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

I have recently been working in Callander and have been having a early doors beer at Crags Hotel. The beer is kept excellent and the staff are very polite and well trained. The glass's are spotless and the wine choices are good (so my wife tells me!). The locals in the main bar are very friendly and welcoming. All in... More

Our delightful host, Alex, and his helpful and friendly staff, ensured that our stay in this beautiful old pub B&B was most comfortable and enjoyable. The rooms were clean and a generous size, and the breakfasts delicious, We also enjoyed dinner in the restaurant of this charming little hotel.
