We stayed for 2 nights. The room as nice although the toilet was a bit broken. Workmen were refitting rooms above and from 8 am dropped rubble baths etc past our window which was disconcerting and noisy. Very hot weather but this old building remained cool. Breakfast dreadful; no croissants or rolls. I asked for poached eggs which arrived in... More

This is the third and last time we will stay at Craiglands Hotel. Our stay started quite well, we were shown up to a reasonable sized room, with a very small ensuite that could have done with some TLC but we've stayed in worse. Our problems started when we went down to get a drink and arrange an evening meal.... More

This hotel is awful. It was booked for a group of corporate business travellers, myself and colleagues. When we arrived, it was in our minds to turn back and look for the nearest Travel Lodge which would probably have been infinitely better. The hotel is very tired and in desperate need of renovation and cleaning. The toilet in my colleagues... More
