Stayed here on the recommendation of a colleague. Arriving at the venue I began having second thoughts, how I wish that I had cancelled and gone elsewhere. Greeted with a sign at the bottom of stair that breakfast served 7.00 to 8.30. No reception area and no lounge to relax. Female who was pleasant, said " are you Roger, your... More

I stayed at the Elgano on the weekend of the 12th 13th December. I organised a group of 16 to stay in the hotel and everything went perfectly. The rooms are clean and a great standard for the price, especially given the great location which is close to the station and town. We all ate in the new Italian restaurant... More

The hotel is about 20 minutes walk from the city centre and near a lovely park. I stayed in a single room, with a double bed, on the 1st floor. The room was an reasonable size and spotlessly clean. The bathroom appeared to have been recently refurbished and the shower strength was fantastic. The storage available was more than adequate... More

We stayed at the Elgano so that my daughter could take part in a swimming meet at the International Pool. The pool doesn't have any accommodation nearby, so we're always on the lookout for affordable places to stay. We had a twin room with a view of the cricket ground, and all was fine. What made this good was the... More

The hotel is located nearby to the city centre (20 min. walk) and offer B&B. There is free WIFI, but the signal was no so strong and the free parking lot is limited to few cars and the entrance is from the back door on another street with an intercom access device. (preferably you should enter in the parking lot... More

Stayed here for the first time, we had a nice welcome when we arrived. Stayed in room 6 at the back of the hotel so was quiet, very disappointed with the room although very clean, it was very small, and a bit overpriced at £95 for the size of the room. Hardly any storage for clothes, shower was very nice,... More

We stayed here for one night for a friends wedding. Really lovely staff and decent breakfast, the room was a little tired but it was clean and unique. This place has character and makes the most of what it has which is a lovely location with close access to Bute park (perfect shortcut) and the city centre. Much bigger B&B... More
