“A fine restaurant”
Reviewed 14 June 2011

We ate twice in the restaurant of this hotel and found both the service and the food to be very good. The early bird menu is a particularly good value. You begin service in the very cozy bar and move to your table when the food is ready. The bar has a huge selection of single malts, arranged in alphabetical order. It is a challenging sight!

Reviewed 3 May 2011

I just came back after speding my Easter break in this establishment and I have (almost) nothing but praise for it. It is in fact exactly what I look for after long days spent hiking or walking: clean, cosy and, most of all, extremely friendly. I had dinner every day during my five days stay in the restaurant (plus one lunch) and the food was not simply excellent, but also very well presented. My only remark - and the reason why it took me tn minutes only to decide whether to award four or five stars - is that it is more expensive than other establishments in the area. In a local B&B you can in fact expect to spend significantly less than the Poppies, although for a lower quality service. For me, choice-deciding factor was the well-reviewed restaurant, but price is an issue, perhaps you might want to divert your attention elsewhere.

Reviewed 25 April 2011

After reading all the great reviews we decided to book up for 2 nights stay in April. On arrival our room wasn't ready so we waited in the lovely refurbished bar with a drink which was added onto the bill even though room wasn't ready. It would have been nice if they had offered us the drink for free to make up for having to wait while they prepared our room.

Had a lovely meal in the restaurant at night, really was excellent. Room was ok, not sure it was worth the money for a couple of reasons, strange sliding door on bathroom and an even stranger (and very loud) noise when our next door neighbour flushed their toilet or used their taps, nobody seemed to know about this noise but it woke us up a few times over the weekend.

All in all, a pleasant stay, breakfast was fine but not sure i would stay again with all the choice nearby.

We wanted some where to stay on the way to a family reunion in Crieff Hydro.Our choice of Poppies from this site could not be bettered.The room was first class and at a vg rate from later rooms.We both greatly enjoyed our excellent value early meal and the standard of cooking was faultless.The warmth of the welcome made this a place I would recommend to everyone.Callander was bathed in Spring sunlight and we watched a salmon fisherman casting in the river.

Reviewed 31 January 2011

We stayed here for 3 nights in January 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The superior room was large, nicely furnished and comfortable, with a sofa area and plenty of wardrobe space. The bathroom large too with a bath and separate shower cubicle.

The hotel owners were both very friendly and welcoming. The setting is just a little outside of Callander main street but a short walk to lots of good places to eat.

We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was very good, but we chose to eat out in Callander for the other two nights as the menu was a little limited, but what was on there was well executed. The bar area was very nice too.

We'd definitely recommend it and definitely return.

What the hotel lacks in decor and comfort - I found the beds in my room not that comfortable and the bathroom was a sliding door cupboard-like shower, sink and toilet - is made up for by the warm welcome of the owners. I was told by other guests that the food is very nice, and the breakfast was good (even if I'm not a fan of square sausage). The staff were pleasant and helpful, especially with trying to find out the vagaries of local public transport.
