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

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.
