“Just great !”
Reviewed 6 November 2009

We have stayed for 4 nights and had just a fantastic stay there. Room was the right size and very clean and cosy. Very helpful and friendly staff.Free high speed internet. The food was really delicious - great combinations, fantastic sauces, big choice for breakfast. Nice and peaceful place, friendly atmosphere, good laugh in the bar in the evening. There is not many hotels like this in Pitlochry but if you know where to go...

Overall our stay was good, staff were very friendly and helpful, room was clean if a bit too warm. The walls are paper thin so if like us you were unlucky enough to be in a room next door to someone who liked their TV loud you might not have the most relaxing stay, thankfully we were out most of the night.
My main gripe ( and this hotel is not unique in this) is about breakfast. First of all, no menu was available so we had no idea what was on offer and staff weren't very forthcoming with this information. Also one of us asked for only bacon and sausage and when it was brought to the table there were 2 bits of bacon and 1 sausage, the same as was given in the full breakfast. At £84 per night for a double room I would have wanted the staff to be more generous with the portions. I wouldn't purposely book this hotel again.

Great little hotel, well run with friendly staff and good food. Great location to explore the area, on site parking, real ale in the bar and fine selection of whisky. On a hill side (west Moulin Rd) about 500 mtrs from the town. It may not suit those unable to walk uphill any distance (ok if you have a car) - but it does have ground floor bedrooms

We had a wonderful week at the Craigvrack, we were lucky that the weather was fine, as we could take full advantage of the great views from the terrace. We have stayed in Pitlochry before but this hotel was a real find as the food was brilliant, staff friendly and a lovely wee bar too!! Other hotels in this area are crammed in with nothing to look at but other buildings/walls, this is very different and the reason you come to Pitlochry.

We recently stayed in Pitlochry for one night in order to see the Enchanted Forest. We ended up at the Craigvrack after our original booking at another hotel had to be changed due to building works. I was a little concerned at first about the walk up the hill with two young children but actually it wasn't far and there was plenty of parking in town if they didn't want to walk.

The hotel itself turned out to be lovely. All the staff were really warm and friendly and the room was extremely comfortable. We had a family room on the top floor and the kids loved the slightly sloping ceilings over their beds that gave them each their own little alcove to sleep in! The only thing I could have done with was a shower - there was only a bath with a spray attachment. And, as most other reviews have already said, breakfast was really good, with everyone's needs catered for! I would definitely stay there again if we decide to go back next year.
