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 a three night stay as a group of three friends staying in two rooms as a base to do some skiing and mountain biking from in early March. 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.

Almost at the end of our 2 weeks Higlands tour, backing down from west and northern coast, we missed the warmth and genuinity of the Others B&B (even luxury ones) The room was simple but ok and wide. Only minus a low bathroom door Breakfast was just normal. The big minus is that you have no chance in feeling at... More

My partner and I stayed for 2 nights, and found Craiglea a lovely B&B option for exploring the Royal Deeside. Warm welcome; cozy, tidy room with comfortable bed; great big bathtub; nice location to walk to the town (though there's not too much there/open in late December); good breakfast; and helpful advice from Dave as to where to walk in...

We had 3 nights in Craiglea B&B back in March and used it as a base to try our the near by skiing. Just bear in mind this is a B&B not a 5* hotel and you'll stay happy! Our room was nice and spacious for the two of us (although I do think it was the biggest available) and... More

Slightly cramped room, with dripping tap and questionable layout, more than made up for by welcoming and friendly hosts. Well positioned for local facilities, and as a base for travelling. Overall I would certainly recommend.
