The Craighaar while a bit old, is recently redecorated and spotlessly clean . They have an excellent kitchen - a good bar, good restaurant and breakfast. The in-suite bath is tiny, and the room cramped, but not the worst I've been given in the UK where I've paid much more for less even at Name Brand hotels. However, the bed... More

Booked a last minute deal in one of the suites. Could not fault anything. Room was spotless and very comfortable. We ate in the restaurant the food was to die for. Service was first class, could not do enough for us. The breakfast was excellent, plenty of variety to suit everyone. Will def recommend this hotel.

We spent last weekend with our local Historical Society on a dinner bed and breakfast basis. Throughout all the booking process nothing was too much for Gemma. When we got to the hotel everyone was impressed by the standard of the rooms which all seemed to have been recently decorated. The food was excellent with a good variety and a... More

The quality of the food at the function was excellent, well presented and plentiful too. The staff were very attentive, i don't think i sat with an... More

We attended a function here and the food was amazing. Couldn't fault a thing which is unlike me. Presentation was also first class. Wouldn't hesitate to eat here again. Staff very efficient too and everywhere very clean and tidy.

Having lived in Aberdeen for 15 years, some 20 years ago I remember the Craighaar as a good place to eat. Having stayed last week I think it probably better to eat there than stay there ! There is now a proliferation of hotels around the airport so you have a choice - the problem with the Craighaar is that... More

We went to Craighaar 3 weeks ago and enjoyed the experience so much we chose the venue for our Valentines Dinner. Excellent food and service. The dessert menu was a real winner. Rooms we're clean and comfortable. We will be back

This hotel has a very good restaurant with good food, the rooms are comfortable and clean. It is quite handy for Aberdeen Airport, a five minute taxi ride away. Don't expect to have a lie-in though, because as soon as the planes and helicopters start moving in the morning, they tend to wake you up. All in all its as... More
