Craigvar
Ranked #1 of 9 Strathpeffer B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 October 2012

Bathrobes, sweet sherry and a fantastic bathroom in both rooms booked by my family. Apart from supporting Ross County, the owners could not do enough. Wedding guests, who were staying in other hotels in Strathpeffer, could not believe what Craigvar offered. Most had said, along with my family, that they would not hesitate to book the Craigvar. Breakfast menu was excellent and covered all tastes. Will definately return to this Guest House.

We stayed at Craigvar for a wedding. We stayed in the blue room. The owners couldn't be nicer. They add their personal touches to the room including sherry. Room and bathroom was lovely and clean. Breakfast menu offered a great selection. Breakfast was lovely and freshly cooked and my husband said the black pudding was the best he had ever tasted. Would highly recommend it.

I cannot recommend highly enough this wonderful bolt hole in Strathpeffer, marks out of 10 would be 20!! The bedroom, bathroom and facilities are excellent. Margaret has decorated the house with love and it shows with beautiful touches everywhere.
What a joy to stay here. Thank you.

We spent one night in this property and our welcome was wonderful. We couldn't have asked for more - Margaret even served us a tray of tea in her beautiful sitting room when we arrived. Our accomodation was described as a "twin room" it was more than that it was a suite. The bedroom was situated on a corner very light and airy with beatiful rooms, we also had a dressing room and a fabulous full sized shower room leading off of it. Breakfast was of a high standard - would recommend unreservedly.

We spent one night in Strathpeffer on our tour of the Highlands and Margaret was true delight! Her B&B right in the middle of Strathpeffer is beautifully maintained, the room was extremely spacious and very tastefully decorated, and the bathroom was HUGE! Margaret is a lovely host and is full of great recommendations (her recommendation of Cafe India in Dingwall was a hit!). Parking on location is a big plus too. The breakfast was wonderful. Wonderfully firm beds and fabulous sheets! We highly recommend Craigvar.

Margaret runs a really nice B&B here. Craigvar is a beautiful house, very cosy and warm. The room is very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. We were lucky to stay here, there was a late cancellation and we managed to book the same day. Could not have been any better! Just a shame about the restaurant next door, Red Poppy, could be so much better... but anyway, this is for another review. Craigvar: 5 Stars! I highly recommend it.

Only stayed one night; wish I had booked for longer. Beautifully decorated and maintained Georgian home. I stayed in the Beige Room. Sweet sherry supplied on dressing table.. which was a welcome surprise!! Friendly and welcoming owner who gave great advice re where to find a place to eat. Breakfast was beautifully cooked and presented... everything about Craigvar is just excellent and I can't recommend it highly enough. Beautiful spa town with lots of interesting things to do and see in the area... only 40 mins from Inverness airport and also excellent value.
