Reviewed 23 September 2012

We stopped for food only ........This hotel is sitting in such a good position on the A84 ,and there are new food sign which have gone up so it should have be full but its wasn't, it is a little on the tired side inside but we were welcome and with only four other people there we could sit anywhere, we both had the Sunday roast good size plate with three slices of beef the roast potatoes' I'm sure were deep fried? they were ok but not to my liking, you know it was so quite in the bar and theres a complete lack of any atmosphere the only sound was the sound of knifes and forks ..... bit spooky that , the hotel bar area needs somethink........something to make it a place you would want to come back to, we didn't hear any music from our table but when leaving we did hear some faint music coming from a speaker in the corner.

Rooms booked for two couples, we got the four poster bed which was teriffic. Hotel could do with a slight refurb, but the staff all make up for this. I would certainly recommend this hotel due to the location and the friendliness of the staff. Beds clean and comfortable.

I stayed here for one night in the family room with my mum and 5 year old grandson, the owner Susanne is lovely and very helpful as are all her staff. Rooms are spacious with ensuite and tea and coffee. Mum couldnt come down for breakfast and they gladly made up a tray of breakfast for me to take up to her. Nothing was a problem for the lovely friendly staff.

We were looking for somewhere to spend our last night in Scotland after a two week tour. After driving too far and ending up in Alloa (no disrespect, people) we drove back through Dunblane and ended up in Doune. What a delight. The Woodside might be chipped and frayed around the edges but we had a lovely big room with a four poster, large windows, a large mirror next to a plug socket (readers of my reviews will know how crucial this is - posh expensive hotels please sort yourselves out) and a good bathroom. The huge bed was exceptionally comfortable, dinner in the bar good and great value (plus proper homemade puddings and real ale) and the full breakfast huge, but what makes the Woodside exeptional is its staff. They are all wonderful - warm, fun, friendly, kind, attentive and helpful. We felt like we'd dropped in to visit a much loved auntie and uncle and the nieces and nephews had turned up to join in. They gave us the room at a standard room rate of £75 prpn including breakfast. I can live without grade A carpets, swags and tails, halogens and wet rooms but I need the human touch and to feel welcome. If you want a hotel at the "gateway to the Trossachs" this is the one. Loved it. Oh, and Doune Castle is where Monty Python and the Holy Grail was filmed. Go and see it.
