The Cairnbaan is located in one of the most idyllic areas of the west coast with little competition in the area. Food in the restaurant is very good, particularly the sea food and served by friendly, smiling staff. The accommodation side of the hotel in our experience reflects a different standard however. Although some effort has been made to provide...

There were 3 in our party and the third person was charged £95 DBB for a single room,no reduction forthcoming. Both rooms were quite small and badly lit,the double's bathroom shaverlight over the mirror did not work although reported at once was not...

Spent a night in the hotel, receptionist was well mannered and very helpful, to the point of taking us to our room. The room was spacious and well maintained. We were told that we could turn heating on but the ambient temperature in the room was great both when we arrived and first thing the next morning. Bathroom was the...

We spent two nights at the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a spacious, clean, comfortable room on the first floor overlooking the canal and the management and staff could not have been more helpful. Particular thanks go to the young girl on reception who took time to provide excellent information and maps on local attractions to make...

Stopped for lunch and (a fairly long, enjoyable) coffee. Food was excellent in the lounge on big soft comfy settees, watching the canal activities across the road. ...could have sat there all day. Staff are superb and very kind. Will never drive past this spot again now I know about the Cairnbaan.

This is half the price of the Hotel at the other end of the canal and quite as nice. A lot of the rooms are very nice and overlook the canal as does the restaurant albeit a bit lower down so it is quite easy to loose time just enjoying the activity. I ate dinner which was very good and...

Whilst travelling on the Crinan canal we stopped here for a meal. We had been before and had reasonable food. However this occasion was disappointing. The bar is always comfortable and interesting to sit in and we arrived early sitting at a table at the back. It was set for 6 and we were only 2 but thought nothing of...

Spent the night here, two single rooms that were both very spacious with large bathrooms. Each room had its own individual style and was good value, considering the single occupancy. No broom cupboard under the stairs here! The whole hotel is well used and its furnishings and finish reflect this but in a homely, country setting way, so for me...

Stayed here on Saturday night for one night only, wish it was more. The hotel benefits from a great location with miles of canal walks all the way to Crinan. The hotel staff are all very friendly and provide great speedy service. As it was a beautiful day we sat outside on the terrace and had lunch which was delicious....

This really is one of our favourite hotels. We have stayed there a number of times and it resembles a very comfortable armchair. It may not be ultra modern, but the rooms are clean and more than adequate. The welcome is always friendly whether old or new clients, the food has never disappointed, and the breakfasts exceptional. Just ended another...
