We stayed for one night in August. The location and room were excellent, a very relaxing night after a long days travel. We had a family room even though there was just the two of us. The hosts were very helpful and the breakfast was very good. I thought that the price for the accommodation was very reasonable, when compared... More

Spent a very pleasant night in The Pines Guest House. The room was spacious, tastefully furnished and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and to top it all, the tariff was surprisingly low. Situated in an area where the east, north and west coasts are accessible, this guest house is well worth another visit.

Our reason for staying in Elgin was to attend the Highland games at Gordon Castle and to explore the area, and this was a good choice for three nights. A very nice room in a spacious and airy house with the perfect full Scottish breakfast. Late arrivals did disturb one evening, but otherwise everything was fine. An enjoyable stay.

I do not want anyone else to find out about this Gem of a guest house. The victorian feel high ceiling rooms give a very airy and grand feel to the house. The bathroom was spotless and the room was imaculate, very homely and tastefully done. The bed was a dream to sleep in and because of this I will... More

This bed and breakfast is clean, superbly comfortable with good food and a friendly host. I have stayed here twice now and each time had an excellent experience. Although the house is on a main road it is set back (good parking in the grounds) and we were not aware of the traffic.The rooms are generous sizes and the beds... More

The house is beautiful, the hosts and staff were friendly. our room was spotless big, bright & airy. We had a king size 4 poster bed it was beautiful. Breakfast was lovely and even had a vegetarian option for myself. We have stayed here twice and will return again.

Very cosy B&B in Elgin, easy access from main road, owner is friendly. Rooms are nicely furnished, very nice beds and very clean. Good coffe, tea, chocolate and bisquits upon arrival will make your day/evening- especially after all day long drive. I have stayed there several times, always 1 night only and it was always a quiet good night sleep.... More

What a disappointing welcome. I got 'a telling of' as soon as I entered the guest house for ringing the bell conveniently placed at the table on entry (It might be helpful to remove it if you don't want it used). When no-one appeared I turned round and noticed a button that advised ring for attention which I did do.... More

We'd stayed at The Pines a couple of times before when the previous owners had it and enjoyed the stay. We were originally put in room 6 at the back of the house and this had some steps in the room, and all other rooms were occupied. Because of my wife's slight mobility problem, this was not the ideal option.... More
