Loud Pub, turned into a "hotel". Are room was on the top floor and had no bathroom. We walked out and stayed in a lovely hotel just down the road. I wouldn't recommend it. The price wasn't exactly a bargain either!!!

I am outraged... absolutely outraged... by what I have just read! The instant... and I mean the instant... I read your review I launched a roots and shoots inquiry regarding the circs you have described! It appears something fishy has taken place and I want answers... as I am sure you do! I spoke to housekeeping and they swear blind... More

Don't be fooled by the name, it's a dead set classic pub. Great rooms, great feed, great company, and then a damn good breakfast to boot. Alex, the bossman, top bloke that can spin a yarn or two. Callander itself is a great town and the pub is on the main drag so easy walking distance for everything, well worth... More

Difficult to know where to start to heap praise on what from the outside looks such an unassuming hotel. From the moment you step over the threshold the warmest welcome awaits you from Vikki, co-owner with her husband, Alex. The warm welcome does not stop with the lovely owners. With Alex and Vikki's theatrical and film background it would not... More

Travelling with 3 kids under the age of 10, we were very happy to find accommodation where we could all stay together. We had 2 rooms with an interleading bathroom. Everything very clean and comfortable, somewhat dated, but full of character. We didn't notice any noise from the bar below.

We planned a holiday with a trip enjoying the entire Loch Lomond area. We scanned Tripadvisor and carefully chose The Crags as our stopping point; it was the best rated in the middle of the areas we wanted to visit. We were pleased with our choices; it was the busiest B&B/hotel in the area and quite full but rightly so-... More

Well, what to say about Crags hotel?! It is essentially an inn with some rooms and that is what it is good at. Yes, there was some noise from the bar below (particularly at close of bar), the room was ok (although pretty tired eg a small piece of card holding the wardrobe door closed, holes in bed cover) but...

The hotel is small and has some caricature, The owners are very keen and welcoming and nothing is too much for them to help you have a good stay. The building is old and shows signs of it's age but this adds to the quirky nature of the town. Food is good and portions are healthy, all produce is sourced... More

Fantastic place to stay, clean, comfortable and the food was excellent. The staff and locals were warm and friendly. Really good base to explore the area. We will definitely be back for more of that Scottish charm!

I booked the Crags hotel purely for it's location as it was close to the loch that the SS Sir Walter Scott sails. On arrival the bar was busy with friendly locals who were having a good blather and made us quite welcome. The staff all were pleasant and looked after us very well. We chose to eat in the... More
