We recently spent 3 nights here. Not in the nicest location (unless you want to be near the airport) but spotlessly clean, comfortable, good, reasonably priced, food and perfect as a base for travelling around the area as we were doing. Staff were efficient, friendly and welcoming.

As Area President of the The Association of Speakers Clubs it was my task to choose a venue for our annual dinner which has 30-40 attendees from all over Aberdeenshire. Having looked at some of the positive reviews from individual travellers I contacted the Craighaar and they were able to accommodate us. We had our dinner last night and I... More

Have stayed here several times. It's quite a nice small hotel, but very comfortable with nice bedrooms and shower room. Fixed head shower ladies! The breakfasts are delicious and they serve fish at no additional cost. Dinner was equally tasty, with a good choice of menu. The staff including chambermaids always have a friendly word. About 5 minutes in the... More

Having stayed mainly in Premier Inn type hotels over the past few years, it was refreshing to stay in a hotel that had character rather than being a corporate soulless block of rooms. However, you need to be prepared for a small room. Booked into an executive room, but I'm not entirely sure what would set it apart from standard.... More

Stayed on business for 1 night. The food is first class and the bar very homely. The staff were friendly and helpful, Room very comfortable and a fresh modern look. My only grumble was the noise from the airport.

September 2013, the Craighaar Hotel hosted our wedding reception and they did a fabulous job. When we were looking for a small, intimate reception venue, where we could have the people that really matter to us, the Craighaar Hotel delivered just that. We turned up a bit late after our wedding service and they didn’t kick up a fuss and... More

Staff managed to rearrange rooms so that we could get a twin room, which was immaculate. Had an excellent dinner and breakfast in the restaurant where the... More

Stayed here recently to allow me to attend a party in town as I didn't want to drive home. This beautiful hotel is faultless. Everything you expect from a hotel. Breakfast was delicious, room was immaculately clean, bed was incredibly comfortable. Lovely evening sun lighting great views over the neighbouring bowling club, while the bowlers played a few games.
