Retirement tipsy-tea party

I recently chose the Mansion House,after viewing other local hotels,to have my retirement tipsy-tea party for thirty +. people. It was the best decision ever,from start to finish Lynnie was so hands on ,we had a private room(so we didn't disturb other clients)The spread laid on was simply awesome,to much variety to mention. .Two waitresses were very discreetly on hand,to provide extra requirements.A wonderful night was had by all.,and I would recommend this venue for any occasions.Once again many thanks to Lynnie who made it so easy for me.

Works Xmas Party

We had our works xmas party at the Mansion House hotel. It was a fantastic night.First we had a greeting from Santa and had our photo taken with him, then we we were welcomed into the hall and we were all given a glass of punch. We were then shown to our table for the night. We didn't have to wait long for our food. There was a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 desserts which we had picked prior with our booking. the food was served swiftly by the waiting staff and was hot on arrival and in my opinion was lovely, though I did leave some but only because the servings were very generous.The entertainment was just brilliant, Andy Leighton James got everyone up dancing the whole night. There was also the chance to get your picture taken by the photographer for a small fee including some fun props to make our night memorable. All our team had an amazing night and we all said we would go back next year as we all had such fun. The manager and all the staff did a fantastic job and never stopped all night. Thank you to all of you at the Mansion House hotel xx

“Fantastic place”

A building filled with 'Old World Splendour' close to the town, but with a feeling of space and being in the countryside especially from the front of the hotel. 
Staff greet you as soon as they see you with a warm welcome, and are very helpful in any and all requests we had. 
Room had four poster beds, gives you a feeling of opulence, and grandeur, lovely bathrooms. nice quiet room. 
We were there for a function, the building appeared to be filled to capacity, the car park certainly was anyway. short wait to be served at the bar during the party but that is to be expected when at full capacity, and i have certainly waited a lot longer , in my local pub. 
All in all, a very friendly place, old world charm with modern facilities, and excellent staff. 
We will be back

Lovely spa break!

Stayed here for a couple of nights in one of the sleigh bed rooms, the room was nice, a bit tired in places but nothing a lick of paint couldn't fix. The Spa facilities were excellent, massage and treatments by Nicola were great, very relaxing! Food was amazing and the staff were friendly and helpful - would definitely recommend!

Short Break

Reviewed November 18, 2016

We have recently returned after a three day break at at The Mansion House Hotel Elgin.
What a great stay. Friendly and professional staff, excellent food and great rooms. When we arrived we found our room cold as radiators were not operating. One phone call to reception and heating was on within minutes........... now that is service !
Would recommend a stay here to anyone and we would return.

gorgeous room and building

the room was amazing, we had the double sleigh room and the bed was enormous! Bathroom very clean and great shower. The dinner was wonderful, only negative would be that it was a bit chilly in the restaurant in the morning for breakfast, but I haven't downgraded my rating because I feel everything else made up for it!

"10/10 Spa Break"

"Welcomed by staff to a lovely large room with a 4 poster bed, large TV, large showers and beautiful interior. Couldn't believe how nice it was so had to take a few minutes to admire the room. 

The spa facilities were pristine. Swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room were all good sizes and so my partner and myself used the facilities twice. Lots of fun. Poolside staff very friendly and helpful. 

My partner and myself both had a full body relaxation massage and a 20 minute Indian head massage both at the same time. Staff made us feel very comfortable and so relaxed I nearly fell asleep staff called the room to remind us of our treatment times which was kind. 

After our spa treatments we had a 3 course meal which was candlelit. Very romantic. Food was delicious!! Credit to the chef! Everyone seated next to us was complimenting the food too. Can't say enough about the food and our waitress was just wonderful in ensuring we enjoyed our dinner and received the best service. 

Lovely walking space around the hotel which we made use of. Beautiful scenery. Very relaxing for our spa break. Sat outside quite a lot to enjoy the fresh air and scenery. 

Lunch was just as good as dinner. We chose to have lunch before travelling back home. Was very filling and tasty and the perfect end to our holiday. Again the food at the hotel is just fantastic. Also noticed they have more than one vegetarian option which I always check out for recommending to friends and family. 

Staff ensured that we had enjoyed our stay before we left. We could not fault it. 10/10 hotel and will definitely return. Leaving very happy, relaxed and very satisfied with our stay. No regrets. 

