We recently had a three night break at the Cairnbaan hotel. Lots of positives and a few "could do better" points. On the positive side, the hotel is situated in a great place - right opposite one of the Crinan canal locks, with easy access to the canal tow path for walks to Lochgilped or Crinan, and also within easy...

My friend and I stayed in the Cairnbaan Hotel, on dbb, for two nights. Lovely hotel and outlook. Friendly welcome and this continued throughout our stay. Breakfast - ideal choices and nicely presented. Dinner superb - only minor complaint was that portions were too much, so we didn't reach dessert either night. We enjoyed our stay so much, we are...

Stayed here on business with work colleagues. Staff were friendly but was a bit disappointed the room was cold on arrival - not a very good first impression especially at this time of year. The television was quite small for the size of room and was sat on a window sill behind a chair which I had to move to... More

It pretty much does at it says on the tin. It's in a quite location about 3 miles from Lochgilphead. Room was certainly good and spacious though somewhat cold. Bathroom certainly wasn't modern, however was functional. Probably not ideal for business travellers as mobile signal and wi-fi certainly limited throughout. Had to resort to the payphone to ring home. Food... More

I grew fond of the Cairnbaan Hotel eighteen months ago when we stayed for a couple of nights while moving house. We found the room well maintained, clean and cosy, the meals were excellent and the staff helpful. So, the other week, we decide to go for lunch. W now live an hour and a half’s drive from the Hotel,... More

We recently spent just one night here with our daughter nod son in law. We didn't have an evening meal as we were attending a family party elsewhere. We were delighted with our stay. The breakfast was the best we have ever had in a hotel and having the lounge to relax in which felt more like someone's rather grand... More

Lovely, friendly receptionist on arrival (Aileen) who showed us to our first floor room overlooking the Crinan canal. Room was very pleasant, comfortable, large, with a large bathroom with a bath. Dinner in the restaurant was very good where again we were served by Aileen (who must be a big plus for the hotel). A very good breakfast the next... More

The Cairnbaan is located in one of the most idyllic areas of the west coast with little competition in the area. Food in the restaurant is very good, particularly the sea food and served by friendly, smiling staff. The accommodation side of the hotel in our experience reflects a different standard however. Although some effort has been made to provide... More
