Craigsanquhar House Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Craigsanquhar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 February 2014

I visited this hotel with my wife to meet up with a newly discovered relation. The hotel is an historic house in a remote location in the countryside which helps to create a relaxing atmosphere. We had beautiful views from our room. I found this one of the most enjoyable hotels I have stayed in and would have been more than happy to have stayed longer, even in February! I can appreciate that this hotel may not suit some people, especially those who expect service fast with a gym and a swimming pool. However you don’t go to this type of hotel to be hurried along, and for exercise you can go walking. We were not in a hurry and if you do not mind having to wait for your food to be freshly cooked, this is an ideal spot. This hotel appears to survive on weddings and I understand that it is well established for this and including the villas can cater for about 50 overnight.
The hotel itself is small with 13 rooms and only 3 were occupied when we were there for our 2 night visit.
The breakfast choice for cereals was limited with no fresh fruit (there was juice) but the choice for cooked breakfast more than made up for this. I tried the traditional Scottish fry on the first day, and smoked haddock with poached egg on the second day - all were fresh and excellently cooked and set us up for the day.
We had a bar snack one day for lunch and we all thought it very enjoyable and excellent value for money.
We had one evening meal which by chance was St Valentine’s night, which including hors d’oeuvres, sorbet and coffee was 7 courses and the main course of fillet steak was exceptional – it was definitely in the top 10 steaks I have tasted. The meal was the highlight of our stay at the hotel.
We went for the house wine which we found very drinkable – there is a choice of 8 – 4 white and 4 red. These are available either as a bottle or by the glass (¼ bottle). The difference between 4 glasses and 1 bottle was only 50 pence. This means that as a couple, we could each have a different white wine with the earlier courses and a red wine with the steak, for virtually the same price as a bottle. I wish restaurants in general would do this as it makes meals more enjoyable.
We were given a superior room which was large, well decorated and the bed was firm, very comfortable and we both slept well on both nights.
The hotel was in a good state of repair and all facilities appeared to be working. The grounds were pleasant for walking in even in February. The location, hotel decor and staff attitude all complemented each other to give a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere.
We booked directly with the hotel and they gave us a package in February that was better than available elsewhere. The prices in the restaurant and bar are a lot cheaper than I would have expected for an hotel of this standard.
We had a most relaxing stay in this hotel and will go back to this hotel when I visit Fife again.

Room Tip: Thompson Room was excellent

Our daughter Natalie and our son in law Ken held their wedding at Craigsanquhar on 31/12/ 2013.The whole experience deserves a five star rating.We occupied the hotel bedrooms and the four luxury lodges for three nights. The standard of accommodation is superb.The lodges are huge and easily accommodated the 40 guests we invited to our lodge for a New Years Day get together.
The ceremony was held on the grand stairway in the hotel and the reception in the function suit,both of which were beautifully decorated and set up for the occasion.The food was excellent,the staff friendly and helpful and the Scottish country house setting added hugely to the experience.Thanks to John and all his staff for making our daughters big day so special.

Slow service, despite the fact that everyone had ordered their food weeks in advance. Food was served so haphazardly that people had to start before their food got cold and were finished before others had started. The food itself was incredibly average, not what I expected. The only positive of this meal for us all was the red wine! I would not be venturing to craigsanquhar again.

We hired the Coach House for a Corporate event, followed by an evening wine tasting event, dinner, overnight stay and breakfast.......amazing!!

John and his team were exceptionally friendly and helpful before and during the event. The food in the restaurant was amaaaazing!!! The wine tasting event was very interesting and well worth the money. The rooms are very spacious and clean and the beds are so comfy.....we will definitely be back!!

A lovely secret of a hotel, way off the beaten track. We were guests at a wedding and were allow to check in early so that we could get ready at the hotel before the wedding. Special thanks to the domestic staff for getting the rooms ready and for help with the iron, and to the waiter who gave us all coffee when we arrived and then, later on, made sure that we were well supplied with water to rehydrate after excessive eating, drinking and blethering! The bedroom was very nice but the connecting door to the next room could do with a sound reducing seal of some sort. Thank you all for your kindly attention.

Room Tip: Room 6 has a connecting door to the adjoining suite

We were there recently for a wedding, the location is stunning, the hotel is very beautiful, it is a lovely place to get married. Unfortunately the Management don`t seem to be very people friendly, rather stiff and unwelcoming, however the day went smoothly the food was lovely, they had a clever set up when serving, the staff knew what we all eating, good job as a lot of folks couldn`t remember!! The venue was clean, had enough facilities, only down side was the car park was way too small to get out we had to perform a 72 point turn! If the Management could work on there people skills and find their smile it would make all the difference, this place has the potential to become one of the top wedding venues in the area due to location,setting and standards but is being let down by an unfriendly and cold Owner, Smile!! the`re free!!

We recently stayed at Craigsanquhar House whilst attending a wedding. We were in one of the "luxury" villas. Firstly to reach the " luxury" villas you had a to drive up a dirt-track to reach them, not good for your car!! Our bedroom was freezing cold as if it hadn't been aired for a long time. There were large cobwebs everywhere. None of the furniture in the room seemed to match, definitely no luxury anywhere. The bed was rock hard and very uncomfortable. The wedding was beautiful on the front lawn of the house, but the rest of the surrounding grounds and buildings need tidying up. The wedding reception was held in the coach house, which was very tired and run down, a good lick of paint would go along way. The food was excellent though. Trying to find our way back to the "Luxury" villas after the wedding was an adventure. There was absolutely no lighting. It was pitch dark and very dangerous, how Health and Safety allow this is beyond me. It is the most expensive place we have ever stayed in and I know we won't ever be back.
