We stayed here for three nights and could not have stayed at a nicer place. Our room was a large twin room which we were grateful for as we had a border collie with us! We couldnt have asked for anything better. The views from the room were fantastic to wake up to.
Although we didnt eat in the restraunt as we had a dog with us, we ordered food and ate in the room, highly redommended menu, far exceeded our expectations.
The bar was cosy and welcoming.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful our special thanks to Tracey for her kindness nothing was too much trouble.
Highly recommended hotel, just wish we could have stayed longer!

The hotel, location and facilities were all top class, but the staff are the most attentive I have ever met. No request was too much and they took a genuine interest in you. We stayed for a couple of nights and needed to catch the early train on the second morning, before breakfast would have normally been served. I expected to be able to request a continental breakfast on a tray maybe at most, but the lovely lovely lady (I'm sorry that I didn't get her name) made sure that she was personally up half an hour early the next morning to make sure that the whole breakfast room had been set up for us and came over with a fresh pot of tea! If I am back in that neck of the woods I'll go out of my way to stay there again! Loved it! Incidentally I wasn't expecting a chain hotel to provide a drying room for wet walking gear, but this one does!

Had a three night stay in this hotel. Staff were excellent, nothing was a problem. Very friendly and chatty - can't say enough in their favour! Rooms are slightly dated but very clean - we upgraded to another room as the original bed was a bit small. Fine if your skinny (we're not). All in all a very enjoyable break.

Room Tip: Pay the wee bit extra for the larger room / bed. Well worth it!

We have just returned from a two night stay in The Crianlarich for The Colonsay gathering. The hotel was so comfortable we were reluctant to leave, the public areas are great with lots of comfy sofas and a cosy snug area which is great for having an afternoon drink and a game of cards. Our room had everything we needed, was very clean and the bed was very comfortable.
The food was nice and we particularly enjoyed our breakfast. One of the most impressive elements was how friendly and helpful all members of staff were. We had our dog with us and she was made very welcome and was even brought some dog treats to go with our afternoon tea!
A great stop off if you are on a tour of the highlands, highly recommended.

We stayed at the Crianlarich hotel as we were attending a function on the Saturday night. We had never stayed before, despite passing on our way to Oban many tines. From the moment we checked in were made to feel very welcome.

Our room was small but very comfortable and had everything we needed including complimentary wifi which worked well.

All of the staff were extremely accommodating, offering attentive yet friendly service throughout our stay. The manager Joan, was particularly helpful, even fetching us bacon rolls and tea when we missed breakfast on Sunday morning!

The public areas of the hotel are lovely; there are little snugs, comfy sofas and toasty fires to relax by. We were enjoying ourselves so much we ended up staying an extra night! And we'll definitely be back.
