Located looking over the Firth of Fourth. Bedroom and bathroom in need of an update. Breakfast staff very polite and professional and very organised with a willingness to please. Breakfast was a traditional Scottish breakfast with usual toast, fruit juice etc served with a good supply of coffee. Rooms were disappointing.

Arrived at hotel late afternoon very welcoming lady at reception we were offered our bottle of wine that we were getting with the deal, but the lady said we could have it with our evening meal which was good. Our room was lovely and quiet looking over the fourth. We went to the bar for a drink before our evening... More

As we had a walk in the area we booked a Groupon deal and were not disappointed. We had a lovely room (11) one window had a sea view with the side window overlooking the village green. A very nice spacious room complete with an iron and ironing board. A nice touch was 2 bottles of water and a little... More

Went for a high tea with the family. Good points - good portion for the main meal and it was well cooked. Not so good points - had to ask for tea spoons for the tea cups, basic service, no refreshments without having to go and ask someone, tea not topped up. I've had some good meals here but was...

We recently got married and at last minute our venue was closed, queue The Elgin hotel to the rescue. With only 10 weeks to go the management team and staff bent over backwards to help us have a great day. They ensured we didn't have to feel the pressure at such short notice giving us the menu we had previously... More

We stayed in room 4 which had a nice outlook over the river. It was well equipped and clean and we weren't disturbed by any noise outside or inside the hotel. The bathroom is a bit dated and the shower isn't very hot at all. I don't like a hot shower but it was even too cool for me and... More
