Great food and a comfortable stay
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 Oct 2020
We had a few nights here during a slightly eased off period of the Covid-19 lockdown. It's not a large hotel but it is just a short stroll to the centre of Elgin and we felt at home for our stay.

Our room was sufficient for our needs. TV had a good selection of channels but why hang out there longer than is necessary when the hotel restaurant is just downstairs? We ate each night in the hotel and have to say that the food was fantastic. It looked like a shortened Covid-inflicted menu but still had a very good selection of tasty meals. Had a different main course at each sitting and was never disappointed. The restaurant seemed very popular with many non-resident diners as well. Breakfast was just as good.

The one thing that slightly disappointed was being unable to enjoy the advertised real ale selection in the bar. This was probably down to the Covid restrictions I imagine.

On a recent visit to Elgin, a friend took me here for lunch. We both had the venison burger with black pudding and blue cheese accompanied by salad and chips. It sounds a weird combination but it worked except I felt there was just a little too much black pudding. Altogether a pleasant lunch.

Once again we have had a fantastic family gathering at the Sunninghill Hotel. We were there for lunch and there was a lovely selection on the menu, including gluten free alternatives requested by two of our party. Can't praise this hotel enough.

With a very elderly gentleman in our party, we found this hotel excellent for disabled access to the dining room. We were given a table in the conservatory, with plenty of space and - very importantly - no noise.
The service was impeccable and staff are to be congratulated on their attention and friendliness.
The menu was extensive and varied, our group of six chose different dishes, none of which disappointed. There was no problem about varying the sauces either.
Thank you for providing a lovely day out for old friends!
