“Absolute gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We recently stayed in the self catering holiday cottage at Fairdene B&B. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts. Fantastic accommodation with everything you could possibly need. Very modern and stylish and spotlessly clean. We were provided with an excellent cooked breakfast. We could not fault our stay in any way and have already booked again for next year. Thank you Lisa!

My wife and I stayed in the holiday cottage for 3 nights recently, and have to say enjoyed our stay. The cottage has an oldie world charm from the outside, but is contemporary and spotless inside. There is off-road parking and free fast Wifi available. Close by there are pubs, a fish shop, cafes and various shops.
Our hosts Lisa and Martin provided us with a hearty breakfast each morning, and were helpful in suggesting places of interest for us to visit etc, and we thank them for making us welcome.
We can recommend Fairdene as a B&B as it is peaceful and ticks all the boxes.

We stayed in the holiday cottage for a week in August. The cottage has been done up very modern and is lovely and clean. It was also very cosy and I can imagine lovely and warm in the winter. It is nice to be so near to the village so you can just come and go as you please. Very quiet and so very peaceful. Ballater in itself is a hidden gem, surrounded by mountains with the beautiful River Dee running through it and so many walks and stunning places to explore.

We used the self catering cottage that it part of the B & B and it was very comfortable and well equipped. Free wifi is included and the location is delightfully quiet. Our host was very welcoming and we highly recommend this property. We have also used the B & B herre as well and it's equally good as is the breakfast served.

Fairdene offers stylish accommodation at very reasonable rates. The owners knew how to make us feel at home and their attention to detail is to be commended. I loved the extra touches like heated floor in the bathroom, twix biscuits in a jar by the tea/coffee and the best bit was your own fridge with water and also a pint of fresh milk to make your morning cuppa - perfect. Would also recommend choosing the fruit salad for breakfast - it was delicious!

Stayed here for 1 night during a tour of Scotland. Offroad parking was a real bonus. The house is extremely well furnished. The room was comfortable with a great view of the mountains. The bathroom was a good size, very clean and had a great shower. Only a short walk into the village. Breakfast was great with a lovely fruit salad for starters followed with a well presented cooked breakfast. Owners were very friendly, great place to stay.

One of the friendliest B&Bs we've ever stayed in. Clean, comfortable, and really peaceful central location. Just about perfect!
