Visited here for lunch whilst holidaying in the area. Decor is nice, seems quite new inside but lacked a bit of comfort and cosyness when throwing down with rain outside. The lunch we ordered was nice and the price reasonable, so definitely recommend here based on that. Felt a little uncomfortable in there at times, quite a few locals were... More

Dear Joanna, Firstly, thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, we are delighted you enjoyed your meal and considered it good value. I am somewhat bemused by the fact 'the locals' made you feel unwelcome. The fact that you refer to a group of Chinese people makes our recollection of the day more clear as this is... More

While staying at Forest Holiday Cabins in Strathyre the Crown Hotel was recommended to us and we are so glad it was. We stopped here for a bar lunch, there was five of us in our party and each of us declared our meal to be excellent. The owners are very friendly and make you feel very welcome indeed. We... More

This is a Pub based eatery. From the outside does not seem to a quality eaterie. The inside is clean and tidy and very functional. The food is however top notch. Well presented, good portions. Cooked to order. Staff and owner manager very pleasant.

To be honest, I am not a great fan of hotel bars as they tend to lack a proper pub atmosphere, and the bar in the Crown Hotel seems to be no exception, certainly when we visited. I thought that the light coloured hotel style furnishings maintain a hotel ambience as opposed to a cosy pub and the table set... More

A group of us enjoyed a lunch at the Crown Hotel last week and were really impressed by firstly the standard of the food and secondly by the great surroundings. Food cooked fresh to order with a well balanced menu and pleasant, courteous service, offering great value for money. Highly recommended.

We stopped for lunch here on our way to Inverness and loved Callander so much we decided to come back for a few days. Of course we had to come here for Dinner as the lunch we had was so good. We weren't disappointed although we had a shock when we walked through the door as it had had a... More
