We had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Craiglands Hotel. My parents were staying there and said it was super and they would definitely stay again. My son and I joined then for an excellent lunch with attentive service. I had the steak which was delicious and the others had a chicken dish which was a good size and also... More

Beautiful old building and well presented reception and brasserie areas are let down by old, shabby rooms that are filled with cheap, decrepit furniture and very old bathrooms. Such a disappointment. The 1960s function room addition needs pulling down 20 years ago! However the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Recently stayed here on a weekend break with my partner and loved it. The room we were given was clean and bright, I was a bit worried as I had read reviews saying the beds were not comfy but ours was perfect. The breakfast was one of the best we have had in a hotel . We found the staff... More

We stayed at the craiglands on a Tuesday evening. When we arrived we spent 15 minutes stood at reception whilst the receptionist was having a telephone conversation over a wrong booking with a group of guests that were also at the reception. Eventually we were given out room card and told to clear the balance on the room there and... More

Only stayed two nights in this old Victorian hotel. Easy to find, just up the hill from the railway station. My room was the smallest I have ever stayed in, just enough room for a double bed! However it was clean and nicely decorated with a modern bathroom and a great shower. I was travelling alone but if I had... More

We were contacted by hotel staff prior to our stay requesting credit card details (despite Booking.com having taken them and passed them on) to guarantee our stay. We were then contacted AGAIN a few weeks later asking for credit card details and were told they had no record of having called and taken them previously (although its on my received... More

As our group were leaving Skipton golf club (our last game), we all agreed that... More

An impressive hotel, very classy, yet very reasonably priced (on a par with Premier Inn). Elegant surroundings, and very accommodating staff. I am vegan, but it did not occur to me to ask for no cream to be added to the soup of the day, entirely my fault. But without quibble, this was changed for no charge. All staff very... More

Craiglands is a hotel that has seen better days, but they are renovating the bedrooms that are run of the mill. My big turn off was the service in the restaurant the young waitress who had received little training, and would improve with some basic training on how to serve customers.Our evening meal when it arrived was no very spectacular.
