This was a beautiful guest home on nicely landscaped garden. The staff (Mandy) was exceptional. She was attentive and went above and beyond to make our stay a good one. The home is lovely with nice appointments in the common areas. Breakfast was delicious! Smoked salmon with scrambled eggs was a winner! Kettle in the room was handy. We had... More

Welcoming host, beautiful house, everything was very clean, nice breakfast, close to high street where you find Gordon & McPhail whisky shop. We stayed in room 2 which had one window to the side and one towards the front. Parking right infront of the house. Great price as well!

This is a gem of a bed & Breakfast house. The welcome is efficient and warm. Our room had a very comfortable four poster bed complete with curtains and matching side tables. The full Scottish breakfast goes near to busting the English belly but we managed to survive. We thoroughly recommend The Pines.

After a mixup with the booking we were shown to a lovely room (Managers own room). Although the room faced the main road there was little noise. Breakfast was really good and set my wife and I up for the day. A pleasure

I have stayed at The Pines before but a very long time ago and as my partner and I had been invited to a social event in Elgin, I decided to return as it was handy and I knew that the price was good as was the service from memory. We were met by the owner, a very affluent and... More

Our group, which took five rooms at The Pines at the end of October enjoyed our stay very much. I couldn't fault the rooms, breakfast and welcome we received. The Owner and his staff put on very early breakfasts for us, which we needed because some were competing and others were officials at the Scottish National ploughing competition, and two... More

We had a very spacious room on the first floor. It was well appointed and light filled, and we enjoyed the hospitality tray. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful, but I felt that having butterspread in packets rather lowered the quality of the presentation of the table setting and food in the lovely breakfast room. Real butter, in dishes, would have... More

Really lovely big, old house on the outskirts of Elgin. Plenty of free parking. My room was very big and spotless with all you could need inc. free wi-fi. Really nice, friendly folks with time to talk. Breakfast was excellent. To be honest, it is on the outskirts and it took me a good ten/fifteen minutes to walk into the... More
