    I like the Laichmoray, it reminds me of a bygone age. It's comfortable, unpretentious, with friendly, helpful staff, and above all good old fashioned value for money. Dated, stuck in a 70's, 80's, time warp, absolutely, all of that and I love it, it makes me smile. It fits me just like a pair of well worn slippers. You know... More

    Dated hotel needs a complete revamp. Food is expensive for what it is. Rooms can be very small.particularly the ones in the top of the hotel. The only saving grace is the staff who are all very friendly and helpful. And the breakfast

    Have stayed a few times and am always met by friendly and obliging staff. Breakfast very good with excellent porridge. Rooms a bit dated but clean and well-appointed. I like it as a base for work and leisure in Moray

    Great Stay. Very comfortable bed which provided a great night sleep. And added bonus was the great water pressure so a lovely shower and didn't have to wait hours for the bath to fill. Food was lovely, fresh and fast friendly service. Would definitely recommend for business stay or short trip. Decor could benefit from updating but was very clean... More

    Have stayed in many hotels in Elgin but this was the first time in the Laichmoray and certainly won't be the last. Nice clean rooms.lovely hotel but the breakfast was the best we have ever had in any hotel we have stayed in. And that includes Hilton and sheratons well done the Laichmoray.

    Have been coming here for years and the quality is still amazing. The staff are super friendly and the food itself is 5 star. Never disappointed when I come here. Had left it far too long since the last visit but will be returning sooner. Well done laichmoray 🌟

    For such a busy night they do very well to serve the food piping hot and quickly. Staff are helpful and attentive. Disco music was a bit hit or miss though. Bar area is a bit cramped with so many people.

    The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are being upgraded and the hotel is in a very good location with plenty of parking for town. It's unbeatable for value for money and I would recommend and will re-visit.
