“They saved our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

We had checked into another hotel but we were relocated because that room had no heat and they were full.

When we arrived at Laichmoray they knew about our inconvenience. We were greated by Gavin the manager. He said he would make sure that we had a good stay. He showed us a couple rooms and let us pick ours.

The hotel was very nice, the beds were comfortable, and the rooms were spotless. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fantastic. They spent 30 minutes trying to find us a ride to Dufftown for the whisky Festival.

They made us feal like we were the only guests. They also recommended a fantastic side trip to Lossiemouth, a beautiful sea town.

My daughter recently held her wedding and reception at the Laichmoray Hotel. The couldn't have been more helpful right from the initial enquiry until after the big day. They bent over backwards to help with my daughters long list of requirements and went above and beyond what they needed to do. They were friendly, efficient and flexible and the food was terrific. They made us feel special and I would definitley recommend them to others. Friends and family got good rates to stay over and the only small complaint was the variation in standard of room provided as one of the couples had a very small room while another had a large one with four poster bed etc (for the same money).

My family and I stayed at the Laich Moray for my sister's wedding and we could not have had a better experience. The hotel itself is situated near a rather busy roundabout but please, don't let that put you off as the traffic noise within the hotel itself is non existent and there is fantastic parking out side too. Its a ten minute walk from Elgin high street, literally just up a hill and your there!! Its over the road from the train station with trains direct to Aberdeen and Inverness.
The Hotel staff and amazing and very friendly, the rooms are also very well turned out with free wifi and an ipod docking station available for you too. The bars and restaurant are very good as well. All in all the Laich Moray is a fantastic hotel and in my opinion the best in Elgin. We had a fantastic wedding reception too.

Room Tip: Higher floors better views

We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed a lovely meal in the restaurant arriving on our first night. Staff very friendly and attentive. Breakfasts were good, again very friendly staff, excellent attention paid to customers. Our four poster room was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. Only downside room looked onto roof of hotel so there wasn't a view but we didn't mind as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely would return. We originally were going to book the Superior Room but as it was on the fourth floor and I was unable to climb so many stairs due to my health we opted for the four poster room which was very nice.

Room Tip: Advisable to check where room is as there is not a lift

Visited the hotel for an over night stay on business. Greeted by a friendly receptionist and checked in very quickly. The room was comfortable and free wifi was available. The bar was nice and friendly hoever I was surprised there was no Tenants lager. I had a good night sleep in a comfy bed and no road noise or delivery noise early morning. The breakfast staff were very friendly and food was very tasty, very decent coffee.

My company have used this hotel for years for seminars and training plus the Christmas bash for the local office. Having presented a training course a few weeks ago i decided to stay and sample the delights of this establishment.

The Hotel is very attractive from the outside and i just love the Old Albion Truck now used to display a magical bed of flowers.
On entering reception i was processed efficiently with the appropriate amount of banter for an afternoon. Thumbs up for the check in.

My room was no 47 right at the top of the house, i opened the door and all i could see was an ipod docking station, Bose! no less. This was just pure magic, ipod docked with my favourite tunes belting out.

The room was large, new carpet and decor throughout the toilet is huge which houses a fantastic shower.

The Hotel is only minutes walk from the station(across the road) and very handy for the town centre.

I must say that this Hotel rates amongst the best that i have rested my weary body at.

Pros. Large Room, Bose Docking Station, Clean vibrant decor, staff, handy for station and town centre, price.

Cons. None

Overnight business trip, the highlights were the extremely friendly and helpful staff and a recently refurbished room that had been upgraded to the highest standard. It was a real pleasure yo stay here after a long drive. Very comfy bed and luxury bathroom. There was a premium to pay for this particular deluxe room but it was well worth it. Good food too. I will stay here again, the staff ate the best I have found in Scotland so far.
