Food on menu varied, spoiled for choice, really good and tasty on both occassions and reasonably priced, service efficient even although restaurant very busy, cheery staff and new owner very attentive. Would certainly recommend.

We had been to the Craignelder for meal a handful of times over the past few years, every time swearing we would never go back, because of indifferent food and very sullen service (always the same waitress). But our visit last week showed it to be transformed: the menu is more varied,the quality of the food is much better and... More

Went here with friends for a meal and was not disappointed, I hadn't been for a while and was pleasantly surprised at the new decor and layout. Food was very well cooked and presented well on the plate and there was plenty of it. The Hotel has recently changed ownership and the new owners certainly know how to keep up... More

Went to the restaurant with the previous owners for a meal on Monday 13th and wanted to say that the food and service was superb. The new owners have keep up the high standards and I had a wonderful meal. Wouldn't hesitate to return and I would highly recommend the chicken breast, stuffed with haggis and peppercorn sauce. Choice of... More

Had lunch in the Craignelder Hotel Stranraer, I was impressed by the décor and atmosphere of this place. There was only two things I can comment about in a negative way. The lack of parking is an issue - there was only room for parking for four cars at the front, and while eating I saw one member of staff... More

We had a great night in the Craignelder Hotel for an evening meal, we were looked after by Massimo, shown to our table wine was selected from his advice. Meal order was given to a not so happy waitress, fortunately the other staff was excellent. We had salmon in risotto and mushroom stroganoff which were excellent and topped off at... More

We stayed at the Craignelder Hotel for two nights, 8th and 9th November. Whilst the hotel is very clean, I was very disappointed with our room. There were 4 of us travelling - one room was amazing - bay window with a beautiful view of the sea with a huge bed and bathroom, the other room couldn't have been more... More
