The host is a very nice person, friendly and willing. We were very lucky to get the big bedroom with a double bed and two single beds, although we were just 2 people. The room was huge and cosy, the bathroom fine as well. Our friends had a very small room which seemed more like an old garage than a... More

All rooms have the same price, but some are much bigger than others, some have really old furniture, others more new ones. We got a room that was not the cleanest one and it was old. You could see that it had been a garage before. Didn't enjoy the stay at all! Way too expensive for what you get!!!! Paid... More

Demand payment straight away which I suppose is fair enough. The breakfast is just terrible - cheapest tat that can be put on a plate (you may also... More

Stayed here two nights 16/17th March and can't believe previous reviews! Karen was a perfect friendly hostess, rooms absolutely spotless and cosy and lovely ample breakfast. Perfect location as right in the centre of Elgin. My room had a very comfy bed, fridge, large flat screen tv, hairdryer, tea, coffee, shortbread and soap and hand cream in the en suite... More
