Exceptional 10.0
Such a brilliant stay. Highly recommend!
I honestly have to commend Cruachan Guest House. They couldn’t have done anything better, and as far as BnB’s go, this was by far one of the best stays I’ve had. The rooms were very spacious, high ceilings and a mini fridge too. We had a triple room with 1 single and 1 double on the ground floor at the front of the building. The windows were very well insulated and you barely hear anything from the road. The breakfast each day was brilliant with such a variety. You had all the usual continental items and cereals, pancakes with lots of toppings and the full English was just delicious. The service was also on point and they couldn’t have been any more helpful. Would highly recommend. It was also well situated and only took about 10/15 minutes to get to princess street, The castle and nightlife/restaurants
Thomas, gb2 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
It was nice to have a bathroom but it was a big problem that toilette did not flush poperly. I had to push down the lever more than ten times every time. This was a huge disappointment, though I liked everything else. Especially, I was very happy with the breakfast which was freshly home cooked.
