Traveling through Elgin on our trip north by car, this B & B was chosen because of the on site car park and the proximity to the town centre. The room was quite nice but lacked any space to put a suitcase which is often what you find in this type of accommodation. Yummy breakfast though.

We had excepionally hot days when we travelled Scotland. Hot for more than a week. So we always wanted to sleep with open windows. That ended in nearly no sleep during this night. There was only a short time with less traffic - from 2 to 5 in the night. With closed windows we would have been boiled. The West...

I normally book a B & B as a last resort if all the hotels are full or are ridiculously expensive. Didn't expect anything special but the West End is special - its the best B & B I've stayed in. Located near the town centre and with its own on-site private car park and a friendly landlady. Big room...

The West End Guest Hous is located very central. It has an own car park directly behind the house. The breakfast was great. We founded a difference between the prices in the internet and what we had to pay in the end, so the host wasen't that friendly.

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at this hotel. There was a good selection of both hot and cold breakfast each morning, and the chef was very accommodating of dietary needs. It was a great value for the money, and a in a good location for whiskey tours and other sites. It was close enough to walk into town...

We came to Elgin for the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival. We traveled as a group of 6 friends from Turkey. Carol showed that she'd be a good host even before the trip by recommending us "The Guvnor" for transportation. The guesthouse is 4 min. walking distance to the center. It's very clean with a beautiful garden in the front....

I stayed at this establishment for one night when I was working in Elgin. Everything was very clean and tidy and the staff were very efficient and accommodating. When you add in the very competitive price for overnight accommodation, I would have no hesitation in making a subsequent booking when I am in the area next.

My husband and I stayed along with another couple for one night only in August. I was expecting more after reading the Trip Advisor reviews before booking. I admit it was a good value for the money but I thought the place was a bit dated and the bed linens and towels needed replacement. The other point we had a...

Just ideal. Stayed for 3 nights as in Elgin for a wedding. Miles better than a hotel - great personal service from the owner, with no pressure. Ideally located for walking into Elgin. Great parking facilities. Rooms were large and all ensuite which was great - the main thing is that it was very clean and whilst we were down...
