Very good and welcoming guest house on the main road to Inverness. There is a spacious parking lot in the back of the house and there are good restaurants within walking distance, not to mention the Gordon & MacPhail shop five minutes away with the huge stock of malt whiskies from all parts of Scotland (and the rest of the...

I've never met such a kind and nice landlady! Warm welcome, lovely room with en-suite facilities, excellent and delicious traditional Scottish breakfast. Totally recommended! Only negative side: weak Internet connection from the room (possible to use the dining room if needed).

Booked this B&B as Elgin is good location for visiting whisky destillerys in Speyside. Very easy checkin with Carol. Quiet room. Very clean. Service excellent and so is the breakfast. You could have almost everything you wanted. We went to Glen Moray witch is in walking distance. Wifi was good except for in our room as it was out of... More

This B&B was booked for me by my company but it's certainly one I would ask for again! My room was at the rear of the property and no noise intrusion from other guests or outside. Ample private parking, free wifi, nice shower room. The room is beautifully decorated in neutral tones. I arrived quite early before work but it... More

I've been travelling to Elgin for business for 15 years so have stayed in just about every hotel and bed and breakfast in the town. I wish I had found the West End Guest House many years ago. Easily the nicest owners and best service I've had anywhere. Lovely,clean, room and excellent breakfast. Without a doubt the best in town.... More

Booked directly with the B&B last minute and from the first call, we got the homely feeling. As we had to drive some distance and was not arriving till late, Carole kept in touch and even waited up for us to arrive. It was explained that the room was "Wee room"however we was greeting to a lovely double bed with... More

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
