We received a hospitable and warm welcome from the owner.....the room was comfortable...and the ambience mellow. We were now looking forward to an exeptional meal.....bummer....the food is average pub food IMHO....the venison wasn't to bad...but my ribeye steak was terrible.....I think it was cooked the day before and reheated.....thats what it looked and tasted like.
The breakfast was OK.....wouldn't bother.....if you like good food that is.

My wife and I booked this hotel at the last moment and were not disappointed room 9 spotless although the en-suite was a bit small but we coped .The restraunt was fabulous and was so relaxing although a bit pricey it was worth it and the bar prices were on a par with the rest of Callander so we could not complain.All in all a very enjoyable stay and the group who decided not to stay here lost out big time

Warm friendly welcome at this small hotel at the end of our holiday. Owner and her staff pay attention to detail and the room and food were excellent. There is a excellent choice of Scotch and my husband enjoyed tasting some of them. Breakfast was very good.

Turned up too early for booked room , were sent away with no courtesy , so we decided to go elsewhere , incidentally we did pay for the contracted room as expected.
We had a great night elsewhere.
I understand it is the end of the season, and this is popular hotel , but courtesy costs nothing!

Me and my friend were staying there for 4 nights - as we came for fishing (and some whiskey), then our requests were not high, and I didn't spend much time on looking for a place, just took one of the recommended by our guide - and it was a bull's eye!
Very small, perfectly located, super friendly staff!!! Probably rooms were bit too small according european standards (especially shower), but as I have been many times to UK, then I was aware that this is a very common thing.
Thank you very much for everything, we have enjoyed our stay there a lot.
Also, don't be affraid to have a nice dinner there!

We booked an early evening table for three and were greeted by the friendly proprietor who took our order whilst we waited in the lounge.
The dining room was very smart, spacious and well set up. Friendly, efficient staff and the food was enjoyed by all members of our party. My salmon was delicious, my wife's steak was done to perfection, tender and very tasty, our friend had chicken which again was excellent.
The sweets were to die for.
We took coffee in the lounge and although we were not resident in the hotel the proprietor made us feel very welcome. All in all a lovely experience which we shall be repeating on our next visit to Callander.
