“Great Nights Accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

Stayed here on route to Islay, we stayed in the First House and were not disappointed . The Hotel is more original than others and if full of character Old Worldly. No complaints. We ate in the Bar which was very busy but delivered on service and quality. Many thanks to all.

Tucked up at the top of the high street in Inveraray, and well worth a visit. Staff are helpful, friendly and knowledgable. Food is delightful and I think next time we come this way we shall book for a night or two so we can both taste the selection of whiskies. (Visited Thursday 14th June)

We booked room 9 for our Anniversary and were not disappointed .The room is very spacious with a lovely comfortable four poster bed, seated area with flat scream tv and a Jacuzzi bath which was delightful .Overall the decor is very tasteful . The restaurant has a great atmosphere and we had a lovely meal, the live music was great and staff friendly .

The Craigellachie Hotel is nothing short of AMAZING!! My husband was I charge of booking our Scotland vacation and he chose this hotel for our 2 night stay in the region to tour the Aberlour and Macallan distilleries. He did really well ladies!! Upon check in, our suite was complete with pink rose petals on the king sized bed, a dozen chocolates and huge bouquet of flowers! Having traveled all over Europe and England, this room was nothing short of huge and inviting! The bathroom was complete with all the luxurious amenities needed and the bedroom was oversized with plenty of room to spread out. There is no AC, but we were quite comfortable with the windows wide-open, dispute being near the highway, the noise was very minimal and there were zero bugs to speak of. The restaurant, The Copper Dog was great for breakfast, and closed to hotel guests only. While the menu simple, it was straight to the point. The dinner menu (open to the public) was varied and had great nightly specials. I suggest letting the front desk know you're interested in dinner to ensure you get a table! My husband had found (and picked) fresh rhubarb one day, and upon returning to the hotel, ran into the chef. After chatting briefly, he asked if we would like a rhubarb crumble for dessert - duh, of course we would!! Not only was dinner top notch that night, so was our custom dessert...as is the customer service! I would definitely return to this hotel, as well as recommend it to any traveler!

Popped in for an evening meal, great atmosphere, live music, friendly and helpful staff....and blown away by how good the food was! Really excellent meals and I would eat there all the time if it was closer.

We stopped off here on our way home down south, what a treat! Lovely building and excellent food and friendly staff - very welcoming. We would definitely make a point of calling again next time we're in Scotland.

I stayed at The George with my girlfriend for our final stop of our 5-day trip through Scotland.

We booked the Merchant room on a 'Sunday Snug' deal.

Upon arrival you are slapped in the face with the smell of an old boozy/smokey pub which i found quite fitting/amusing, however my girlfriend did't find it appealing.

Check-in was swift and abrupt. We weren't offered assistance with our luggage nor shown to our room.

As we entered the room, it smelled like 5 cans of wood polish/varnish had been used and it all looked a bit unclean. Lamp shade crooked, curtain rail not properly installed, creased bed-linen.

The room's themed decor i thought was quite amusing but my girlfriend found it rather tacky.

It was pretty noisy throughout the night especially as we had the windows open to have some fresh air and they overlook the car park and hotel bins.

The dinner at the pub downstairs was good and we enjoyed it.

Breakfast however wasn't amazing.

All in all pretty average and could use a good clean.
