The Crown Hotel
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Callander
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Thank you very much for our wonderful stay during August. After visiting Callander for a wedding and staying at a different hotel down the road we decided to extend our stay in Scotland by one night and booked in at The Crown.

We booked 2 double rooms and both were lovely. From the huge (and very comfortable bed) to the thick curtains, very nicely done bathroom and the most beautiful tartan carpet (you must tell me where it's from!!!) we couldn't have asked for anything better, and all at such a reasonable and competitive price.

Bill is a very attentive host. Very welcoming and couldn't do enough for you. Whilst in the bar my 1 year old son began to cry and Bill brought over a teddy for him to keep my son and the other diners happy. A gesture which saved me the embarrassment of upsetting other diners and is very much appreciated.

The breakfast was very tasty (cooked by the hostess, sorry I didn't catch her name!) and rounded off the trip nicely.

Thanks again, you are doing a wonderful job, so much so that I felt compelled to write my first Tripadvisor review. Keep up the good work!

Recently stayed overnight at the Crown hotel. The hotel is a traditional Scottish high street hotel which has been extensively refurbished. The hotel is fresh, modern and very tastefully decorated and appointed to a very high standard. The room we had was immaculately clean and well presented, fittings and fixtures were all of a very high standard and the bed was brilliant. In particular the shower was large, very modern and high powered. We ate in the pub area downstairs, again service and quality of food was excellent, very generous portion sizes with a varied Scottish themed menu.

We would highly recommend the hotel to anyone thinking of staying in this area of Scotland, the quality of the refurbishment is top notch down to the luxurious towels and touch sensitive mirror in the bathroom.

Room Tip: All rooms have been fully returned recently.

Enjoyed a two night stay with my son. Lovely fresh, clean, modern accommodation. Comfortable beds. Very friendly and prompt service at Breakfast and also in Bar. We had met the Barman earlier in the day at the Tourist Info Centre where he was equally as friendly! Bar meals are traditional pub grub, good home cooking here, large portions. Little bit of noise heard in room from Bar in late evening was only very slight negative. Would definitely stay again and can recommend.

Stayed in Callander last year for a few days and enjoyed some fine food and drink in the Crown hotel (which then was just a public house and restaurant). This year i came back and stayed in the newly refurbished hotel and was delighted. From the moment i arrived i was treated like royalty,the staff were all most helpful and could'nt do enough, the room was superb the food was excellent and made our stay so enjoyable.Cant thank the management and all the staff enough. I was informed i was the first booking the hotel had taken and am delighted to have stayed in this hotel.many thanks to all concerned and will recommend this place to anyone and everyone. hope to return some time in the future and can think of no better place in this location.

After reading the excellent reviews of The Crown Hotel, we booked a four night stay as a base to explore The Trossachs. Were the staff and owners friendly and welcoming? They were! Was our room beautifully decorated and pristine? It was! Did we enjoythe food? We certainly did! Would you find better value for money in Callander? You wouldn't! Don't waste time wondering about whether or not to stay at The Crown. Just go!

Room Tip: Room 1 is rather small if you have a lot of luggage, as there is little storage. Room 5 is bright an...

The Crown is situated on the main street of Callander. We used it as a base for two nights for walking in the Trossachs/Loch Lomond National Park.

The negatives first.
Our double room was very small. We both had reasonable sized bags for a week in Scotland and there really wasn't enough space in the room for them.
A minor point but even though the door seemed new we had to pull it very hard to close it, resulting in a few loud door bangs!
There is also no on site parking available but we got on street parking across the street very easily both nights.

The room was very clean and the breakfast was excellent. We ate both nights in the pub downstairs and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. We were there midweek and the pub was quiet, which suited us.

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.
I am sorry that you found the room you were allocated small,
to be fair it was the smallest room of the six doubles we have.
Unfortunatley the room sizes are dictated to where the existing
window openings were when we redeveloped the building as the
planning department regulations would not allow us to move them
(the building goes back to 1740).
That is the main reason we are rated three star and not four.
I must apologise for the problem with the door, it was repaired the
day you left, gladly so as Ishbel and I live right above it!
There is plenty of on street car parking within five mins walk and a
huge council car park just around the corner where overnight parking is free.
If you are looking for accomodation in the area again please call us and we will
do our best to upgrade you to a superior double, which are much bigger than
the room you were in.

Best regards
