Habitat is situated in a quiet courtyard near the village centre. It is a purpose built hostel with superb facilities. There are a mix of shared bunkrooms and private family rooms. The hostel is ideal for groups or single travellers.
Osborne House is the home of Heather and Neil Allan. It is a pretty Art Nouveau styled Victorian house with a pillared verandah set in a large garden on a quiet road but close to the shops and restaurants in Ballater.
