Spent 3 nights here with my husband and a group of friends. We arrived by train into Dunblane late on the Friday evening - it's a nice 10 minute walk through town (or along the main road) to reach the hotel, plus a long steep climb up the hotel's driveway. The hotel was very busy the whole weekend, even on... More

We were having dinner in their Kailyard restaurant and thought it would be nice to stay over rather than drive home, we were wrong. The hotel is in desperate need of updating as the décor is very tired and dated. The entrance to the hotel is down a dinge, badly lit, narrow corridor which sloped dangerously. You then go up...

The hotel was clean, the staff efficient and in particular the restaurant staff were superb. Food was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We had a private room booked and every attention to detail was paid with every bit of the evening going perfectly. Well worth it for the family celebration. Only down side was that the put up...

Loved my stay at this hotel. The drive up to it is magnificent. The staff were lovely - the girl who checked us in and out was one of the coolest hotel staff members I've ever encountered. The room was gorgeous - really big, spacious and airy. The location is close to Stirling and a short drive to Edinburgh, nicely... More

Spent 7 nights there with our two young children recently, and due to my work commitments, our family spent much time in the hotel. Great base geographically for exploring Scotland. Good points: without exception the reception staff were great, really helpful and pleasant; upgraded to suite much appreciated; bar staff also friendly and efficient Medium: food was a bit unimaginative,...

Picked the Doubletree in Dunblane as our base for day-tripping in the Scottish Highlands. It turned out to be a good choice. Dunblane is small, but nice. We walked from the hotel into the town to dine while we were there. It is only about five miles to Stirling (Stirling Cadtle, Banockburn, Wallace Monument, and more. About 35 miles to... More

Stayed in this grand old hotel for two nights, hoping to get the experience of staying in a famous 'hydro' hotel and the history that goes with them. Hotel still has a lot of the original features, especially in the public areas and lived-up to expectations in elegance. The room we had was well equipped but small. Once an en-suite... More
