We were at a party in the village and yes this was close. But it is certainly not what the website suggests. Most of the rooms are in the annexe at the back. Very clean, but it seems like they have followed a b&b manual .... Plastic cups wrapped in plastic, soap (who uses soap these days?!) It is clinical, it has pine furniture and has kitchen cupboards in the room, for what reason I couldn't work out. A small table for the tea/coffe tray/ kettle would suffice and make for a more spacious room!

Yes it wasn't expensive, yes it was close to town, yes it was clean, yes breakfast was on time, yes breakfast tasted ok, however, not what I expected from local produce. Clean bedding, nasty thin pillows, average bed, quiet, but lacking in any character. If there had been a Premier Inn I would have chosen that every time.

And the towels, well, they could remove the top layer of skin.

Good value? No, not for me, but maybe my expectations were a little higher, and why was that, because that is what their website led me to believe.

What a disappointment - doesn't live up to the locally hosted website hype. We stayed at a quiet time of year and several rooms were left open. Three bathrooms have mouldy ceilings and the general decoration is very poor. Staff very supportive and helpful. Doesn't represent value for money; doesn't present the quailty it pretends to. Great location. A great opportun ity awaits the owner.

I thought this place was great. Was a bit worried as I saw the previous reviews but had to book it because it was one of the few places available...

I found the staff friendly, chatty and accommodating. I thought the room was big, and it wasn't basic at all. It even had a little dressing table and mirror. The bathroom was huge and super clean, good shower. The food was tasty, and the location was perfect.

I don't think I could have asked for anything more. I think maybe the poor reviews are down to people expecting luxury - which this place isn't. But it doesn't advertise itself as being luxury and it's one of the cheapest places to stay in Aberfoyle. You can't really expect to pay for a cheap room and get something fancy!

We stayed one night in July only because it was the only B&B in town with rooms available. That should have been an appropriate warning. Cheap linens, barely adequate cleanliness, Wifi with a range of about 5 feet from the router. This is not a 60 pounds per night romantic B&B by any stretch. They seemed not particularly interested when we arrived, and not particularly sad to see us go when we left. You can do better. At least that dog stopped barking by the time we went to sleep. The shower, though, was nice and hot .

The room was reasonably clean, though basic. Food excellent, host friendly and welcoming. Lovely area for cycling, walking or site seeing. Forest drives near by also sailing on lochs.
