“Fantastic hosts”
Reviewed 12 August 2007

We stayed four nights at the Glengarry, along with two other couples, in August of 2007. First, I'd like to make a couple of corrections to previous reviews. I'm not sure what lake the one previous reviewer was speaking about as the Glengarry in Callander is no where near a lake. The pub, mentioned by another previous reviewer, has been closed for 2007.

The Glengarry is a small, intimate guest house run by the gregarious and charming Ann, who lives on premise. Rooms are about what we expected, though a little on the small side, primarily because ensuite facilities were added into the rooms, leaving both the bed rooms and the toilets small. Rooms near the front of the house face the street, which is a relatively busy highway, and can be noisy at night. Breakfast is plentiful and well prepared, but the same foods are served every day, so don't expect unique or exciting breakfasts, just wholesome, tasty ones. Ann is quite helpful and accommodating. Service to the rooms was excellent and completely unintrusive. Value for cost was exceptionally good, the best we encountered on our trip.

The Glengarry is convenient to Callander's pubs, restaurants, and shops, but expect to walk about a mile to get to them. Good walks are located in the woods above town, and Callander is an excellent central location for exploring the nearby national park and historic sites.

You feel like your pulling into a Merchant-Ivory film when approaching the hotel which is in a stately home on it's own grounds by the lake. The hotel was almost full when I booked and we got a standard room overlooking the carpark - we were very pleasantly surprised to enter a beautiful room, with large, majestic bed, antique style furniture, lovely big bathroom and all amenities including TV with cable, fast internet, coffee/tea, etc and an old fashioned "wireless".

We only one night but it was one of the most memorable hotels we stayed in. A pre-dinner walk around the grounds followed by gin and tonic on the lawn. Dinner was served in an old-fashioned dining room very properly. The dinner was good but could have been better, the tastes and flavours stronger and more inspiration put into the menu. After dinner dessert & coffee was served in the library (dessert was great!) and we took another small stroll (to smoke a cigar) and had port outside while watching he late (10pm) sun set.

Excellent.

we had a one night stay here and found it to be very pleasant. the owners are friendly and the breakfast was good and ample.
the small lounge was good for a crack with locals which we enjoyed. it is a five minute walk to centre of town which means a very peaceful nights sleep. a good value for money. the bedroom we had was lovely with en-suite.

The room was nice though we experienced a few problems e.g I don't eat a cooked breakfast and was offered a bowl of cereal. Choice of cereal limited, amount was minute and unfortunately it came in a bowl which I discovered was covered, in the inside, with egg. A cleaner also entered our room with no warning which was a bit embarrassing and hankies apeared inside the very clean looking bed, this was strange as neither my partner or myself had used hankies in the room.
