Once you see past the exterior of the hotel the accommodation is excellent. The bar has just been renovated and was beautiful. The room was huge and very clean. The toilet would benefit from a net curtain cause if you didn't draw the blind down all the time you could see outside into the garden. Overall very good and would... More

After having to make a last minute booking, managed to book in here and even managed to check-in early in order to make it to another engagement. The staff were extremely welcoming and accommodating both at check-in and during breakfast. Room was comfortable and very clean with a nice big bathroom however the walls are quite thin and you can... More

Only stayed the one night but wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. The staff are friendly and efficient and the food and service was first class. The hotel has probably seen better days and could do with a refurbishment but to be fair the place has character and does everything it needs for a 1 or 2 night stay, there... More

Room was tiny and dated. Front door would bang from 7am waking us up. Breakfast was extremely poor. Sausage, black pudding and haggis slices were halved and quartered! Potato scone was burnt. Tomato sauce was so watered down with vinegar that I couldn't eat it. Dirty plate and things floating in milk jug. Service was very poor. Young girls who... More

Much needed night away with my friend - using a deal for DB&B. Arrived and headed to room to find a lovely twin room which was very clean, and lovely touch with Arran Aromatics toiletries to use. A few cheeky drinks in the afternoon in the bar was very relaxing, and then off to dinner - in a lovely restaurant... More

We stayed at the Elphinstone for two nights while visiting Biggar for a wedding. There was adequate parking outside the hotel at all times which was very convenient. The hotel room that we were given was spotless and comfortable, small but fine for the price. The bathroom has a good shower. We had also booked a room for another couple... More

Popped in for lunch mid-week and though the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was very disappointing. My cannelloni was definitely not made fresh, the filling was an unappetising grey-green and it was overcooked and the base of the pasta inedible, the Ploughman's Lunch was basically a plate of grated coloured cheddar and about 5 tablespoons of Branston pickle...
