Reviewed June 2, 2012

Just returned from a 3 night stay in Pitlochry. The Craigvrack was a brilliant find! we had not booked anywhere as decided on a whim, the weather was so good. We drove past and saw the beer garden which sold us on the hottest day of the year so far. We were lucky that they could accomodate us. We did initially book just 1 night but after dinner which was amazing, we decided to stay on. I jsut want to say a special thanks to Alan, the owner for his advice on places to go & see in the area & also for his whisky experience! All in all we had a great time, would highly recommend the hotel, spotlessly clean, pleasant staff food the best I have had in a very, very long time, even the weather was the best I have had in a very long time. Will return. Thanks to you all. The Gibsons

Stayed 2 nights during the ETAPE weekend. This was our first visit to the Craigvrack Hotel but it certainly wont be our last. We were met with a cheery smile from the owner and a lovely homely room overlooking the surrounding hills. After getting settled in we headed downstairs to the bar where they had a fantastic selection of whisky and a good choice of real ales. The bar had a friendly and relaxed atmosphere with a few friendly locals more than happy to chat with you. We were intending on having a couple of drinks before heading down into the town for dinner but after browsing the menu in there we decided to stay put. This turned out to be a fantastic choice!!!! The meal was first class!! I am quite fussy when it comes to ordering steak but im pleased to say that my steak was cooked to perfection, and not a steak knife in sight!! To sum up all I can say is that the Craigvrack is definately worth a visit, even if its just for a meal. Relaxed, friendly, a great menu and all at a fair price. We are already looking forward to our next visit, I just hope the weather is kinder for the cycle event!!

Just returned from a lovely chilling weekend in Pitlochry, to attend the Gallacher and Lyle concert at Pitlochry Theatre last night (26/3). This was a repeat visit for us to the Craigvrack Hotel. Excellent VFM Winter Warmer deal 3 x nts B&B for price of 2! Great service from friendly staff and cosy bar for a wee tipple. Even the weather was great. We will be back! Our thanks once again to Alan, Barbara & the team at Craigvrack!

We recently took our two grandchildren, 9 and 7, to see a pantomime at Pitlochry Festival Theatre and found that this was the only hotel which could accomodate all four of us. On arrival the welcome was friendly and much was made of the kids. The room was spotless and comfortable. What made it for the children was that they had their own room within the family room. When we came back in at night from eating in town, we were told that there was no problem with the children joining us in the bar instead since was quiet. Breakfast the next morning was served with a cheery smile and pleasant conversation and our granddaughter was taken outside to learn the names of some of the mountains and be shown the best spot for good photographs. The twqo members of staff we met certainly made us feel welcome, although we were just "single nighters", and were helpful and pleasant.

We always go away at Hogmany and were looking forward to a trip this year to Pitlochry. We were not disappointed! Alan greeted us and from then on the Hoolie started. The room was very clean, comfortable and warm. The staff very friendly and could not do enough for you.
Sammy worked her socks off from morning to night! Great crowd staying and had a ball.
Big plus was the street party on the 1st which enabled us to party on. We would like to come back again next year.

This is the second year running that we have stayed at this hotel for the New Year celebration. This year, as last, Alan, Barbara and all their staff did their upmost to ensure that our stay was comfortable and enjoyable, Alan even came out to grit the road and help my low profile tyred car get up the hill after a sudden snowfall on our arrival. The rooms are of a good standard, with all the amenities you could expect. The breakfasts were hearty and set you up for the day. The bar was well stocked and the locals made you welcome. I could not fault the hotel in anyway and will certainly be back.

Best new year we have had in a long time. Friendly, homely hotel, excellent staff and owners, great service and fantastic meals. We had our two dogs and were made to feel at home and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. And to top it all the snow came as we arrived on cue.
negatives in the room we had:- Beds could be doing with upgrading also the lack of a shower.
