“Fairytale winter wedding - Thank you! 5*”
"We recently got married at the Craiglands Hotel a few days before Christmas. We just wanted to leave a 5 star review as we were so incredibly looked after from start to finish. Harriet Harding was at the helm and we are so very grateful for everything she did, it all went super smoothly thanks to her. Special thanks also need to be made to Maj and Rob for everything they did on the day for us. All three of these staff members are a credit to the Craiglands. We had a hot and cold fork buffet served at the reception and everyone commented on how generous the portions were and how beautiful the food was so a huge thank you also to the chef and kitchen staff! A final big thank you to everyone at the Craiglands, you made our day incredible! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel as a wedding venue! Well done team Craiglands!"

“Christmas dinner ”
"We visited the Craiglands twice in December, once for a children's Christmas party - excellent entertainment.
"Then on Christmas Day. There was good food but more important for us was the relaxed atmosphere. Although a high chair was available our 20 month granddaughter sat on a chair and clearly enjoyed being all grown up. There was no pressure to rush as we had the table for as long as we wanted. Afterwards we went for drinks in the lounge where people were talking, playing board games and watching children's programs on a big screen TV We opened some presents and set out a railway track ... there was so much space... more than at home. We will certainly come back."

“What a view!”
"The hotel is imposing on the outside and lovely on the inside. All the interior is very well presented , attractive and comfortable. The booking was well done and the reception was excellent. We felt very welcome for our brief one night stay. The view from our spacious room was on open view of the fell , fronted by the hotel garden.
Breakfast was held in a welcoming small area . It was very good.
"The staff in the hotel are delightful. The only blip was the fact that they had not cleared the drive of ice and it was slippy right to the gate. OK for cars but not for walkers."
