Lovely night here with good friends, however food was ok, had the pork and black pudding, not good serving the end off the black pudding on the top! Food wasn't presented as nice as usual, It was ok. Service great and efficient. 😊Will come back in the future, as food is great overall.

We stopped here on the way back home for a bite to eat and stretch our legs. The starters were lovely; unfortunately, for me my main was not so good, over cooked tuna steak, which did not taste fresh at all. That said, my partner really enjoyed his food, so maybe, I was just unlucky. Certainly, the ambience and general...

We have just returned from a two night stay at The Elph. Everything was perfect from the comfortable room, superb food and exceptional staff. It really feels homely and everyone is so friendly. We stayed in room 6 which overlooks the decked terrace and found it lovely and quiet. The lounge has recently been refurbished and thankfully the lovely open...

Stayed here for a wedding taking place in the nearby castle. Booked a small double room 3 but didn't realise it wouldn't have a window! Room was adequate had a nice bathroom with a separate shower and corner bath. Good breakfast and excellent evening meal.

I recently stayed at the Elphinstone for a couple of nights, together with some friends. The staff were fabulous, so accommodating to any request. Super friendly! The food was delicious, can definitely recommend the roast beef dinner! Fresh ingredients used and a wide choice to choose from. Our room was very clear and spacious. My only (slightly) negative comment was...

Booking was easy, over the telephone a few days before arrival. We were in Biggar just for the one night and found the hotel easily, right in the centre of the town with parking outside. The staff were very welcoming. Our room was a little tired but very adequate with very clean en suite. The view was over the pub...

Enjoyed lunch here when visiting Biggar recently. Highlight was the ice cream sundae for dessert, which seemed to be a bit of a specialty and one of the best that I've ever had. Pleasant and helpful staff too.
