“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

I’ve stayed at this guest house a good few times and I’d have to say it’s on off the better places to stay in Elgin. Clean, tidy Affordable and friendly just what you need when your away. It is very central to the town centre and theirs a good breakfast in the morning waiting for you. To anyone wishing to visit Elgin don’t go past this guest house because it’s just fantastic, and if you do well it’s just your own fault.

Room Tip: the whole place is lovly.

Just returned from a week in Elgin where we lived at Southbank Guesthouse. It was a wonderful experience. The room we stayed in was really nice and the breakfast was great.
The place has a very cozy atmosphere.
Certainly hope to visit the site again

The greeting we got was very friendly we were soaked to the skin with the scottish weather and Isobel dried our clothes in her tumble dryer for us. This was above and beyond any guest house or hotel service. Nothing was any trouble they even directed us to where we could get a good meal up town. Would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: I only stayed in the one room as far as I know they have many rooms or differing sizes so they cover...

This is our 2nd time staying here and once again we will be sorry to leave. Isabel and staff cannot do enough to make sure you are happy guests. The breakfast is amazing and our room is very clean and comfortable. It is just a short walk into town but house situated on a very quiet street. Can't praise it highly enough.

Really impressed with this guest house, My wife mother and children were up visiting my brother in inverness and decided to stop at southbank guest house on the way up. Which turned out to be a brilliant idea. We received a warm welcome upon our arrival a very clean set of rooms and one of the best breakfasts I have had outside of a 5 star hotel. Thanks for a lovely stay Isabel, we will see you on our next visit up North.

Room Tip: Take your pick all the rooms we stayed in were perfect

I called to book a room a very few hours before getting to Elgin and was thoroughly impressed. The owners were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was great and the room was clean, comfy and superb value, particularly for an en-suite. I work in the travel industry and I would absolutely go back. Thanks very much.
