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.

Bad booking

Posted 13-Aug-2016
We arrived after having our booking confirmed for a late arrival and found ourselves locked out as there were no staff available to let us in and had to sleep in the car. Don't know why the booking was confirmed if they weren't going to be there and to make it worse it was paid for.

Lovely place in gorgeous setting

Posted 10-Aug-2016 on Hotels
Lovely hotel in an idillic setting beside a canal. Checking in was swift at reception. I had a comfy single room of which was small but well decorated and suitable for my one night stay. Adjoining bathroom had a shower. The bar area, restaurant and seating area with a view to the canal was very comfortable with a great menu avialable. The food was lovely. My lasting impression was how hotel cleanliness and really nice staff. I enjoyed my stay so much that i am booked to return.

Posted 08-Aug-2016
Pros: Helpful and friendly staff....even went out of way to sort a meal for me after i missed closing time
Location: Lochgilphead is about 2 mile down road, if you need to do laundry you can wash and dry at the caravan park, Oban is 35 mile away ,ferries to islands
Stayed here as it was a last minute booking and nothing else available, it was within driving distance as to what i neededto do and wished to see , locals extremely friendly and helpful, after a big day of sightseeing and driving it is an alright place to sleep
