Stotfield Hotel was opened as a purpose built hotel in 1895 and has 3 floors. There is parking at the front of the hotel for 8-9 cars and it is directly opposite the Moray golf club and course.

We booked with Easy Breaks, DB&B with a bottle of wine on arrival. We were able to take the wine to the restaurant for dinner.

The hotel is not suitable for disabled as there are no lifts.

There is a reading lounge near reception with leather sofas and chairs.

Meals are served in the Balmoral restaurant. Drinks are available in the Firth Lounge where they also have a lunch menu.

The hotel is old and a bit worn in places, but clean with lots of character.

We had a refurbished room, twin or double beds, plenty of storage, tea/coffee making facilities, trouser press, central heating, TV.

The bathroom was large with a shower over the bath. Gilchrist and Soames bath gel and shampoo.

The food very good and worthy of a 4 star hotel. There are 4 choices of each course each day.

Starters - soup, deep fried Brie, haggis crepes, smoked salmon (supplement), scallops on black pudding,.

Main courses - chicken stuffed with haggis, lamb, venison, duck, lemon sole, grilled salmon, rump steak (supplement).

Dessert - strawberry Pavlov, sticky toffee pudding, warm chocolate fudge cake, apple and cinnamon crumble, lemon cheesecake, Banoffee cheesecake, cheese and biscuits (supplement).

Wine is from £11 bottle.

Breakfast - fruit juice, fruit, cereals, toast, tea or coffee, cheese and meat platter or cooked breakfast - bacon, sausage, egg, tomato and potato scone.

The Scottish Tourist Board rating is 2 star which is based on facilities. I would say it was 3 star and food worthy of a 4 star.

All staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly Eli on reception and Jonathan and the Hungarian waiter (didn't get his name) in the restaurant.

We would certainly return to this hotel provided we got a refurbished room as I have read that these are much better than the other rooms.

Lossiemouth is 6 miles from Elgin and 48 miles from Inverness. There are lots of golf courses in the area and one across the road from the hotel. I think there is a discount for hotel guests. There are also lots of castles and whisky distilleries to visit in the area.

I can recommend the Harbour Lights restaurant near the harbour in Lossiemouth which is open all day. I can particularly recommend their Cullen Skink, soup made with smoked haddock, potatoes, onions and cream.
