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.

Huge bed and accommodation on ground floor which is what we asked for. Lovely meal in the restaurant and tasty breakfast. Very clean and a beautiful view of the ferry across the road. Very nice bathroom, good parking and a nice position on the sea front.

We stayed here recently and we were so happy we did. We needed a double room somewhere in the town that was close to the ferry. We tried a few places and they had no vacancies. And lastly we tried here and the gentleman in reception was so welcoming and kind. We stayed in room 12, it was huge, spacious... More

Had to stay two nights on this trip to have a business meeting, this is a nice family run hotel clean and tidy, breakfast is enough to keep you going till dinner. Room 9 has a good view of the bay, but with no noise from the main road with windows. Will use again on my next business trip.

We had a party over on mayday weekend for a golfing break. The owner kindly booked the courses for us in a golfing package. The deal was excellent, as was his hotel. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. I would highly rate this whole experience and we will definitely be back in the near future. TOP... More
