We spent three nights at Craiglea Bed and Breakfast, two nights in room 1, which was very spacious and comfortable and the last night in room 5, which was very neat but comfortable. The owners Dave and Angela acknowledged that room 5 was smaller but this was due to planning restrictions. On arrival, we were met by Angela who provided... More

We just want to second the reviews which tell of a great location and good accommodations. Make sure you get the smoked salmon in scrambled eggs for breakfast; what a treat! Super hosts with excellent dinner location recommendations. Highly recommended. (Had some difficulty with the wi-fi, but it was our computer not the hosts' server.)

Craiglea is situated in a lovely little town, with stunning surroundings. I had a small amount of trouble finding the spot within the town. The hosts were very nice when I arrived, and got me situated pretty quickly. The room was nice and cozy, though the bed wasn't particularly comfortable. I only stayed on night, but it was a good...

After a long day on our bikes it was with some relief that we arrived at our B&B. Our host was excellent and helped us sort our very wet clothes in the drying room followed by a hot drink and cake! He then helped us clean our bikes and store them safely. Very clean, smart B&B. I'd recommend for cyclists,... More

Stayed at Craiglea for two nights over easter to do some hiking around the area. Dave & his wife were extremely welcoming, it was wonderful to have a hot cup of tea and home made biscuits upon arrival after the long drive from Edinburgh. The rooms were really comfortable and cosy, heating up really fast, and the beds were really... More

We stayed for one night in the Craiglea B&B, and stayed in the newly refurbished deluxe double room, which was very comfortable and had a nice big bathtub. Upon arrival, Angela (one of the owners) provided us with tea and delicious homemade cake, which was a pleasant surprise and made us feel very welcome. Had a great night's sleep and... More

We had an excellent time and the b&b is brilliant overall. The main thing that was so great were the hosts who were fantastic and very helpful in dealing with... More

Great value place to stay for our yearly 3 day ski trip to Glenshee. Very chatty hosts. Wonderful breakfast, a good night sleep guaranteed.. Good drying room for ski gear which we didn't even need this year due to the sunny weather. we'll definitely be going again.
