This lovely B&B will now be our standard of what a B&B should be. It’s ideally located within walking distance of downtown, Stanley Park and other interesting neighborhoods yet peaceful and quiet. Bikes are available(free of charge) for guests to use. We stayed in the standard Queen room for four nights and were very comfortable. The bathroom, although not large,... More

Made a surprise (for a family member) trip to Elgin. West End proved to be an ideal place to stay. Excellent room; well appointed. The breakfast was one of the best I've had in a B&B. This will be a stopping place on future visits to the area. Literally ten minutes from the centre of Elgin on foot. A large... More

Loved my one night stay in this well furnished and great value guest house, the room was clean and comfortable and decorated in a very contemporary style which was refreshing. The breakfast was first class, I recommend the full Scottish breakfast to get you started on a long day. The busy A96 is located just outside the guest house, however,... More

Traveling through Elgin on our trip north by car, this B & B was chosen because of the on site car park and the proximity to the town centre. The room was quite nice but lacked any space to put a suitcase which is often what you find in this type of accommodation. Yummy breakfast though.

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
