Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Our only problem for our one night stay was our wifi connection. We could not get an internet connection in our room even after the staff tried to help. Worked fine in the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Thank you for your kind review and we are very glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We know there is poor service in some areas with our WIFI and this Tuesday we are getting new access points installed which hopefully will solve the problem. Enjoy the rest of your trip to Scotland. More

Lovely hotel, rooms well decorated and cosy. The restaurant menu was extensive, with lots of variety and reasonable prices. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and the bar staff certainly know their whisky!

We had both been at this hotel for meals and family events in the past and on every occasion the food had been spot on so it was an easy decision for us to have our wedding reception (42 guests approx) here. Everything was perfect. Fantastic and plentiful food, and good choice of menu, hot plates (mother of the bride... More

I was recently working at Lossiemouth and was booked into this Hotel by my company, I have found many of the Hotels seem to suffer a lack of water pressure with the result that you have to work hard to get a decent shower so I was pleasantly surprised when I booked in to the Sunninghill to find a half...

I stayed at Sunninghill during a 3 day visit to Elgin and surrounds to explore family history. It was a very comfortable stay in an older but updated and clean venue. The restaurant downstairs was good, if a bit more expensive than I had expected for rural Scotland. The staff were helpful. I would recommend it.

Thank you for your kind review and i am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Although you found our menu slightly on the expensive side I hope you enjoyed your meals. We do try to use best quality local meat and fish which is more expensive. Hope we shall maybe see you again sometime in the future. More

Again we choose the Sunninghill for a special night. You guys never fail us, the food was first class and the service genuine and sincere. Both of us had a real wonderful evening before we set of for our wedding and honeymoon. Big thank you to Polly.

My family of 4 stayed here one night in rooms 17 and 19. Nice, comfortable rooms with large and comfy beds however an extra pillow would have been ideal. Decor was a little dated. The Hotel itself was smart and well maintained. The dining room and cocktail bar particularly good. Food was excellent. Both evening meal and breakfast were superb.... More

Stayed one night, in a ground floor room which opened off the car park and suited us well. It was simply but attractively decorated and had comfortable beds and a spacious modern en suite. The staff were helpful and let us leave our luggage early so we could go and explore the town, which is only a short walk away.... More

Thank you for your kind remarks and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

We still cook all our breakfasts to order rather than have a buffet service... More
