Cosy pub bags of character. We went with our little dog and at first thought the room small and smelly of wee?? But later found out when we opened the window that the bush outside was the smelly culprit! View from window was a bush but that's not the hotels fault. The bed was high and extremely comfy!

We struggled to find some last minute accommodation for 3 nights, but this place had something and it was pricier than there normal rooms, but it meant a base for 3 nights. So we paid a bit more and got a 4 - Poster Bed. It's seen a lot of action and the mattress - I think that's what it... More

Slightly dated room (although extremely comfortable bed) but the fabulous evening meal, breakfast, friendly staff and reasonable price more than made up for this!! Was easily my favourite night of a nine day tour.

It's taken me almost a year to post a review of the Crags hotel in Callander, pure laziness on my part. Stayed for 2 nights with my wife and loved every minute of it. Check in is a bit strange as there is no reception and you go to the bar to get the key, was shown to our room... More

We have stayed at the Crags for I think eight nights over the past 5 years on various journeys to Scotland and have found it to be excellent value.Our last time was two weeks ago.It is in our experience a quiet hotel and we don't hear noise from other guests nor from the street. We have frequently been in room... More

Lesson learned....as someone said before. We were very disappointed with our room, so old fashioned, lumpy bed, window wouldn't lock, just felt we wouldn't sleep well so we did our money & went somewhere else, our fault really as we didn't do our homework well enough. It was only 60 pounds but we had stayed in much nicer places for... More

We had a voucher for this hotel,we could never get a booking for it despite several tries,we eventually got a booking for the 15th of July for a two night stay but had to forfeit the evening meal on the first night,which we felt was reasonable as the voucher had lapsed by this time but we needed to pay an...

Shortly after reading your review I was reminded of a quote… ‘I have of late—but wherefore I know not—lost all my mirth’. It was Hamlet who spoke these words. I don’t know why he wasn’t feeling mirthful… the Danish have always struck me as surprisingly chipper. Perhaps he had been forced to watch the entire first series of ‘The Killing’!... More

We stayed for a night whilst visiting some friends in town, the hotel staff were nice enough, the room was clean but rather small - this wasn't an issue for us as we didn't have much luggage though. We had a top floor ensuite and could still hear the noise from the pub downstairs, which could put some guests off... More
