We did not stay in the hotel as we were on self catering in Balfron but we ate here twice. The young charming lad who runs the restaurant (I believe his name is Scot) was very helpful and friendly so we went back. The food was very good both lunch time and dinner. Killearn is a lovely wee village close... More

We got a great deal for bed and breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable and the evening meal and the breakfast we had were very good. The staff were very good and the village is very nice and quiet. Will return.

Staff very welcoming. Recently taken over, so still some things needing sorted. Great atmosphere, room nice and cosy. Staff work hard and very helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Decor needs a freshen up in the rooms/hallway. But I believe they will get there. Great value for money.
