Visited recently with some colleagues. Food was fairly average, service wasn't great.... waiter couldn't even tell one of my American colleagues what was in the Diane sauce, didn't even offer to find out. After the main course, the dessert menus were dumped on the table and the table only partially cleared. Staff seemed to be more interested in standing about... More

Business lunches are all too often time dependent. The Craighar seems to forget this. On many occasion this place have been mentioned as a meeting place -the slow pace of service is a major drawback. Even when there is very few customers. Food is acceptable but unfortunately the 3 hour lunch break is over!!

The staff are friendly and very helpful, my room was lovely, very clean with plenty of room. Being so close to the airport it's bound to be a little noisy but after a couple of helicopters flying over I really didn't notice them.

We came here on a last minute DBB for a birthday celebration and got a great deal. The food was absolutely fantastic and if it was rated on food alone it would of been five stars from us. Service was great too! Rooms need a bit of an update but bathrooms were newly done and look great. absolutelabsolutelyfantastic

The staff are all very friendly especially Arran behind the bar. The rooms are comfortable but basic and the shower in my room was extremely small with no hook or shelf to place shampoo etc. so I had to put it in the shower tray whilst I showered. The food is very good and has gone upmarket since I last... More

A great location just enough off the main road for privacy. A friendly checkin by the pleasant receptionist and a warm welcome in the restaurant. The food was excellent and cooked fresh to order. I had my 3 course meal served to me in 45 minutes. Probably slightly fast service as one plate was away and straight away replaced by... More
