This hotel is in a little village local to me. I finally stayed for the evening and was very happy with the experience. Overall it's very good value for money. Asked the receptionist if we could see the wedding chapel. She was very helpful. The room and ensuite were very clean. We were very cold, so happy to find extra... More

We've stayed here a few times going back about 7 years. This was to attend family events which has meant that on our group occupied most of the rooms. This no doubt gives the place a different and more homey feel than usual. It's quiet and on a lovely spot. The staff are not plentiful or overly friendly and my... More

Free Wi-Fi with a good signal throughout. Mobile phone signal not strong, but for a bit of peace this can be no bad thing! Breakfasts could be exceptionally... More

There were some positives from our visit to the Elgin but I'd struggle to recommend it. We saw several female staff who were all very pleasant and helpful when we did talk to them but the hotel seemed understaffed throughout the day and evening - only one on at a time and they'd spend most their time answering the hotel...

We stayed at The Elgin Hotel the night after our wedding, and were not disappointed. We had to call ahead of our arrival to ask if we could bring our young son, as our babysitting arrangements had to be cancelled at last minute. The lady my husband spoke to was very helpful, and offered us the option to either upgrade... More
