“Great Hotel - great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2009

The Craiglynne is a lovely hotel. We had a nice meal included on our first night. All of the staff were very friendly and very helpful. Staff members Chrissie and Kelly were very good to us as were the serving staff, and the night porter who let us have lots of lovely drinks into the night was great also. I would definately stay there again and would recommend this hotel.

we had a 2 night stay at this hotel 26th-28th and have to say the staff here are the most helpful you could get.. They go that little bit extra for you and nothing is too much trouble for them. The food was excellent, and served with such efficiency . we would recommend this hotel as a friendly well run establishment

We got a fantastic deal through a third party website for DBB. The room had obviously been recently redecorated and looked great. It was a bit on the small side and the view was of a wall (Room 127) but because we got such a great deal, I wouldn't dream of complaining - we didn't go for the view, or to spend much time in the room.

Dinner and breakfast was great value. Possibly only let down by the prices at the bar - £3.45 a pint - although there are a couple of good pubs a short walk in to the village. And of course Inverness is only a short journey away in the car for pubs 'n' shopping.

Don't go if you are looking for party central, we were the youngest there by at least a generation, sometimes 2, but it made for a really relaxing break. We luckily got the weather on our side so spent lots of time out exploring the park and down by the river. Oh and no signal on Vodafone but maybe that's a good thing?

All in all we had a lovely time, the staff we dead friendly. We'd happily take the wee room with no view again, although not for much more than we paid this time.

Just back from a four-day stay in the Craiglynne and really enjoyed myself.

The staff were very courteous and efficient, the meals were ample and excellent, the rooms were clean and freshly decorated and the location was great.

There is a lovely park right across from the hotel that is home to deer and other wildlife andis great for an after-dinner stroll.

Highly recommended.

Great sfaff and good value let down by a small room with tiny bathroom (114) and cleanliness of the bathroom left a lot to be desired.Bar prices were on par for a 5 star hotel £3.45 a pint and over £5 for a small G&T. otherwise a pleasant stay.

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review on our hotel. I was concerned to read the points highlighted. In respect of the cleanliness of your bathroom, I can assure you, this is not normal practice and we generally do have positive feedback regarding cleanliness.

A small Gin & Tonic is priced at £3.60 which is very competitive with local prices.

We are pleased you enjoyed your overall stay with us and thank you for your feedback as this is vital to us, if we are to improved and monitor areas of our operation that may otherwise be letting us and or our guests down.

Kindest Regards
