“Truly excellent”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

A really warm welcome upon arrival. The lady took me up to my room (13) a single in the roof area. It was really well decorated, clean and had everything in it you could want. I have stayed in smaller "double" rooms. The lady literally showed me how to work everything,even down to changing the TV channels. Free Wi Fi was exscellent.

Unfortunately, no evening meal but it is only a 5 minute walk into the high street where there are several indian, chineese and of course Wetherspoons.

A good nights sleep, nice hot shower and down for breakfast. Wow, what a lovely room for breakfast, open fire, plenty of space and choice. To say the breakfast was hearty is an understatement. It was superb and just what a working lad needs to start the day.

If there was a down side it was the parking of of other guests. Just a little consideration for others would have meant a bit more on site parking, however you can safely park on the nice quiet street outside.

Room Tip: A true Scottish gem, which is a credit to the owners. Thank you

Stayed one night in a double room on the ground floor of this lovely period house. The room is furnished to a high standard with everything a traveller could conceivably need. The breakfast is really quite outstanding and the hostess charming and helpfull.

I had a lovely small room upstairs, it was very cosy even though a bit dark. The host was nice and they had the best breakfast ever! Big beautiful house, it feels very cosy inside. Thank you for the hosts!

We chose The Lodge because of the excellent comments on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed! Our bedroom, at the back of the house, was spacious, well appointed and spotlessly clean. King size bed was very comfortable and the bed clothes and towels are all excellent quality. Breakfast included a wide choice of fresh fruit and Cereals and the cooked breakfasts - with lots of options - were done to perfection.The lodge has a well-lit and substantial car park and being so close to the centre of Elgin, we chose to walk in to eat and shop.Lots of tourist info is available in the entrance hall and the Guests lounge is very comfortable and roomy. David and Marilyn are exceptional hosts and made us feel very welcome.

Stayed here for he second time this year and to be perfectly honest, we hope to come back as soon as we can. David and Marilyn's home is just beautiful, the rooms are spacious warm and cosy in fact so much so we had to turn our heating off. Everything is spotlessly clean, lots of lovely fluffy towels and we both slept really well. Lots of hot water too.
The breakfast choice is amazing lots of fresh fruit etc and an absolutely delicious full cooked breakfast plus other options, they seem to cater for every possible taste and David is an outstanding chef, very attentive hosts but not to the point of be intrusive, we will not bother to look elsewhere when we return to the area as this house is just perfect in EVERY way, there is absolutely nothing to complain about at The Lodge can't wait to return, many thanks David and Marilyn we had a wonderful time even though the reason for the trip - the Elgin v Rangers game was postponed we had another memorable trip.

Stayed here for one night while away on business. Got a lovely big room with really comfotable bed and the highest ceilings I've ever seen! Lots of space to park the car and just a short walk to the town centre. Got a great nights sleep. I had to leave early so didn't get to have breakfast, so they offered to make me up a sandwich, very helpful.
