We have SEVEN UNITS, BUT only FOUR are available for on-line booking so if they are showing as fully booked for the dates you require, please contact us via email to enquire about availability in other rooms.
There are different sized units including 3 studio flatlets and 2 one-bedroomed garden cottages. Craighall Park has large (2000 sq m. properties) which means that the accommodation is not crowded and allows for privacy and peace. Guests often comment on how secluded the guest house is - a suburban oasis filled with the sounds of garden birds yet so convenient for business and leisure hubs. Breakfasts are served on the patio which opens out onto the garden in summer and is warmed by a roaring log fire in winter. Breakfasts (full or continental) can also be served in the seclusion of your courtyard should you wish.
You can relax by the pool in the garden. We offer secure undercover parking; same day laundry service; on-site transport; dinner on request. Children are welcome and we can arrange baby-sitting on request. We accept pets by prior arrangement. We accept all credit cards.
