We were in Biggar for a wedding and chose the Elphinstone as it was very close to the wedding venue. We found Biggar itself a quirky little town with a very friendly population. The hotel, whilst not the cheapest we have stayed in for roughly the same on offer, was very good. We were informed on arrival that there were functions on both evenings we were staying and apologies were made in advance for any noise we might hear. We kept our window closed and this proved to be no problem. The room we had was a twin and there was plenty of storage space. The bathroom had a large shower cubicle and was well kitted out with toiletries. We ate in the restuarant on one evening and had a very nice meal. The menu really does offer a gourmet's delight. Breakfast on both mornings was to our satisfaction. Good selection of cereals, toast and again a good selection of jams, fresh tea and coffee and a cooked breakfast. One morning we opted for just scrambled eggs and bacon and the eggs were light and fluffy and two rashers of bacon, all freshely cooked.
The staff knew that we were going to a wedding and very kindly cleaned our room first so that we could return after a stroll to get ready. We had been given a whole set of fresh towels which was much appreciated.
On the whole we found our stay a good experience. The staff all seem very happy and I think that this comes across to the customers. We would certainly stay there again if we found ourselves in this part of Scotland
