I stayed here for 7 nights while salmon fishing on the River Findhorn, I found a warm welcome from the Hosts. There was good carparking, and the room was clean and comfortable, the towels and bed linen were changed daily. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choice and the staff were very helpful. I think this Guest house was very good value for money.

Stayed 2 nights at the West End Guest Housse in July. The place was ok and have a very good location, close to the city center and with good parking in the back. Room was nice and clean (we had a family room) but not very large. Breakfast was also ok, and it was nice that there were fresh fruit available every morning. On the whole, a good B&B, but nothing extrodinary.

We stayed for one night at the West End Guesthouse and where very pleased. The room and bathroom was big, clean and nicely decorated. It was only a few minutes walk into town and close to the Glen Moray distillery by car. The breakfast was very good and staff very friendly and serviceminded. There was also a very nice garden in front of the house.

Stayed two nights in June 2010 while attending a festival. Location is good, on the main A96 High Street, just a couple of minutes walk from the pedestrianised town centre. Large handy car park at the rear of the hotel. The hotel and gardens are in superb condition, and the welcome was warm and attentive. We were in room 2, which has double and single beds and a view to both front and side. Comfy beds and bedding, LCD TV, clock/radio, tea/coffee & biscuits, nice clean en-suite with good quality toiletries provided. Breakfast was excellent quality, and was served earlier than advertised as we had early starts. Very good filter coffee and "continental breakfast" are self-service, the full scottish, smoked haddock, toast etc are cooked to order and delicious.

All in all, a really pleasant stay. This is the fourth hotel in Elgin we have stayed in, and probably the best value in town.

Rooms were okay but nothing special. The bed was a bit small but rooms were clean and you had all you need. It was close to the centre, about 10 min walk. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of space to park your car at the back of the house. The breakfast was very good. In general I view this as a very good B&B.
