“Cheerful and Comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2008

From Margaret's warm welcome to her lovely breakfast, the stay at Craigvar was enjoyable. The Blue Room was spacious, spotless and very comfortable. Lots of little details (like sherry and biscuits in the room) helped to make it exceptional. Strathpeffer is a darling village and would make a good (and peaceful) base for traveling around the Inverness area. Our only wish is that we could have been there longer.

This is a beautiful B&B with a lovely owner in a great location. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner, and she had put some lovely little touches in the room to make it feel like home.

Can't recommend it enough!

we stayed in the blue room, we especially liked the victorian bath - one complaint though - carpet in the bathroom is never a good idea, its just asking to get soaked.

breakfast was good and the hosts were polite and kind.

excellent area, right on the square, beautiful to walk around.

Right across from the square in the historic Victorian spa town of Strathpeffer, you cannot beat the location. Our room was huge: a separate dressing area, huge bathroom and sitting area, along with two twin beds. There were free snacks (fruit, crisps) and complimentary sherry in the room. Beautifully maintained. A delicious breakfast. For the price it is downright luxurious. An added bonus: Saturday night in the summer the local pipe band and Highland dancers perform right outside the front door! It is perfect and not to be missed.
