Have just stayed at Poppies for the 3rd year running and can highly recommend it. The rooms are spotless and the superior rooms have all the little touches you would expect from a more highly rated hotel. Can't understand why it only has a 3-star rating - should be higher. The bar area and restaurant are really lovely with great foods - excellent breakfast choice too. Will definitely be back.

We stayed two nights at Poppies because Callander is an excellent location for access to the Trossachs National Park, among other places in the heart of Scotland. We felt a bit put off by the staff on arrival, who could try to "fit us in" for dinner after 8:00 even though we had not asked to dine and who seemed a bit indifferent to us. Our room was ok, but the bathroom - smallest in memory - had a shower that did not work correctly. The breakfast was fine, and, although we did not have occasion to use the bar, the ambiance and whiskey selection were inviting. We might stay there again given the opportunity, but would probably request an upgraded room. The staff upon our departure were very pleasant.

We chose this hotel because of the reviews on TA.
This proved to be a great small hotel.
We had an excellent upgraded room with some classy touches the likes of which we weren’t expecting.
The restaurant and its food were first class as were the staff that worked there.
The bar had a selection of whiskey to die for!
We had an excellent stay and would recommend this hotel.

They gave us the room next to the reception and stairs and we were afraid we would have very troubled sleep because of people coming and going, but it was very quiet all night. Breakfast was very good with fresh fruit, very good scrambled eggs and bacon and even our favorite cereals (which you normally don't find anywhere). The shower was disappointing: no door but a way too long plastic sheet which blocked the drain.

Stayed at the Poppies hotel for 2 nights. Room was spacious (No.2) with its own sitting area. Clean tidy and very comfortable bed. Hotel has lovely dining area and breakfast was great with good selection.
Great location for visiting the surrounding areas and the Trossachs. Callander is a town I have visited many times and its has charm and character.
Hotel is ideal for passing through or for weekend break and the managers and staff were attentive and polilte.

Room Tip: We stayed on top floor (No.2) and room was very spacious with sitting area and two settees. Decent d...
