Just back having orgainised a group of six of us based at the above for a walking week-end. It exceeded our expectations in every way.
The hotel was warm (2nd week of January) thoughout. All the staff we met were friendly & helpful, the food served in the dining room and the breakfast room was extensive in choice and plentiful in quantity. Even with a couple of our chicken dishes coming out cooler than we would have liked, they were replaced immediately with new piping hot ones. The Cullen Skink starter is to be particularly recommended, almost a 'knife and fork' meal on it's own.
Rooms were of a good standard, the beds were VERY comfortable with all of us having a great sleep wherever we were roomed, and the views from the front rooms were spectacular with the mountains & hills snow covered.
One of the rooms only had a rubber attachment on the bath for a shower, inadequate in this day and age, but we understood that there is a refurbishment programme this year, which hopefully will address these areas, as well as the baths without a regulated shower on them.
Even with the above comments, it is worthy of five starts for what we paid. Excellent value for money, a great base to explore the beautiful highland scenery, and a hotel which is clearly well run and managed.
Too many Scottish hotels can leave a guest disappointed on facilities/food/ service. The Crianlarich is NOT one of those. We would ALL be more than happy to return to enjoy all what was offered. Well done to the management and staff for an excellent product.
