We bought diamond package through balance the body salon for a gift for my mum and aunts birthdays, they said it was excellent and were treated like queens, the bedroom was beautiful, the food was great and the treatments in the salon were excellent, I would highly recommend!

Staff were excellent and we enjoyed breakfast and dinner. Room was well below that expected. Above the pool area it was hot, stuffy, smelt of damp and pool and, despite us being very used to hotel rooms, hindered a good nights sleep. Yes to the hotel. No to the room - number 17 I think.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are sorry to hear that Room 17 did not meet your expectations. Admittedly the room can be on the warm side on occasions as it is above the pool area, but we have never been advised of a damp smell from any guests or housekeeping staff. We hope that... More

lovely rooms, service good and very friendly staff. We did not have dinner but breakfast was first class. Public areas such need attention as carpets very worn and paint / wallpaper coming away from walls. We would return but only on a discounted deal as rack rates are not representative of the property.

Thank you for your review regarding your recent stay.

A lovely, romantic, Victorian B&B located in Elgin which is surrounded by Scottish whiskey distilleries. Perfect location if you are doing a tasting tour. The en-suite rooms are spacious and individually well decorated. The staff is very helpful and professional and the restaurant provides excellent Scottish food, although the wine list needs improvement. The snooker table was lots of fun.... More

We stayed in the connecting rooms 18 and 19 and really enjoyed visiting the Mansion House Hotel and the region around Elgin. The hotel rooms were very well decorated and had nice furniture, good beds. Old school, but very charming. So is the lobby, the drawing room and the restaurant. We loved it. The other shared facilities need some refurbishment,... More
