We enjoyed a wonderful weekend at the Craigerne hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owners Dougie and Joanna who could not have made us feel more welcome. The hotel is very tastefully decorated with some lovely items of furniture thrown into the eclectic mix, whilst we enjoyed a relaxing coffee Dougie explained the layout and history of the town, whilst my wife discussed the artwork which adorns the walls of the hotel with Joanna, and was delighted to find that the majority of items are in fact Joanna's own work. So thrilled were we with the use of tone, shape and colour that we ended up purchasing a couple of paintings which now take pride of place in our kitchen/ family room.
Our room which was one of the bay windowed rooms at the front was immaculately prepared, was spacious and provided stunning views south over the over the rugged landscape of the Highlands. After a day of golf on the Newtonmore course which is literally adjacent to the hotel and a late afternoon walk we spent the evening relaxing with a glass of wine in the garden around the fire which Dougie had constructed in the huge fire pit. As the evening turned a little chilly we were truly made to feel at home or like old friends when Joanna brought out woollen blankets to wrap around ourselves.
We eventually collapsed into the comfortable bed exhausted, but were revived in the morning before our long drive home with a continental breakfast and an ample supply of freshly roasted coffee.
If you are looking for a relaxing break in a homely clean and comfortable hotel where you are treated as long lost friends then my wife and I would certainly recommend Craigerne, it is great value for money and we will certainly return!
