    Very good

    Hotel management appeared very comfortable with the fact that we had two large dogs with us.

    Fabulous

    The owners and staff are always very friendly and keen to please. Callander is a delightfull Scottish town and an ideal base for exploring the Trossachs and beyond.

    This is an observation and not a complaint but room 3 is very small.

    The booking in area/office could be slightly improved

    Central location with lovely country surroundings. Comfortable clean room with a tasty full english breakfast in a lovely dining room.

    Fabulous

    We arrived early but our room was ready so we settled in. The room was very large and beautifully decorated with quality furnishings. The staff were great and the food for the evening meal exceptional. Public rooms all of a very high standard.

    Our bedroom was such good quality the bathroom was a real shock. Old suite, mould above the tiles and ill-fitting lino and bath panel but was clean. The bathroom was quite large and there was only a towel rail to provide heat so before the bathroom was used we had to leave the bathroom door open to transfer the heat from the bedroom. Lots of hot water but poor pressure a shower pump may have helped.

    Fabulous

    The wonderful, imaginative and delicious food. We return again and again. The welcome. The cleanliness.

    Our third stay here in one of our favourite hotels disappointed us: the room had been spoiled by having the shower-room cut out of it. It was too small. The shower-room was terribly small and the door worse.I would advise friends to avoid this room.

    Pleasant staff, helpful when looking for local transport information etc. Nice breakfast.

    No bath in the room, only a shower. TV very small in the room, with only four channels.

    Very good

    Quiet location but close to town centre. Breakfast was very good in nice surroundings. Attractive front garden and bar/lounge area. All the staff were friendly and gave good service. Superior room large and attractive.

    Standard room for first night was diaappointing for price with very tiny en-suite "cupboard". Dinner quite expensive unless eating early- bird menu. Would only recommend if prepared to pay for superior room
