Stayed here a couple of weeks ago with my partner and our dog. We were very well looked after by all of the staff who are extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. We were given a garden room so we could take our dog straight onto the garden which were very well kept. The hotel is...

We've been coming to this house for 23 years now and have always thought the establishment needed to keep it 'tight' with the quality of the rooms. It is only now since a recent visit that we've noticed how very poor the place has got. The room we had was quite small not to mention the ensute was so small...

Thank you for taking the time to review us. It is very unfortunate that you didn't enjoy your stay as much as intended. As always we are running a refurbishment schedule with 8 of our rooms being updated in the new year. I believe the quality of the hotel is constantly improving as it has always been. In fact, we've...

Great place to stay very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are lovely and the food was great. Everything we needed for a night away. The hotel had nice grounds that overlooked the lake and nice open fires to get warm and relax in front of after a walk. Would recommend and stay again.

We chose Cragwood because we wanted a quiet and intimate wedding. Having read previous reviews we rang and spoke to Albert the Manager and Kathleen the wedding co-ordinator asking questions to ensure the venue would suit our needs.
