A very pleasant little B&B to rest your head for the night. Decor slightly 'old fashioned' but adds to the character of the historic building. Owners very friendly and breakfast was delicious. The quality of the fresh produce was clear. Good location in Banff for walks to the harbour & high street. I would stay again if ever passing through... More

Once, in the 1700's an admiral had taken over the Carmelite buildings. I think he is gone by now, but we came: The norse invation of Scotland by bike. We had two nice, old fashioned double rooms. Our shower was in the old closet, like in any other old building. The single room had the shower in the corridor. All... More

This guest house is right in the middle of Banff with easy access to the harbour, shops and pubs and a parking facility round the back. It is an old building with two floors, and I had one of the only two non-en-suite rooms (there is a shared bathroom and toilet facility for those two rooms) which was £36 per... More

We stayed one night on our week long driving trip. The room was spacious with comfortable beds for one adult and two children 10 and 15. Breakfast was hot and fresh. Good shower and towels too.

This is a rather old and listed building dating from the 1700's, therefore don't be expecting all the modern conveniences. While road works at taking place on Low Street drive past the road closed sign and take the first ally to the right to the parking lot.
