“Relaxation amidst the frenzy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2010

I stayed here between June 9th and June 13, 2010. Being smack in the middle of the World Cup the establishment was fully booked. Even though she had a packed house Angie was the most gracious of hosts giving personalized attention to each one of the groups. She asked us about our travel plans and made sure we had the correct maps and information. You could tell that she genuinely cared about her guests and she went above and beyond the call of duty. We had problems with our rental car and she checked up on us to make sure we were OK.

We stayed in Loft 1, The "Fire" Themed the room - more like an Apartment was HUGE! 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, living room area and a wonderful loft area. I the decor was chic and modern, with lovely Asian influences. I could easily move in and live there. We also spent one night in Studio 4, with the water theme. The room was smaller, not a loft but yet very bright and airy. Both rooms were spotlessly clean.

The garden area is beautiful, clean and the Asian themes continue. There's a wonderful deck and open area. The songs of birds filled the air and I found myself doing my morning yoga and meditation in the middle of the deck.

Overall I had an amazing stay at Craighall Garden, Angie is an amazing host and I would return in a heartbeat.
