We stayed at the Inn for a night on our way home to Oban after a terrible holiday at the Scarisbrick Hotel in Southport (see seperate review). It was abreath of fresh air! The Inn is the focal point of the village and is about 200 years old. There is a well laid out carpark and seperate entrance to the accomodation. We entered the bar to book in and were immediately greeted by the barmaid with a friendly welcome. We were shown to our room which was spacious, clean and attractively furnished. We read through the dinner menu in our room, then went down to the bar for a drink and to order our meals. As we had our dog with us and couldn't therefore use the dining room, the staff had set us a table in the bar. The food was excellent as was the liquid refreshment, After a great night's sleep and a refreshing shower in the immaculate ensuite bathroom, we enjoyed a perfectly cooked breakfast and chat with the gentleman who served us. All in all our stay at the Red Lion Inn in Doune more than made up for the stress and disappointment we had experienced in Southport. I wish we had stayed at the Inn all week!

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms 3 and 4 (above the bar) but still quiet enough.

Our family (5 people) only spent one night there but the service was perfect.
Really friendly people. The pub was full but we couldn't hear any noise from there.
The breakfast was delicious.
We spent 7 nights in Scotland in 6 different places, but this was my favourite.

I have only ever visited to eat. We have had some very good meals here. The service is friendly. The portions are a very good size. The last meal I had there was a business meal with 4 other people. Two of us had salmon with roast veg. The salmon was very dry and the roast veg were more like mixed boiled veg. It was tasty but the salmon had been grossly over cooked. I didn't say anything as I was a guest at the table with people I didn't know, but had I been with my family and paying for it myself I would have complained. I found out afterwards that the owner who usually cooks hadn't been in the kitchen that night.

So, before you order you may want to check who's cooking! Owner is good, apparently his stand in is not so good!

This Inn seemed a little old fashioned but had some nice touches. We had a hard time getting the WiFi in our room. The man who served us breakfast was very genuine and nice. Even though the pub is right downstairs and was full of people watching soccer, we had no noise problems in our room. He told us our room dated to the 1700s! Free parking right next to the Inn. It also was within walking distance to Doune Castle.

We stayed for two nights. At in one night, at a wedding the next. Food was very tasty especially the steak and ale pie with chive mash. Meat just melted in the mouth. Breakfast was freshly cooked and delicious. Bar was packed on the Friday night, but service was still excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. And, the prices are very, very reasonable.
