did serve a vegetarian dish (which I thought was delicious, and will be googling for a recipe), but were also very clear about food requests when I made my booking. My experience of... More

Great to read from a guest giving Rating 5 whilst others same evening are grading only 2! Its really easy with us to enjoy the very best of hospitality and food as we really love to please and to entertain...also it requires a clear focus by guests on their requirements and expectations and most important a clear communication with us!...

I booked this place through a voucher given to me for my birthday, although the place itself was stunning our experience wasn't a great one. The accommodation was very basic and the building itself was very cold, we took our 6 year old daughter with us and she was complaining of being cold pretty much all the time we were... More

This is a B&B in the 'old-fashioned' way with strong believe in sharing our private home including high-quality furniture and decoration telling stories of our life with others. We like as well the idea of guests gathering -specially at our spectacular main lounge upstairs around a big table; also there is a 2nd lounge and a 2nd table on offer... More
