“The Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

The welcome at Garvally House was warm and friendly, and the hospitality continued at the highest standard for the entire stay. No details are overlooked in this 5 star accommodation: comfortable bed, heated floor in the bathroom, and delicious breakfast. Best B and B in Scotland.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Blue Room which was perfect for the solo traveller. There is a good size desk in the...

This B&B is great! I stayed with my husband in May We used it as a base to get around while we were back in the U.K. Visiting. The rooms are gorgeous very comfy with a huge bed that was so comfy the bathroom was very chic!
We have friends and family in and around the Stirling and Alloa area so it was a perfect location for us. The town also has train line which runs to both Stirling, Glasgow and Edinburgh which is about 5-10 mins walk away. The hostess was great always ready with train info and recommendations for places to have lunch if we were heading into Edinburgh.
Really good breaky I am a veggie and I was so excited to see that she has her own hens which produce the fresh eggs I had for breakfast with freshly made bread! Yum! My husband is not a veggie and he was blown away by the choices available for him.
All in all it was a really nice stay.

A five-star experience all round. One of the most delicious breakfasts I've ever had in a B&B and a beautiful, modern room and en-suite with all the facilities I could ask for. Will definitely be back soon.

The welcome starts as soon as the door opens, and every single bit of it is as good as you expect, if not better. Two rooms decorated and furnished to a luxurious standard - I saw them both - with very well equipped ensuites. And if they are great, wait for the food! Fantastic every time.

Room Tip: Either is excellent
