Choice of hotel chosen chiefly because of proximity to railway station. Room was a single, adequate furnishings, bed comfortable with good linens and warm duvet. Heating good (Northern Scotland in mid-November: this is important!) bath decently appointed with small enclosed shower, good bath towels, floor mat, yes, heating (again!) although lighting was not really enough for proper shaving. Small wall mounted TV (15-17in? but no comment as to available content as it was never turned on. Corridor noise and street noise gratefully absent hence sleep quality very good.. Note: bedside reading light was woefully inadequate for reading - this is an important complaint. Am I truly alone in this objection? The really compelling quality of the hotel is the late Victorian ambience, the friendliness and helpfulness of the hotel staff and the quality of the dining. The dining - excellent - there is something here to be developed in detail, but in much more detail by qualified writers than myself. Look elsewhere under the restaurant caption to be amply rewarded. Elgin is located in the heart of the Speyside distilleries of Scotland so no not overlook the Laighmoray bar offerings or the informed advice of the barman An overnight stay - blast! - will be several days more next time.
