The Lodge Elgin was our base for two nights as we explored the Speyside region. We were made to feel very welcome and the service was excellent, from our first introduction to tips about where to eat at night. The room was very clean and well appointed. The ensuite bathroom was also very clean and had all we needed.The Lodge has a nice guest lounge which was a great spot to finish off the day and to plan ahead. It is conveniently located and only a short walk to the High Street and nearby restaurants. The breakfast was the best I had in Scotland with a good range to choose from, plenty of fresh fruit and a range of cooked options.

I stayed recently in the single room. It is far too small to justify a price of £45 per night. There are no facilities to hang either clean or used towels. Breakfast was of a good quality and the hosts were friendly.

Room Tip: Don't go for the single room!

We have just returned from a two night stay at this guest house, and must share with you, what a really good experience we had. Handy location, our room and the rest of the property was very welcoming. Our hosts David and Margaret go out of their way to be helpful. As for the breakfast, it was so fresh, I am sure the bacon was still grunting, and the eggs still clucking. All in all a really enjoyable break, would love to return.

I was working in Elgin for two days and stayed at The Lodge.
A great place to stay if you like your food.
The breakfast was fantastic not only a great choice of dishes but cooked to a very high standard,
with detail being made with the presentation as well.
Being a chef myself it was a delight to have such a great breakfast every morning.It was as good as i have had in many five star hotels and all at a very reasonable cost.

We stayed here for 3 days in May and would definitely return if we go back to Elgin. The Lodge was delightful, with a relaxing ambience. We had a very comfortable, good-sized room with en suite. Our bed was really comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious, with a good range of fruit (which I love), tasty muesli as well as a delicious scottish cooked breakfast (so my husband assures me!) as well as many other choices. The hosts managed that difficult balance of being relaxed and attentive without having endless rules. I would recommend The Lodge for a relaxing stay.

We had a four night stay at The Lodge, which is a very convenient base for visiting our family. It is also well-located for what the town of Elgin has to offer. There were two things in particular that we loved about The Lodge. Firstly, the quality of our room. It had a huge, comfy bed and two large armchairs which meant spending time in our room was pleasurable. Secondly, the breakfasts here are delicious. There is a wide menu of hot food and all we sampled was beautifully cooked. There was also a good selection of fruits, muesli and cereals. Breakfasts are substantial though! The B&B has free wifi and friendly owners. I have stayed at the Lodge before and would certainly choose to stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room on the ground flood sometimes got a bit of noise from other guests passing by and chatting...

Stayed here for one night and was impressed. Had a very good well appointed twin room on the ground floor. The building itself is a big beautiful house set in large grounds.
The choice for breakfast was huge and we could not do it justice. The choice outdid many hotels I have stayed in. Hosts were very nice and attentive.
