The food was no more than OK. More disappointing though was I didn't get a VAT on my visit and since have had to request a VAT receipt on 3 occasions and almost had to force the girl at reception to take my details to enable them to get the required info to me. Still haven't received.

It was my mums hen night and with her being lactose intolerant it is hard to find somewhere that will accommodate her needs when its a large group. The royal not only... More

I need to preface this review by saying that this is the first hotel we stayed at in the highlands. They claim it was the former residence of a whiskey baron. The area is fairly rural and so there are not many options. There are no chains in the area, all hotels and b&b;s are privately owned. We were there... More

Booked into hotel from 23-26 May. On arrival reception staff were first class and we were quickly shown to our room which was excellent. All we needed for our stay. Booked dinner in restaurant on the Saturday night and at just over £60 for three was great value for money. Highlight was the deconstructed cheesecake which would not have been... More

Had a lovely meal here last weekend. We were seated at the large round table by the window so there was plenty room for the 5 of us.The food was superb & lovely presented. Highly recommend this little gem as Elgin has very few good eateries. Lovely clean modern dining room & lovely staff.
