We had excepionally hot days when we travelled Scotland. Hot for more than a week. So we always wanted to sleep with open windows. That ended in nearly no sleep during this night. There was only a short time with less traffic - from 2 to 5 in the night. With closed windows we would have been boiled. The West... More

I normally book a B & B as a last resort if all the hotels are full or are ridiculously expensive. Didn't expect anything special but the West End is special - its the best B & B I've stayed in. Located near the town centre and with its own on-site private car park and a friendly landlady. Big room... More

The West End Guest Hous is located very central. It has an own car park directly behind the house. The breakfast was great. We founded a difference between the prices in the internet and what we had to pay in the end, so the host wasen't that friendly.

Really enjoyable overnight stay in a family room for 3. The room was well maintained and cleaned. We given our own set of keys to the front door and our room. There was a good range of options on offer for breakfast. The full Scottish was great The staff were very friendly.

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at this hotel. There was a good selection of both hot and cold breakfast each morning, and the chef was very accommodating of dietary needs. It was a great value for the money, and a in a good location for whiskey tours and other sites. It was close enough to walk into town... More

We came to Elgin for the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival. We traveled as a group of 6 friends from Turkey. Carol showed that she'd be a good host even before the trip by recommending us "The Guvnor" for transportation. The guesthouse is 4 min. walking distance to the center. It's very clean with a beautiful garden in the front.... More

I stayed at this establishment for one night when I was working in Elgin. Everything was very clean and tidy and the staff were very efficient and accommodating. When you add in the very competitive price for overnight accommodation, I would have no hesitation in making a subsequent booking when I am in the area next.

My husband and I stayed along with another couple for one night only in August. I was expecting more after reading the Trip Advisor reviews before booking. I admit it was a good value for the money but I thought the place was a bit dated and the bed linens and towels needed replacement. The other point we had a... More

Just ideal. Stayed for 3 nights as in Elgin for a wedding. Miles better than a hotel - great personal service from the owner, with no pressure. Ideally located for walking into Elgin. Great parking facilities. Rooms were large and all ensuite which was great - the main thing is that it was very clean and whilst we were down... More

Stayed for 2 nights to visit our son who is working in the area. Perfect location for us and lots of useful information on where to eat etc. Breakfast was lovely, and lots of it! Had poached eggs the second morning, the full breakfast was rather plentiful, the eggs were obviously as fresh as could be and perfectly cooked. Would... More
