This place gets ONE star because of the lovely girl on reception.
As for the food, you'll wish you're in a Turkish prison. It's horrible... cast your mind back to Britain in the era of the nightmarish guest house landlady... that's the kind of bad we're talking.
Haven't got the picture yet? Imagine what you would serve in a retirement home for war criminals. Then charge 1.5 times London prices.
The sausages were more toast than sausage, the steaks were more gristle than cow... If "punch in the face" were on the menu I would have ordered that and been happier with my choice.
Honestly, the look on our waiter's face when he took the plates away and asked "did you enjoy that?" He knew the answer. He knew it and was ashamed.
The hotel website lies about almost everything. There ISN'T free wifi throughout, you can only get it if you sit in the reception area that looks like the estate sale for a dozen vicars' wives.
And the dining room that people allegedly "book for weddings"? Ghosts wouldn't haunt it.
This is my first EVER bad review of anything but I have travelled the world and -all evidence to the contrary- I'm pretty low maintenance. It would take a LOT for me to write a scathing review.
The Craiglynne Hotel is a lot.
