Perfectly pleasant guest house stay spoiled by a very cool welcome - no introduction or welcome at all. It was our fault, we were late and had clearly ruined the owner's weekend. Oh well, the service at breakfast (not from the owner) was great - as was the food.

This place is amazing!! We cannot fault this place at all!! Spent a long weekend here with the family on the 15th May. The house was perfect, everything from a spacious kitchen for everyone to hang out in, quiet lounge where kids could watch DVDs, giant dining room for meal times, games room for the kids and a large lounge...

We stayed at this B&B for 3 nights during our 'single malt whisky trail' of 7 distilleries. Enjoyed it very much; great service, kind people, excellent breakfast and very well equipped rooms. Close to town center of Elgin (10 min. walking distance). Recommendation for everyone!

For business purposes we booked a room at this guest house. We booked over the internet and received a conformation email which stated we had reserved the room but needed to pay on arrival. Whilst on the way to the guest house we received a phone call stating that our reserved room had been given away to someone else. THIS... More

Being along the main road and with sufficient parking on-site this was a convenient location for our Schotland tour. A stop-over on the way to Inverness, with very famous Johnstons of Elgin woolfactory who offered an interesting free tour. The owner was very friendly and showed us the room, but was a bit vague about dining opportunities. We did not... More

The Pines Guest House is an elegant home, conveniently located, and with an easily accessible u-shaped drive. The rooms are large (we occupied 3 of them) and beautifully appointed. Our host was friendly and helpful. We got off to a good start the next day with an excellent breakfast.

Beautiful house. Bedroom was spacious with a wonderfully comfortable bed, a lush duvet, tea & coffee facilities with biscuits. Toiletries were provided. There was an excellent breakfast - fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt, and a cooked breakfast menu (with vegetarian options). Five star.

We spent several nights at The Pines Guest House with family & friends while in Elgin for a family wedding. The owner and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The house is in a perfect location for exploring the area and within easy walking distance of the town. The house is bright & airy, tastefully decorated and the bedroom was... More
