Despite the mixed reviews, we enjoyed a very relaxing 3day mid week break last week courtesy of a Dealmonster voucher offer and found it excellent value for money which included a bottle of Processco and box of Milk Tray on arrival. We dined every evening and found the menu varied and tasty.Our room was clean with the only issue being... More

Myself and my partner stayed overnight last Thursday, and what a fantastic stay it was! Hotel is very warm and homely, and the rooms were lovely too! The beds were comfortable and the receptionist was very welcoming. Had breakfast in the morning and what a lovely service there also, a large choice of cereals, fruits and juices accompanied by a...

Spent a Sunday night overnight here with breakfast in the morning. We also eat in the restaurant for our evening meal and can honestly say we have had one of the most enjoyable meals out in a long time. My husband had the steak and it was fantastic cooked to perfection. The hotel is a quent country feel. If your... More

We arrived & were told we'd been upgraded to the honeymoon suite! If that was my honeymoon room I'd have been disappointed. It was nothing special. The food at dinner was mediocre at best. The chocolates in our room were cheap & nasty. The prosecco was lovely though. Breakfast was OK. Would certainly not rush to go back.

Stayed here for 2 nights. It was a Living Social deal and we didn't know the area and feel I must point out the Firth of Forth rail bridge is not as near as portrayed in the picture. You can see it but it's a little drive away. The Elgin is situated in Charlestown very quiet place with one shop... More

Stayed here for 1 night of what was supposed to be a 2 night break (Wowcher deal). Unfortunately we could only tolerate the first night due to a number of major disatisfactions. Firstly, dinner was a disaster and the food was the worst i have ever experienced in a hotel. The food was not fresh, foul smelling and barely edible... More

The bad reports are written by professional whingers or they stayed somewhere else. My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights on a Dealmonster offer and it was very good. Comfortable spotless room with a stunning view of one of the worlds most iconic structures. The awesome Forth Railway bridge, not only that, we could see the result of... More

Decided to stay at this hotel as we hadn't visited the area before and were looking for a midweek break. We were given a good price for the stay, and a lovely bedroom with a view over the Firth of Forth towards the iconic Forth Bridge. The staff who served us, Charmaine and Craig, were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.... More

I seldom can be bothered writing a bad review mainly because i already waisted my time going there and writing a review would just angry me over again. The reception was deserted and looked unloved . The funeral director looking old gentleman who greeted us looked tired and uninterested . As we walked to our room the only thing that... More

We got the worst room with frosted glass window, the bedroom also had a Burgundy tiered back to the 60's look with thread bear carpet and the coloured shower room needs upgrading the only room left and at the back of the hotel,where u can...
