One day the hotel will be refurbished and something will be lost. We visited again, our third visit, on a voucher deal and loved the rather faded aspects of the fabric and furnishings. Staff are very helpful and service is excellent. The food in the bar is absolutely first class and so reasonably priced. We shall be back.

Didn't stay but had a pint in the Bar. The hotel looks fantastic with great views of a beautiful part of the country from the deck on the 3rd floor Art gallery. The staff went out of their way to accommodate my mother in law in her wheelchair and I can't thank them enough. This place is definitely on my... More

It is its location that is the unique selling point of the Crinan Hotel and the view across the Sound of Jura is spectacular. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the food in the Seafood bar was delicious. The ambience of the main restaurant has a distinct 1950's character nevertheless breakfast was a delight - porridge and kippers served... More

We found the staff at the crinan to be v helpful and friendly. The hotel position is beautiful with stunning views. The room was a bit dated but I think the biggest disappointment is the food in the main restaurant. I found it to be quote dated in style and presentation and just felt it could have been updated. There... More

Always wanted to stay here and were not disappointed. The ordinary weather was to be expected and did not spoil the occasion. The sea food in the bar was exceptional and staff throught the hotel were very welcoming.

Ate here with my parents yesterday evening; the food & service were both great, but the atmosphere was poor with it being so quiet, due to there being no gentle background music. But overall, great views of the lock & loch - although, the staff could've done with having a bit more of a personality lol!
