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. The hosts, Margaret and Arthur, provide a very welcoming enviroment and are a font of all knowledge for the many interesting things to do in and around the area. The room I... More

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst on business trip to Dingwall. It is 4 star but in opinion should be 5 star. Breakfast was excellent, bed was so comfy and spacious accommodation including deep bath. Sherry in room and extensive visitor info re archaeology of local area. Good restaurants nearby too. Thank you

Craigvar has topped our favourite accommodation list and was a wonderful way to experience a Highlands village! The BnB is in the centre of the town and overlooks a lovely strip of shops. From our arrival we were greeted with friendliness, service and made to feel at home. The property itself is beautiful, a 19th century Edwardian house that is... More

Craigvar was one of our favorite accommodations during a two week drive through Scotland. Arthur was a pleasant host; his breakfasts were outstanding. The rooms were beautiful, comfortable and well appointed, extra clean and fresh, all with a discerning eye for detail. Emily was the epitome of hospitality and helpfulness that one might expect in a quality B&B such as... More
