My partner booked two nights at Craigadam as a summer treat for us - and somewhere warm and dry to come back to if we got wet (and we did!) while pootling about in a motorcycle & sidecar. Craigadam is comfortable and beautifully-appointed, and we found the staff particularly kind and obliging. We were offered a life-saving cup of tea on arrival, which we enjoyed in the elegant drawing room. Breakfast was delicious, plentiful and of exceptional variety. Returning to the house after dinner on our first evening, we indulged in a game of billiards, assisted by a drink from the well-provisioned, unstaffed bar. Craigadam is relying on the honesty of their guests, asking only that you make a note of what you've had in the book. We liked this attitude very much.
From our point of view the only negatives were the absence of a shower in our bathroom, the difficulty of getting fresh air into our very warm bedroom, and the fact that the room (not in the main house) was located directly above a family kitchen, so rather noisy. This is not the place for a romantic evening in!
Don't miss the *fabulous* organic lamb produced by Craigadam, which you can enjoy not only if you have dinner in, but also at several nearby pubs. I have never tasted better.
