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!

Just home from an enjoyable overnight stay at the crinan hotel, it's worth the trip😃. Seldom do I spend a night away from home when the bed is as comfortable as my own & this was 1 of those few occasions, lovely/quality bedding too👏 good food & welcoming staff.

This a wonderful location by the Crinan Canal with a great view at the front of the loch. Very quirky and eclectic which I suspect is a bit like Marmite - you love it or hate it. We ate seafood - scallops and langoustine - which was very fresh but the alioli tasted sweet and is best avoided. Our room... More

Have just returned from a wonderful overnight at the Crinan. Great location at lock 16. Seafood bar very good great fresh langoustines. Good barman of longstanding Chris. The owners have been there for 45 years would u believe. Very friendly. Great little coffee shop just yards from the hotel. Great stop to relax and watch all the activity

The hotel has the most wonderful setting overlooking the locks/basin of the Crinan Canal as it reaches the Atlantic and over to Jura and Scarba. It's a mix of pub, restaurant, art gallery and hotel and has a lot of character with orignal art everywhere. Nice magazines in the lounge. We ate in the bar/bistro where the seafood was excellent....

Booked a late deal for the Crinan Hotel and we were not disappointed. On arrival it was a miserable wet day and you could not see much as the mist was hanging over the Paps of Jura. We relaxed at the hotel and the owners who checked us in were extremey nice. We had a good old natter with the... More

I love Crinan and the Crinan Hotel and have been enjoying it for well over thirty five years. I was there twice this year most recently this weekend with my wife and a visitor from Japan for two nights and the food and no nonsense but comfortable and recently upgraded bathrooms and accommodation were as always perfect for this sublime...

28th July. My wife and I and two friends decided to eat in the Bar of the Crinan Hotel having moored at the Crinan Moorings. Like many older people I find it difficult to eating large meals and requested a half portion of the steak and chips having been told the sausages and mash was not available. The waitress said...
