Having been treated royally when we visited for lunch many years ago, we decided to stay over for a night on our way from Fife to Glasgow. All public rooms are comfortable as was our bedroom (although the shower stall was minuscule!) The staff are very professional - the manager even procured a cocktail shaker from a friend to make our martinis!
We chose the prix fixe dinner menu - probably a mistake - the soup was outstanding but the entree (steak) was not very exciting - there were lots more interesting main dishes on the menu.
Breakfast was delicious and the wait staff were all friendly and efficient.
Our room was not ready when we arrived, so it was suggested we have a cup of tea while we waited. We were charged seven pounds for two shortbread biscuits and tea! We were asked if we'd like a paper in the morning - we were charged for it too.
Considering the hotel charges top dollar (pounds?), these extra charges niggled a bit!

Absolutely lovely b&b. I travelled here with my sister on our Scotland road trip. The stairs creak, the rooms are beautiful, the beds are comfy, the bathroom products smell divine (Scotland Velvet Isle), the woods to the right are cool, the little meadow next to the bubbling stream to the left is peaceful, the staff are friendly, breakfast is plentiful, delicious and made to order, there is ample parking and the peacock out the front was the most sparkling cherry on top.

We arrived late at night without a booking and weren't going to stay as it was a little above our price range, but the receptionist was really lovely and offered us a discounted rate. My one and only gripe is that the bathroom windows were quite stiff and annoying to open.

Definitely recommend a night in this beautiful gem!

The top attic room where we were is lovely, but I had a peek at the others through the door when the cleaners were in there and they looked just as nice.

The Roman camp is such a charming place! As soon as you arrive on the tree lined streets and see the spectacular gardens you know you are in a special place.

The roman camp is older which adds to it's charm. Due to age, like everything it has small defects- a scratch or small crack here or there, a toilet that doesn't flush quite right and squeaky floors. That being said, those small things don't outweigh the charm of this place and actually add to the charm.


We were there for my sister in law's wedding. We stayed in the yellow parkour which was perfect. It had a little sitting area and we loved the decor. We got to see all of our families rooms and they were all great and unique. Some smaller, some larger. The wedding was great and the hotel really seemed to go out of their way to please the bride as well as all of the guests.


The hotel also has expansive gardens and a little river which are fun to walk after a meal.

Breakfast is good and has many choices. The hotel is walkable to many restaurants/ shops in Callandar.

Other then the beds (2 twins pushed together) being hard and lumpy, I would recommend this place to anyone!

We arrived right at the end of lunch service and the staff at this lovely venue fitted us in with a warm welcome. The in-laws wanted to treat us so table for 4 it was, and the service was top notch, attentive and the food was very good indeed. A set lunch with 5 courses - amuse bouche, starter, main, dessert, coffee and petit fours for £25 a head.
The hotel is beautiful inside - the dining room and all other rooms were traditionally yet luxuriously decorated. The gardens next to the river are very well kept and the peacocks wandering the grounds were the icing on the cake!
I've seen many comments about this place as a wedding venue and I echo the remarks - just lovely!
Overall, whatever time you want to dine in Callander, you won't beat this lovely hotel for style and value!

It's hard to choose hotel just because of what you see on the internet, and it gets especially difficult and risky when one must find a beautiful place to get married in. Thankfully it showed that we had made an excellent choise when asking Roman Camp to arrange our wee wedding in July 2014. From the very first contacts by email and phone between Shona (a most lovely and friendly lady who had organized it all) and us to wawing goodbye to her and this beautiful place - all of it was just perfect! The location is amazing - just a few steps from the high street, into another world, with beautiful surroundings next to a river. Lovely, comfortable rooms, wonderful atmosphere all over the place, excellent wedding meal (on the extra plus side tasty vegetarian menu which our ladies loved) - and impressive staff! Thank you for taking care of us during our stay, we will always remember how you made our big day to become the best day!
And last but not least, a big hug to the lady who made our rooms ready for the night: thank you for seeing the soft toy bunny rabbit and making his bed comfy - you really added the extra "glazing on the cake"! Maybe it doesn't mean anything for someone else, but for my family it showed that Roman Camp staff really cares even about the small details and it made us happy!

Recently spent the day and evening here for a family wedding, very beautiful and olde worlde inside. We stayed in 'South' room which was a superior room in the older part of the building and it was very comfortable, the creaking floor and wardrobes added to the charm, the bathroom was a good size and the shower was great! There are a couple of beautiful lounges downstairs to relax in, the bar has a beautiful fireplace and is very cosy and beautifully furnished, it also has a piano if you fancy playing (my nephew did a great job of entertaining the wedding guests!). The wedding meal was very good and the waiting staff did a fantastic job, especially the young man who was by my side every time my champagne glass needed refilling:):) which must have been often! Unfortunately it rained most of the day and so we didn't get the chance to see all of the hotel grounds which was a shame. If I had to 'moan' about anything it would be to say that this quality and cost of establishment 'turndown service' should be offered.
