“D, P and T Happy Stay at Craig-Y-Don”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Just returned from 4nights at this excellent Hotel. We had a warm welcome and received the best of hospitality from the friendly helpful staff, everyone greeted us each day with a smile and a friendly word. Our room was spacious and very clean, the whole Hotel is kept to a high standard and the breakfast excellent choice of nicely cooked food plus cereals etc and a table allocated by room number ensures a good start to the day.
The hotel is centrally located on the promenade, has a good bar and evening entertainment suitable for families.
Very happy to recommend.

Room Tip: Seaview room very nice outside noise very little when window open.

Myself, my husband and my mother-in-law had a 2 day stay at the hotel recently and I have to say the hotel offered a fabulous service. The staff were wonderful, the only names I can remember are the beautiful Laura and the equally beautiful Neil.
The entertainment whilst we were there was top notch and having the hotel in such a fabulous location made it all the better. To look out over the sea every morning was a treat.
The other residents were extremely chatty and everyone got on very well together which again I think stems from the wonderful staff who are so helpful. We had a wonderful time, thanks to everyone who works there.

Room Tip: Try and get a sea facing room on the 1st floor - room 24 where we stayed was great.

Have been taking our family to the craig-y-don for 7 years now twice a year, and it just seems to get better each time. Family run hotel which caters to all, from Guy &Barbara all the way down to the cleaning staff all freindly and cheerfull and willing to help. Breakfast excellent, and a good choice. Entertainment first class. Rooms cleaned beds made daily, clean and tidy all through. Neil at reception always up for a bit of a laugh. Cant fault this hotel, our family are looking forward to returning in October. Well done Craig-Y-Don, keep it up. 10/10. Lorraine Ian & the girls.

Room Tip: All rooms great,

Recently Enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Craig-Y-Don. Food and service were excellent. Room was nice and clean, it didn't have a sea view but no big deal as we don't want to spend a holiday in the hotel room. Cabaret was great and the kids really enjoyed themselves. Would recommend to anyone.
