“Cream of the crop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

We spent two nights at the Elms and absolutely loved it. Eileen gave us a warm welcome and as we were the only guests we could choose which room we wanted to stay in. The rooms are nice and comfy, the decor is in proper style of the Whisky theme but not overdone. There was a good choice of breakfast options and the food was great. When we couldn't get a hold of a certain distillery to arrange for a tour Eileen and Chris managed everything for us in a matter of minutes. It's definitively two thumbs up for the Elms and the hosts!

Thank you so much to our hosts, Chris and Eileen for your walking the extra mile for us! Your hospitality, friendliness and extra care is unheard of. Thanks for the lovely breakfast, the clean rooms, the "preparation" of our rooms for the night when we were out and your nightcap! We will most certainly visit you again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "mortloch" room which was facing the street. Good choice indeed if you wa...

We've visited Speyside the last week of October 2012. It was our fifth trip to Scotland in ten years time. The Elms was our last B&B and what a surprise. From the first minute you feel very welcome. The house is exceptionally beautiful. The rooms are very comfortable and the dining room is impressive. Eileen and Chris looked after everything. They gave us small attentions, but also detailed information of what to do in the region and how to get there. Of all the B&B's we've stayed, this was by far the best.

I cannot say enough about our visit to The Elms. It truly was "the gem" of our visit to Scotland!! The B&B was exceptionally well-appointed and MOST comfortable, and our hosts went "above and beyond" in looking after our needs!! Chris and Eileen were fantastic, from the initial dram to our departure. They obviously knew the area well and were most helpful in advising our visits to the distilleries. As one party has noted: It "beats the best"... I hopefully look forward to a return visit!!

We loved staying at The Elms. Eileen and Chris were hugely welcoming and friendly. They offered lots of local knowledge, and a home with all the comforts you'd expect from a top-rate B&B.
We'd definitely recommend you stay with them.

fantastic Bed and Breakfast in Dufftown! very nice and lovely old house, beautiful rooms and fantastic hosts.

We stayed in the Glenlivet room which is very comfortable. Breakfast (typical schottisch hot breakfast or continental breakfast) is very good too. Our hosts Eleen and Chris were very helpful on what to do in Speyside and overall very caring hosts...

We can definitvely recommend this B&B!

What a find. My pal had stayed here a few weeks before and insisted that we returned here and I now know why. Beautiful house and wonderful hosts to go with it. The welcoming dram was a great start to our whisky tour. Eileen was so careful to meet our needs and helped arrange one of our distillery tours. She even rang one distillery to get them to tell us that we had left something behind. I'm a staunch carnivor but even I cannot fault the excellent vegetarian breakfast. Thanks for a great stay.
