Melted Brie with onion chutney to start for both of us, sticky chilli chicken for hubby and I had one of the specials- Thai chicken curry with sticky rice and hand cut chips- it was beautiful! Creamy, spicy with a wee kick to it. Best restaurant meal I have ever... More

Stayed here for one night on business and also ate in the restaurant. Found the hotel to be very good. Pleased with every aspect. Clean rooms, good service, attentive staff, good breakfast. Only criticism is that reception isn't obvious enough.

Visited this hotel last night for a meal, we received a friendly greeting on arrival and were seated promptly. The food was served in a reasonable time and was delicious. Best meal I have had out in a long time. Staff were all friendly & chatty which made it even better. Highly recommend.

Stayed at the Royal Hotel in Elgin, staff very friendly. Room was spotless with all you could want for a two night stay. Shower cubical was a little on the small size or I am a little on the large size. Breakfast was excellent with no hanging around. Possibly the only down side is the road noise in the early... More

Stayed for 1 night as part of a business trip and therefor cannot comment on price. However the hotel is a nice little place with plenty of character with coves and angled roofs etc. I had a room on the 3rd floor and it was massive. The beds are huge and very comfy - great nights sleep! Bathroom was modern... More

Here for a family break in Elgin, with the Royal chosen after reading reviews on here. The rooms were well appointed and clean. Breakfast was excellent although tea in a large pot on a heater and coffee from a machine in the corner. A pot of tea or a cafetière on the table would make this 5 star in my... More
