Just a beautiful home. The room was as beautiful and quite huge -- giant luxurious bed, and the whole place is lovely. The host was friendly, and the location is about 1 minute walk from the center of Dufftown. Excellent (vegetarian) breakfast, and there's parking available either on the street (quite safe) or behind the place.

We have stayed at The Elms a few times while working in the Dufftown area. All I can say is that it is a perfect place to stay, and for me who is away from home alot, The Elms is like a home away from home. Thanks Eileen and Chris for being excellent hosts and looking after us so well.

I've stayed there a few times now, and there is no other place I'd rather stay. Eileen is like a mother to us. She always make sure that we are ok. The food is always very good and tasty. The bed is very good as well, I sleep at least as good there as I do at home :)

The only thing we can say is: highest recommendation to stay there! Eileen and Chris made it a wonderful stay, the house is very nice and the breakfast was a stunner - with delicious fresh fruits and several types of cheese - something we only had there during our entire stay in the UK. Have fun in Scotland and Speyside!

We tried a few B&B throughout Scotland this time and The Elms was definitely THE best. The objective reasons being the house is beautiful, nicely maintained, the rooms & bathroom are spotlessly clean, the dining room is very very beautiful and cozy, the host would even make up our room twice a day (which I believe is rare for anything...
