On arrival the owner, Wilma, and her two young grandkids greeted us at the door. There is a lock on the door, which required a security code to open. Wilma told us the code and her grandson eagerly showed me how it worked. We stayed in a triple room (queen bed and single) with breakfast included. The room was on... More

An excellent guest house with a welcoming and helpful owner. It really stands out compared to other guest houses around it. The room was perfect for two people and the en suite was so handy. Breakfast was delicious,the full Scottish is highly recommended! In the morning we weren't rushed out and I was able to leave my car in the... More

Easy to find, easy to park. Lovely room- warm, cosy, and spotlessly clean. Wi-fi didn't work for us, but nor did we do anything about it. Breakfast was really good. Freshly made porridge, full cooked breakfast, cereals, fresh fruit salad, filter coffee - all excellent. Staff welcoming and efficient. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at this B&B on the way back from far north Scotland. It is easy to find and has parking in the back. My single room was reasonable in size, the bathroom too. I liked the double bed :-) I really did not feel up to the eggs for breakfast and the staff very easily made me some porridge... More

This is a comfortable and friendly place to stay only a few yards from the centre of Elgin. My wife and I stayed for several days whilst visiting our son and family. Breakfasts at Moraydale are lovely and freshly cooked with plenty of options. My favourite was the "Full Scottish". We will definitely stay again the next time we visit... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this well kept B&B. Room was quiet though the main street through Elgin is in front of the house. Parking off site was useful. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. What impressed me most was the room. Very well arranged and designed. The bathroom refurbished quite recently. The ladies of the house were very... More

Our second visit to Moraydale and as enjoyable as our first. Wilma runs a happy ship. We had a comfortable room and we were well fed at breakfast with the excellent choices and quality produce. See you next year!

Booked this randomly via bookings.com. Great location and large car park. I was greeted promptly despite arriving at 7.45pm. The room was at the rear and nicely decorated. There was lots of room and power points. Wifi was complimentary and was very quick. I had pre booked a restaurant and the manageress gave me clear directions to it. The room... More

moraydale, Owner at Moraydale Guest House, responded to this review

I am disappointed you did not enjoy your stay with us this time and I note your comments about the size of the room. But you did in fact book my only single room which obviously is not going to be large. However, it does easily accommodate a double bed which most guests find preferable to extra floor space. In...
