The place is ideally located on the seaside promenade. Beautiful views from some rooms. It is in need of maintenance and a bit of investment from the owners. The manager and staff are all very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home.

We have been staying at the Craigrownie Guest House for the past 5 years. It needs an upgrade. The wifi did not work and so the TV. We battle to get the doors locked it might be either rusted or get replaced.

Dear Valued guest Thank you for the review, we are trying out best with the connection to wi-fi and tv. The doors are very tight, I agree, we are trying to either have them all changed or have them made easier to open and close. Sorry about your experience, we are working on all it. Kind regards Leyla More

We experienced the most bizarre welcome at Craigrownie Guest House. The lady who welcomed us was dressed in her dressing gown and slippers! It is not like it was very late at night either.. It was only 6pm and there were other guests sitting in the lounge area and she was prancing around dressed like that. It was very difficult... More

The guesthouse is well positioned but badly managed. There's no one on site after 3pm to assist with problems that arise such as door knobs that are broken, TVs that don't work... And no response from anyone when you require an answer. Fruit in the fruit bowl was rotten and overall not a great experience. Parking is near impossible.

Excellent stay and strongly recommended. Quiet, professional with a lovely view in a beautiful setting. Aa small dip pool to cool down. The comfort of a hotel but the character of a home. Fresh fruit at night if you arrive late and pekish.
