The Memorial Rooms are a three-story building, probably associated with the United Reformed Church, built in 1831. Alonong with the Manse on the other side of the building, they are made of local grey limestone ashlar with a slate roof gabled at the ends. The chimney stack is also made of grey limestone and has three old terracotta pots. The building is constructed in the Early English style.
The Memorial Rooms are sited between No. 2 St Peter Street and the United Reformed Church. They project forward from No. 2 and are end-on to the street with an entrance on the south side.
The front of the building is symmetrical with three windows. The gable has a coped gable with kneelers and a finial. There are deep chamfered string courses at the first and second floor levels.
The ground floor has a triple lancet window with three large lights and a continuous hoodmould with label stops. The windows have horizontal glazing bars. The first floor also has a triple lancet window with a plaque at the second floor string course with "Memorial Rooms" carved in Lombardic script. The center light of this window is taller and glazed with diamond leaded panes.
The left (south) return of the building is blind except for a two-centered doorway with a hoodmould. The door has vertical sunk panels and intersecting blind tracery in the tympanum. The rear elevation has two first floor and two second floor lancets with chamfered architraves.
Overall, the Memorial Rooms are a well-preserved example of an Early English style building and make an attractive addition to the C19 group of buildings on St Peter Street.
