A bit of a shame really, because this is obviously what was once a really nice (19th Century?) hotel which has fallen on hard times. First thing to note was that it was very cheap (£34 for a double for the night, breakfast £10 extra) - we needed to get up for my father's funeral in a hurry and we...

We bought the offer from 'Late rooms'. 3 nights b&b for under £120. First thoughts were impressive building, there were road works outside but not really a problem. The parking was not ideal, round the back of the hotel with wrecked looking out houses. Now look like they are used for hotel storage, just untidy and open to anyone. Once...

After reading all the reviews mainly negative. I was not going to book the hotel but I said to myself people can be very picky and negative. So I booked a room from booking.com for 2 nights 9/10 - 11/10 and I must say it was the nicest hotel in callander. Staff were very friendly, guests all lovely, room was...

We recently spent a night here. On arrival we couldn't find the car park so I went to reception to ask. Staff seemed more preoccupied with gossiping to each other rather than helping me... Anyway once checked in we proceeded to our room, which was very basic and cold due to a draft coming in from the window which would...

Warning to dog owners who use the Dreadnought because it is pet friendly, there is now a charge for dogs. It cost me £20 extra for our 2 dogs who simply spent the night asleep on the floor! Sneaky charge too as the money was taken from my account without any explanation. Will not be using the Dreadnought again, very...

good overnight stay, the hotel especially the dining room is in dire need of an overhaul. Great food and plenty of it as well as very friendly, helpful staff more than made up for the condition of the building. Great central location to explore Callander and the trossachs, would recommend thia hotel and i will use it again.

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. Callander is the gateway to the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, making it an ideal destination for a Scottish break. ... more   less
