Spent 5 nights in the cottage next to Fairdene B & B. A lovely little holiday cottage, beautifully fitted out and comfy and close to the centre of Ballater for shops and restaurants. On one floor which was a bonus for my husband who finds stairs a problem. Thank you Lisa.

Stayed in the Fairdene B&B during the summer of 2014. Beautiful little self contained cottage, the owners Lisa and Martin live in the family house next door. Lisa and Martin were on hand to advise the best walks, restaurants and other relevant local information. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were delicious and plentiful, private off road parking...

We were after a room for the night but ended up in the cottage which was a real bonus. It was nice to have the extra space and all the facilities were modern. Lisa gave us a warm welcome and suggestions for dinner. In the morning she brought us a cooked breakfast. She does a great job of balancing family,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
