£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

I visited this hotel with my mummy for Sunday lunch after going a 10 mile walk I was starving the staff gave me a dog bowl with my roast beef in it. Very dog friendly hotel. I would recommend to all my doggie friends. My mummy loved her dinner too. 5 stars

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.

During a three day stay in the area we dined at this hotel every night.. The food was very good, with plenty of choice, on the three evenings and also reasonably priced. Service was fast and efficient. No hesitation in recommending.

The Elphinstone is a quaint hotel and we received both excellent and friendly service. Room 3, if you are claustrophobic, is not recommended as there are no windows. We stayed in room 6 which was very good and very clean although small. Room 6 is at the back of the hotel and we noticed a beer garden. The beer garden... More

Tip: book a table in advance! The place was packed for Sunday lunch. Staff were superb, if there was a lull you could see them glancing around proactively looking for things they could do to help. Spotlessly clean. Food was lovely - everyone cleared their plate at every course! Minor quibbles with several specials being off without being warned in... More

The food was tremendous - no other word for it! This hotel deserves six or seven stars for the kitchen alone - it's a shame it isn't just a restaurant The room (Room 6) was too noisy; loud laughter and shouting from the beer "garden" - a first floor patio - until nearly midnight on Saturday meant a really poor...

We were on our way back from a long, hot day in Edinburgh and were needing somewher to have an evening meal. Stopped in Biggar in the off road parking area and saw the Elphinstone Hoptel - not the best looking building, but after a look at the menu board outside we decided to enter. Its much bigger than it... More

A bit dated which is reflected in the rooms. Comfortable enough but could go with a makeover - staff were generally helpful and pleasant. Food was ok in the evening but breakfast was not so good. Would probably consider other places if I came back to Biggar but hopefully they take on board these comments and look to improve.

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
