We spent one night here at the last minute ans we were essentially just looking for somewhere to sleep. It looks as if the hotel has been recently renovated. Our room was small, but warm, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The owner and staff were very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was freshly cooked, plentyful and tasty. Now the down side.. it has a lively bar with karioki and live acts at the weekends on until 1am, which can be clearly heard in the bedroom that we were in. It didnt bother us at all but if you are an 'early bedder' or easily disturbed, I suggest that you ask for a room on the top floor or go to a different hotel.. you hae been warned!!

Room Tip: Best to book direct with the hotel as they were offereing the same price as latebookings.com,for a s...

we have been regular visitors to callander now for over 10 years. we have only just started staying at the crown.we always stop in for the entertainment, but not to stay. we are so glad we did. the room may be on the small side,but the bed is massive,and very comfy.we are always made very welcome by ishbel and bill.the bar is well stocked and always livley,with very friendly locals. i am not overfond of big full cooked breakfasts,so asked ishbel if i could just have french toast...no problem at all. some hotels can give you "if its not on the menu,you cant have it" type of additude.so refreshing...all in all a great wee hotel,in a great wee town...charlie

This hotel was just what we were hoping to find. We did not have reservations but we were pleased to be able to get a room. The hotel was spotless and warm on a cold, windy day. The bed was oh so comfortable, even the pillows were comfortable and I am a hard to please pillow person.
We had a few beers/ales in the bar and chatted with Ronnie who was the nicest guy, very helpful and fun to be around, we feel we made a new friend. Breakfast was served in a real nice room with window boxes full of heather and other plants, over looking the main road. Ishbel made a delicious breakfast and Bill stopped by to say hello and chat for a minute. The two were great hosts, friendly and ready to offer any help you may need. So sad we only had one night to spend as we were passing through. If we ever get back to Scotland we will put Callander and The Crown Hotel on our itinerary and definitely stay longer.

B&B £60 for two people was excellent value. Room was small but spotless and very well presented. Our friends had a larger room for an extra tenner. Staff were very welcoming and the owner was keen to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We had a good meal in the bar - nothing fancy but all well cooked. We had been advised that there would possibly be some noise from the bar as there was entertainment on that night - we ended up staying put after our meal and enjoyed the music. Breakfast was served in a quiet room upstairs and was delicious. We will go back there again when we next go walking in the area .

This wee hotel sits on the main street in Callander. It is tidy and attractive from the outside and so you would expect the normal High street inn fair of being a wee bit drap and tired on the inside - SO WRONG!!

The only public room downstairs is the bar, which is pleasantly appointed. The meal menu has something for all tastes and food is good is great value.

But the big hidden plus is up stairs - bedrooms are all very nicely appointed and comfortable. They have obviously been refurbished fairly recently. I sleep in a lot of hotel beds and this was one of the most comfortable and best nights sleep I have had for ages.

Hostess Ishbel and her husband go out of their way to make you welcome. Can't say much more really other that - I'll be back!

Such an amazing weekend away. The crown hotel has a traditional feel from the outlook, but we were so pleased when we saw how up to date and modern the rooms were. The best of both worlds. Bill and Ishbelle were lovely hosts and couldnt do enough to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Great value for money, real quality in the surroundings and the food! Breakfast was gorgeous. The live entertainment just added to the homely feel and personality.
Thank you for an amazing time. We will definately be back! - Amy and Paul Ritchie
