We have recently stayed at Crubenbeg House again (6 stays in 3 years). Everything about the place is superb (including the amazing hospitality received from John and Irene). Our room was, as always, so quiet, relaxing and peaceful and the meals, as always, were pure excellence in every respect. What more can I say apart from a great 'thank you'... More

Stayed here with our two dogs for 1 night as a stopover on our journey North. We were given a great welcome from our hosts Irene and John with tea and home-bake which was delicious. The dogs were also made to feel welcome. The house is beautiful and in an idealic setting. Our room was very comfortable indeed with all... More

Everything was just perfect, from the warm welcome to the beautiful room with every comfort, excellent dinner and breakfast - but there's more! We were on a backpacking walking trip and arrived tired, with a wet tent and damp sleeping bags. In no time John had these hanging on the washing line in the sun, while Irene revived us with... More

Rating our recent 3-night stay at Crubenbeg House is easy - it was EXCELLENT in all respects. But more than that - it was SPECIAL. It is a lovely house, standing in a beautiful location. But it ‘specialness’ is down to its welcoming, hospitable, personable, and skilled hosts. They are so accommodating, and friendly, but also efficient and gifted in... More

I stayed recently for a short (very short!) break with my disabled sister-in-law, who found the ground-floor special needs suite very well thought out, warm and comfortable. Although my room was not en-suite, it had a private bathroom and the thoughtful addition of robes for guests' use meant it wasn't a big deal to cross the landing to it. The... More

We first spoke to John, the owner, back in Australia while we were booking our room and following a bit of banter back and forth about the Ashes, already felt like we knew him before we arrived!

Dear Champkis, I have to say that we, too, enjoyed your stay with us, for which many thanks. It is very kind of you, taking the time to write this review. We would like to say that we couldn't agree more nor could we have put it better ourselves. But that would be very, very immodest of us wouldn't it?... More
