Having had a Mother's Day gift of afternoon tea at this hotel I thought it would bea nice idea to bring my son & his lady for an evening meal last night. The hotel claimed to have vegetarian and vegan choices: we didn't see anything vegan on the menu and the vegetarian choices were very limited and rather unexciting, though...

Thank you for your review, which we have all found disappointing. We rarely receive negative comments on our food, and I would encourage you in future to address these issues with the staff at the time, so that we may rectify the situation for you, this is much more beneficial to both parties. I have discussed your comments with my...

Just returned from Eight Acres Hotel after a weekend break. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms were a fair size with comfortable beds. Meals were good but the menu for dinner and breakfast packages could have a better choice. The bar meals looked good but you had to pay for this as it is not included...

I liked the trip advisor certificate displayed prominently on the wall showing 3 1/2 stars. And the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, who, despite looking a little careworn as the next sizeable coach load disembarked for one night, were still kind. The leisure centre staff were also friendly, the pool great and changing facilities clean. The bar staff recommended...

My wife, son and I had a two night break here and I must say we thoroughly enjoyed it. The family room was a great size and everything was very clean. We enjoyed the food in the restaurant. The restaurant was very busy one night but the staff made a special effort to see that we were not overlooked. WE...

A pleasant place to stay. The staff are very friendly, though some of the waiting staff could do with a little more training - perhaps they were new. Manager was of great help and available should I have needed her again. The rooms were a nice size, the bed was big and comfy but the walls were so thin, it...

We stayed in eight acres for 3 nights for our wedding anniversary. The hotel was in good location to explore area and surrounding areas. Rooms are spotless, slightly small but perfect for what we were looking for. The leisure centre was great loved the pool, so quiet and relaxing. We found all the staff very pleasant and welcoming however we...

Such a disappointment. From the website it looks as if the hotel is relatively modern in decor however my single room was tiny and in dire need of refurbishment. The single bed was very uncomfortable, walls paper thin, ensuite shower poor. Food in the restaurant was expensive, bland and undercooked. For £68 per night I found it very overpriced and...

Thank you for your review. All our rates include bed, full Scottish breakfast, complimentary use of our extensive leaisure facilities including gym and indoor swimming pool and complimentary wifi, at some £20-55 cheaper than our local competitors for single rooms they do indeed represent value for money. Over the last year we have upgraded curtains, carpets, bathroom floorings and bathroom...

There isn't a lot of place to eat in elgin so we thought we'd try the eight acres. The waiting staff need more training in customer service and instead of every waiting staff serving a table there should be one to make it seem more personal. The menu seemed really nice whilst reading it but when it came to the...

Thank you for your review. We run to specific waiting staff ratios and with such a busy restaurant (over 70 covers most evenings excluding the bar) all staff must interact with all our customers, I am sorry that you feel this is inappropriate. I am unsure how trays are more hygenic for clearing however this is not policy from a...

We both really enjoyed our stay @ the Eight Acres Hotel & Leisure Club, Elgin. The breakfast was excellent, plenty to choose from & the staff were very helpful. The only drawback we had was the bedroom had the sun most of the day & it was very warm, room 11 if u want to avoid it.
