We intended to have morning coffee in the hotel's coffee shop, then go for as walk and return to the hotel for lunch. However, the hotel was such a let down that we did without lunch! Coffee was OK, but I've had better cakes. The coffee shop itself is soulless; it has pretensions of being an art gallery too, but... More

Went to the crinan hotel for drinks. A nice lady at reception informed me of an art gallery on the 3rd floor. Afterwards we went to the bar and ordered some drinks. We were served by the most charmless man we've ever had the misfortune to meet making absolutely no attempt to engage in any conversation let alone minor pleasantaries.... More

On the recommendation of very good friends, my husband and I enjoyed 2 extremely relaxing and peaceful nights at the Crinan Hotel. We were absolutely blown away with the stunning location and views from our bedroom and en-suite. We ate in the seafood bar on the first night and in the restaurant on our final night. Both meals were superb... More

We stayed at the Crinan Hotel for two nights during March this year and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. This is a completely wonderful, unique place to stay with views that are difficult to beat. Our room had a large, front facing balcony overlooking the sea which allowed you to watch the fishing boats leave in the morning from the comfort... More

My wife & I stayed at the delightful Crinan Hotel in Mid March this year. The hotel itself is brilliantly situated just yards from the sea and the views are spectacular. Our peaceful room had a beautiful view over the bay, although it was a bit damp & misty, the views across the bay were stunning. We went out for... More

Crinan is a lovely scenic place to stay but the hotel does not keep up with the area it is surrounded by. The choice and prices of food were terrible and although the views are lovely the inside needs to be seriously updated. The staff were not helpful or courteous with our luggage and the service was rushed and sloppy.... More

We popped in here for coffee and found it to be almost 'Poirot' like in the large lounge. We were very kindly allowed to go up to the art gallery on the top floor. What a view, absolutely beautiful. Although we did not see in the bedrooms, judging by the halls, we could imagine that they were immaculate. It certainly... More

This is well long overdo and rather late than never. I stayed at the Crinan Hotel over 20 years ago. And I must say, I've travelled all over Europe/USA and The Crinan Hotel is the only hotel that still stick out in my mind. The location was amazing. The rooms were large and inviting. Now, I'm not a big seafood... More

I first stayed at the Crinan Hotel when I was 7 weeks old (can't say I remember much!) and returned aged 24. After a warm welcome from the owner, I was escorted to my room. The first thing that hit me was the view - the picturesque Sound of Dura. Arguably one of the best hotel room views I have... More

The Crinan Hotel is located in, arguably, one of the most stunning coastal spots in Scotland. Overlooking Crinan Harbour, with its fishing boats, working sea lock, red and white striped lighthouse and unspoilt view over Loch Crinan it has the potential to be a destination hotel for travellers from across the world. Yet, it just doesn't quite hit the mark.... More
