“One of the best, if not the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2010

Arrived and got shown into and around my room, booked a single and was given a very large room with a double bed and a single and was to take my pick lol LCD tv with DVD player lovely fresh en suite with shower. The breakfast was more like a large hotels than a B&B with Kellogs individual cereals, amazing bowl of fresh fruit cocktail then a lovely full cooked breakfast great quality of ingrediants used not the cheap grub you get at some establishments, and fresh filtered coffee none of this instant rubbish. Will use again it is a wee tad more expensive than others but I really would pay the extra for this establishment. Plenty of room in the drive for a host of cars, Also has free Wi-fi which is always handy. Only 2 mins walk away from Elgin town centre.

An excellent place to stay, comfortable, well appointed rooms furnished to a high standard. The bathrooms are very well equipped. TV with DVD and selection of DVDs in room. Wilma Rodger is extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast are superb, all the best ingredients and generous servings. Choice of two breakfast rooms, dining room or garden room. Have stayed twice and Moraydale is on my highly recommended list for B&B in Scotland.

Moraydale is well situated only a few minutes walk from the centre of Elgin. Wilma made us feel very welcome and the room was very comfortable, the free wi fi was a bonus. The breakfasts were lovely and a varied choice was offered.The smoked haddock and scrambled eggs were delicious. There was ample parking and if parking at the back of the house was full you could park at the front.. The only mildly negative point would be if you are used to no noise at night and like your window open ask to sleep at the back of the house as even with the double glazed windows the traffic could still be heard at the front.
All in all a very nice guest house and would definitely stay here again,

Bhoyed up by my extremely pleasant stay at Daviot Farmhouse B&B near Croy,Nairn I decided to have another foray into the B&B sector.
Once again I was pleasantly surprised at the fantastic value for money compared with the meagre offerings I previously encountered in the 4STAR Hotel sector at Forres and Aviemore.

I had been at a function at the Sunninghill hotel, (the food there was very good) and decided to try the 4 STAR Moraydale B&B for a change.

Our room was clean,freshly decorated and spacious at the rear of this large well maintained B&B in the centre of Elgin.There was a tray stocked with a kettle and nescafe granules and tea bags and some biscuits.
The ensuite was new with a roomy shower.

The proprietrix Wilma was accomodating especially when dealing with special dietary requirements if the huge platter of fresh tropical fruits and natural yoghurt provided to the guest at the next table was anything to go by.

On offer were the full English Breakfast and porridge or cereals. There was also some fresh fruit available too.
Unfortunately,there were no yoghurts left as the couple at another adjoining table had removed all 6 cartons but Wilma soon provided more.

This is a very good value 4STAR B&B,miles better than some 4STAR hotels in the locality at half the price. The B&B sector is well worth trying.

Simply put... we chose to stay at the Moraydale Guest House after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and were definitely not disappointed! We stayed for a total of 4 nights. Wilma made it feel like our home away from home.

The rooms were tastefully decorated, comfortable and had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious! Wilma always seemed to have information that we needed at her fingertips, whether it was directions, restaurant recommendations, local news or weather forecasts... The location was perfect and the Guest House is beautiful!

Thank you for the wonderful hospitality Wilma! We will be sure to come back and stay with you the next time we are visiting family in Elgin.

Hope we haven't missed anything!

Cheers!

Last minute B&B blitz in Elgin and fortunately we came across Morydale. The place was clean and inviting, breakfast was great with a larger selection than other B&B's. Can't wait to come back and this time around we're making reservations.
