The hotel is in Biggar High Street which is a lovely little town and very convenient for Edinburgh. I use the hotel regularly. Great friendly staff who are always helpful. The restaurant serves great food and good value prices.

This hotel is a historic hotel and has been owned by Robert and Janette for the last 25 years. You can be sure of a warm welcome, an extensive menu and reasonably priced food. The public bar has been modernised this year and is lovely. Visit during the colder days and enjoy a drink around the open log fire.

Love going to the Elph, food is really good as is the service, could stay there all afternoon by the fire if my kids would let me. The manager and the staff are fab and attentive. Great any day of the week but can imagine being there on a cold day by the fire with a nice bottle of wine... More

The breakfast service was atrocious although the cooked breakfast was nice we had to... More

£82.00 for one night in what can only be described as a hell hole. The room I was given had no windows and and was so cramped it was claustrophobic. The bed and pillows were extremely uncomfortable with the mattress having a plastic sheet - classy. The only plus side were the young waiting staff who were friendly and efficient.... More

Very friendly staff, I knew my family had a booking and I phoned the hotel to ask if they could add a bed to my family's room as I planned on paying them a surprise visit. They were very accommodating, it was no problem. The restaurant was also very nice for an evening meal.
