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.

Very clean, cozy and comfortable! And our bedroom wasn´t too cold (and didn´t have a draft!), which is great in winter! Really lovely breakfast options. Ross and Blair (the owners) are super friendly and had great recommendations in regard to restaurants, taxi services and tourist-y activites.

My husband and I stayed at the West End Guest House a couple nights to be near the Highland Games at Gordon Castle. Blair and Ross, the owners, happily greeted us upon our arrival and assisted us to our room which had been recently renovated. During our stay, they recommended and made reservations for us at two great restaurants that were within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay at the West End Guest House and would recommend to others.

Superb B&B, very friendly, very clean room and dining room, plenty of parking at the rear. Breakfast is pre-ordered in the evening for the next day which allows you to customise your breakfast, good choice. Only stayed 1 night but will be returning.

Beautiful and very comfortable Bed and Breakfast ! The hosts have adorned the dining room with precious art and go to every length to ensure the guests gave a great time. Especially the breakfast "ritual" ensures this. The B&B lies close to the centre of Elgin, only a short walk of 10 minutes away. All the attractions of Speyside can be reached by car. Thank you for the wonderful time !

The entire guesthouse was spotless, my bed was very comfortable, breakfast was delicious and the hosts, Blair and Ross were charming, helpful and kind. My flight was delayed, I had to drive in the dark to the B&B on unfamiliar roads but they waited to check me in and made sure I’d ordered breakfast for the following morning. I’ll definitely be back! The location is perfect for visiting the area - I highly recommend the Glen Moray distillery tour and the Drouthy Cobbler for excellent food and friendly service.

Me and my son were at Elgin-Scotland in August 2022 and we stayed at the "ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC " guesthouse. The proprietors Ross McDonald and Blair Robertson, are really very warm hearted and staying with them gave us a feeling of being at home away from home. Infact on the evening of our arrival there were some travel issues and we reached Elgin and the guesthouse pretty late at night. But, inspite of the delay, the way these two gentlemen greeted and welcomed us with their warm and endearing smile literally took away all that travel stress and has left a permenant positive image in our minds. The property is absolutely well maintained. The lovely garden with a variety of flowers is very soothening to the eyes and mind. For those travelling by their own vehicle, there is ample private parking space available on the back side of the property....so you can leave your vehicle there and enjoy stress free walks /tours in and around Elgin. The room was very clean, neat and tidy. Very cozy beds. We had a real good sleep. The table in the room was well stocked with tea, coffee, sugar etc ...which made the morning quite enjoyable...you know...sipping on a hot cuppa tea /coffee and taking in views through those large windows. The breakfast was fabulous. One can indulge in that absolutely Scottish breakfast or go for the other available options too. Whichever you choose...it is absolutely delecious. The fruits are very fresh and of high quality. Same goes for the meats, salmon etc. You can wash it down with ample amount of fruit juice (various options available) which one can pour from the decanters. What I must mention here without fail is the "Service with a broad smile " and a little chat with both of them that makes the breakfast really very enjoyable. This property is located at a short, walking distance from the Railway station, Main Bus station and the market place ...thus making it very convenient for ones travel plans. Before I end this review, I would like to say : "Dear Ross McDonald and Blair Robertson, me and my son shall never forget you, your warm smile and the lovely way you greeted and welcomed us at such a late hr on that first night of ours". Our best wishes will always be with you. Best regards, Girish and Saumit
