“Good pub with rooms.”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

The Waverley Hotel is bang in the middle of Callander, so location is excellent. It's a decent pub with a busy bar, good pub grub and the breakfast was good too. We had a very large quiet room with a huge bathroom. Definitely recommend this one.

We are a couple of Twilight travelers who visit Scotland at least twice a year.For the past twoyears we have stayed at the Waverley Hotel in Main street Callander for two nights on both occassions and had a wonderfyl time.The Hotel is a lovely friendly Hotel with both courteous and friendly staff with a very professional approach to Customer Service.The Food at the Hotel is excellent both breakfast and Dinner are beautifully prepared and presented.
The Owner's of the Hotel are most accomodating.Nothing is a problem and they are always available to assist even with the most mundane requests.
We enjoyed our stay there so much that on our return home to Dublin last year we quickly re-booked for the same time this year and are looking forward to our stay at the Waverley in early september.
The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the Entertainment in the evening in the Bar was top class.I do believe they were a Brothers duo names the Minogue Brothers.We hope to see them again on our next visit.
We would highly recommend a stay at the Waverley Hotel for anyone heading north to the Highlands.Callander is a lovely town with lots of lovely shops to browse in.One shop which particularly caught my eye was the local hardware which had the quirky name of " Screw it " .It had everything you could ever want in the hardware line and more besides.There are also a number of candy stores that sell sweets just like they did in the old days in jar's with lots of unusual flavours to titilate the pallet.
We cant wait to vist Callander again.Hopefully the Sun God's will shine on us but even if they dont, we know that the Hospitality afforded in Scotland will more than make up for it.
From Anne and Ben Twilight Travelers from Dublin.August

Room Tip: We liked the room to the front of the Hotel as you could sit in the window and watch the world go by...

Spent weekend in callander, on arrival went for walk through town and to look for a good place for lunch.Plenty of choice but we opted for the Waverley hotel on the main street.Had fantastic lunch & a glass of wine, served up by a very friendly, efficient & hard working young staff[something all too rare on the ground these days].Impressed us so much we decided to make make the Waverley the venue for dinner & our evenings entertainment. Not disappointed,great food and service again, good value for money & the singer/guitarist who performed was good also, a real party atmosphere on the night.Can recommend this hotel.

Just had an overnight stay at the waverley en route to the highlands.
We were made really welcome - staff here are obviously well trained and were superb!
the room was nice and light and airy - we had a suite with a separate sitting area. it was very clean and the bed was comfy.
We ate in the hotel and the service and food were both excellent and were good value for money to boot.
The bar had real ales so we tried one or two.....slept well that night!

Very comfortable, well equipped room and excellent breakfast. Our only worry was the parking, but we worried needlessly, as we always managed to find a space. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
Good central location for exploring the surrounding countryside and attractions.
