Booked in for 5 nights but ended up only staying for 4 as I finished earlier than expected and only had to pay for the 4 nights despite my lateness in letting them know I wouldn't need the room so it was very kind of them. I had room 9 it was very quiet and I slept well. I am... More

I stayed for two night 24th and 25th June to I could attend the Piping championships in nearby Forres. My room (No5) was clean and warm. The bed was two singles pushed together hence a join exactly where I would like to have slept and obviously would not be present in a double bed. Disappointed both in and out of... More

I fully enjoyed my weekend at Southbank, with delicious, filling breakfasts, a clean room and en suite, and very friendly staff. My last morning there, I didn't have time to sit for breakfast before leaving to catch a flight, but they were kind enough to wrap up a bacon roll for me to take on the road.

Very friendly and helpful proprietors with good knowledge of local sights of interest. Good breakfast in comfortable surroundings although gluten free requirements were not understood but with help this was satisfactorily produced. It did provide good wifi. Sadly though our stay was let down by one or two things. There was no hair dryer in the very comfortable bedroom, but... More

Stay was very good, breakfast was excellent. If I had one thing to complain about was the shower, it was very slow and pulsed when down at a temp u could tolerate. I stayed in room 10. Other than the shower I would recommend this guest house to anyone.

Southbank Guest House i Elgin is a great place to stay, if you are in the area. The rooms are clean and nice, the full breakfast is tasty (if mayby not so healthy) but the best thing about the place is the service. They are very nice and open and treat their guests with warmth and humor. Highly recommendable.

8 guys on a trip to visit Speyside distilleries who stayed at Southbank Guest House in may 2016. We had a wonderful time here. Extremely friendly staff and we felt very welcome. Rooms were great, breakfast was excellent and you could get extras of whatever you wished. Southbank Guest House is just nice and very "homely". As we were 8... More

The owner and her staff made us feel welcome with their kindness. It was easy to feel relaxed and the breakfast was good and plenty of it. The rooms are nice and clean. The guest House is located near the center of the City, so we could easily walk out for dinner and shopping

I've slept in this place more than 8 weeks, with a irreproachable service room made daily, except weekends. Coffee, tea, Tv, nice rooms (I slept in 10, 1, 8 room) so it was a great time in there. Full wi-fi.

We arrived slightly late but this was not a problem with our keys easily available and a representative come out to welcome us. Parking located at the back was convenient. Rooms were nicely renovated and nice and warm. They were more spacious then we were expecting. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was great. Although this isn't a 5 star... More
