My husband & I booked a late rooms deal to the inn, as the weather was too cold for camping on the Easter weekend. We brought our bikes to make the most of the location, which is right on NCN cycle route 7. We arrived on Friday afternoon & had only booked in for 1 night. Our bikes were stored under the archway, which has a locked gate, so that was a positive! We were given room 5, which is apparently the most popular. The room was fine, apart from the small tv, which had a built in video player, and the lack of drawer space meant we left our clothes in our bags. There was a wardrobe, but as we were cycling all weekend, didn't really have many things that needed to be hung up. We cycled to Callander late Friday afternoon & got back for dinner at around 6.45 pm. They had kept us a table, which was nice, as the bar area was fully booked. There is a dining room too, but the bar has a nice atmosphere. I had fish & chips and my husband had the scampi. The fish was nice but the chips were frozen ones which were under cooked. Homemade ones would be much nicer here, but maybe that's just me as I'm not a frozen chip fan. We decided to ask if we could stay another night, as we were planning a long cycle the next day and didn't want to have to drive home after that. Our room was booked but they offered us the room over the bar, and did tell us it was noisy, but we agreed anyway. So we packed up our stuff in the morning for the maid to move, but as it turned out, we got to stay in our room as they had a cancellation. On the second night we had neighbours in the next room and the walls are so thin you can hear every word. Floors too, as we could hear conversations from the dining room below. I can't imagine what the room over the bar would be like.
Breakfast was ok, and a nice touch on Easter Sunday was a toasted hot cross bun.
The location of the Inn for us is great, and I may stay there again, however, wouldn't really recommend it to friends
