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

Stayed at the Craignelder Hotel whilst visiting friends nearby. What a lovely hotel - very clean, the staff were really friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was beautifully decorated with lovely touches, large bed room and bathroom and plenty of space to hand your clothes. A wonderful 'Scottish' breakfast was served each morning but also there... More

The rooms are on the small side but fair for the price, the food is very nice with a great variety. Beautiful views, cosy bar area. Somewhat lacking in parking. Modern amenities are fitted throughout unlike its sister hotel (also local). This hotel is my first choice every time I am working in the area.
