This is a classic example of untrained people operating a business at a level below that which it should be operated. On arrival I have to wait on the doorstep for some time before the door was opened by a fellow in a grease stained polo shirt. Lets call him Basil! I informed him I had a reservation and he... More

Stayed in the craigside for one night with my partner and 6month old daughter, nice clean room, great breakfast. But the best thing about it by far was the lovely owner, made such a fuss of our daughter, made us feel extremely welcome. But to top it off, we decided we wanted to stay an extra night but couldn't find... More

Thank you for your kind words about our Guest Accommodation. As you said, I did offer you a quilt on arrival as I would not have wished you to have had a cold night. I am sorry you did not raise the issue of the stored blankets with me at the time as I could have had them laundered again... More

We stayed here in the family room which was ok, the carpet could have done with a better hoover. The worse part of the room was the shower, it was awful! Slow warm(ish) water with limescale on the shower head. Shower curtain had rips in & the pole was rusty. The beds were clean & comfy. Breakfast nice staff friendly... More

Very disappointed with the attitude of owners Jackie & Jimmy when we told them we'd been kept awake since the early hours, because of a leaking ceiling in our bedroom. No apology - they just told us we should have told them sooner (we didn't want to wake them, or our sleeping daughter in our room, in the middle of... More

We found everything about this hotel excellent. Jackie & Jimmy could not do enough to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The cleanliness was exceptional and facilities for a small hotel was very good. Lastly the breakfast must be mentioned a must to be had only to say it must be tried to see how good it is. I recommend... More

my husband, daughter and i just got back home from the craigside today. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay there again. Staff were brilliant, owners Jackie and Jimmy were very friendly and made us feel at home. Cosy bar, fabulous breakfast and situated in a ideal location. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. *****
