We stayed only for one night to attend a meeting in the hotel. What an absolute gem of a hotel it was. Oozing luxury from the moment you walk through the front door into the reception. Check in was very quick and we were then escorted up to our room being shown different aspects of the hotel on the way.... More

I spent a superb night at Cragwood with my wife & cockapoo puppy to celebrate my 50th birthday. I just had the best time, sensational dinner, charming staff who made you feel very much at home, spotlessly clean and comfortable room (Rm 1). Finished off with a lovely Cragwood cooked breakfast. I can't wait till my next birthday, thank you
