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.

I stayed here on a short business trip just before Christmas, and was accommodated in the Annex. The room was decent enough, but the heating was noisy, a radiator located in the corridor keeping me awake as it heated up/cooled down. The reception was odd, in that it never seemed to be manned, and when reporting the issues with the... More

Just a couple of nights at the Royal on business. Our rooms were in the annex, very well appointed rooms, just about everything you required. However, the central heating although very efficient, was noisy, the room/building was very noisy and the walls are very thin and the toilet hadto be flushed at least twice. The advertised internet in the annex... More

A colleague and I stayed here recently midweek for one night. After a tiring day of work and travel we were greeted by a friendly member of staff and shown to our rooms which were in the adjacent annex. Two identical rooms, one on ground floor and one upstairs. Rooms very clean and with more than adequate facilities. We had... More

We went to this hotel for an evening meal. Its some of the best food we have had. The restaurant is beautiful, well presented just gorgeous. The staff were first class, nothing too much for them. Great value for money. Really recommend this restaurant you will not be disappointed. Treat yourselves!
