Very clean bedrooms and bathrooms, kept warm in freezing weather. Comfortable beds. Wide choice at breakfast,with good food, well cooked by friendly staff. Central location with private parking - a bonus in Elgin's narrow back roads. Very good value for money.

This guest house is far better than the photos portray. It has everything that is required, a comfortable ensuite room, free wifi and a wonderful breakfast included in the price. The staff are friendly and helpful. I will definitely return if and when I am back in the area.

This is the second time I've stayed at the Southbank Guest House. We chose it the first time because it was a central location for travelling to distilleries in the Speyside area. The place has had a facelift since my last visit two years ago. Modern without being over the top. It has a cosy, family atmosphere. Breakfast is filling... More

I booked here last minute and paid £70 for a double room for one night, including breakfast. Given the price I didn't expect much but I was pleasantly surprised. We were given a family room which was very big and pleasantly decorated in neutral colours, although simple. The room and bathroom were very clean. The bathroom had a little damp... More

We paid a lot for an attic chamber but the beds were lovely and clean and we had a modern "looking" bathroom. Unlimited hot water and good wifi in the room. Breakfast was very extensive with lots of fruit but maybe this was because it was a Sunday morning? Within walking distance (+/- 5 minutes) from the city center.

When you write a review about a guest house you must remember that this is someone's home or business. The Southbank Guest House is a typical stone built house in a sought after area of Elgin within short walking distance of the town centre suited for everyone disabled or not. The house itself has an annexe attached with 3 bedrooms... More

Exellent position in Elgin, both near the Railway Station and the Town Centre. Isabel Malcolm and the staff were very friendly. The bathroom and bedroom were both modern and clean and had all the facilities that we required for our trip. We checked before we arrived to ascertain if we had to bring our own hairdryer and were informed that... More
