Crags Hotel
Ranked #21 of 34 Callander B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 September 2009

The hotel's central location was perfect for us on the main road through Callander and parking was easily reached around the back. The public bar seemed to have a pretty busy local trade and we felt comfortable blending in. The nice family that run the place also made us feel extremely welcome and chatted amiably both in the bar and at breakfast. Great black pudding by the way.

The room had a very comfortable bed, a decent TV and was clean throughout. We'd have no problems using the Crags again should we ever be in the Trossachs.

We were on a cycle tour through Scotland and were welcomed to the hotel very nicely. This was a nice hotel with a typically Scottish local bar, though ran by English people.

The breakfast was good, though we were not asked the night before if we wanted the fish options, which we would have liked. Having said that the breakfast we did get was excellent.

The room itself was great and we did sleep well.

We had looked foward to our stay in the Crags Hotel after having booked many months in advance. We chose a room which was described as clean and cosy. It was neither! We wouldn't have minded the dated decor, as warned on the website, or a small room, but what we weren't warned about was the musty smell, the grime in the shower, and the stains on the carpets and bed covers. I would just like to comment that most of the other rooms have been updated, and it was a shame this room was not to the same standard.

If you're in the area, just stay at The Crags Hotel in Callander, it's so full of character. The owners were very welcoming and friendly - and owners baby did nothing but smile at us!
We had a slap up meal, nicely flavoured, on arrival and stayed in a lovely four-poster bedroom - very comfy. Breakfast was so good I had to find out where the wonderful black pudding came from and my husband had the local kippers. Interesting shops each side and the Crags pub is nice and friendly with good locals. Certain areas such as the car park could do with some modernisation but we gather this is in hand. All in all a lovely stay.

This hotel is a friendly, family run, unfussy place to stay for great value. Our room was newly furnished to an extremely comfortable standard. The owners of the hotel were generous with their time and nothing was too much trouble. The bar downstairs was lively and very friendly and seemed popular with the locals which we saw as a really good sign. They had a new chef when we were there who was absolutely excellent. We were really impressed with the food. We ate in the hotel several times and every meal was delicious and cooked to a high standard.
The local area is really stunning. The owners directed us to a local beauty spot for a picnic which we had to take a little boat service to get to. It made for a relaxing day out in a lovely location.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Crags Hotel. We felt it was the friendly owners and their young family who made it a happy stay. Thankyou

We received such a warm welcome from the proprietors of this hotel on our arrival and they both endeavoured to ensure our stay was enjoyable and comfortable.
The newly re-furbished room was cosy and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and the general atmosphere within the hotel was both relaxed and hospitable.
The newly appointed chef produced a delicious menu with absolutely gorgeous food which made eating out as a vegetarian a pleasure.
The bar was friendly and vibrant with locals choosing it was their preferred drinking establishment.
Under the same management, it would be a pleasure to return to this hotel.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a short break away together before he left to work abroad for the summer. The crags proved to be the perfect venue. Our room was comfortable, spacious and clean. The owners were very wecoming and answered any questions we had. The food the hotel provided was of a good standard there was a variety of options at breakfast and dinner was very enjoyable, especially the crumble! I would recommend the hotel to anyone wanting to visit callender and the beautiful scenery surrounding it.
