          Good size room

          Fire alarm went off 3 times whilst there for two nights. Twice in the army hours of the morning. Phone also rang at 6 am. Restaurant and bar closed on a Monday. The shower is not the greatest despite a new bathroom. They need to work on the pressure

          The excellent dining, friendliness and courtesy of staff

        • Older travelers

          A beautifully converted church with just 6 rooms.The friendliness of the staff, and their helpfullness was excellent, and the evening meal, cooked "on the spot", from a small, but very attractive menu was fantastic. Being on the main Ballater rd. it was easy to find. I wouldn't hesitate in booking in in "The Auld Kirk" again, or recomending it to friends.

          It was unfortunate that they didn't supply the evening meal on Sunday evenings, especially as the weekend is a popular time for casual visitors.

          Very comfortable and quiet room with a degree of character. Very modern bathroom/recently re fitted.

          Very limited parking on site and not much space (although parking on street available not far away). Room not overly large - but a single traveller, so didn't affect me too much.

          Food was absolutely excellent, service very good and it's a wonderful area to stay in and to explore.

          The room was well appointed but I didn't find the bed terribly comfortable and it was rather warm overnight.

          Lovely building,comfortable room,lovely staff,excellent breakfast and a beautiful part of the world.

          Food was good but was more expensive than was justified by its quality.It was not true fine dining and £25-30 would have been more appropriate than £35 for a 3 course dinner.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The breakfast was really excellent and the waiting staff very good The building was unusual and quirky but our room seemed a bit austere - quite masculine!

          We stayed 4 nights. The owners were not around and noone to greet you on arrival. The restaurant it seeemed was what they were interested in rather than the B&B side of the business. It felt like we were left to it - for instance the premises were locked on Sunday and we were the only ones apparently in the building during the day and at night? Also it was advertised that the restaurant would be open on Mondays and it wasn'T. This was in August when presumably it should be peak time. Nothing really wrong with the premises but it lacked the personal touch - the ladies who did breakfast and the housekeeping however were really nice.

          Excellent breakfast

          Much too expensive. Unfortunatley we couldn't try the restaurant for dinner as it is closed on mondays. The rooms are old fashioned and have nothing to do with a church.

          Very friendly staff. Easy stroll into centre of village

          A very nice church renovation with nice rooms and lovely food.

          Every aspect of the hotel was very good. Dinner and breakfasts were very good. The staff we met were very friendly. Overall a small high quality hotel with an excelant resteraunt.
