This is a great hotel, located within walking distance of Callander, a charming town. Based on other hotels in the town, it seems good value and good quality. Thus the 5 out of 5.
Rooms - we had a family room, room 2, at the top of the house. A double bed, plus 2 large sofa beds for the kids. Plenty of space in the room. Furniture was nice, plus comfy chairs. The double bed was good to sleep on. Plenty of lights and decorated nicely.
Hotel - reception, common areas and bar all nicely decorated. Restaurant looked nice, but we didn't eat as we have small children. If you want "new style" this isn't it, it's more older style. The stairs creak and some doors do, but that's the charm of hotels like this. Go stay in Stirling or Glasgow if you need that, plus pay for it. Also great grounds and plenty of parking.
Location - Easy to walk to town and the tesco express. Plenty of restaurants nearby or they have one. Lots of attractions close by.
Breakfast - excellent choice and quality. Very nice, fresh ingredients you can tell. Lovely jam, fresh fruit, juices and cooked breakfast.
Owners - great and very helpful. John gave us lots of tips and does a mean cooked breakfast!
Overall a lovely hotel, friendly, small and recommended.
Small notes for future users: wifi doesn't always work at the top of the house, bit it's free and thus use the bar area... Guests bring shower gel/shampoo. For us, the hotel food looked lovely, but a tiny bit costly for children. The surroundings may warrant it, but our two hardly eat! We ate in the town and at The Old Rectory, 75 metres away, you don't get the surroundings, but the food was good. That's just a matter of preference and how much your children eat!
