The craigtay hotel may not be the best looking building in the world, but the dining area is beautiful, and so is the food, the staff are well trained and quite helpful, the only thing that let me down with my experience for that night was the music choice in the dining area, but to be honest that was just...

we checked in early on Friday but was told this was no problem as they had just completed a new room on their refurbishment programme and we had been allocated that room. We booked a family room but when we walked into room 14 we were amazed at the size of this room, 2 double beds and a 3 seater... More

My fiancé and me staid here on night. We arrived very early,but the room was ready so we can checked immediately. The staff is very friendly! The room is okay,a little bit old fashioned. I had just one problem in the bathroom,the shower curtain was very very smelly. The breakfast was average. It was totally okay for one night!

The rooms are however very poor. My ceiling looked like a section needs replacing and it looks as though it had not had a... More
