Totally agree with the previous reviewers. Everything was perfect. Hosts, room and breakfast. All was clean and the bed was excellent. Highly recommended. We stayed only one night, but will go there again if ever in that part of Scotland.

We stayed two nights in Garvally House last week and it was delightful. Everything was perfect, the hosts, the room, the breakfast were all exceptional. I highly recommend this B&B if you are looking for a place to stay in the Stirling area.

We came to Scotland to visit family and stayed at Garvally House for 2 weeks. Wonderful historic house and Naomi and Michael have turned hospitality into an art form. Home made yogurt, bread, jam, granola, honey, 5 star Scottish cooked breakfast greeted us each morning. Home made cake and a whiskey night cap ended our day and we tumbled into...

Lovely old stone house, beautifully and traditionally furnished, large, comfortable rooms and bathrooms, delicious locally-sourced breakfasts including local haggis, smoked salmon and yoghurt, friendly and attentive hosts and a pleasant location next to one of Alloa's main parks. I really couldn't fault it, absolutely delightful.

Seriously, this is the best Guest House I have ever stayed at anywhere. I stayed for two nights while biking in the area (right on the Sustrans National Cycle Network route 76 in Alloa). My hosts were truly hospitable and obviously showed care and pride in their property. It was apparent in the attention to detail and the myriad number...

A lovely house with excellent accommodation. Super-comfortable and a really excellent and relaxed breakfast. Could not ask for more. Just a shame that our stay was so short as we were attending a wedding nearby.

My wife and I stayed at Garvally as we couldn't get a room at the hotel where a wedding we were attending was being held, we couldn't have been happier in the end!
