"Great Service"
We decided to stay at Auld Kirk because we expected something "different"; B & B in an Old Church is nothing common; unfortunatelly our room was showing nothing of the Church and we were a little disapointed even more as we realised that dinner is not served anymore ; in addition Ballater itself and its Restaurants seemed also not too charming to us. Fortunately the breakfast room and food itself incl Service were great and so was our mood. Read less
Likes:
Breakfast , Bathroom, Service
Dislikes:
Bed, room itself was not charming
Response from THE AULD KIRK:
We are pleased you enjoyed your breakfast experience. In terms of our rooms, we are not a themed hotel and so do not put fake church items in the rooms as some guests would find this off puttng. Our rooms are clearly displayed on the web site you booked with. It is clear that you are in a church as soon as you enter the building however as we have a pulpit, stained glass windows and chruch furniture in the lounge as well as the church like dining room

"Sheer enjoyment"
Stayed at the Auld Kirk - unfortunately only for one night. Ballater is a really nice clean friendly village in a beautiful setting. Read less
Likes:
The room, bed and public areas of the Auld Kirk were tasteful, welcoming and comfortable. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast - freshly cooked and delicious.
Dislikes:
My only point is that the shower didn't have much water pressure.
Response from THE AULD KIRK:
Thank you for your very nice comments and we are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Thank you also for pointing out the shower presssure. I have checked this and there is a fault with the shower. We have just installed a new pressure water system and it has been working really well up until now so we are getting this one changed this week. Thank you once again.

Response from THE AULD KIRK:
Thank you for your positive comments and we are pleased you had a pleasant stay with us.
As regards our operating status and other issues I would advise that all potential guests check our own website prior to booking where we make it quite clear what we offer. Unfortunately we cannot police all external agencies and inevitably some inaccurate information will still be published although we are constantly trying hard to resolve this issue.

Response from THE AULD KIRK:
Thank you for your comments. All our other double rooms have king sized beds and are larger than the room you stayed in. We are however going to put a king sized bed in that room but that will not be for a few months yet. I do hope it did not spoil your enjoyment and thank you for taking the time to write a review.
