We visited the Dreadnought Hotel for the second time this year on Saturday 9th November. This time we stayed in a double room which was clean & comfortable. When we arrived I asked at reception for an extra blanket as it was very frosty outside & the manager delivered it to our room personally about 5 minutes later. We will... More

This hotel is in dire need of updating. The rooms very uncomfortable, cold, sticky old carpeting, spider in the bed, rusty bath, depressing hallways. The breakfast was ok on a plus side, and the bar area was nice, but that's the only thing that was nice in this hotel,,,,,, horrible will never return !!!!

My husband and myself visited this hotel a few years ok. Always had a great time. We were quite surprised when we arrived to see that the entertainment lounge is now a restaurant (macnabs) and there was no entertainment on even though outside it says live entertainment every weekend. Spoke to a gentleman and asked about entertainment but his reply... More

How do I begin? We arrived about two in the afternoon and decided to have lunch. There were no clean cleared tables so we sat at one with dirty plates and glasses. The batman walked past us FIVE times and completely ignored the mess. I cleared it myself putting everything on another dirty table. When we did get our lunch... More

Ok its not the Ritz, but at £30 for a room, and breakfast what can you say? It was clean, the staff friendly and attentive and breakfast in the Edwardian? restaurant a pleasure. I will be back on another budget trip for sure. Reading the reviews I'm not sure why some folk leave home!

I rather like it. It's quirky and I know not the "smartest hotel in town" but the staff are more polite than many a classy joint I've stayed in. Breakfasts are more than adequate and I've not had a sleepless night. If you want ritz Carlton, don't come here but if you want faded grandeur and quirky then you'll enjoy... More

Stayed 1 night. Staff great, dinner very acceptable, tasty & hot & a decent choice BUT room 220 beware. You have to share toilet experiences with your room mate, so make sure it's a very good mate.

I stayed at the hotel for one night during my business trip. My experience was good, the hotel is good value for money, I had a decent and clean room. The staff was very friendly and enjoyed the bar during the evening very much.

Arrived at the hotel quite late and found a free parking space outside the hotel. I was greeted by friendly staff. Checked into my room which was pleasant and decided to dine at their restaurant/bar situated at the front of the hotel. I found out the hotel has just been taken over and the new owners have been running it... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Originally built in the 17th Century by the Chieftain of the clan McNab as a hostelry for his fellow clasnmen travelling to the north, the Dreadnought has remained an important landmark as well as retaining a distinctive character of its own. From the wood panelled lounge bar to the architecturally listed stained glass windows, the Dreadnought has a very unique atmosphere. Centrally situated in the popular town of Callander, the 17th Century Dreadnought Hotel successfully combines the attractions of history with modern day comfort.
