Great welcome with offer of complimentary tea and home-made biscuits (absolutely delicious). First-rate freshly-cooked gourmet breakfast. Very pleasant staff. Bedroom was stylish, comfortable, and well-equipped. The Auld Kirk is an interesting building a short walk from the centre of Ballater, with ample parking in a quiet side street. The price was the highest I paid on a touring holiday, but... More

This old Kirk has been lovingly transformed into a small hotel. You check in at the pulpit and can have a drink at the small bar surrounded by church furniture. The bedrooms are very well appointed with luxury bathrooms. It was fun to have the gourmet breakfast while sitting under the arched, stained glass windows. The owners are a very... More

I stayed at this charming B&B early this month. Attentive and caring staff, plenty of on street parking, and a recently remodeled bathroom are the pros of this place. Close to Braemar for the annual Braemar Royal Gathering.

Very warm welcome, nice room, and delicious breakfast. The hotel is confortable and well equiped. To stay in an old and real church is completely original. Not far from the Balmoral castle neither than the Royal Lochnagar distillery.

We did not have the pleasure of staying at this darling hotel due to a confusion with our bookings ( completely my doing). The staff went out of there way to help us find accommodations during an extremely busy time. I can't thank them enough, what great Scottish hospitality.

We stayed just one night however we were delighted with the accommodation good size bathroom and the dining room where a great breakfast is served is a beautiful setting. The parking is on street but not at all inconvenient and the owner was very friendly and helpful. We thought the conversion from a former church had been done tastefully and... More

We stayed here two nights on a trip from Inverness to Edinburgh. The old church has been converted tastefully and has a cosy and comfortable feel. It was a five minute walk to the centre of town where there was a choice of restaurants and bars. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

We really enjoyed our stay at this B&B, it was complete luxury after 2 days of camping. Not only were the rooms modern and clean but the staff were also more than helpful, particularly when they helped me clear away some broken glass from the bottle of prosecco that I managed to drop at my car. The breakfast was one... More

We had a great weekend stay at the Auld Kirk. The owners are very welcoming and friendly and serve a first rate breakfast with several options- much more than you would usually expect. The rooms are very nice, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Definitely recommended!
