During the holidays my girlfriend and I stayed for more than a week (!) at this lovely and friendly spot, and it could have been two weeks. Blair and Ross made us feel home within a minute - though it was our first time in Scotland. The room, the breakfasts, the chats about what to do (or not): it all...

I recently spent two nights at the West End Guest House in and must say that it is my favourite place to stay in Elgin. This bed and breakfast is conveniently located just a few blocks from the city centre. New owners Blair and Ross have carried forward the establishment’s reputation for quality and excellence. The proprietors are friendly and...

The Guest House itself is very nice and within walking distance to town. The bedroom and bathroom big and comfortable. Breakfast was just as I would expect for the price -which I think is too much! BEWARE!! of check in, check out and breakfast timings! We were asked to check in after 6pm. We arrived at 6.25pm and one would...

This house is really typical from this region. It's a good place to visit all the distilleries from Speyside region. The welcome of the owners is warm and with a lot of advices. The rooms are very clean but the bathroom are a little bit to small for a room for 3 persons. You need to taste the full scottish...

I stayed here as I was working in the area. It was a very nice and well equipped B&B. I had a very good sleep in a comfortable bed which was then followed by a lovely breakfast. I will be sure to book it again when I am back in the area. Well done!!

New owners Ross and Blair were very friendly and accommodating. We were their first guests but you would never have known it based on the service...they seemed like pros!

Stayed here for 1 night, and I actually booked 1 month late by accident! But the host was VERY nice and allowed me to stay. The room was gorgeous and extremely clean, and I slept like a baby after working late. And the breakfast was immense. 100% be back. 😃😃
