“Fantastic guest house ideally located”
Reviewed 14 November 2011

I stayed at the guest house while walking the Trossachs Trail. At the end of a long day I found the welcome to be very friendly, the room very comfortable; clean with wonderful facilities and a fantastic full scottish breakfast in the morning. The hosts could not have been more welcoming or obliging in any way.

The location of the guest house is a short 5 minute walk away from the main tourist attraction of Dochart Falls but still central for all the towns facilities such as bank, bus stop, restaurants and cafes.

As a regular traveller for both work and leisure I would not hesitate to book this guest house again, for either purpose.

Thank you for a fantastic stay; I shall certainly re-book when I am next in the area.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 6 which was at the top of the house but had a fantastic large shower cubicle, fully...

Even though arriving very late (after 9.30 pm), Vic gave us a very warm welcome. Our nice room right under the roof was tidy and we felt very comfortable. The clean bathroom with the spacious shower and the towel heater further added to our good impression.
In the morning, we enjoyed Sue's delicious and freshly prepared breakfasts. Don't miss their specials: the Salmon or the Kedgeree!!
Vic and Sue were great hosts and we enjoyed all the chats with them. They provided us with excellent hiking hints (including maps) and were extremely helpful with whatever question or request we had.
We booked three nights in advance and - without hesitation - extended our stay.

On arrival our first impression was of that some public areas were in need of some TLC ie paintwork etc.There was an odour of domestic animals in the entrance hall.The bathroom appeared "grey" not properly cleaned and there were large cobwebs in the bedroom corners. From a previous submission there appears that little improvement has taken place in this field.Another negative as far as we were concerned was the fact that a shelf fixed to a wall to hold tea tray and electric kettle was at eye level a sure recipe for an accident with hot liquids.On the plus side the bed was the best we had slept on since leaving home.The breakfast was cooked to order and was hot and plentiful.
We would not consider staying again.

We stayed at this hotel for one night during September 2010.

Killin is an amazing town, sadly this B&B is not.

The B&B is in a pretty good location in the town and the owners are friendly and helpful.

Our twin room was a decent size but the toilet was very cramped and did not seem to have been cleaned for weeks. The bed was quite comfortable but could haven been much better.

The breakfat was quite good but was only sereved between 0815 and 0915 and we had to check out by 1000.

We had just one night but a comfortable stay at Craigbuie on a cycling holiday. The rooms were lovely. The hotel is located right on the main street through town. It was not too noisy for us and easy to find. We appreciated the variations available for breakfast and the food was good.

This was our second visit to Craigbuie and on both occasions we had the most fantastic time. We had travel problems this year and did not arrive at the guest house until 10.30 p.m. but Vic and Sue gave us a fantastic welcome. The room was excellent with a lovely view. Everything was provided that you could possibly need. Breakfast was excellent, served by Vic and cooked by Sue. They were always happy to chat to us. One of our party was ill this year and Vic and Sue sorted out a doctor for him and even took him to the surgery. I would recommend that you visit this guest house. You won't be disappointed.
