Visited hotel for afternoon tea. Itison deal, didn't feel for one second it was a deal. The room that tea was serviced is afa Bonnie. Furnishings immaculate. White linen and cups. The afternoon tea was outstanding, massive selection of goodies, so tasty. On a personal note I had gluten free option. Never tasted such fine scones. All staff a delight....

Stayed one night and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. Great restaurant and bar onsite - will not disappoint! The hotel staff and restaurant staff were fantastic as well - excellent service at every level. The hotel bar had an immense selection of single malts and my husband was in whisky heaven!

This isa charming hotel best known for the number of whiskies avaiable. But the restaurant is also worth a meal or too. We had the steak board for two and the local beef really is to brag about. Only problem was the staff. The person in charge was competent but the rest of the staff were amateurs.

We loved our stay at the Craigellachie, food was great, warm cosy atmosphere, spotless throughout and dogs were totally spoiled from the moment we arrived. Great walks on the doorstep, perfect for a relaxing trip. The whiskey bar is out of this world! We will be back

We had a fantastic time, the food was lovely and staff very attentive. My children booked the table as part of a birthday surprise and I'm so glad they did, the meal was the perfect end to a perfect day.

Stayed for 3 nights and was quite happy with my stay. I was put in a ground floor room which turned out to be a disability suitable room but that was fine - more space. The room was spacious comfortable and had a nice view. I did have a power cut in my room one night but once I rang...

We had lunch here before visiting Glenfiddich Distillery. We had Scotch Broth followed by Haddock. Service was excellent and the food very tasty. Would eat here again and would recommend this place to others.

“Higher floors have better views. They all seem to look over a gravel parking lot and trees.”
  • This was our room #. Not much of a view, ground floor. However, was just fine!
