Do you love the great outdoors and thrive on exceeding guest expectations?

Then we want to work with you!

Walking distance from the well-known Highland town of Grantown-on-Spey, The Craiglynne Hotel is in a lovely location at the edge of the Cairngorms National Park. With views over the Cromdale Hills in one direction, heading the other way it’s just a short 14 miles to the busy Scottish resort of Aviemore. If you love getting out and about, you’ll find plenty to do.

The local area has much to offer, with a diverse mix of outdoor adventures including walking, shooting and bird watching. The winter months bring their own sports, such as skiing and snowboarding, in the nearby Cairngorms. Year round, local distilleries and the Speyside Way delight whisky enthusiasts.

Because of its location and the variety of activities, the hotel is very popular with groups and tours. After a day out and about they love coming back for traditional Scottish fayre and a dram in the lounge. You’ll be part of the friendly team ensuring all guests get the most out of their experience with us.

The hotel itself dates back to the Victorian era with an impressive stone façade, towers and bay windows looking out onto the grounds – as beautiful in summer as when the snow is falling. Despite all the grandeur, it’s a comfortable and homely place, with a welcoming lounge and roaring log fires for the inevitable, properly Scottish, chillier weather.

Live in accommodation is available for those looking to re-locate for this role – so can we tempt you to help us deliver the best in hospitality?

Three reasons to choose a career with Crerar Hotels

  1. Destination locations

Voted 2018’s most beautiful country in the world, Scotland provides a sought-after quality of life, ideal for outdoorsy types. Urbanites may find there are limitations, with reduced public transport, small local shops and occasionally – the ultimate modern hardship – patchy phone signal. But those who take that in their stride find that they discover true peace and quiet, wake up to incredible scenery and have Scotland’s natural larder to feast on daily.

  1. Talent development

We always aim to progress staff internally where possible, which means a number of our team have been with us long-term. They’ve chosen to make a life in one (or more!) of our locations, building themselves a varied career in the Scottish hospitality industry.

  1. Shaped by our values

Pride, authenticity, creativity, focus, respect and hard work. These principles guide our actions throughout the company, from management’s decision making through to the front line of customer service. They’re reflected in the Crerar Trust’s work supporting local charities and our Fair Fund, ensuring tips are shared equally with all staff.
