We enjoyed two nights at the Mansion House hotel, Elgin - a lovely base, convenient for exploring this very interesting area. Grand surroundings with friendly, helpful staff and relaxed atmosphere. Spacious, comfortable, well-fitted, recently refurbished bedroom with beautiful views. Excellent breakfast - particularly good smoked haddock with poached egg - and dinner with local produce and reasonable wines. Our first... More

I can't review the rooms but as a leisure club member I felt a need to share my concerns. The changing facilities are dangerous, slippery underfoot and mats which are a trip hazard. We've taken few falls this week. The whole place should have been revamped 10yrs ago, it's fallen into such an ugly state. The gym equipment is outdated... More

Thank you for your recent review. We find it very strange that you are reporting falls on Trip Advisor when you could have advised a member of our Country Club Staff when you claimed this happened. We find you comments to be a bit unfair, the Gym Equipment is not outdated and on going maintenance is carried out in the... More

We stayed at the hotel the night before a wedding somewhere else. It took 5 minutes for a receptionist (also the beautician) to get to the desk. When she arrived she was outstanding! She was polite and fun, and showed us to our room. The room was terrific. The bed huge, wooden and comfortable. My wife has a thing about... More

Four of stayed at the Mansion House on a golfing holiday. The hotel exceeded our expectations - very clean with friendly staff and great food. The spa was very welcome after the golf course and the hotel has several excellent courses within easy driving distance. Thoroughly recommend it.

Excellent is not a high enough rating for this place. Its situated not far from the supermarket but in its own grounds with ample parking. The scene that greats you is this beautifully kept house and grounds which is great for a photo opportunity. When you step inside you take a mini trip backwards in time. The Pool area, Gym... More

Lovely huge king size bed, lovely breakfast and helpful staff. Hotel is quite run down in common areas, such as bath mats over worn carpets, and wallpaper peeling off. Staff were helpful but the hotel looked tired.
