2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2011

public areas of hotel are of a decent standard - however beware of the rooms!! - i was in one of the single rooms which was a throwback to the sixties.
i believe the hotel is being modernised but would suggest that rooms like the one i stayed in are not hired out to guests in the meantime.

Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. All our double, twin rooms and suites have recently been refurbished and upgraded. Our single rooms have not been completed as yet, however some of the singles will be upgraded within the next couple of weeks. Our apologies that the room booked was not of the standard you expected, we do hope you have the opportunity to try out the other accommodation we have on offer.
Kind Regards

Although room was basic it was clean and well appointed. What made this a great stay was the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. The chef gave me his recope for sticky toffee pudding ( delicious) and the receptionist even offered to run me to the station if I couldn't get a taxi!

An added bonus were the good leisure facilities and pool.

I was unsure whether to book this hotel or not based on the past reviews but im glad i took the chance and did book it.

Hotel was lovely and clean. We stayed in a double room and it had modern dark furniture with modern dark rustic headboard.

Breakfast and dinner were excellent, lots of variety on the menu and it was all very tasty.

Service was great too, very quick and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. My grandaughter joined us for dinner too every evening and she said it was excellent too. There are nice lounge areas on the ground floor to relax in and friends are welcome to join.

There is even a computer with internet access for guests to use to check emails or to surf. Lots of interesting leaflets about the tourist attractions.

I believe parts of the hotel are being refurbished at the moment and this is the single rooms so maybe some of the not so good reports come from the single rooms. All the double rooms have now been done tho as i enquired about this.

Great leisure facilities, pool is fab and there si a gym and squash court too.

Only thing is if you are unable to get up the stairs then this hotel is not for you. All the bedrooms are on the first floor and at the moment there is no lift or stair chair. It wasnt a problem for us though and we were aware of this before our stay.

Room Tip: Great hotel, fab stay, great pool, food excellent.

I stayed here on a three night easy-break at the cost of 35 per night dinner bed and breakfast. Breakfast was not too bad with a good choice of cereals and fresh fruit salad, plus a cooked selection, which was replenished on request.
Dinner was superb with a four course menu, with main courses including, venison, wood pigeon, pheasant, everything was very well cooked and presented.
I cannot fault the service everyone was very helpful and couldn't be more polite.
Bedrooms were basic but adequate.
All in all I was very happy with this hotel.

I only stay here because I can use the gym and sauna. I usually book a double room for sole use because the singles are just shocking. The refurbished doubles have terrible mattresses and single glazed windows so you can count the cars before you nod off. Some bedroom doors have been replaced but are as yet unpainted and the old handles have been used. This place is shabby to say the least and the staff are note very helpful.If you do a lot of business miles its good to get a workout in a gym every now and then and thats the only reason I stay here.The gym is excellent and the staff in that area are fine.

Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. It is disappointing to hear that you do not enjoy your time with us. We are about to start a refurbishment programme of the single rooms and the hotel is constantly undergoing upgrades and the doors are part of this process. I do hope in the future you will stay with us again. Thanks again for taking the time to review your stay.

We arrived at hotel on Monday 28th March, girl at chichi in was very friendly, turns out she was the manager. Our room was clean and of adequate size, and had a great deep bath and shower, the lounge and dining room is run by a young man called Tom, who is a very good host, nothing appears to be any trouble to him at all, the food in the restaurant is first class and portions very generous. Overall we had a fabulous time in this hotel, and will return.

I can only say our stay for three nights was outstanding. I moved away from Elgin in 1986 having been born and brought up there this was a fond return
On arrival we were met at reception by Melissa who gave us an excellent briefing on what was available to us Meal times, Bar Menu. and the use of the lesure Club. She answered several questions we had and resolved quickly a problem i had encounterd on pre-booking.

The bedroom was bright and clean, the bed was very comfortable, it was a cosy room with tastefull decor.
We heard nobody in the surrounding rooms in our three nights, and we know people were resident as we passed in the corridor. The Television had a variation of free view channels ,tea and coffee facilities in the room,hair dryer, Iron and Ironing board was available. WiFi was excellent
The bathroom was of a good size very deep bath after a day in the mountains eased the aches, the shower was invigirating.
The restaurant over our three days was supervised by a very enthusiastic young man called Tom he took time and interacted at breakfast and during the evening meal with everyone he was dealing with. He was discreet but very accomadating to our needs, this of course made it easier to enjoy the experince in particular the 3 course evening meal we were served each night with local produce which was served to an excellent standard.
We went for one swim during our stay the pool was small in size but adequate for what we needed the changing rooms were of the highest standard good sized lockers, showers and changing locker.
I was proud to return to Elgin and thanks to the the Eight Acres Hotel and the staff they made this break a memorable one.
