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!

Lovely house, recently thoughtfully and very tastefully refurbished. Excellent en suite bathrooms. Very comfortable beds. Quiet location, just a stone´s throw from the town centre. Breakfasts fresh and tasty. Thank you, Mrs. and Mr. Reid and... More
