The notice that asked for a charge if you wanted your towels changed daily was a bit over the top.if you wanted a meal in the lounge after 6pm you had to choose from the same menu as the bus party. The hotel was grossly understaffed and if you wanted your room serviced you had to hand your key in... More

Booked this hotel for an overnight as we were visiting Callander for the day, the hotel is very old as is the décor, fittings and furniture, don't think a penny has been spent on it in the last 50years. The public areas are filthy and there was a horrible fusty smell all the way to our room. We paid extra... More

Had dinner in the dreadnaught before and it was great so booked a room this time and what a big mistake. Lovely looking building on the outside but far from it on the inside. Massive cobwebs, black marks showing through the cream paint, and dirty carpets. Clean bed and good breakfast but needs a lot..... Of TLC.

I cannot even begin to start at how disgsuting this hotel is. We are a young couple who went to stay over in Callander for the evening. We arrived at the hotel at 2pm, there was no-one at reception so we had to ring the bell, when someone arrived all we got was a "Yes?" should have known then that... More

the rooms are poor and they need a good full time handy man to fix them up. it wont take much at all to make this place a gem. the staff were all friendly and helpful , my only comment would be they need to look at the cleanliness of the uniforms. sleep quality was good the only saving grace...

Never in my life have I ever had a more uncomfortable experience. The hotel looked pleasant from the outside but believe me it was anything but pleasant on the inside, this was not a planned stay it was very very last minute so we did not expect much. What we did expect from this hotel we booked into (as we... More

This hotel may have seen better days, but it's slightly outdated features and 'British hotel' smell are strangely endearing. Room was a reasonable size and clean. Beds very comfortable . Shower was a bit of a hit and miss. Breakfast was ok, with usual choices of cereal and fruit and a fry up. Nice Bar area which did afternoon tea.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Originally built in the 17th Century by the Chieftain of the clan McNab as a hostelry for his fellow clasnmen travelling to the north, the Dreadnought has remained an important landmark as well as retaining a distinctive character of its own. From the wood panelled lounge bar to the architecturally listed stained glass windows, the Dreadnought has a very unique atmosphere. Centrally situated in the popular town of Callander, the 17th Century Dreadnought Hotel successfully combines the attractions of history with modern day comfort. Callander is the gateway to the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, making it an ideal destination for a Scottish break. ... more   less
