Clean room,well cooked food and friendly staff, all at a bargain price. There was entertainment every evening and whilst most it was not to my taste, the other guests seemed to enjoy it enormously, so it's probably me. I feel I should mention the staff again as their friendliness and wish to help seemed totally genuine rather than the false... More

Mr. Cameron I was extremely concerned to read your comments regarding your recent stay with us as I feel this is not an accurate reflection of what happened and is also insinuating that we are not dog friendly at the Elgin when in fact we have many regular and new guests who enjoy bringing their dogs to stay with us...
