Fantastic stay! I booked the guest house just for a wee break and a treat for my partner's birthday weekend. Cannot fault a single detail! John and Irene were so welcoming, and the coffee & home baking on arrival was just fab. The room was beautiful, not a thing out of place and attention paid to every detail. Irene's cooking... More

If I start this response, "Dear Lushlips" it is going to sound like one of those gushy Valentine's messages, so forgive me, but I won't. What I will do, though, is thank you for taking the time to leave your delightful comments on here, for other potential guests to see. We very much enjoyed having you stay with us -... More

We stayed overnight at Crubenbeg House on our journey to Orkney. It's position is very convenient. John was extremely helpful and welcoming. The room was beautifully appointed with a superb en-suite. It was a delight to stay there. Breakfast was great. We would particularly recommend Irene's cranachan and would thoroughly recommend staying there. Very good value for money.

Our first idea, when we left the gate of Crubenbeg House was, when we can come back again? Friendly home atmosphere, comfortable accommodation and excellent breakfasts hardly can express the best 9 days of our holiday. Vladimir C. and my family

We booked for two nights whilst on a mountain biking trip, in order to have somewhere relaxing each evening after exhausting ourselves on the trails. We weren't disappointed! The welcome we received from John and Irene was fantastic, they gave us a room upgrade (not that I think the other room wouldn't have been satisfactory!) and the rooms came with... More

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).

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.

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.

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!
