The room was large and comfortable. The bed was excellent, the best of our trip. The staff kindly gave us walking directions to restaurants and stores in town. The breakfast was great.
Good price. What more could you ask for.

Myself and my friend stayed here for a nearby wedding. The room we had was lovely with plenty of tea and coffee available with a huge comfortable bed. Mandy and her husband Paul deserve the 5 stars as when we were trying to get a taxi they also called around and when we couldn't get one, Paul very kindly drove us into town as we didn't have a clue where to go. Little things matter and this was lovely of them. Full marks to the breakfast as well, set us right up to head back to Edinburgh after a night of drinking. We would stay again when back in Elgin.

We spent 5 nights here. Parking was on the grounds, we could walk to town in 10 minutes, and access to major roads for traveling was only 5 minutes away. The owner and the staff were cheerful and helpful. Breakfast was extensive and well prepared. The room was quite comfortable (including the bed) and had large windows overlooking the garden and grounds. We thought The Pines was excellent value at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: There is some street noise due to heavy vehicle traffic, but our second floor room had heavy drapes and the noise was not a problem.

Had two great nights here. We had a late check in on the Friday night and stayed the Saturday too. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and the room(with three beds) was spacious and comfortable. A great breakfast was included too.

When the 4 stars were awarded to the Pines Guest House the beds must have been new as now the mattresses are old and uncomfortable. The reviews we read mentioned friendly staff and I am afraid that the team that own the guest house are not friendly. Beware about the breakfast timings as they are 0800-0900hrs 7 days a week including weekends. Finally, we were nearly charge our full stay again as the owners had already taken our money remotely and then asked us to pay the full amount again. It was only because I questioned what the credit card receipts were attached to our bill that the transaction was cancelled. Then a German guest who was checking out at the same time was also asked to pay again as well...
