“First Class!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Hospitality & accommodation at Westerton is simply superb. Great attention to detail with guests not wanting for more. Both Lesley & Mike are so welcoming, helpful & knowledgable on places to visit, journey times on most of Scotland making life easier for guests planning daily tours. Callander is a good central base with good shopping & restaurants. Just returned from our 2nd visit & we cannot promote Westerton enough. A real treat & a genuine jewel in the crown. Always sad to leave so please Lesley & Mike keep up your good work! Ooooohhh & the Scottish strawberries & shortbread served on the patio overlooking the array of rhododendrons on a summer's afternoon simply delicious!! Thank You!

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. It was lovely to see you both again and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your 2nd stay at Westerton. Callander is a great central base for a touring holiday and we hope you enjoyed the Doune Hill Climb too. Thanks again for your kind words, your feedback is very much appreciated and we look forward to welcoming you back to Westerton in the future.
Very best wishes,
Mike & Lesley

We were fortunate to find this establishment at the last minute. We stayed for 3 nights and loved it, the house has been beautifully renovated by Mike & Lesley who are very charming and helpful hosts. We travel a lot and it is rare to find such a combination of quality accommodation, good food , genuine ambience and two people who clearly care and enjoy what they do. Highly recommend.

Couldn't have found a nicer place to stay in Callander! Mike and Lesley Stevens were the perfect hosts.

Lesley's smile lit up our welcome and made is feel right at home.

We enjoyed a quiet night on a comfortable bed in very nicely appointed accommodations. A generous and delicious breakfast sent us on our way the next morning.

My sister and I were traveling around finding our B & B's as we went but after a close call in Portree we decided to call ahead this last time. The Stevens ccouldn't have been more accomodating. The Westerton is beautifully decorated manor house with 3 rooms, we were put in the Gold room overlooking their lovely big garden. Lesley directed and made reservations to The Lade Inn for dinner and music sing-along for evening entertainment. Breakfast was delicious and offered a different menu option along with the traditional Scotish fare. We wished we could have stayed another night but decided Callander and the Westerton would make a great base for future Scotish meandering!

Room Tip: Any would do, we loved the Gold overlooking the garden

We stayed for two nights in the 'Gold Room' at Westerton on our homeward journey from the Outer Hebrides. We have stayed in Westerton before; once in the Gold Room and once in the Blue Room and both rooms are wonderful. Everything at Westerton is a joy from the superbly comfortable super-king beds, the glorious well-tended garden to the delicious breakfasts with a very wide choice. The breakfast/dining room looks out over the garden and is very relaxing. Lesley and Mike's attention to detail is amazing and their customer care is well beyond all expectations. You would be lucky to enjoy such excellent service at a 5 star hotel.

Callander is a lovely town and a great place as a base for visiting many of the local attractions and beauty spots. Wallace Monument, Sirling Castle, the Lake of Menteith or enjoying a sail on Loch Katrine are just a few of the wonderful outings within easy reach.

Thank you Lesley and Mike for making our stay at Westerton so memorable, comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable once again. It is a perfect stopping place for our holidays in the far north of Scotland and the Outer Hebrides. We look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. For a view of the lovely rear garden choose the Gold or the Blue room.

Mike and Lesley could not have been nicer, helping me plan what to do, providing me with homemade gluten free options, even going out and purchasing coconut macaroons and leaving them in my room. (The non gluten free food looked amazing too.) They made me feel totally at home in their beautiful residence. Classical music was playing softly in the breakfast area each day, and all the rooms were exquisitely decorated and immaculate. I stayed in the gold room, which overlooked their gorgeous garden that was in full bloom during my stay. The beds and bedding were comfortable and cozy, and the windows had wooden doors that shut out the light, so I was able to sleep in a little despite how early the sun rises in the summer in that part of the world. I was so content there that I did not want to leave and will definitely stay there the next time I return to Scotland. Stay at the Westerton if you want a first class experience with exceptionally kind hosts. You will not be disappointed!

This is the third time we have stayed at Westerton B&B in Callander. Twice in the last two weeks actually, a five night stay then a two night visit on the way back from Skye.

The Westerton is a lovely charming place, with beautiful surroundings and excellent hosts.

We stayed in the blue room, this is the largest of the three rooms, overlooking the most pretty colourful garden we have ever seen.

The room is light, spacious, has some wonderful furniture and an amazingly comfortable large bed.

The bathroom is also large, light and airy, again with brilliant views out to the back of the property.

A great room if staying for several nights or just to treat yourself.

The other two rooms are smaller but the standards are just the same, clean, comfortable and exacting attention to detail.

Which ever room you chose, I doubt you would be disappointed.

Breakfast is served in the large lounge area, on individual tables, with a vast choice of options. There’s fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals and fruit juice on the side and you are asked to choose from several other main breakfast foods on their printed menus the night before. These include various full breakfast cooked items, a vegetarian option, bagels and a couple of other choices.

There really is something for everyone and you definitely won’t leave hungry. The breakfasts set you up for the day and every single thing we ate was cooked/prepared and delivered to perfection.

The owners Mike and Lesley are so nice, really lovely people, they are also very helpful if you need any information on things to see and do in the area. They really want to make sure you enjoy your stay and have everything you need to ensure that happens.

We chose to stay at our two favourite B&B’s on this years holiday and Westerton was one of them. It really is a truly wonderful place.

Room Tip: Book direct and you will get the best room price available and also deal with the wonderful owners i...
