We were looking for a short break where we could take our Labrador. An online search suggested The Elgin Hotel. It turned out to be a charming little place, located in a beautiful wee village with a harbour. It is worth taking a camera as lots of photo opportunities. The only drawback was that like most hotels we couldn't take... More

An extremely friendly atmosphere and very dog friendly. Our pup stayed in the room and the staff put in a sofa bed for her. Views from the room across the Forth and of both bridges. Food beautiful prepared and served and Proper portions well worth a stay don't expect over fancy but a lot better than the plastic modern hotels.

Had lunch here a few weeks ago and thought I'd visit again as ok last time, liked the views. Had the breaded fish and although the breadcrumb topping was a wee bit dark brown, the fish was tasty enough. However, a bit mean with the chips could have done with a few more. My mum who normally always has to... More

Spent a night here and thought it was well worth the money. The staff were very friendly, the setting was gorgeous and the room was clean and tidy but not "boutique hotel" which suited the setting overlooking the Firth of Forth. Our bedroom was cosy and warm, the bed very comy and clean and tea, coffee, biscuits etc in the... More

I attended the hotel a couple of weekends ago, and had a lovely time. My room was fresh and clean with bottles of water, usual tea/coffee etc. Shower was great, and had a bath as well which some people prefer. The staff running the wedding made a huge effort and input to make this personal and I know this really... More

Small rooms, if there is a party below YOU ARE going to hear it. Breakfast was tasty but not a lot half haggis, half black pudding, single bacon, Single sausage. Some of the other guest complained about the cleanliness of the room, hairs on pillows / beds etc. it's definitely recommended that when you're shown the room you check it... More
