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

Having dined in this hotel on numerous occasions was disappointed with our stay.The room was quite small and there was an annoying buzzing noise which went on for a while then off again.The view from the room was over a back garden which was a mess. 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

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
