Clean rooms. Friendly staff. The toilet paper holder and sink shelf need the attachment screws fixed. Dinner and breakfast were great. Take some time to check out nearby Doune castle of Outlander and Monty Python fame. Of the hotels and inns we stayed at, these beds were the least comfortable. Frustrating since we got into this inn early enough to...

Up a short steep flight of stairs was a surprisingly roomy twin room, very clean and also with a large bathroom. The beds were extremely comfortable. We had a good dinner in the small restaurant as well as breakfast. Doune is a lovely small village.

Great value for money; excellent food; accommodation clean and comfortable; top quality staff. This is an old inn with a new heart and a genuine community feel. My stay involved exceptional circumstances and the staff went above and beyond. I can't thank them enough.