Thank you to the staff at The Mansion House for the perfect spa break. We will return!

"Mansion House"

"Just back from a weekend break at this Hotel. I can't rate it enough. Hotel, food and staff were all second to none. The staff made us feel more than welcome as soon as we arrived until the moment we left. We had our evening meal there and the food was lovely and fresh and we enjoyed every morsel. The breakfast also was the best I've had from any Hotel. All staff were more than attentive and seemed to be more like one big happy family. Our thanks to Lynnie for our treatments and for making our stay special. Will certainly be going back. April & Bruce"

Room Tip: Offers sleigh bed and four posters

"A great find"

"A warm welcome and a lovely comfortable room with 4 poster bed. Neat little pool, sauna and steam room was relaxing after a long drive. Dinner was excellent and the service pleasant and unassuming. Breakfast also very tasty and relaxed. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights here and the hotel well exceeded expectations given first impression as we approached. Recommend it for a weekend away from it all. Thankyou"

"Super two day break"

"A nice welcome when arriving at The Mansion House for our two night stay, we were shown to room 2 which is a lovely room, I think possibly one of the best, I has this big super king four-poster bed which you almost need to jump up to get in as it is a bit higher the ordinary beds, but once in it feels like sheer luxury, the large room also has a settee and two armchairs with a table in the middle. There is a wardrobe with towel robes which can be used for going to the swimming pool. The room has a large bay window looking over the river to a park which includes what looks like a horse riding track this looks fairly new. We decided to eat in the bistro on the first night, the meal was just ok, perhaps we were expecting something more special in the surroundings we were in so can’t rave about the meal, the main dining room has much more character and breakfasts are served there which were very nice. We used the swimming pool sauna and steam room, all recently done up to a nice standard. The Gym looks good also, although we did not make use of that. The staff were friendly and helpful, they made our stay really enjoyable, many thanks to you all, we would love to return again in the future."

Room Tip: Room 2 or 5 perhaps the best

"Can't Fault It"

"We travelled for over 9 hours to get here for our 3 night break but it was worth it. We were immediately welcomed and shown round then ate a superb 3 course meal in the restaurant. The food, service and the Hotel in general were excellent. YOU JUST CAN'T FAULT IT."

"Unexpected gem"

"Just had a relaxing couple of days at the Mansion House, our room and en suite was beautifully furnished and looked like it had been recently refurbished, the curtains and all the furnishings were of high quality but in keeping with the building. We had dinner in the restaurant on Sunday, food was outstanding and staff attentive. Breakfast food was high quality and lots of choice. Changing rooms have been refurbished and all the gym equipment is brand new, pool area clean and tidy. Spa treatments were lovely (facial and hot stone massage). Couldn't fault this hotel, everything was just lovely and the staff hard working, courteous and happy. Hope to visit again soon."

"Holiday Break"

"This is our third time we have stayed here - and I can certainly say it has improved beyond expectations. From the moment we arrived, the Staff made us very welcome and explained the meal times and the facilities available to us. They were brilliant and courteous the whole weekend. 
They are an AA 4 Star hotel and have just received a "Rosette" award from the AA for their cuisine and dining excellence. Every sitting we had for food from breakfast to evening dinner was superb - and would give much more prominent STAR hotels a good run for their money. 
The pool and Spa facilities have just been upgraded with state of the art changing rooms.
This is definitely the Jewel in the Crown for fine dining in the North East of Scotland, and being pampered by a proficient staff who could nod do enough to ensure your stay is not only memorable - but giving you the feel good factor knowing you have made the right decision to stay with them for the best weekend possible.
Thank you Lynnie & Joanne - you were brilliant. We will definitely be back."

"Great Hotel"

"Just back from a super 2 night break at the Mansion House. Staff were all so friendly and helpful - from finding a phone charger for my husband, to helping me fix a broken nail! All staff took the time to ask if we were enjoying both the hotel and the surroundings.

Room 9 - was spotlessly clean, with a comfortable bed. Bit on the small side perhaps, but more than adequate. View to the front of the hotel, and over to the statue of Duke of Gordon (I think).

Excellent meal on the Friday night, my halibut with smoked haddock chowder was absolutely delicious. Breakfast both days was served piping hot and plentiful.

The leisure centre is lovely, the pool (salt water) is warm and large enough to swim in, rather than just laze about. Enjoyed both the sauna and steam room."
