This was a return visit for us and as usual, I have not been able to find a B & B that even comes close...and I have stayed at numerous B & B's all over Britain! Hilary and Herbie are such a genuinely warm and welcoming couple who bend over backwards to help their guests and promote the area. Come... More

This place is amazing! We had the room with the four poster bed - wow, what a room! The property is beautifully decorated throughout - and we know, because the owners kindly showed us all the bedrooms. Herbie & Hilary are wonderful hosts - always time for a chat and very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. We arrived... More

Hilary and Herbie have left no stane unturned to make your stay in the Forres area a most pleasant one. It was a truly lucky find for a fine mid-February weekend visit - centrally located between Aberdeen and Inverness, the Cairngorms, the Whisky Trail, Findhorn, and as many Scottish villages as you care to visit. We were treated to hearty... More

Best B&B we ever lived in. A unique place with very friendly hosts. Modern bathroom with brand new equipment. Large flatscreen TV and Satelite TV. Rooms are located in the first floor next to the guest lounge. There are only a view miles to Forres. Other atractions are nearby.

Fantastic location for exploring Moray and surrounding areas. The Old Kirk was a wonderful find and we can't recommend it highly enough. The bedrooms were first class , we also had an amazing lounge which incorporated the original church window - but still managed to feel cosy and welcoming. We must also thank Hillary and Herbie who made us very... More

We have stayed in lots of hotels around the world, but if all b&b's were like this we wouldn't stay anywhere else.Fantastic bedrooms, amazing guest lounge,hospitality second to none. Close to Forres and just a mile from a good pub with food.

Booked 6 nights for a visit of the Moray coast and Speyside ( whisky distillery visits ). The setting is fantastic, in the country site, but not too far from Forres and Elgin. Herbie adviced us a pub close to them, where it was superb to have a dinner and a glass of whisky. We had the Tartan room at... More

The Old Kirk is off the beaten path. Well worth finding it. Interior decor is absolutely top notch and the pride shown by Hilary and Herbie is well deserved. The beds were very comfortable such a wonderful quiet area. The bathroom huge. The guest sitting area so beautiful and inviting with the stained glass window and wood stove burning. Love... More

My husband and I booked to stay at the Old Kirk for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding at the near by Brodie Castle.

My wife, daughter and two cousins from Australia stayed here for three nights whilst attending a wedding at Brodie Castle nearby. Before booking I had looked at reviews on this site and found 39 excellent reviews and 1 good. I thought that this place sounds pretty special. We found it exceeded our expectations. The hosts, Hilary and Herbie, were most... More
