Great hotel

Sydney, Australia

The Lord Elgin is a great hotel in a perfect location. The friendly reception staff were amazing, making us feel very welcome and special. We received maps of places of interest and restaurants. The rooms were large, the beds very comfy and the bathrooms lovely, very well appointed. Also, the restaurant for breakfast was excellent, with many choices. To top our visit off, Christopher on the reception desk gave us a detailed itinerary for the rest of our road trip to Toronto! I would definitely recommend!

Very comfortable and excellent service

Penistone, United Kingdom

The Lord Elgin is a very friendly and comfortable hotel. The rooms are spacious with all the facilities you could need. The setting is very convenient for the city but others in our party had problems with traffic noise when in rooms at the front . Also problems with mechanical noise on the 11th floor. That said once this was mentioned to reception they were moved without problem. The staff are very professional and couldn’t be more helpful. A very good stay would definitely stay again.
