We stayed here for two nights on 20/06/2014 and after trawling through all the B&Bs, we chose The Auld Kirk based on the reviews and the quirkiness of the building. We were not disappointed! We received a warm welcome from Peter who showed us our room and gave us the lowdown on the amenities. Fantastic room, very comfortable - the... More

Visited in March with friends for a couple of nights. Had a very comfortable stay and would certainly recommend. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The old kirk has been very well renovated and is a credit to the owners.

I would definitely recommend staying here if you are holidaying in Royal Deeside. We stayed for two nights recently when attending a wedding nearby. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was tastefully done and very comfortable. Great shower. Breakfasts were excellent - I don`t normally do cooked breakfasts but I really enjoyed my freshly cooked to... More

It was a winter Sunday and only us and one other staying however they didn't stint on the breakfast buffet with a good selection of fruits yogurts etc. The cooked part of... More

Was directed to this absolutely delightful B&B because I couldn't get a hotel in Aberdeen. I couldn't believe my luck ! The Auld Kirk is a converted church which has been finished to a very high standard. Almost everything you would expect from a higher class hotel is provided at a much more realistic cost. The staff were extremely attentive... More

We stayed once again for Victoria week at the Old Kirk, the room was perfect for our needs with a wonderful view. The service from the staff was second to none, they could not have done more to make our stay perfect. The central position of the hotel could not be better and easy walking distance for everything Ballater can... More
