Me & my boyfriend, my parents, & my brother stayed at The Knowe for 4 nights over the Bank Holiday weekend whilst in town for a wedding, and we had a lovely time!
The B&B is quite small, but very well presented with lovely modern rooms, 3 doubles and 1 twin. We took 3 out of 4 rooms up, but I didn't get a good look at the twin room. The rooms are a very good size, all with new carpets, wardrobe, dressing table, sofa, ensuite bathroom, fridge, tea & coffee stuff, & wall-mounted tv with full Sky package. And wi-fi in the rooms too, although they only guarantee it in the resident's lounge downstairs, as bad weather can affect it!
The B&B is just 5mins walk down to the main street which has all the usual town amenities you could need, nice restaurants & pubs etc. The walk back is up a small hill, so not ideal for those with walking difficulties, but is on a nice quiet street, we never heard a peep out of the neighbours (although apparantly a local screech owl has been heard by some guests!).
The hosts are absolutely lovely: friendly, accomodating, & unintrusive. They serve up an excellent breakfast (I can highly recommend the full scottish with haggis!), with plenty of choice, between 8.30 & 9am, though they pushed it back an hour for us the day after the wedding as we were the only guests! They were very helpful wih recommending local attractions, and there is a good selection of leaflets & menu's in the residents lounge to help with decision making. Oh, and they have a very sweet german shepherd dog! : )
Callander is a real wedding hotspot, and I really can't recommend the Knowe highly enough for a stop-over or for a longer break. We've had a lovely time, and I'd like to think we'll be back!
