Ok, I'm very biased. Over the last three years I have stayed here at least 10 times when I'm up on business and this is a composite review of all of those stays. Not difficult as every stay has been a real pleasure. The positives: great and I mean great rooms. Full size sled beds, luxury white and chrome bathrooms, brilliant service and exquisite locally sourced food. Parked in acres of it's own grounds, next to the river but bang in the middle Elgin. I have never had anything but a pleasurable time. The only gripes? Trivial stuff but here goes: the bar is very small and not really convivial to unwind in. The staff can be a bit thin on the ground in reception and aforementioned bar. The health club has seen better times, with the steam room and male changing in desperate need of a refit; and that makes a huge contrast to the beautifully fitted and decorated bedrooms. That's about it really. I actually loom forward to working at our sites there, so I can stay. And that says it all. Ps lookout for the taxidermy badger on the first floor landing. All of us call him Cedric.

My husband and I stayed at the Mansion Hotel during the Scottish Open July 2011. This place is wonderful! The rooms are just exquisite. We stayed in room #2. It was decorated in shades of red with a 4 poster bed, a small living area with a couch and two chairs. The view to the river behind the house was charming! The bathroom was spotless with both a shower on one end and a bathtub on the other! Perfect! We ate dinner in the hotel resturant and the food was very good. The staff was so helpful and friendly both in the reception and in the dining area.
I would highly recommend this hotel

We recently got married at Mansion House and we cannot express enough how fantastic this hotel is. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The setting of the hotel is beautiful for photos at this time of year. The rooms are stunning and very clean. Everyone at our wedding commented on how excellent the food was and the choice. It's caters well for families. However there are some parts of the hotel that requires some attention but overall we had a fantastic experience at this hotel. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

The hotel and surroundings are lovely. The room was ample size with a big bed and top quality finishings. There was no noise at all at night and the thick curtains kept the room dark. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was exceptional too.

I've been to Elgin many times before but have never before stayed in the Mansion House, however, after our stay this weekend this will be the only place we stay in future.

The staff are very friendly, especially the lady who was serving breakfast (she had glasses on I don't know her name) and the lady who cleaned our room.

Our room itself was idyllic, we stayed in room 24 which had patio doors out to the gardens and to the river. The lounge is a lovely setting to chill out for a while and you really can't see or hear any of the neighbours.

All in all, we were sad to leave!

The hotel is well situated, and looks amazing. it's a little mansion converted to hotel and basking in green, a little river nearby. My room on the ground floor had a door that opens straight into the garden and river.
There is a pool,and lovely lounge. The rooms are clean, with a huge 40" LED TV,DVD and free Wifi. with a gorgoues bed and lovely bathroom, all clean and heated.
Location is also very good, not fat from the centre of Elgin, and Tesco.

Room Tip: Get a ground level room. next to the garden

We so enjoyed our one night stay at the Mansion House that I am actually writing my first ever review! Our welcome was very warm and friendly, I have to mention Nicoya who was so very helpful and informative and soooo pleasant - what an assett!!

Our room was stunning and absolutely spotless as was the huge en -suite.
Our dinner was delicious.
We met some lovely couples and enjoyed a great evening!

Breakfast was a feast, again I have to mention Peter, I think the Night Porter aswell as Breakfast waiter, he was so cheery and chatty, just what you need to brighten you up in the morning.

One last thing, I have to comment on a rather stilted review from Homeswee 22.4.2011

How on earth does having a Tesco in the near vicinity affect ones stay at the Mansion House? We have stayed at many hotels in the Highlands some a great deal more expensive the Mansion House is certainly excellent value, we hope to return very soon.

Thank you so much for your review on your recent stay with us, here at the Mansion House Hotel.
It's great to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay and like yourselves we couldn't understand why having a Tesco in the vacinity made any difference to a stay at the hotel.
We have passed your compliments to Nicoya and Peter who are indeed tremendous assets!
Than you again and haste ye back!
