Hotel on Crinan Canal

Posted 23-Oct-2017
Arrival was easy to find and made welome, helped to room which was pleasant and comfortable. Dinner was reasonably priced and good food. No hot water in morning for washing was disappointing and breakfast was chaotic. This may have partly been due to the fact that there was a wedding the previous day.

Cairnbaan stay

Staff work hard to deliver a good service. The hotel appears to be run by a manager and a team of young people, some of them trainees. A pleasant atmosphere, nice people, fantastic location.

The location is good for me. And the room is very wide and the bathroom is perfect.

Characterful country house by Crinan Canal

Posted 25-Jul-2017
Pros: Beautiful location, great locally sourced food, some lovely period features in the main hotel building.
Cons: Dining room needs a makeover- carpet shabby and some of the seats ripped. Younger staff could benefit from more training in finer details of service.
Location: Approx 10 mins north of Lochgilphead. Walking, cycling, archaeology and history in Kilmartin Glen, sailing on Crinan Canal and Spund of Jura
A second stay at the Cairnbaan to visit family in the area. The location is ideal and we have always enjoyed the food. However, compared to our previous visit four years ago we felt the premises had become a bit shabby- which is a shame. Such a charming old house in this stunning location could really be fit from with a few new carpets, sofas and dining chairs to hit the 'boutique country house' mark.

This is a great please to spend a couple of days getting away from it all, smashing breakfast, loads of choice on the evening menu and the surrounding countryside offers lots of interesting walks/cycles for all abilities. Very friendly and obliging staff.
