“Lovely room, great value stop off”
Reviewed 18 June 2011

Our company holds events in Glencoe, Fort William and the Western Isles each month and the village of Crianlarich makes a good stop off en-route or return rest break. This was the first time at this accommodation, the value for money was good, the only let down was at breakfast.

1. Hot drinks and food held over our 7 week old daughters head as there wasn't room for her other than in her car seat in the walkway between two other tables as we were placed in the corner with nowhere safe for her.

2.Not asked what breakfast we'd like, eggs cooked etc just a plate put down in front of us without a word, not good when you don't like mushrooms and the rest of breakfast was swimming in mushroom juice and oil. The room info gives a menu choice for breakfast so we expected to be able to make our own choice as the book suggests.

3. My husbands plate was taken the second he'd finished (he eats quickly) making me feel very uncomfortable as I was still eating, when his side plate was then taken a minute later with the removal of the buffet I asked the woman if I was being given a subtle hint to go, no reply was given so I left without finishing at 9.05am which prompted a smile, enough said. Breakfast sittings until 9am we arrived at 8.45am! Very rude to be made to feel so in the way and rushed and there really is no excuse for clearing a plate when others on the same table are eating it's very bad manners!

The room was lovely, Charlie was a wonderful host and very polite and helpful, the food although not what I would have ordered given the choice was ok, Maybe she was just having a bad day although we arrived for breakfast 15 minutes before the last sitting so we shouldn't have been rushed out, it was lovely so maybe we will give it the benefit of the doubt as other reviewers appear to have stayed when she was being hospitable.

Room Tip: Family room great, no signal for mobile or wifi.

We received a marvelous reception from Charlie after we'd overextended ourselves on our walk from Rowardennan. Our bags were in our rooms - a godsend. The rooms were brand new, spotless & beautiful with an en-suite shower that was fabulous. Charlie went out of his way to phone a taxi firm for us for the next again day. He explained all the options by train or road to cut down our walk. Breakfast in the conservatory was all that you could ask for with plenty of chats & tips about that day's walk before a warm goodbye & a "haste ye back". I cannot speak too highly of Craigbank & it's host - It really was Hotel standard. GORDON & ROBIN

We stayed for 3 nights in April 2011 whilst on a hill-walking break.
We had an excellent time and can thoroughly recommend it.
The room was very comfortable, well equiped and welcoming.
Breakfast was delicious and the hosts were very welcoming and friendly.
Ideally situated for hill-walking. There is a drying room which we didn't actually need as the weather was surprisingly very good.
Would definitely stay again and would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends.

We had an overnight stop here and were met by our cheerful and welcoming host. Nothing was too much trouble!

Really comfortable, clean, and warm rooms, ensuite and TV. Excellent drying room and bags brought to the room. Breakfast was great too with plenty of choice and a fresh fruit option for those who wanted it. Overall a really happy experience. Choice of eating places nearby and a local shop.

We had broken the walk and Beinglas Farm and our host had arranged a taxi to take us to and from the Guest House. It all worked perfectly and made for a really relaxing stay.

found the place by accident on the internet & saw the reviews. Easy to find, great location to do lots of things & close to pubs for your team.

Welcome great & very friendly, room was just right & had everything I needed. Bed was comfy & had a great nights sleep. Good breakfast that set me up for my trip over to Mull.

Already planning my extended stay for when I come up to Scotland next so I can get in some of the West Highland Way

Stayed here at the weekend for two nights and it was fab. Immaculately clean and well equipped.
Would just suggest that some mirrors are put on the walls in the bedrooms, as it was very difficult to dry hair and stretch to see yourself in the bathroom mirror. A very minor suggestion though, and certainly only a small niggle. Apart from that, this place was almost perfect-excellent value for money and very friendly hosts. The conservatory is a lovely venue for breakfasts in the mornings and the electric blankets were great, as the weather for May was a tad on the cool side. Just putting that on for 20 minutes before bedtime was a great treat!
I would recommend Craigbank for a very pleasant stay in Crianlarich :)

Room Tip: Book early!!!

Yes Charlie is a legend, four of us stayed on one of our West highland Way nights. We arrived tired and wet and were welcomed and sent for hot baths whilst our wet clothing was hung up to dry. Lovely rooms and great breakfast.
