Southbank Guest House i Elgin is a great place to stay, if you are in the area. The rooms are clean and nice, the full breakfast is tasty (if mayby not so healthy) but the best thing about the place is the service. They are very nice and open and treat their guests with warmth and humor. Highly recommendable.

8 guys on a trip to visit Speyside distilleries who stayed at Southbank Guest House in may 2016. We had a wonderful time here. Extremely friendly staff and we felt very welcome. Rooms were great, breakfast was excellent and you could get extras of whatever you wished. Southbank Guest House is just nice and very "homely". As we were 8...

The owner and her staff made us feel welcome with their kindness. It was easy to feel relaxed and the breakfast was good and plenty of it. The rooms are nice and clean. The guest House is located near the center of the City, so we could easily walk out for dinner and shopping

I've slept in this place more than 8 weeks, with a irreproachable service room made daily, except weekends. Coffee, tea, Tv, nice rooms (I slept in 10, 1, 8 room) so it was a great time in there. Full wi-fi.

We arrived slightly late but this was not a problem with our keys easily available and a representative come out to welcome us. Parking located at the back was convenient. Rooms were nicely renovated and nice and warm. They were more spacious then we were expecting. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was great. Although this isn't a 5 star...

Booked and payed 75 quid to stay here for one night. Had been travelling for 15 hours that day and just wanted somewhere warm and comfortable to spend the night.

Was booked in here as I left it last minute and there were no hotel rooms available. Friendly greeting from the owner and the room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Owner offer to get me cutlery and a plate as I'd grabbed some take-away food, also offered to let me use the breakfast room which was nice. Good wifi speeds...

I have stayed in Southbank for 2 nights. B&B location might be a problem due to very small road. Parking area is not the biggest one as well. Room was clean and tidy, plenty of space. Shower water pressure was a little bit to low. Appart of that everything else was spot on.

We stopped here for two nights while up visiting our Daughter, her Partner and granddaughter. The folk who own it were very welcoming, warm and friendly. The rooms are nicely decorated and modern in appearance. However if there were details we would say to improve on would be the quality of the pillows and the shower (Room 5 was very...

Not a beautiful house from outside but the inside is very nice. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Southbank. Nothing bad to say about it. Clean, tidy, big rooms, nice breakfast. Good value
