We made a return visit to the Craigvar in July 2015, just for one night. We'd stayed there twice before and we wouldn't stay anywhere else when we visit the beautiful Strathpeffer. It's just so welcoming, a stunning home where the hosts make you feel at home. Our room ( the Blue room) was spotless, modern and superbly comfortable. The... More

This B&B is a real find. There is so much attention to detail in the room – not just tea and coffee but fruit and snacks too; lovely toiletries, a seriously comfortable bed, spotlessly clean. And if you can tear yourself away from your room there is a beautiful sitting room for guests to relax in. The hosts could not... More

This B&B was reccomended to us by my parents who stayed a few years ago. Everything they raved about was spot on. Owners were lovely. We were welcomed with a tray of tea and biscuits on arrival. They made time to chat and get to know their guests. The room was beautiful! Loved the sherry that was left in our... More

Stayed here whilst attending a family wedding at the nearby pavillion. We received a warm welcome on arrival and were made to feel very much at home throughout our stay. The owners genuinely couldn't do enough for us. The facilities are first class with free wifi, immaculate rooms, and a great breakfast. The location is central to all Strathpeffer amenities... More

Based on all the previous glowing reviews, we expected the Craigvar to be a very good Bed & Breakfast but we knew it couldn't be as good as everyone was saying. We were right: IT WAS BETTER! Owners, Arthur and Margaret, are a delightful couple who give a master class in how to run a B & B. In fact... More

We had a warm welcome, from the daughter of the house, in this former spa village. She approved of the Red Poppy Restaurant just 2 min walk away and thats where we had a delicious meal. The bed in this lovely Victorian b & b was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Really the tops.

This is an immaculate and very tastefully presented Bed and Breakfast. Well run by the friendly and welcoming hosts Arthur and Margaret. We had the Blue/West Room which had a dual aspect window, overlooking the square. The room was beautiful with a large bathroom with free standing bath and separate shower. The bed was one of the most comfortable i... More

This must be the best b&b in the world: what a great house, fantastic rooms, incredibly tasteful and high quality breakfast and very kind hosts. Strathpeffer is a very nice and interesting village, but it is worthwile to come just for Craigvar!

We spent 1 night here and it was just great! The rooms are so nice and comfortable! I'm in my exchange semester in Scotland, so I already travelled around a little bit, but this B&B was by far the best place I stayed! My boyfriend was a little bit sick and they did everything they could do, to let him... More

I stayed at Craigvar for 3 nights in March. The house is a beautifully restored Victorian house occupying a central position in the equally wonderful village of Strathpeffer.
