Stayed at the craignelder the night before a trip to Ireland. Our room on the ground floor was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The bed was king size and very comfortable. We ate in the restaurant and our meal was delicious. Breakfast was also very good. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We would recommend as a place to... More

Visited the Craignelder Hotel for a meal on Saturday 3rd September 2016. My husband and I both had a starter and main. The food was to a very high standard and well presented. The only negative was that we couldn't fit in a dessert. Next time, I will forego the starter as, I really want to sample a dessert. All... More

Myself and a few colleagues have stayed here three times now and each time we've been treated very well - above and beyond in fact. Massimo in the bar is great, the staff are great, beds are comfy and everything is spotless. I'm a very big fan, and recommend you visit soon.

We had an evening meal on 2 consecutive nights and the amount of food was amazing. The starter was big enough to have as a meal, and the main course was also overwhelmingly huge. So much so that we couldn't possibly have dessert.The other point is that it was delicious and served by warm welcoming staff.

We chose this hotel because we didn't want to make the entire drive to the Stena port in Cairnryan from Edinburgh on the day of departure. The room was small, but clean with all of the amenities that you'd find in a larger hotel. We had dinner in the dining room and it turned out to be the happening place... More

Stayed for a 2 night weekend break and had a lovely stay. The room we had wasn't big but had everything we needed. Ate in the hotel both nights and thought the food was excellent, as it was at breakfast. Staff were very happy to help with any questions. Will definitely return for another stay.

The room although not huge had everything you could possibly need. Most importantly it was very clean. The people were very friendly and welcoming. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was excellent. We left too early for breakfast on the first day but were offered a packed lunch which was unexpected and very tasty. Overall lovely... More
