“Excellent Guest House”
Reviewed 29 October 2010

We stayed at The Pines for two nights in October 2010 and were very impressed. An elegant property which is immaculately maintained with everything from curtains to crockery of a high standard. In addition there is friendly service and a great breakfast menu.

The property is an easy walk from Elgin town centre and was jusr right for our purposes. We would certainlt stay there again. Recommended!

My wife and Son of 10yrs old stayed here whilst visiting friends for the Half Term break during Feb 10. It rates without doubt as one of the most pleasant guest houses I have stayed in. Forget hotels if you are in Elgin then this is the place to stay. All too often I have plumped for a bustling hotel but having stayed at the Pines I will be assured of booking into more Guest Houses in the future.
The owners were so welcoming that you would almost be mistaken that you were returning to your own home on a nightly basis.
The breakfast was ample and kept me and my family going until way into the afternoon.
The Guest House was impeccably presented, very clean and comfortable.
I'd like to express my sincere thanks to Charles & Helen for a wonderful stay. When i visit Elgin again I know exactly where to book in.

We recently stayed at the Pines for two nights on a visit to our son who is based at RAF Lossiemouth. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean as was the rest of this lovely old house with much character. The large king sized bed was very comfortable and the room was tastefully decorated within keeping of the building and very cozy. Our hosts were very friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. The breakfast on both mornings was excellent. Would recommend and will hopefully be back soon!

My husband and I stayed in this guest house for two nights while attending a wedding in Elgin. The location is not the best - next to a busy road, opposite an industrial area / Burger King. The guest house itself is in a nice, old fashioned building. We were shown to our room which was very nice, with a four poster bed. The room was comfortable enough with a flat screen, wall mounted TV. The shower in the bathroom didn't have much pressure.
On the face of it, the guest house was fair enough but the service at breakfast was a major let-down. No eye contact was made, the food was served without as much as a word, in general we felt like the lady serving us just couldn't be bothered and we were an inconvenience. This happened on both mornings. It's a shame but it has affected our enjoyment of the stay and we won't be back in a hurry.
