The Croft B & B was beautiful and spotless. The bed was wonderful and very comfy. Breakfast was great, best of our entire trip. Close to dining and wonderful pubs. We had a wonderful night and morning.

I cannot recommend this guest house highly enough! It was warm, quiet, and very friendly . Just over four minutes walk and you are in the centre of town. Absolutely fantastic. The owners are as friendly as they come and go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

I recently stayed at "the Croft" with my sister. This B&B is outstanding in its comfort and spaciousness. A beautiful traditional sandstone villa, with a romantic garden and its own set of hens providing free range eggs. Ample parking avalable. The centrally located house is very cosy and beautifully decorated. The hosts are a lovely, friendly and extremely helpful couple.... More

We stayed at this delightful b&b for 2 nights at the weekend. The double romms that we had were very spacious and delightfully furnished. The en-suite bathrooms in both rooms were also a very generous size. This guest house was spotless. The host could not have been more friendly and willing to help with any questions about where to go... More

We had a lovely stay before attending the Highland Games in Forchabers, last May. We shall come back, we did appreciate the cosiness of the rooms and the atmosphere of this well decorated historic mansion.

Welcoming hosts, large comfortable room with lovely garden view. Charming old house. Comprehensive Scottish breakfast on a communal table.. Well located in Elgin. We enjoyed our stay here very much and recommended it unreservedly.

I stay at The Croft when up in Elgin on business trips. Richard and Ann are the perfect hosts. The rooms are large, spotlessly clean, well furnished and very comfortable. A walk into the centre of town where there are many eating places to choose from takes only 5 minutes. You wont be disappointed if you choose to stay at... More

We recently stayed at The Croft in Elgin and were delighted by the spacious room and the bed that easily accommodated my 6-foot-5 husband. The house is beautifully decorated and Ann, the host, is very welcoming. Many restaurants within easy walking distance. Highly recommended.

We recently satyed at The Croft on a self-guided tour of the Highlands. It was our first time at The Croft and a great choice. The hospitality, food and facility were all you could hope for. Elgin is also a great place and location. The city is fine and from Elgin you can explore outward to historic sites and the... More
