Poppies Hotel was modern, very clean and the hosts were friendly. It had a full bar with numerous scotches and we had a couple beer and wine. We decided to have their bar food sampler, instead of going out to dinner. It was very good. The next day we

Another lovely weekend away in Poppies Hotel Callander. The owners John and Susan can’t do enough for you to make your stay welcoming, relaxed and comfortable. The rooms are lovely, well decorated, comfortable and very clean, the Covid precautions are very good. As someone with Coeliac Disease it’s difficult to find hotels with an excellent, tasty and safe to eat gluten free breakfast and I can say the Gluten Free breakfast/ordinary breakfasts are absolutely superb. We have stayed at this hotel many times now and I have never had any gluten adverse reaction to the breakfast and have never felt I have missed out on anything at all. 5 stars from me!

Lovely b and b . John and his wife and luke were lovely hosts . Very relaxed atmosphere nothing too much trouble . Breakfast was super the bacon was amazing and boiled eggs cooked to perfection . Room was large with a sofa seating area tea coffee hot choc in the room . Hairdryer. Comfy beds and pillows . Very clean and tidy with lots of character big sash windows . They also have a bar open 3 to 8 which is nice too just like the photos as advertised. Lots of pubs , restraunts to eat at night within walking distance .

Poppies central location is fantastic, the owners delightful and the room, breakfast and Whisky Bar all fantastic, all made for a super stay. A super spot to explore the Trossachs and Callander has some fab quirky shops too.

My in laws stayed in this wonderful hotel for a week while we stayed in our caravan at Keltie Bridge. They absolutely loved it. They enjoyed the excellent service from their friendly staff. The rooms were stunning, clean, well serviced and looked exactly as they did in their online pictures. They would be happy to stay again. The only thing that they did say was that it's not clear on any of the information they saw is that there is no evening meals available. This didn't stop them from having a wonderful break but might be a consideration to clarify on adverts.

This place was lovely and clean. It had a lovely breakfast but you do have to choose your options the previous day. We were three people that n a room and although our needs were met, the layout of the room was a bit awkward where not everyone could see the tv. That did not bother us as we were only here for a night, but might be a problem for longer stays.

I recently attended a small and intimate wedding at Poppies. The experience was flawless from start to finish. The rooms were stunning, clean and most importantly the bed was so very comfy! Our experience with the owners Susan and John was great. They were great with communication and really went above and beyond to ensure the my friends wedding day was beautiful and perfect. The food at Poppies exceeded all expectations and my only regret was not having some dinner on our arrival night - both our breakfasts and our 3 course evening meal at the wedding were outstanding! John is an extremely talented chef… we were a party of 7 and it was unanimously agreed that this hotel really is something special. We will all be back, and I can’t wait! Could not recommend this place more, and the prices (including at the hotel bar) are extremely reasonable some might say a bargain in all honesty. Looking forward to returning already and have been home only 1 week
