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.

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

Central Elgin with two minute walk to the High St. A great plus was that we could park our camper van in they back of house car park. Excellent Full Scottish breakfast included... More

What a brilliant welcoming experience, I stayed at Southbank Guest house evening of 6th Oct, I travel allot and most often on my own for business, Isobell welcomed me into her Guest House as if I were a member of the family, truly warming experience. I would highly recommend this guesthouse if you are in the area. Kindest regards Kirsty

This guesthouse is close to the town center, has large rooms, is very clean and includes a good breakfast. WIFI included. Our hostess was friendly and very helpful. An excellent place to stop while touring the Speyside whisky distilleries. Walking distance from the train station.

We stayed at the separate annex, which was pleasant and right next to the main building, where breakfast is served. The room was a bit on the cold side, apparently not unusual during the Scottish "summer." The annoying bit was no functional wifi for the entire evening and early morning. We had to go to the main building to get... More

This guesthouse is perfectly situated near the High Street and other amenities on a quiet vehicles access only route in Old Elgin. There is plenty of car parking space off street available and the room allocated for me in the Annex next door is exquisite and very clean. The landlady, Isabel, is welcoming, friendly and an excellent source of information... More

This guesthouse is 2 or 3 minutes walk from Elgin centre. The rooms are very clean, staff friendly, and a great cooked breakfast is provided. There is ample off road parking behind the property. Happy to recommend the place!
