We were not in the room we had originally booked but the alternative we were offered was great. Ideal location for Elgin - for the shops and the station. Isobel is very helpful and breakfast was fantastic.

We stayed here as my 93 year old father-in-law's family originally came from the area. I spoke to Isobel and rather than allocating us rooms upstairs she put us in the downstairs rooms, right next to each other. Rooms were warm and comfortable, breakfast was fantastic. I would highly recommend. A warm and friendly property. Gladly stay again.

I fully enjoyed my weekend at Southbank, with delicious, filling breakfasts, a clean room and en suite, and very friendly staff. My last morning there, I didn't have time to sit for breakfast before leaving to catch a flight, but they were kind enough to wrap up a bacon roll for me to take on the road.

Very friendly and helpful proprietors with good knowledge of local sights of interest. Good breakfast in comfortable surroundings although gluten free requirements were not understood but with help this was satisfactorily produced. It did provide good wifi.

Stay was very good, breakfast was excellent. If I had one thing to complain about was the shower, it was very slow and pulsed when down at a temp u could tolerate. I stayed in room 10. Other than the shower I would recommend this guest house to anyone.

Southbank Guest House i Elgin is a great place to stay, if you are in the area. The rooms are clean and nice, the full breakfast is tasty (if mayby not so healthy) but the best thing about the place is the service. They are very nice and open and treat their guests with warmth and humor. Highly recommendable.
