Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Claonairigh House for 3 nights of our Scotland holiday. It was wonderful. Fiona went out of her way to make us comfortable. The building is quaint and classic. You felt like you had arrived into an 18th century novel when you turned the corner into the drive. The room was cozy and comfortable. The hot water was abundant. Breakfast had numerous options and was plentiful. Thank you so much for a great stay.

We stumbled across this place by accident and what a happy accident it was! After leaving behind a terrible experience in dunoon we were rather frantic about finding somewhere to stay that night. Coming across this place in the middle of know where was like a dream. It's wonderfully quaint and has a great history. Owners and dogs were lovely and very welcoming. The breakfast was superb rivaling any of the bigger hotels we staying in that week. Lots of lovely options to choose from it was hard to decide. We both went for the cooked breakfast which was fab, partner would of liked some black pudding or haggis but for me it was perfect. Loved the communal style of all the guests at the one big table and the offer of fresh fruit, lovely donut peaches and melon was a nice touch rather than the usual fruit cocktail. I was also pleased with how accommodating fiona was with my gluten free toast which she gladly toasted for me no problem. We stayed in the winnie the pooh room which I found to be absolutely adorable. The room was clean and the en-suite was brilliant. It has lovely big windows on either side so it was nice and breazy making for a very comfortable night. Price I thought was excellent value for money at £55 including breakfast. Only disappointment being we didn't book another night, it would of been nice to spend more time with the owners and other guests, however not to worry we will definitely be back! Thanks for a wonderful stay. Hannah and Sam :)

The property is like a post card. It's simply amazing. The Corners are terrific. Everything was in order. We slept like babies. Breakfast was outstanding. Fiona has the best tea and lemon cake in Scotland. We really enjoyed chatting the evening we arrived and learning about the property. We were missing our own border collie, Ringo, and the Corners were generous in lending us Holly and Nancy to play with. They were a big hit with our teenage sons. I also really liked the "take-a-book" in our room. Nice touch. Thanks for an all-too-short stay, but a terrific one!

Claonairigh house was the best b&b we stayed during our journey in Scotland last month. As soon as we arrived my daughter said : "Mum, this is Cinderella's home!!!!" It's really a lovely countryside house three miles far from Invereray.We got all the rooms since we were six and we could not decide how to settle because they were all beautiful and decorated with care and love .Fiona was a special host and gave us useful information about where to have dinner in Inveraray ringing to book a table for us. The next morning she prepared a delicious breakfast: we enjoyed Fiona's waffles with bacon and eggs or jam, hand made bread, and any other things we could guess. Our children played with her two friendly dogs in the garden and we were really sad to leave this fairytale.....I should tell it's an excellent B&B from any point of view: my only regret is not to have booked in advance two days instead of one :there are a lot of places you can see from Invereray(that is very interesting with its castle) such as Lock Lomond, Oban and Glencoe. Thank you Fiona

A 270 years old farm house, renovated without losing the charm of former times but with all you need. A lot of pretty dedails. The breakfast is very good. The owners are friendly people. It was a pleasure to stay and we would like to be there again

Stayed for a couple of nights in July. Great welcome from the two resident collie dogs! Hostess also very welcoming and friendly! Stayed in the themed Hobbit room which was comfortable and fun. Breakfast hit the spot and the conversation both days with the other was guests stimulating. Thoroughly recommend this place as a base with so much to see and do locally.

Fiona welecomed us, gave dinner recommendations, and even offered to make me two breakfasts when I couldn't decide between the plethora of options. Location was a little bit further outside of town than we had originally realized but this didn't impact us too much.

We stayed in this bnb for one night while traveling. Fee greeted us with homemade cake and tea. She was incredibly friendly! The room was spacious with everything we needed. The bed was a bit firm for my liking but my husband liked it. The homemade breakfast was so enjoyable! We had the waffle with egg and bacon and fruit. We left completely satisfied! Plus their pups are adorable and so playful!

This past June, my husband and I stayed at bucolic Claonairigh House. We were searching for a unique place to begin our two week exploration of Scotland and Claonairigh was the perfect base for our first stay. Weeks before, I emailed Fiona and requested specific driving directions from Glasgow and she immediately responded with detailed and humorous directions. I know we had chosen the right place. Upon arrival, we fell right in with the country setting, the family Border collies greeted us with their throwing sticks, the ducks scattered across the lawns, and the rooster stood his ground. Garret greeted us with a pot of tea and cake, very appreciated after our inaugural morning of driving on the left side of the road (our driving did improve, but apologies to the many Scots)! Our hosts offer a relaxed home, yet pay attention to detail. The breakfasts were fresh and filling, and one can request a duck egg, if available. Our double room was comfortable and I never tired of looking out the window to view the cottage and ruin. At the end of our vacations, my husband and I usually reflect on what we might do differently, for planning our next trip. Typically he mentions a new city or country, but this time he responded, "Oh return to Claonairigh House and stay longer," Aye, well said.
