Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a gem of a b&b, it has a perfect location with a brilliant host and is great value for money. I am a single traveller and although I knew my room did not have an en suite the private shower room was just across the hall. Breakfast is not provided but there are plenty of place to eat within a five minute walk. The single room was small but adequate and importantly everything was spotless. I have no hesitation in saying this place was perfect and recommend it

Although we found the room very clean on arrival we feel that the room needs some updating and the beds creeped that much we never got a good night sleep. New beds and mattresses are needed as the mattress was very uncomfortable

Very cosy and comfortable place to stay! We checked out today after 4 nights sadly we didn't get a chance to meet the owners but every day we went out the refreshments had been topped up! It's very spacious rooms as we had a toddler it was a bit difficult being on the top floor but we managed! Sadly the website states free breakfast but isn't offered anymore but thankfully we had family to go to! Would 100% stay here again however as it was very well looked after and furnished and super comfortable!!! Nikki Krylonsky

A charming guest house, very close to the centre of Elgin. We were on our way to the big music festival in Elgin this past weekend when the hotel we booked, phoned to cancel less than 30 mins from our arrival. Frantically searched on line and found this gem of a place where the owner couldn't have been more helpful. Fortunately for us a room had become available last minute so our weekend was saved. Comfortable, clean and cosy rooms. No breakfast offered anymore but there are local cafes in the town centre a few minutes away as well as a Tesco with a cafe. If we come back for the festival next year, I would definitely try to book here again. Wifi and Free parking. Thank you John, much appreciated.

Response from John Jordan, Owner at Elgin Guest House
Responded 22 Nov 2021
Hi, I’m sorry that you remember things differently to our conversation, As you were aware the arrival time is from 4pm, as you arrived early the keys hadn’t been made available for yourselves! I would never have offered breakfast, we haven’t offered breakfast from the start of covid, our prices were lowered from £75 to £60 for a double room to help our customers to make arrangements for breakfast before they arrive, I also explained that you could enjoy a breakfast at Tesco’s new restaurant a 2 minute walk at the rear of our property I did explain that breakfast would be available again from 11th November bookable on arrival, we have now implemented this option. Ps we are not and never have been advertised on Booking.com at £60 including breakfast..

This was one of the pleasantest stays I have had on my travels. The owner must have taken it over fairly recently and has obviously put a lot of effort making it a pleasure to stay there. Our room was spacious and has a double bed and two singles. We used the singles, which were firm and comfortable. Unusually, I slept right through the night. The en suite shower room was a tight fit but that is being remedied. Breakfast was excellent. You what you want and, the time, the evening before. We both had a full breakfast. They were well prepared and could have kept us going all day. Next tine I'm in Elgin, this is where I will try to stay.

I had booked in three friends visiting from London, they were delighted with their welcome, their rooms were clean spacious and very comfortable and they were very impressed with the exceptional breakfasts. Great location, value, and definitely the place to stay.

Although the Guest House is close to the Elgin Shops our major concern was the cleanness and presentation of the room. When we went to go to bed at night we noticed ladies blond hair on the pillow slip and when we pulled back the duvet cover there were stains on the sheets. This gave us the instant impression that the room had not been serviced after te previous guests. Issue was raised with the hosts. Yes they changed the pillow slips and sheets BUT still feel bed needed to be changed/ checked prior to our arrival. I would not recommend this guest house to others.

Hi Dennis. The staff and I really appreciate you taking the time to review our lovely guest house. Your issues were only mentioned to us the day after you arrived! Before you arrived the rooms were all completed to the usual top specification by our more than capable staff and are always checked by myself after the staff have completed them and no issues were found! I also asked you if you would like me to arrange different accommodation for the remainder of your stay and your reply was no because you were more than happy to stay with us for the full 3 days! We would like to thank you for your other comments and hope that you will visit us again.
