This hotel is trading on its long held reputation. Granted it is a restaurant with rooms but the room we had was small, dated (so 80's) paper thin walls and rather poky bathroom. The bed was barely a double but comfortable enough for one night. The evening meal was patchy in standard, an excellent starter then a never-ending wait for main course. Of the two meals we had one excellent fillet steak and one very hard/overcooked pork fillet. The dessert was very mediocre. Having said that the breakfast in the morning was quite quickly served and it proved one of the best during our eight day stay in Scotland. The room was expensive for the quality (£120) and we were not amused to be charged £5.75 for a tray of tea that we were invited to take on our arrival. Everywhere else we stayed this was complimentary. The restaurant is bleak and you are made to feel as if you are in a church service rather than on an evening out. Gordon the "chef" is talked about in hushed and revered tones but we never saw him and I can't say it was justified. Get a life Creagan House..this is probably why you have dropped out of the Good Hotel Guide.
