Awful !! booked in advance, staff didn't tell us our room was above the bar where live music would be playing until 1 in morning. No sleep and up for early ferry. Over priced for what is really a pub with rooms and a noise level which is intolerable in the early hours of the morning!! Won't ever be back... More

This hotel is a real treat. Our room had the best available views of the harbour and was very comfortable. We received a warm welcome from the helpful and informative receptionist. We loved the room and it was difficult to leave for dinner. Rooms are sizeable and beds comfy. Free on site parking and free WIFI are added plusses.

My friend and I visited the hotel for an evening meal and enjoyed THE best sirloin steaks I've ever tasted! The entire meal was fresh, beautifully cooked and extremely tasty and served by waitresses who were just delightfully friendly and efficient and the dining room was spotlessly clean and very welcoming. My only gripe would be that the main course... More

IF you would like to book stay in this hotel, I would more than recommend that you do NOT rely on phone calls... get in all confirmed by email. I was stupid enough to book and then cancel by phone... but still ended up hundreds out of pocket because Craigard had not accepted my cancellation verbally.

The staff are fantastic and very helpful and efficient . All our meals were also brilliant. There is a choice of places to eat including the bar, lounge with open fire or the large conservatory...

Our room was small, with a tiny ensuite shower room and basin in the bedroom. It was warm and comfortable, but the decor was a bit tired. It did however have a stunning view of the bay and castle. The breakfast was good, with a reasonable selection of juice, cereals and nicely cooked items made to order. All the staff... More
