Easy access to Crinan canal.

Posted 22-Jun-2016
Pros: Easy accessible to our onward journey.
Cons: More staff on duty.
Location: Walking easy. Canal nearby. Plenty of woodland walks. Wildlife nearby. Plenty to explore in nature. Quiet and peaceful.
Easy access and good views of Crinan canal.4 miles + return journey both ways . Easy walking. Staff welcoming and polite, but always seem to be short staffed. ONly appear to have one chef, even on Sunday's. Waiters/waitress double up as check in. Rooms clean . Food good but not cheap. On a return visit. Will return again

Watch for dog costs

Posted 12-Apr-2016
Hotel wasn't exactly clean in the room. We had notified the proprietor that we were bringing our dog only to charged £30 because our dog was said to be molting which caused hair to be on the bedclothes. She did have her own bed. My wife strongly wished to challenge this however I had received bad news about my poorly father and had no fight. Apart from that the rest of the staff whilst overworked due to lack of staff were nice and the food also. Blocked plugs in the room so to challenge you to charge anything. Watch for the extras dog lovers

Good but needs more attention to detail

Posted 29-Sep-2015 on Hotels
Hotel a little run-down, but comfortable room. Fabulous area to stay - great walks around Cairnbaan. Food was good, but service was a little slow and it took a long time to finish dinner.

Rubbish left in bin from previous occupants. Not asked how my stay was. Left 15 mins with a menu for dinner service while barmaid chatted with a customer.

Charming hotel with great food.

Posted 08-Aug-2015 on Hotels
We stayed for 1night with a lovely breakfast included in the deal. Our room was pleasant and clean. we did have a visit from 2 bats which I suspect had come in when the widows may have been opened earlier to air the room ready for our arrival. Don't worry, they were not harmed and accepted our invitation to leave by the window. This did not worry us as we felt it was a bonus to see these amazing creatures up close. I do understand however, that not everyone would have enjoyed this experience. So perhaps a wee check of the headboard would be a good idea! ( that's where ours were resting!) We also had dinner shortly after we arrived. The food was beautiful and the service by the waiting staff was friendly and attentive. The decor was perhaps a bit tired but I think that added to the charm! The location was peaceful and interesting with the canal close by.

Cairnbaan Hotel

Posted 08-Aug-2015 on Hotels
This hotel is right on the Crinan Canal, stunning views and lovely for gentle walking or hiking up the hills. Cycle hire nearby. Lovely little hotel with good menu, reasonable prices. In need of redecoration but would return again.

2 star with a 4 star price tag

Posted 06-Aug-2015 on Hotels
Hotel in our opinion not a 3 star or should not have a 4 star price tag. Bath room not clean,hairs in the plug hole. Very cold on arrival in room no heating on.very slow service. One lady running the dinning room, reception and room service. Would stop again if price is considerably reduced. Breakfast could have more to offer on buffet
